globus_core should be made to support linux on sparc64 hw.
I have made a new globus_core with a potential fix, but has no machine to test
it on. Please download GPT and globus_core from
http://www.isi.edu/~rynge/sparc64/ and try to build it:
- Set GPT_LOCATION and GLOBUS_LOCATION
- Install GPT (./build_gpt)
- Build globus_core in verbose mode and save the log:
gpt-build -verbose globus_core-*.tar.gz gcc64dbg 2>&1 | tee build.log
- attach build log to this bug.
Once the build log looks good, I'll commit the fix to CVS.

cp globus_core-4.26.tar.gz $GPT_LOCATION/etc/gpt/globus_core-src.tar.gz
and then build globus_core.

Here is the build.log after the replacement of globus_core with the
Thanks Enrico, that looks much better.
This means that you can probably make a successful Globus install, but I'm not
sure if the result is actually 64bit binaries or not. I will try to get a
sparc64 box up and running here, so I can get more details.
Thanks Mats, if you need a ssh account on my sparc64 machine please tell me and
I will create one for your tests.
In the meantime I will do some compilation tests with your fixed globus_core
Fixes commited to globus_4_0_branch and head.
Enrico, you can make an installer with these changes by following the
instructions at http://www.globus.org/toolkit/docs/development/remote-cvs.html
