Subject Re: Patches for 0.8.8 to 0.8.11 (fwd) {cosmetic}
Date Tue, 29 Aug 1995 19:05:50 GMT
There are more problems to be uncovered here. A default Solaris install
leaves you needing to get both uname -n & domainname output to get a fully
qualified hostname. Same results with UnixWare. NetBSD and BSDI give you a
fully qualified hostname from uname -n. SVR4. Feh.

Also, we should have some changes for SVR4 from UnixWare soon. I have a
report that accept() fails with errno=22 (protocol error) here after a
clean build of apache 0.8.9. I will evaluate here for Linux & UnixWare
what happens for 0.8.12(x). I assume fixes only for any release from here
to 1.0 (not enhancements).
