2. Compiling Polygraph

2.1 I had a hard time compiling Polygraph 2.5.0 on Redhat 6.2 Linux

We tested version 2.5.1 on our Linux box:

$ uname -a
Linux 2.2.13-7mdk #8 Tue Jan 4 01:30:09 MST 2000 i686 unknown
$ g++ -v
Reading specs from /usr/lib/gcc-lib/i686-pc-linux-gnu/2.8.1/specs
gcc version 2.8.1

We have seen some internal gcc errors when compiling on Linux. Those are probably fixed in more recent gcc versions. If not, let us know; we have a patch with simple workarounds.

Please understand that we will make reasonable efforts to port Polygraph to whatever platforms people are using, but we cannot guarantee that it will work (correctly) everywhere, especially if we do not get bug reports. We use and recommend FreeBSD.
