Rebol for Openbsd 3.4

 [1/3] from: reboler::bol::com::br at: 24-Dec-2003 13:41

Hi Folks!, I really don't know why is so different the versions of OpenBSD 3.0/3.3/3.4.. My ISP was using OpenBSD 3.0, I've download the last version of my Rebol for OpenBSD 3.3, but unfortunately rebol for OpenBSD 3.3 was not running on OpenBSD 3.0. Then I asked my ISP to upgrade the systems.. What a surprise.!! The Rebol for OpenBSD 3.3 is not running on OpenBSD 3.4!! I receive the message "Wrong Architecture" Well, How can I get out of this.. months and months bothering the sysadmin to upgrade the system.. well :((((( Is there anybody suffering with the same problem? Thanks in advance. Best Regards and Merry Christimas for all !!! --DJ

DJ, You probably can get Rebol/Core for 3.3 to run on 3.0. You just need to link to the proper libc. I will try to test this and let the list know. Regarding 3.4-- the problem is that RT needs to generate new distros. OpenBSD has changed from a.out binary format to ELF. ELF was used for all the other architectures (68K, PowerPC, Sparc) and a.out was used for the x86 architecture. Due to this change at the core of the OpenBSD for x86, we need a new distro of rebol. I wanted to request this new obsd build to RT, but I have not done it yet. I want Carl to keep focused in bringing View 1.3, but maybe it doesn't take that much time. I will send an email to Carl or Cindy and ask them. Merry Xmas and Happy New Year from a real silent lurker.
