I would like to ask you a question about the installation of these packages in
I have installed them and I have two warnings:
cc: "localtime.c", line 1260: warning 527: Integral value implicitly converted
to pointer in assignment.
/usr/ccs/bin/ld: (Warning) At least one PA 2.0 object file (date.o) was
detected. The linked output may not run on a PA 1.x system.
But up to here, everything is OK (every executable is in the right place, under
the /usr/local/ directory, and the PATH variable is set correctly). I set the TZ
variable to, for example, America/New_York and the date command doesn't give me
the right time.
I have checked the file /usr/bin/locale and it's a PA-RISC1.1 shared executable
dynamically linked. Maybe that's the problem. Could you tell me how can I update
the version of this file, or how can I compile the package to be able to execute
the included files for the PA 1.1?.
Nevertheless, the directory /usr/lib/locale and its subdirectories don't exist.
This could be another posible mistake. I have checked a Solaris installation and
it exists and works. There is an option in the Makefile which allows to set the
path to the "locale". I don't know what this exactly means. Is it a reference to
the executable file or a reference to the Sun-like subdirectory.
If you could tell me some suggestions or posible solutions I would really
Thank you in advance,
Luis Miguel Navas.
