Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-7147) Native code does not build on BSD/OSX
Date Thu, 17 Feb 2011 19:07:24 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-7147?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12995984#comment-12995984
] 

Erik Steffl commented on HADOOP-7147:
-------------------------------------

Proposed solution: just make a call to setnetgrent, don't make it a condition, i.e. execute
the if block (call to getnetgrent) unconditionally.

Rationale:

As far as I can tell in BSD there is no need to check the setnetgrent for errors, there doesn't
seem to be a way to check (based on what BSD man page says) and they don't do it: 

http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-bugs/2009-March/034497.html

I assume that it's the same way Linux API would work (if setnetgrent fails then getnetgrent
doesn't return any users) but it needs to be tested.

> HADOOP-6864 uses the setnetgrent function in a way which is not compatible with BSD APIs,
where the call returns void rather than int. This prevents the native libs from building on
OSX, for example.
