<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:
<braunr> "The IPV6_PORTRANGE socket option and the conflict resolution rule
are not defined in the RFCs and should be considered implementation
<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
<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:
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?
<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
<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:
<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?
