How to

in gopher2_1_1/gopherd/Makefile:

replaced original SFWAISOBJ with:


SFWAISOBJ       = ../regexp/libregexp.a ../ir/libinv.a ../ir/libclient.a \
                  ../ir/libwais.a ../ir/liblocal.a ../ir/libsig.a \
                  ../ui/source.o ../lib/libftw.a
(solaris & SunOS):

SFWAISOBJ       = ../ir/libinv.a ../ir/libclient.a ../ir/libwais.a \
                  ../ir/liblocal.a ../ir/libsig.a ../ui/source.o \
                  ../regexp/libregexp.a ../lib/libftw.a

in gopher2_1_1/gopherd/waisgopher.c: change


run configure in freeWAIS-sf-1.0

For the following configure questions, 'required' means that I had to use that value to get gopher to work with freewais-sf. 'doesn't matter' means that the decision is up to you...

Do you want to use your systems regexp.h (no)?  no <-- required
Will you have HEADLINE files greater than 16 MB (no)?   no <-- doesn't matter
Use your systems ctype (no)?    yes <-- required
Do you want to compile with -DLOCAL_SEARCH (yes)?       yes <-- required
Do you want to use the modified URL handling (no)?      no <-- doesn't matter
Where should the installation go (/usr/local/wais)? (specify your own path)
Do you want to use shm cache (no)?      no <-- doesn't matter
Disable the UDP packet sending (no)?    no <-- doesn't matter

make freewais-sf-1.0 ...create symbolic links to in gopher2_1_1 to the appropriate freewais-sf directories...

In gopher2_1_1:

ln -s ../freeWAIS-sf-1.0/ir
ln -s ../freeWAIS-sf-1.0/ui
ln -s ../freeWAIS-sf-1.0/lib
ln -s ../freeWAIS-sf-1.0/regexp

Edit gopher2_1_1/Makefile.conf gopher2_1_1/conf.h as necessary for your system and site.

Make sure to uncomment -DFREEWAIS_SF in Makefile.conf !

make gopher...

In the case of an index type not recognized error, test an index on an database that has been reindexed using the newly compiled waisindex in freeWAIS-sf-1.0/ir (as opposed to gopherindex) just to make sure that there really still is a problem...

Use "waisindex -export ..." It is important that the host and port information is compiled into the *.src file, EVEN IF THE SEARCHES ARE LOCAL! I have my gopher, wais , and all the databases all on the same machine. It is also important that the waisserver is running.
