+## IRC, freenode, #hurd, 2014-02-19
+ <pere> hi. I'm trying to port libtirpc to get rcpbind on hurd, and am
+ unable to find IPV6_PORTRANGE and IPV6_PORTRANGE_LOW. is this a known
+ problem with a known fix?
+ <braunr> what are they supposed to be ?
+ <pere> braunr: found them described in <URL:
+ http://www.daemon-systems.org/man/ip6.4.html >.
+ <braunr> "The IPV6_PORTRANGE socket option and the conflict resolution rule
+ are not defined in the RFCs and should be considered implementation
+ <braunr> "
+ <braunr> hm
+ <braunr> if we have that, they're very probably not accessible from outside
+ our network stack
+ <pere> needed feature on hurd, in other words...
+ <braunr> why ?
+ <pere> If I remember correctly, SO_PEERCRED is also missing?
+ <braunr> yes ..
+ <braunr> that one is important
+ <pere> braunr: you wonder why the IPV6_PORTRANGE socket option was created?
+ <braunr> i wonder why it's needed
+ <braunr> does linux have it ?
+ <pere> yes, linux got it.
+ <braunr> same name ?
+ <pere> it make it possible for some services to work with some
+ firewalls. :)
+ <pere> yes, same name, as far I can tell.
+ <braunr> they could merely bind ports explicitely, couldn't they ?
+ <pere> not always.
+ <braunr> or is it for servers on creation of a client socket ?
+ <pere> see <URL:
+ http://www.stacken.kth.se/lists/heimdal-discuss/2000-11/msg00002.html >
+ for an example I came across.
+ <braunr> i don't find these macros on linux :/
+ <pere> how strange. libtirpc build on linux.
+ <braunr> is there a gitweb or so somewhere ?
+ <braunr> i can't find it on sf :/
+ <pere> for <URL: http://sourceforge.net/projects/libtirpc >, you mean?
+ <braunr> yes
+ <pere> no idea.
+ <braunr> are you looking at upstream 0.2.4 or a particular debian package ?
+ <pere> I'm looking at the debian package.
+ <braunr> let me take a look
+ <pere> http://paste.debian.net/82971/ is my first draft patch to get the
+ source building.
+ <braunr> ok so
+ <braunr> in src/bindresvport.c
+ <braunr> if you look carefully, you'll see that these _PORTRANGE macros are
+ used in non linux code
+ <braunr> not very portable but it explains why you hit the problem
+ <braunr> try using #if defined (__linux__) || defined(__GNU__)
+ <braunr> also, i think we intend to implement SCM_CREDS, not SO_PEERCRED
+ <braunr> but consider we have neither for now
+ <pere> ah, definitely a simpler fix.
+ <braunr> pere: btw, see
+ <pere> <URL: https://bugs.debian.org/739557 > with patch reporte.d
+## IRC, freenode, #hurd, 2014-02-20
+ <pere> new libtirpc with hurd fixes just uploaded to debian. should fix
+ the rpcbind build too.
+## IRC, OFTC, #debian-hurd, 2014-02-20
+ <pere> hm, rpcbind built with freshly patched libtirpc fail to work on
+ hurd. no idea why.
+ <pere> running 'rpcinfo -p' show 'rpcinfo: can't contact portmapper: RPC:
+ <teythoon> o_O
+ <pere> I have no idea how to debug it. :(
+ <pere> anyway, I've found that rpcinfo is the broken part. rpcbind work,
+ when I test it from a remote machine.
+## IRC, OFTC, #debian-hurd, 2014-02-21
+ <pere> failing rpcinfo -p on hurd reported as <URL:
+ http://bugs.debian.org/739674 >. Anyone got a clue how to debug it?
