|OpenLDAP Faq-O-Matic : OpenLDAP Software FAQ : Installation : Platform Hints : Linux : Linux/Alpha : config.guess fails on my Alpha SX164, what do I do?|
As long as your system is supported by Linux, OpenLDAP should compile and run successfully. However, if you have an "SX164"-based machine, you may need to specify the following options to ./configure:
This is not a bug in OpenLDAP. This is a bug in autoconf: autoconf correctly identifies SX164 machines (and presumably other systems with 21164PC processors), but does not "support" them, causing ./configure to fail. The options above force autoconf to use the "EV56", or 21164a processor options, which are fully compatible with the 21164PC.
You will only need these options if you are using an SX164 system. The problem
may be Red Hat Linux specific; it is unknown whether other distributions
suffer from the same bug.
