Description Radek Bíba 2007-02-05 16:46:19 UTC
Description of problem:
The built-in testsuite does not work on s390x and x86_64. First of all,
/usr/share/doc/postgresql-7.4.13/README.rpm-dist suggests cd'ing to
/usr/lib/pgsql/test/regress, but postgresql-test uses /usr/lib64/... on
64bit arches. Secondly, if you go to /usr/lib64/pgsql/test/regress, pg_regress
fails anyway:

============== installing PL/pgSQL                    ==============
createlang: language installation failed: ERROR:  could not access file
"/usr/lib/pgsql/plpgsql": No such file or directory pg_regress: createlang

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. see above
Actual results:
see above

Expected results:

Additional info:
Just out of curiosity, I tried to hack pg_regress to use
pkglibdir='/usr/lib64/pgsql' but many tests failed. Then I tried to revert
this hack and simply create a symlink from /usr/lib64/pgsql to /usr/lib/psql
and everything was great. Not sure if this is correct, though.

Comment 1 Tom Lane 2007-02-05 17:16:48 UTC
Yeah, this works in PG 8.0 and up but nobody ever bothered to fix it in 7.4.
I suppose if we're going to ship the postgresql-test RPM then we ought to make
some effort to make it work out-of-the-box ...
