Forum OpenACS Development: Response to OpenACS 4 fails to install

Posted by Don Baccus on
Ahhh...good.  I'll look into checking for that in the installer, good idea.

I've got another set of changes to make to the driver then I'll announce that folks should upgrade (I'll escape backslashes in the bind variable emulation code, which will cause strings inserted into PG that contain backslashes to act as though PG were SQL92-compliant rather than a C clone in this case).

The query buffers for the insertion of pseudo large-objects (the so-called driver BLOB hack) were far too small.  I'd sized them for the select queries and boneheadedly didn't resize them when copying the declarations for the inserts.  This was causing the driver to crash AOLserver under IRIX - if you recall that thread the person trying to get it working enganged me in an ongoing e-mail dialogue in which between us we finally figured out the problem.

It's just luck that it's not crashing in other environments.
