Description of problem:
Emacs+Tamago requires to connect FreeWnn jserver over TCP/IP port 22273,
no matter connection between local or remote.
Original FreeWnn 1.1.1 a017 do support this connection as default, but
FreeWnn package of Fedora Core1 is arranged not to support TCP/IP:22273.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install FreeWnn, and let it activate with "setup" command.
2.$ netstat -a
3.check TCP/IP connection and make sure that port 22273, wnn4, nor
wnn6 is not in the list as CONNECT nor LISTEN
Expected Results: TCP/IP port 22273 (or service wnn6) have one or
more "LISTEN" state.
FreeWnn newest packages are FreeWnn-1.1.1-a018.tar.bz2 at
Since current version is FreeWnn-1.1.1-a017, update might be required
Yep this was done for security reasons. A coming version of
Emacs should have unix domain socket support, so at that
point it should be easy to make tamago use that (that's
the reason tamago isn't in the distro currently). Until
then you'll have to disable or modify FreeWnn-1.1.1-unix.patch
in the source rpm and rebuild I'm afraid.
However it seems more recent version of FreeWnn have a
Unix Domain socket cli switch, so perhaps the patch is
no longer necessary. I'll try to update to a020 soon
and hopefully that will help - thanks! :-)
Beside Security, I believe there will be a chance of Wnn6 and FreeWnn
asking for same port number. Since FreeWnn have parameter switch to
change port number, I think we should have that to be part of script too.
Did you not had this problem in past? I mean port number batting?
Updating to pl20 which has -u, -4 and -6 options,
so inet can be re-enabled.
I trapped the modification of disabling INET domain socket :) And I
understood why it did.
But there are no documentation of this modification with the
distribution. Only source code patch tells what is modified.
It is better to add some document about this modification, I think.
Jens, Where can I find your new pl20 version of FreeWnn?
I could only find FreeWnn-1.1.1-a017 version on
And this version does not seems to have -u, -4 nor -6 option on jserver...
IMAI, I found that FreeWnn does not have jserver man-page written in
language other than Japanese, at least, on FreeWnn-1.1.1-a017 version,
they don't. Hence, I think first thing we should do is look for pl20
version of package, and add man-page written in, at least, English.
Then, Jens can add patch to the man-page.
Sorry for the long delay.
There were some build problems on AMD64 architecture
which delayed the update to pl20, but it has now been
in rawhide for over a month. :)
Anyway could you please try it and see if it makes things
better? Thank you. :)
jserver -4 seems to work ok now. Closing.
