Thanks, Jan-Frode.

It should come as no surprise that sgi engineers don't have access to
x86_64 for pcp testing, so assistance from others is most appreciated.

Tell me what could help you...

Download the source from oss.sgi.com ... try to rebuild it ... send us
patches/fixes ... try running the PCP QA (also available from
oss.sgi.com) ... etc.


Except the previous mentioned problem for compilation, i didn't noticed any special problem.
It seems that it was linked with 64 bits C library :

I only tested the pmcd daemon, but not pmlogger. I can run some QA tools as you suggested, but where can i find them? Searching for "pcp QA" on sgi.com return no result ;-)

My only limitation is that i actually MUST use SuSE  SLES9, and so can't
upgrade automake/autoconf.

I believe PCP is _in_ SLES9, and we've been working with SuSE to reduce
differences between what they include in their distribution and what's
available on oss.sgi.com.  So, I'd definitely be interested in hearing
about any problems with PCP and SLES9.

After a little verification, i can confirm that pcp is included in SLES9 for x86 but not in SLES9 for x86_64.


But if i can do anything for pcp, it will be a pleasure :-)
