I think it is and I don't care what's free or not. I'm looking at what you
get for your money and an Intel box for the same price (specially a used one
like you said) is head and shoulders above the current Longsoon.

I would like a MIPS box but I am not going to be held hostage to buy one and
neither are most people.

problem running named in non 0 rdomain

Hi,

I am having difficulty running named in a non-default rdomain, on the
following platform:

root <at> ns0 ~ # uname -a
OpenBSD ns0.whatever 5.0 GENERIC#36 sparc64

I have an interface in a rdomain '1':

root <at> ns0 ~ # ifconfig bge1 | head -1
bge1: flags=28843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST,NOINET6> rdomain 1
mtu 1500

and happy:

root <at> ns0 ~ # ping -c 1 -V 1 10.20.30.2
PING 10.20.30.2 (10.20.30.2): 56 data bytes
64 bytes from 10.20.30.2: icmp_seq=0 ttl=255 time=0.215 ms

However, when I try to start the named daemon in that rdomain with the
following command:

# route -T 1 exec /usr/sbin/named -4 -i /var/run/named-gn.pid -c
/etc/named-gn.conf

the daemon starts successfully, but cannot open a control port on the loopback
interface, and complains thus:

Jan  1 09:12:19 ns0 named[23519]: [child]: disallowed port 954

These words you keep on using... I don't think they mean what you think
they mean.

Noone is holding you at gunpoint until you are buying a Lemote device.

If you consider them too expensive for what you think they are worth,
it's fine. But don't tell people their prices are ``holding people in
hostage''. Thanks.

rrdtool in httpd chroot

Hi list,

 after upgrading to 5.0 (no fresh install), I've encountered somewhat of a
puzzle. I use syweb on my webserver and an rrdtool binary in the /bin directory
in the chroot. This used to work fine, but now the updated binary won't run in
the chroot.

This is what ldd tells me on the main system:
# ldd bin/rrdtool 
bin/rrdtool:
        Start    End      Type Open Ref GrpRef Name
        1c000000 3c004000 exe  1    0   0      bin/rrdtool
        05fc8000 25fe5000 rlib 0    1   0      /usr/local/lib/librrd.so.3.0
        04b36000 24b4e000 rlib 0    2   0      /usr/X11R6/lib/libfreetype.so.18.0
        04d7e000 24d85000 rlib 0    2   0      /usr/local/lib/libpng.so.12.0
        07317000 2731e000 rlib 0    2   0      /usr/lib/libz.so.4.1
        0f7a8000 2f7ac000 rlib 0    2   0      /usr/local/lib/libart_lgpl_2.so.5.20
        0d3d5000 2d3de000 rlib 0    3   0      /usr/lib/libm.so.7.0
        0703d000 2706b000 rlib 0    1   0      /usr/lib/libc.so.60.1
        025a4000 025a4000 rtld 0    1   0      /usr/libexec/ld.so

I've copied all those libraries to the appropriate places in the chroot, but
when I try to run rrdtool, I get
# chroot -u www /var/www/ /bin/rrdtool
/bin/rrdtool: can't load library 'libpng.so.8.0'

Note the different version number (i.e. a library that the binary is not even
linked to according to ldd). I get similar things for libfreetype and libm. The
same thing happens when run directly in the webserver.

Re: rrdtool in httpd chroot

As it turns out, the libraries were installed in a number of places (e.g. libpng
not only in /usr/local/lib but also in /usr/lib in the chroot). In one of those
places, there was still an old copy of librrd.so.3.0, which referenced the
libraries that I was seeing errors for. I cleaned everything up and now it
works.

Seems that my mistake was using the install_rrdtool.sh script to copy the
libraries when I set it up initially (and it put everything in /usr/lib instead
of mirroring the hierarchy that ldd reports) and then doing the update manually
(and mirroring the hierarchy, thus creating duplicates).

Sorry for the noise,

Lars

Need some suggestions abt application inside chroot

Hi All,

I need some suggestions/feedback about application on OpenBSD whether it should or should not be
installed inside chroot environment.
For example,apache webserver is installed in chroot environment by default.

Are there specific guidelines to check and verify whether the application should or should not be
installed in chroot environment?

Many thanks.

TCO, txpause, rxpause and other nice things on "em" adapters

Hello!

I'm running servers with "em" NICs.  People on list reported things
like  "hwfeatures=8037<CSUM_IPv4,CSUM_TCPv4,CSUM_UDPv4,VLAN_MTU,VLAN_HWTAGGING,WOL>",
I do not see such options in ifconfig output. neither man page on "em"
says anything about check sum offload.

"em" are advanced cards, do they already do all things out of a box?
do I have to make special tuning for TCO ?

ifconfig also shows "media: Ethernet autoselect (1000baseT
full-duplex,rxpause,txpause)", what is rxpause,txpause ?

cheers,
Ilya Shipitsin

As always FAQ is good start
http://www.openbsd.org/faq/faq10.html#httpdchroot , linked man pages
as well and then just try ;-)

That's ok because I'm the one who "keeps on using" them, not you. But I
meant what I wrote just so you know.

No but the factory is making sure only limited dealers can sell them. I
smell a rat.

Oh, so you are one of the people holding people hostage by limiting
distribution and you're just not admitting it?

Or you're just an argumentative sonofabitch and for some reason you believe
it's your responsibility to police the net for certain types of posts and
align yourself with those who gouge people on slave labor technology? After
all it costs them about 5 bucks to actually make it. Pardon me I am not
rushing to pay 250 dollars. That seems excessive as I have said.

Since you have advice for me, let me share some for you. Mind your own
fucking business. I really don't give a shit that you don't think a
restricted distribution network and price controls are fine. Most of the
rest of us don't agree.

Now go away..
