I don't think I have heard any reports about ia64 before this one.
Ia64 has certain restrictions with respect to memory access alignment.
I would hope varnish respects those, but absent testing on the actual
platform, that may not be the case.
If you are willing to do a bit of work to help debug/diagnose what
goes wrong, we can try to get it working.
The first thing you need to do, is built Varnish from source,
pull the -trunk version with svn, and compile using:
If that fails, we need to fix that before anything else.
When it works, then next is a very basic test:
./varnishd -C -b 127.0.0.1
Ideally this should return a bunch of C-code from the compiled
If you get errors here, we need to get those sorted.
Next try to see if it actually can be started:
./varnishd -d -b varnish-cache.org -a :8080
Again, if that works, try to pull some data through it.
In a different window:
curl -v -o /dev/null http://localhost:8080/
That should give you a 302 reponse back...

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
