xinetd: socket bind: Invalid argument (errno = 22) when using USERID on ipv6
Last modified: 2013-02-01 10:29:42 EST
Description of problem:
xinetd failed with "socket bind: Invalid argument (errno = 22)" on doing ident
lookup, when the service is bind to ipv6 and USERID is used.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
ident lookup failed.
successful ident lookup on actual connection
from message log (ipv6-addr removed):
xinetd: socket bind: Invalid argument (errno = 22)
xinetd: START: ftp-external pid=13976 from=$ipv6address
actual service config:
disable = no
id = ftp-external
bind = $ipv6address
socket_type = stream
per_source = 2
flags = IPv6
wait = no
user = root
server = /usr/sbin/vsftpd
log_on_failure += HOST USERID
log_on_success += PID HOST USERID DURATION EXIT
same config with ipv4 is doing the ident lookups.
I've reproduced it locally and I have an experimental patch - wrong
sizeof(address) was passed to bind() call.

Bumb, any news on this?

This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 8. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '8'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 8's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 8 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Update was released long ago, dunno why Bodhi did not close this.
