tclhttpd hangs during startup
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:29 EST
Description of problem:
tclhttpd hangs after starting and doesn't respond to any requests.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install tclhttpd (fails, see bug #187682)
2. service tclhttpd start
3. point your web browser to http://localhost:8015
The browser stalls while waiting for a response
The tclhttpd start page appears
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.
New build available that disables [fork] for threaded builds of Tcl.
