Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 981833
nrattach.c does not actually attach netrom.
Last modified: 2015-04-21 15:22:20 EDT
Description of problem:
nrattach is disabled
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Attempt to use nrattach. It attaches the ip to the same netrom port over and over.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. edit /etc/ax25/nrports and add in
netrom KE6I-10 BERK 236 Berkeley
2. nrattach -i 10.0.0.1 netrom
Do this multiple times.
3.NET/ROM port netrom bound to device nr0
nr0 is repeated for each attempt.
nr0 should count up to nr1, nr2, nr3
This bit of code here '#ifdef notdef' -- breaks nrattach.c. Why was this put in? Basically without this I believe it should work correctly. I compiled another version and the problem went away.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 18 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 18. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '18'.
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 18's end of life.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be
able to fix it before Fedora 18 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, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior to Fedora 18's end of life.
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.
Fedora 18 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2014-01-14. Fedora 18 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.

Actually start interfaces with nrattach
This is still an issue in Fedora 20/21
Having trouble with this. I've applied the patch to get rid of the bad code, but I can't build it. I get a automake error when building in any release using mock.
configure.ac:10: error: required file './compile' not found
Mock Build Log: http://dp67.fedorapeople.org/logs/ax25-tools-build.log
Sorry, bad link,
Upstream already fixed it few years ago:
> Fix for a problem I introduced in 2005.
> Thanks to Bernard <f6bvp> for reporting this problem.
Please fix it in fedora.

Build fix patch.
(In reply to Randall "Randy" Berry from comment #4)
I built it OK for rawhide, but I also had to add this patch.

And finally for reference attaching patch I used for fixing @subj of this bug. It is probably same as patches added previously - I just defuzzified the upstream patch to apply cleanly.
Hi Randy, could you rebuild the package with the attached patches? If you don't have time, I will be able to do it for you, just let me know (I am in proven packager group), or I can also help you to co-maintain this package.

If you can please go ahead and rebuild it.. I can rebuild it locally using the patch but I'm doing something wrong and can't get it to build on the build system. I'm a bit rusty. I'll figure it out just have to research. Thanks.
