Hi, I've run afoul of PR 67723, which seems to also affect the reading of legacy BSD dump files in addition to breaking the -c switch. To get around this problem, and prevent my having to change horses mid-stream and downrev my OS to 4.10, I thought I'd just compile the 4.10 restore from source on my 5.2.1 system.
I removed the -DRRESTORE from CFLAGS in the makefile since I don't need remote functionality, but now am confronted with the following error. While eerily familiar from past porting issues, I can't place the source of the problem macro. Note that I am building in /usr/local/src/4.10/sbin to avoid risking pollution of the 5.2.1 source tree. I didn't spot any path problems with this, but I'm suspicious since I've got what seems to be a missing include file problem. Any and all pointers and suggestions appreciated. Arguably, this question should have gone to -current, but since there is already a PR, I thought I'd first try a list with more tolerance for shenanigans like my attempted cross-build. :-) Of course if anyone knows of patches for the 5.2.1 restore, well, sign me up! Many TIAs, Paul P.S. If anyone thinks the binary of the 4.10 restore would work, I'd be happy to give that a whirl P.P.S. Also, if anyone on the dev team thinks it worthwhile, I'd be happy to submit an update to 67723 with details on the additional errant behavior I've run afoul of ---[snip]--- [milo2:4.10/sbin/restore]# make Warning: Object directory not changed from original /local/src/4.10/sbin/restore cc -O -pipe -mcpu=pentiumpro -I/local/src/4.10/sbin/restore/../../libexec/rlogin d -c restore.c restore.c: In function `listfile': restore.c:66: error: `NBBY' undeclared (first use in this function) restore.c:66: error: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once restore.c:66: error: for each function it appears in.) restore.c: In function `addfile': restore.c:87: error: `NBBY' undeclared (first use in this function) restore.c: In function `deletefile': restore.c:130: error: `NBBY' undeclared (first use in this function) restore.c: In function `removeoldleaves': restore.c:178: error: `NBBY' undeclared (first use in this function) restore.c: In function `nodeupdates': restore.c:239: error: `NBBY' undeclared (first use in this function) restore.c: In function `findunreflinks': restore.c:535: error: `NBBY' undeclared (first use in this function) *** Error code 1 Stop in /local/src/4.10/sbin/restore. ---[snip]--- Paul's Fone Company http://www.palas.com [EMAIL PROTECTED] Terabit routing, Peering, Metro Ethernet, Content Networking, CCIE _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
