[Freeciv-Dev] [bug #20476] netdb.h conflict

2013-02-10 Thread Marko Lindqvist
Follow-up Comment #4, bug #20476 (project freeciv):

So the question is if we should drop that -lbind in general, or do we need
some magic to sometimes include it and sometimes not (I have no good ideas
what what we should be testing to make the decision)

 I suspect that the libbind4 package is my main problem, and I
 plan to remove it (but I'll wait in case there's more you'd like
 me to test);

In case this takes some time (I have higher priorities elsewhere at the
moment), it should be sufficient for you to list important bits of your system
here (Lucid, libbind4-package installed, anything else?) so I can setup it to
virtual machine for testing later.

[Freeciv-Dev] [bug #20476] netdb.h conflict

2013-02-09 Thread Hugo van der Sanden
Follow-up Comment #3, bug #20476 (project freeciv):

 Can you confirm if I got this right.

Yes, header that is included is /usr/include/netdb.h which does define
AI_NUMERICSERV.

 Meanwhile you can test if manually setting
 CPPFLAGS=-I/usr/include/bind for configure produces working
 build.

It failed, this time on functions such as inet_ntoa, I think due to conflicts
between arpa/inet.h and bind/arpa/inet.h - the latter redefines inet_ntoa to
__inet_ntoa, but then __inet_ntoa can't be found at link time.

I tried instead going the other way, to try to convince configure that I
didn't need libbind at all:


% svn diff configure.ac
Index: configure.ac
===
--- configure.ac(revision 22316)
+++ configure.ac(working copy)
@@ -1012,8 +1012,11 @@

+fi
 
 dnl Readline library and header files.
 FC_HAS_READLINE()


With that change, -lbind is no longer included in LIBS or SERVER_LIBS; for
some reason it is still included in GUI_sdl_LIBS, and I wasn't able to find
what introduces it there. But I can build successfully with
--enable-client=gtk2 (previously gtk2,sdl), start a server and a client and
have them talk to each other.

I suspect that the libbind4 package is my main problem, and I plan to remove
it (but I'll wait in case there's more you'd like me to test); I believe that
on this OS libc contains everything I'm likely to need from libbind, and quite
likely in more modern and featureful fashion.

Here's my full configure invocation now:

./configure --prefix=/opt/freeciv --enable-fcdb=mysql --enable-client=gtk2
--enable-svnrev --enable-aimodules=yes --disable-nls --enable-debug=some
--with-readline --with-x --enable-shared --disable-ipv6

Follow-up Comment #1:

Can you confirm if I got this right.

Header that gets included does define AI_NUMERICSERV, so freeciv
FC_AI_NUMERICSERV gets to set value 0x0400 despite fix to  but the library
used runtime does not support AI_NUMERICSERV.

The bug is in somewhat grey area what comes to whose fault it is. For freeciv,
I checked configure, and it explicitly links against libbind, and when doing
that it should take care that it uses also libbind headers. There's no way to
make this idiot-proof for all possible configurations, but I think I could
improve your specific case (which is one case we know for sure to exist).
Meanwhile you can test if manually setting CPPFLAGS=-I/usr/include/bind for
configure produces working build.

Setting FC_AI_NUMERICSERV depending on what's available was introduced in bug
#18871.

First attempt for a fix. I could only test that it didn't break it for me. Can
you test if it fixes it for you?

Details:

After building against SVN @22265 on Ubuntu Ubuntu 10.04.4 LTS (Lucid),
attempting to start the server immediately bailed out with the error Server:
bad address: (none):5556.

After some digging, this turned out to be a conflict between two different
netdb.h files - /usr/include/netdb.h comes from libc6 (Ubuntu package libc-dev
version 2.11.1-0ubuntu7.11 from the eglibc project), and includes a
definition:

# define AI_NUMERICSERV 0x0400  /* Don't use name resolution.  */


I also have /usr/include/bind/netdb.h, which comes from libbind (Ubuntu
package libbind4, version 6.0-1, from the libbind project). This is the
library that actually provides getaddrinfo(3), and does *not* define or
support NUMERICSERV; attempting to pass ai_flags with 0x400 set always returns
EAI_BADFLAGS.

I don't know whether the error here is mine, Ubuntu's, Freeciv's, or that of
one of the two source projects.

1) It was made harder to track down the problem because net_lookup_getaddrinfo
in utility/netintf.c does not report or return the actual error. It would be
useful if it could be modified to log the error, eg with:

  ... else {
printf(getaddrinfo: error '%s' (%d)\n, gai_strerror(err), err); 
  }


2) I do not know if the configure probes could be enhanced to check for both
netdb.h and bind/netdb.h and make an intelligent choice between them. For
now I've just hacked my netintf.c, which has got me a little further; I've not
yet checked if I also need to change the other uses of netdb.h.

3) An alternative would be to support a build hint HAVE_AI_NUMERICSERV, but I
suspect it will generally be hard for someone building freeciv to discover
they should override this to false.

Hope this helps,

Hugo
