Description Paul Bredbury 2006-09-28 00:23:31 UTC
Hi, here is a tidied ebuild which fixes econf for the nasty "mio unable to listen" errors that jabberd reports when ipv6 is compiled-in but not usable. I've added two new debugging USE flags.

jabberd-1.4.4-r3 always segfaults when a user tries to connect, although jabberd-1.4.3-r5 works fine. I've tried tweaking jabberd.xml to no avail, and having the jabber user recreated. This is with the USE flags:

-ipv6 -mysql -postgres -ssl

This bug is relevant to the tracker bug #149358.

Modified version commited, few comments:

 * S="${WORKDIR}/${P}" <- useles, I missed it too ;)
 * mv "${D}"/etc/jabber/jabber{,d}.xml and mv "${D}"/etc/jabber/jabber{,d}.xml.dist <- I know few bash tricks too, but it doesn't help readability
 * ewarn about separate transports - this is since some time, so no need to ewarn, einfo is enought.

Apart from that thanks for help.

About segfaulting: compile with debug enabled and run it under gdb. I'll try to reproduce it.

  Add various fixes from upstream.

I've added various patches from upstream SVN - it fixes not only this bug, but (as you can see from the ammount of them) also few others. I was able to succesfuly register. Can you please test it? Just sync portage (in about 1 hour) and re-emerge jabberd-1.4.4-r3
