The testsuite of 8.3 beta 2 fails on the Alpha architecture (versions
up to 8.2 worked fine).
We redid some of the float error handling for 8.3, in hopes of getting
closer to the IEEE standard behavior for NaNs and infinities and so on.
I guess that isn't working on your Alpha. I have a vague recollection
that Alphas use non-IEEE floats so maybe this is not too surprising.
Can you grant one of us access to the machine to work on it?
I don't own any alpha machine, but maybe Frank, Steven, or anyone from
the Debian alpha porter list can create a temporary account for you?
Or poke into it yourself?
There is no developer accessible alpha porter box for Debian
Since Debian is having some problems with its alpha development machine,
the Gentoo/Alpha port is happy to offer some help with this problem.
We can provide with shell account access (or even a chroot) in our
development machine (AlphaServer ES40) for debugging this PostgreSQL
bug. If it only happens on Debian, I could create a debian chroot for
Gentoo/Alpha Team can be reached by mail: email@example.com or by IRC in
Thanks and feel free to ask if you need something more.
