curl+NSS doesn't work in non-blocking mode
Last modified: 2013-07-02 19:24:09 EDT
Description of problem:
curl with NSS as the SSL engine doesn't work with Second Life. The only
information is a crypto authentication error. It works fine with curl + OpenSSL.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Build Second Life dependencies (openjpeg and xmlrpc-epi) from
2. Build Second Life
3. secondlife --channel "Second Life Open Source [Fedora]"
You'll get an auth failure amongst some very verbose output. See this for the
Log in to the game world.
It was a one-line patch. The NSS engine in curl was failing to set the SSL
availability flag on the socket when nonblocking sockets. curl was reading and
writing to some unknown place but it wasn't the NSS socket.
A srpm with a patch can be found at
This appears to fix it. Please merge, as Second Life is unusable without it.
Update for this is filed for F8 and pending.
curl-7.17.1-1.fc8 has been pushed to the Fedora 8 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
