[Monetdb-developers] MonetDB on SUSE

Hi Sjoerd and Niels,
Thank you for the help!
It turns out the best way is to install all the openssl-devel, pcre-devel, libxml2-devel.  Compiled those libraries and use them is not easy task, my guess is that the header file is not in default place. The XXX_CFLAGS maybe only used in make phase, not in ./configure phase.
Now the database is up and running even with 32 out of 1189 SQL testing fails.
Best Regards,

We do not support Suse since we don't have a license.  Having said that,
I did try it out a month or so ago and it did work.  I just used the
Suse SDK to get all necessary libraries.  For PCRE that was
pcre-devel-7.8-2.18.  I have not tried to compile any other versions, so
I can't say for sure what is the problem.

You could take a look at the file config.log and see what it has to say
about the tests that configure does for PCRE.
