Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 10919
ipx_configure fails socket() call: "socket: invalid argument"
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:13:24 EDT
We never tried Netware under 6.1.
and recently upgraded to 6.2.
Our goal: Connect to an existing Netware printer as a client.
We manually loaded ncpfs.o with `insmod`
and tried to run ipx_configure. The following message appeared:
/sbin/ipx_configure: socket: Invalid argument
I created a small program with the same socket() call:
s = socket(AF_IPX, SOCK_DGRAM, AF_IPX);
and got the same result from socket().
I upgraded the ncpfs RPM package but it was no help.
It seems like the AF_IPX family is missing from the Redhat 6.2 distribution
or the HOW-TOs are missing a step.
Please asist ASAP.
Grab the latest modutils from rawhide; it has the proper
alias for the ipx module.
Alternatively, run 'modprobe ipx' before trying to use
