Here are my compiling notes.
I find gcc the best for compiling both MySQL and Perl modules as
Compiling Applications for SCO Open Server 5.0.5
Compiling the Tools
This CD contains compilers and tools in the sco-downloads directory that
can be loaded using the SCO 'custom' utility.
The SDK I used was compiled as follows, and resides in the "custom"
To install them, use "custom" and the media image option..
If you wish to compile them yourself, here are the instructions.
You will need the SCO development system.
You may check the "scripts" directory for some "zz" scripts to help you out.
To compile gcc-2.95.2:
load SCO cc
extract gcc-2.95.2 to a work directory
To compile make:
extract make-3.79 to a work direxctory
To compile binutils:
PATH=/usr/tools/bin:$PATH ; export PATH
extract binutils-2.9.1 to a work directory
To compile MySql you will need gcc-2.95.2 described above, along with
FSU-pthreads-3.5c from mysql.com. You will find "custom" loadable copies
in the 'custom' directory.
You will also need to load the linker and libraries off your SCO 5.0.5 CD.
I use the following script to compile and install MySql.
CC=gcc CXX=gcc ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/mysql
To compile perl:
edit hints/sco.sh and change:
I use the following script to compile and install perl.
sh Configure -Dcc=gcc -Dprefix=/usr/local/perl -d
Compiling Perl Modules
To compile DBI and Msql-Mysql-modules just follow the directions found
in the packages. No makefiles need to be edited after running 'perl
