Description Jason Waldhelm 2011-06-13 18:15:17 UTC
emerge seems to ignore --bind-address= wget option when placed in the FETCHCOMMAND or RESUMECOMMAND (/etc/make.conf).  I've also placed bind_address= in /etc/wgetrc and in ~/.wgetrc with the same result (the option seems to be ignored).  The FTP traffic still appears to be coming from the eth0 address instead of the ip address i specify using the bind_address or --bind-address option.  I am using a BINHOST if that matters.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set --bind-address (via FETCHCOMMAND) or bind_address in wgetrc files
2. Watch the fetch traffic not come from the ip address you want

Comment 1 Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2011-06-13 23:48:03 UTC
The binhost code doesn't use FETCHCOMMAND to fetch the package metadata. Instead, it uses python's urlopen function, so maybe that's that source of your trouble. 

When actually fetching the binary packages themselves (not the metadata), FETCHCOMMAND is use.
Comment 2 Jason Waldhelm 2011-06-14 13:42:17 UTC
Then has something changed in the handling of this between 2.2.0_alpha6 and _alpha40?  I have machines using the same BINHOST configuration on _alpha6 that work just fine.
Comment 3 Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2011-06-14 16:31:51 UTC
Nothing has really changed. However, this fallback code was added which calls FETCHCOMMAND_$PROTOCOL if urlopen fails:;a=commit;h=53f096c5d72dd15336fdf921f29ceae9b5842148

If the behavior has changed, it might be due to upgrading to a new version of python with different urlopen behavior.
Comment 4 Jason Waldhelm 2011-06-14 17:09:11 UTC
The working one is on python-2.6 and the "broken" is on python-2.7
Comment 5 Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2011-06-14 17:48:19 UTC
As a workaround, you might be able to use the FETCHCOMMAND_$PROTOCOL fallback that I mentioned in comment #3. In order to do that, you can define FETCHCOMMAND_HTTP=${FETCHCOMMAND} in make.conf (or do that for whatever protocol you happen to be using).
Comment 6 Jason Waldhelm 2011-06-16 09:56:45 UTC
I must not be doing something properly.

I added to make.conf:

and added "--bind-address=" to FETCHCOMMAND, yet still have problems.

I'm not sure I'm understanding how to set FETCHCOMMAND_* correctly.
Comment 7 Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2020-09-06 18:43:57 UTC
FETCHCOMMAND has been mostly ignored since we added Package index support in 2007:

For awhile we did use FETCHCOMMAND_HTTPS for versions of python that did not support certificate/hostname verification (bug 668302):

Marking as a duplicate of bug 668302 since there's newer discussion there.
