Description Matt Kraai (mail address dead) 2009-08-11 10:03:00 UTC
Some of the functions in source3/lib/util_sock.c use AI_ADDRCONFIG.  On QNX 6.3.0, this macro is defined but, if it's used, getaddrinfo will fail.  This prevents smbd from opening any sockets.

If I undefine AI_ADDRCONFIG on such systems and allow lib/replace/system/network.h to define it to be 0, this works around the issue.

Fixed as 91d13b68be55728a85b3832e2da9267dbf4f2464 in master.

I think we should pick it for v3-4-test also.

Comment 3 Karolin Seeger 2009-08-17 03:52:53 UTC
Reopening bug as it should be included into the 3.4 branches.

Wow, that's ugly. I thought we got over these #ifdef __SOME_BROKEN_OS__ patches and do it with configure-tests.

I mean, I doubt it breaks anything, so from my point of view it could go into 3.4.1, but I think it needs SEVERE overhaul. Can someone please write a configure test for this?

Comment 5 Michael Adam 2009-08-17 04:05:46 UTC
ugly or not, let's fix it _now_ for 3.4.
we can still make it more beautiful in master...
Comment 6 Karolin Seeger 2009-08-17 04:13:18 UTC
Pushed, patch will be included in 3.4.1.
Closing out bug report.
