Description enrico.scholz 1999-03-01 11:41:09 UTC
Compilation at a glibc2.1/kernel 2.2 system fails at 2

1. netconf/ipx.cc _needs_ an explicit "#include
<sys/socket.h>" (else you get a lot of missing symbols).
Currently this file will be included only if there is no
GLIBC. I guess this is done because the old libc5 had
problems to include some network headers together.

2. the firewall module has no chance to compile at a
glibc2.1 system. The FAQ of this library says:

"3.16.   Why has <netinet/ip_fw.h>

{AJ} The corresponding Linux kernel data structures and
constants are totally different in Linux 2.0 and Linux 2.2.
This situation has to be taken care in user programs using
the firewall structures and therefore those programs (ipfw
is AFAIK the only one) should deal with this problem

So I think the best solution is to remove the firewall
directory from the DIRS-entry in modules/Makefile.

I know there is a new linuxconf 1.13 out there but I don't
know if it has still the errors above.
