Description Packetloss 2003-11-21 01:22:18 UTC

Some info:
root@tommie:~# gcc --version
gcc (GCC) 3.2.3
root@tommie:~# uname -a
Linux tommie 2.4.22 #2 Wed Nov 19 21:44:46 CET 2003 i686 unknown unknown 
root@tommie:~# cat /etc/slackware-version
Slackware 9.1.0

It is a 'clean' Slackware install, execpt the installation from source of
ntp-4.2.0, procmail-3.22, rsync-2.5.6, joe-2.9.8 and arpwatch-2.1a11.

I downloaded Samba from: ftp://ftp.easynet.be/samba/samba-3.0.0.tar.gz.

So, I'm compiling from source. The first error I got was:

Compiling rpc_parse/parse_ds.c
Compiling rpc_parse/parse_spoolss.c
rpc_parse/parse_spoolss.c: In function `smb_io_doc_info_1':
rpc_parse/parse_spoolss.c:119: internal error: Segmentation fault
Please submit a full bug report,
with preprocessed source if appropriate.
See <URL:http://gcc.gnu.org/bugs.html> for instructions.
make: *** [rpc_parse/parse_spoolss.o] Error 1

then I tried to `make` samba again. Then I got this one:

Compiling rpc_parse/parse_spoolss.c
rpc_parse/parse_spoolss.c: In function `smb_io_printer_info_4':
rpc_parse/parse_spoolss.c:2633: syntax error before "if"
make: *** [rpc_parse/parse_spoolss.o] Error 1

So, I edited the end of line 2633 of rpc_parse/parse_spoolss.c. There I found 
a '+', and edited it to a ';'.

Then `make` didn't complain anymore.

If you need more info, do not hesitate to contact me.

Hi Tim,
Concerning bugID 799, I made a typo. It wasn't line #2633 I edited, but
line #2632. Sorry :(.

A signal 11 during compilation is either a bug in the compiler, or bad hardware.
 See http://www.bitwizard.nl/sig11/ for details.

The file you mention doesn't contain a + symbol at the line you mention.  Are
you sure you have an uncorrupted archive?  Can you verify the checksum of the
file you downloaded?

The signature file is at http://us1.samba.org/samba/ftp/samba-3.0.0.tar.asc and
you need to uncompress the tar file and run gpg like:

[tpot@nevada:/data]$ gpg --verify samba-3.0.0.tar.asc samba-3.0.0.tar
gpg: Signature made Thu 25 Sep 2003 11:54:24 EST using DSA key ID 2F87AF6F
gpg: Good signature from "Samba Distribution Verification Key
gpg: checking the trustdb
gpg: no ultimately trusted keys found
gpg: WARNING: This key is not certified with a trusted signature!
gpg:          There is no indication that the signature belongs to the owner.
Primary key fingerprint: 3275 F01D 6565 3A81 AE7B  320C D779 0A5F 2F87 AF6F

I know.. But I'm 100% sure it was there, otherwise I wouldn't have got the error
rpc_parse/parse_spoolss.c:2633: syntax error before "if"

Yes, I certainly did.

Well I can't explain what has happened here!  There's no sign of a syntax error
in the archive you downloaded.  The only thing I can think of is some
memory/disk corruption when unpacking the archive.  The signal 11 during
compilation does suggest you may have some hardware issues.
