XLC woot

Unread postby porter » Wed Jun 25, 2008 12:39 am

I now finally have a AIX 5.3 box working and am able to run the 60 day trial of XLC 9 for AIX.

It's like entering a timewarp using xlc_r again as the compiler.

So now I'm wondering how the 60 day limit is calculated. Is it from download of the trial or the actual installation. If it's the installation I'm happy to rebuild the box from scratch every 60 days just to run xlc.

Has anyone ever tried to contact IBM to see if it would be possible to negotiate some kind of hobbyist license for xlC?

I can now confirm a remove of XLC followed by install does not reset the clock but reinstalling OS and then XLC does.
