Michael,

We want to use the TIFF library on a DEC Alpha, which is a 64 bit machine, to use for InterViews (and xv). Version 3.0 crashes. Have the problems been solved in TIFF library release 3.2 (I did not find a clue in the README file)?

Release 3.2 does NOT work on the AXP platform (except for a patched version I once made myself), but I just installed release 3.30beta (alpha 002) which is alpha-aware and seems to work fine.

However, to get it through the OSF/1 cc, you'll need to carry out a few patches. I've taken myself the freedom to attach them to this mail (not a lot of lines).

Patches for libtiff 3.30beta (alpha 002) on the AXP platform:

First copy Makefile.sun to Makefile.axp. Then apply the patches and run "make -f Makefile.axp"

The patches to the c-files are really a bug fix... (Sam! if you're reading this, send me a note, otherwise I'll mail these patches to you some other day).
