Ticket #7135 (new defect)
Opened 4 years ago
python always building 32-bit on Solaris
|Reported by:||drkirkby||Owned by:||tbd|
- A Sun Blade 2000 running Solaris 10 update 7
- Sage 4.1.2.rc0
- gcc 4.4.1
- SAGE64 exported to "yes"
looking at the directory $SAGE_HOME/local/bin, we can see that python is being built as 32-bit, despite the fact that SAGE64 was set to "yes"
python: ELF 32-bit MSB executable SPARC32PLUS Version 1, V8+ Required, dynamically linked, not stripped python2.6: ELF 32-bit MSB executable SPARC32PLUS Version 1, V8+ Required, dynamically linked, not stripped
This is far from the only package building 32-bit when SAGE64 is set to "yes" on Solaris. All of the following do, and I suspect there are many others too.
mpir currently mixes 32 and 64-bit objects, so do not build at all #7132.
I will sort this package out after creating a new sage-env, which exports all the variables properly, including the flag for building 64-bit code, which is not always -m64.
Although there is no support for AIX or HP-UX in Sage yet, we could potentially add it - I personally own machines running AIX and HP-UX.
IBM's compiler on AIX uses -q64, and HP's on HP-UX uses +DD64.
The sensible way to resolve this is to add the correct flag on every platform.
