Ok, to summarize, going from a 2.3.3 install, with 3.3.11 to a
20030213-current with 4.0.14.
That -current compiles and runs fine as an initial system, with
4.0.14. Compiles cleanly with 4.1.25+patch1, but does not run.
ovdb_init -u cannot upgrade the db, despite what the man page
says. Complains that I'm trying to use 4.0.14 code on a 3.3.11 db.
ovdb_init does successfully make an empty db.
makehistory in that -current is broken. It cannot find the message-id in a
single article written into the cycbuffs by the previous system. Even
without the -b option. It ends up creating an empty history file. sm can
still read the articles if I use the token from the old history
file. Nothing wrong with the messageid, I even hexdumped it, no trailing
blanks, nothing funky.
So, -current appears to be a usable *new* system, but does *not* allow you
to migrate an old system, at least not one with cycbuffs and/or ovdb.
Now I have to take a break from being a useful member of society and
dissasemble my cube, so I can sit on the floor and work for a week while
they use my, and my coworkers parts, to build us new cubes across the
building... Once I can sit somewhere and type again, I'll see if I can get
-stable and 4.0 to work and migrate.
