    unable to unpack/load service pack 1738

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 18.01

    I just downloaded, using new util_sp ftp facility, onto a new server, a mirror of our live installation.
    I have attempted to unpack the service pack, using util/sp/5/1 and it generated the following error:

    Please select [0]: 1
    Are you sure you want to install Service Pack 1738 Y/[N] Y
    Could not find gcc prefix. Exiting.
    press <Enter> to continue

    at the previous step it had declared:
    installation file detected
    Service Pack 1738.
    Binary SP file found for SunOS-old
    Options fast = N initial = N

    We've solved the problem by adding /usr/sfw/bin/ ahead of /usr/local/bin and moving /usr/sfw/lib in front of other gcc libraries in the PATH line in aleph_start. The SP is now installed (this was done while were testing).
