When trying to install mindi on RHEL4/U4/IA64, I get the following error :

== [root@linux01 mondo]# tar xzf mindi-1.0.9.tar.gz [root@linux01 mondo]# ./ -bash: ./ No such file or directory [root@linux01 mondo]# cd mindi-1.0.9 [root@linux01 mindi-1.0.9]# ./ mindi 1.0.9-r780 will be installed under /usr/local Creating target directories ...

Looks like it cannot locate the which is located at the right place : [root@linux01 mindi-1.0.9]# ls /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.5/ia64-linux-thread-multi/CORE/ /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.5/ia64-linux-thread-multi/CORE/

Hello Louis !

You're right. There is an issue on ia64 for the build. In fact it's because of the -static flag, there is a need for a libperl.a file in fact :-(

And tha tfile is not part of RHEL4. I had to recompile it on my side, and you may find it on mondorescue ftp site.

Of course this is a hack that needs to be changed.

This is fixed in 2.2.5 beta (that dependency doesn't exist anymore). However the Itanium port is not completely finished even if manually working.
