The following AIX-specific procedures were used to configure a pSeries 
Server for VSX 5.2.4 running in UNIX03 mode.

The system used for test returned the following when uname -a was executed:

AIX unix17 2 5 000987FA4C00

User IDs were added to /etc/passwd for the following test IDs:

vsx0::2000:2000::/tsuites/VSX5/vsx5:/bin/ksh
vsx1::2001:2001::/tsuites/VSX5/vsx1:/bin/ksh
vsx2::2002:2002::/tsuites/VSX5/vsx2:/bin/ksh

Group IDs were added to /etc/group for the following test IDs:

The following was added to /etc/security/limits:

vsx0:
   fsize = -1


Tetware 3.6 lite was installed in directory /tsuites/VSX5. TET was configured 
by the following steps:

       o chmod +wx configure
   
       o edit configure; add the following three lines for AIX 5

         *-ibm-aix5*)
         fname=aix43.mk
         ;;

       o execute ./configure -t lite. 

Then TET was build by the following steps:

       o cd src

       o edit defines.mk; replace _XOPEN_SOURCE=500 with _XOPEN_SOURCE=600 in 
         all instances. Change c89 to /usr/vac/bin/c99.

       o make ; make install.

VSXGEN 3.1 was unpacked in directory /tsuites/VSX5/vsx5.

VSX5 5.2.4 was  unpacked in directory /tsuites/VSX5/vsx5. A "chown
-R vsx0.vsxg0. /tsuites/VSX5" was issued to ensure vsx0 user and vsxg0 group
ownership of all VSX5 files.

The file SRC/common/drivers/Makefile.org was edited, changing the following
line in driver.C stanzas:

         $(CC) -o $@ $(OFILES) $(COFILES) $(TCM) $(LIBS) $(SYSLIBS) $(LDFLAGS)
to
         $(CC) -o driver_tmp $(OFILES) $(COFILES) $(TCM) $(LIBS) $(SYSLIBS)
            $(LDFLAGS)

the following line was then added after the above line.

         mv driver_tmp $@

The test suite filesystem was /tsuites/VSX5. The logical volume name was
/dev/lv27 and the following tetexec.cfg entries were updated to reflect this
information; VSX_BLKDEV_FILE and VSX_CHRDEV_FILE. The major and minor numbers 
for /dev/lv27 were 44 (0x002c) and 28 (0x001C).

The test filesystem was /tsuites/testfs/vsx. The logical volume name was
/dev/lv01 and the following tetexec.cfg entries were updated to reflect this
information; VSX_MOUNT_DEV, VSX_NOSPC_DEV, and VSX_ROFS. The major and minor 
numbers for /dev/lv01 were 44 (0x002c) and 03 (0x0003).

The Large File enabled filesystem was /tsuites/testfs/LargeFileSystem. The
logical name was /dev/lv02 and the following tetexec.cfg was updated to
reflect this information: VSX5_LARGEFILE_DIR. The major and minor numbers
for /dev/lv02 were 44 (0x002c) and 4 (0x0004).

The loopback ports were supplied using the IBM 8 port serial adapter. The two
ports were created using the following commands:

mkdev -c tty  -t 'tty' -s 'rs232' -p 'sa4' -w '0' -a speed='38400' \
      -a runmodes='brkint,icrnl,opost,onlcr,tab3,echo,icanon,isig,cread' \
      -a eol='' -a eol2=''

mkdev -c tty  -t 'tty' -s 'rs232' -p 'sa4' -w '1' -a speed='38400' \
      -a runmodes='brkint,icrnl,opost,onlcr,tab3,echo,icanon,isig,cread' \
      -a eol='' -a eol2=''

The tty devices created were /dev/tty0 and /dev/tty1 and the baud rate for
the tty devices was set to 38400. The entries VSX_TERMIOS_TTY,
VSX_TERMIOS_LOOP and VSX_TERMIOS_SPEED in tetexec.cfg were updated to
reflect this information. These ports were connected with a null modem
cable.

The login terminal was a pts device, /dev/pts/0. The tetexec.cfg entry,
VSX_TTYNAME was set to reflect this information. The following responses
were given to the config.sh questions:


Block and character special devices were created with the following
commands:

mknod /dev/vsx_ucd c 999 0
mknod /dev/vsx_ubd b 999 1

These devices were chown'd to uid.gid vsx0.vsxg0. The entries for
VSX_BLKDEV_FILE and VSX_CHRDEV_FILE in tetexec.cfg were set to reflect this
information.

The VSX5 locales were installed per the "VSX 5.2.4 User and Installation
Guide" using the AIX localedef() utility. The VSX5 locales installed were
WCL1, WCL2, VSX4L0, VSX4L1, VSX4L2, VSX4L3 and VSX4L3@dict. The VSX4 locale
converters installed were WCL1_WCL2 and WCL2_WCL1. The LANG variable was set
to "C" locale in the .profile file.


The following responses were given to the config.sh questions:

test mode: UNIX03
subset: base6 dynl lfs mse
name of the compiler: /usr/vac/bin/c99
command line options: -lm
additional libraries: -liconv
dependencies between shared objects: n
unresolved references supported: n
compiler options for dlopen(): -lm
link editor options: -brtl -bexpall -bautoimp
different off_t size: large
compiling programs with a large off_t: -D_LARGE_FILES 
type name for maximum value of off_t: long long
mountable device: /dev/lv01

After running config.sh, the SRC/vsxconfig.h file was edited. the line
reading "#define NSIG (-1)" was changed to "#define NSIG (64)".

The src/userintf.c file was edit and the following lines were removed;

#undef _POSIX_SOURCE    /* don't want namespace restrictions in here */
#undef _POSIX_C_SOURCE
#undef _XOPEN_SOURCE

#define _ALL_SOURCE     /* change to suitable feature test macro */


The VSX libraries and utilities were then built by executing the command: su
-c make

VSX5 5.2.4 was then built.

AIX paging space allocation method was set to early allocation in order to
comply with the UNIX malloc specification. This is done by the executing
the following commands prior to issuing the tcc -e -s scen.exec command:

export PSALLOC=early.

The UNIX behaviour is invoked by executing the following command prior to 
issueing the tcc -e -s scen.exec command.

export XPG_SUS_ENV=ON

VSX 5.2.4 was then run.

The following is the complete VSX 5.2.4 configuration from the
tetexec.cfg file.
