  • I am changing my policy re: base build system.
  • I took the builddate 1241 - as the base date - as this includes AIX 5.3 TL12 (SP07). However, my default build will be on AIX 6.1. AIX 5.3 is a special request.
  • This means these packages will install on these - and later versions of AIX (including AIX 7.2, any release).
Known Service Packs
-------------------
6100-07-06-1241
6100-06-10-1241
7100-01-06-1241
7100-00-08-1241

  • By request I will build for:
5300-12-07-1241

FYI: It is not just the version of AIX that needs to be increasing - also the builddate of a package needs to be equal, or later that the builddate that the software was packaged on (not it's own builddate). This is to ensure binary comparability with the standard libraries provided by IBM AIX (in particular, /usr/lib/libc.a and related libraries).
