Hey folks. I have a wierd question here regarding getaddrinfo(). I recently installed gkrellm2 from the ports, and found that it was misbehaving with remote email checks. It had no problems when being run on the local machine running the mail server, but from work, it seemed to just do nothing.
Well, naturally I went to the source. Well, one of the authors, anyway. Bill Wilson was very helpful. After I helped him narrow down the problem, he sent me the following links: http://sources.redhat.com/ml/bug-glibc/2002-04/msg00210.html http://list-archive.xemacs.org/xemacs-beta/200007/msg00380.html I know they seem to be more related to Linux, but they also seem to apply here. He provided a patch that basically undefined the HAVE_GETADDRINFO precompiler macro. This fixed the problem. The reason I'm posting it here, is it appears this may be some obscure problem in glibc, and I'm wondering if anyone else has any insight in this problem. I looked at GETADDRINFO(3) and it seems to imply that the gkrellm2 behavior is correct, but it still doesn't work. Anyone have any insight to this? Is it really a problem with glib, or is this something that should just be ignored for now? Sorry if this is the wrong venue for this question, If it belongs elsewhere, please let me know.
