Description Jan Pazdziora 2020-08-03 11:48:12 UTC
Description of problem:

After upgrade to Fedora 32, bip stopped accepting logins.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have working setup of bip + hexchat on Fedora 31 and upgrade to Fedora 32.
2. Start the bip service and start hexchat which connects to it.

Actual results:

bip[37689]: 03-08-2020 13:31:26 ERROR: [irc.freenode.net] Invalid credentials (user: adelton:)

Expected results:

No invalid credentials, things working as in Fedora 31.

Additional info:

Checking the code which says

src/irc.c:              mylog(LOG_ERROR, "[%s] Invalid credentials (user: %s)",

the trailing colon after the username was suspicious.

I then looked around in koji and found build


which says in changelog

* Thu Apr 23 2020 Tom Hughes <tom> - 0.9.0-0.7.20181225gitc9cc64f
- Fix patch to correctly terminate strings

and the 0001-Fix-stringop-truncation-error-thanks-DJ-Delorie.patch is different.

I've installed that version and now things work fine.

So perhaps all that is needed is to push that build via bodhi to Fedora 32 updates?

Comment 1 Jan Pazdziora 2020-08-24 09:36:02 UTC
Hello, any chance of creating errata in Bodhi for the build so that the fix gets to Fedora 32?

oh, sorry, I didn't see this report, for some reason. Sure.
