Hi, A Debian GNU/kFreeBSD porter, Petr Salinger reported the following bug against the Debian package. Please Cc email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org in replies. --------------------------- the current version fails to build on GNU/kFreeBSD. It is due to failed tests. Unfortunately, tests assume some variant of "struct sockaddr". This variant is not used on BSD* systems. The linux one have at the beginning "short family", but BSD* systems have "char length; char family". It looks like it would be better to use sockaddr_in() for constructing needed parameters. With the patch bellow the test suite passes on GNU/kFreeBSD. It would be nice if you can inform upstream about this problem, there are also needed similar changes in examples. --------------------------- The patch attached addresses "pack vs. sockaddr_in" only for tests. The examples could get a bit of porting effort too. Thanks, dam Debian Perl Group -- dam JabberID: email@example.com
