Subject [PATCH] deal with long hostnames -- Re: [BUG]: "httpd server exits if no fqdn name found and ServerName not hardwired" on Solaris 2.x (fwd)
Date Thu, 06 Mar 1997 08:18:43 GMT
After examining the man pages and header files under bsdi, linux, irix,
and solaris I decided to use MAXHOSTNAMELEN.  The included patch also
checks the return value of gethostname(). 

Mike I'm guessing the UMR is coming because whatever OS you're doing this
on is truncating the result and the buffer isn't \0 terminated.  This
patch should deal with it.
