Description Wart 2006-04-02 16:58:22 UTC
Description of problem:
tclhttpd hangs after starting and doesn't respond to any requests.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
tclhttpd-3.5.1-10.fc5

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install tclhttpd (fails, see bug #187682)
2. service tclhttpd start
3. point your web browser to http://localhost:8015
  
Actual results:
The browser stalls while waiting for a response


Expected results:
The tclhttpd start page appears

Additional info:

tclhttpd uses 'fork' to fork into the background after opening up the server
socket.  FC5 started building Tcl with threads.  Unfortunately, fork does not
play well with a threaded Tcl.

Comment 1 Wart 2006-04-02 20:35:11 UTC
New build available that disables [fork] for threaded builds of Tcl.
