libwrap bug

Hello

I found libwrap was fixed in NetBSD source tree.

  http://www.netbsd.org/cgi-bin/query-pr-single.pl?number=15025

Is this affects OpenBSD's libwrap?

If it is true, it should be fixed in OpenBSD, too.

# I have no machine to run OpenBSD, I couldn't test myself at this time.
# And sendbug web interface seems to be disabled, so I can't send PR to
# bugs <at> , sorry!

Re: USB Mass Storage Adapter/Adaptor umass.c 'fixes'.

I shouldn't have dropped the ball on this one.
I was assuming that others would have perhaps had some comment on the changes and
similar experiences to relate and input affirming the usefulness of the bug fix patch
I posted for this, and without that I dropped the advocacy ball.

Here I am with OpenBSD 3.2 and the same IDE <-> USB 2.0 ME-320U2 enclosures and
the OpenBSD 3.2 kernel (umass.c) is still detecting them as SCSI protocol, not the
correct ATAPI protocol.

As far as I can tell these 'ME-320U2' models are the most common IDE 5.25" / 3.5"
to USB 2.0 adaptor units on the market still from having seen them advertised in
numerous online retailers and in various computer stores.

I have bought several of them from different suppliers and they all seem to want to work
not as SCSI devices.

It'd be good if this or a similar patch could get into 3.3 and maybe 3.2 -stable
since it does resolve an issue that wholly prevents this type of mass storage device from
being used as an installation source (cd / hd) or target (hd) medium without building
a custom kernel and distribution set with the below change included.

I had the failures documented in a bug report PR too, though I can't for the moment recall
the number... 1740, 1739, 1742, somewhere in there I think -- and the web interface to the PR
system seems to be down so I can't check.

Re: USB Mass Storage Adapter/Adaptor umass.c 'fixes'.

In my tree, I have a total replacement for the current umass with stuff
that comes from netbsd.  (I think it should fix this problem you're
having.)  There's a few issues to be resolved, but you'll see a patch soon
for testing.

IBM Microdrive on USB not recognized


I'm using OpenBSD3.2-STABLE with a generic kernel, an OnSpec "One for All
Flash Media Drive (Console) B29911" (USB) and an IBM microdrive. The firmware 
is recognizing the drive, but only the controllers are showing up in dmesg 
(at end of post). The Intel D845GEBG2 motherboard is based on the 845E 
chipset.

usbdevs -v shows the following:

Controller /dev/usb0:
addr 1: self powered, config 1, UHCI root hub(0x0000), vendor 0x0000(0x0000),
rev 1.00
 port 1 powered
 port 2 powered
Controller /dev/usb1:
addr 1: self powered, config 1, UHCI root hub(0x0000), vendor 0x0000(0x0000),
rev 1.00
 port 1 powered
 port 2 powered
Controller /dev/usb2:
addr 1: self powered, config 1, UHCI root hub(0x0000), vendor 0x0000(0x0000),
rev 1.00
 port 1 powered
 port 2 enabled

Are there known problems with this device? Is there a USB interface that works 
with IBM microdrives? The microdrive has a CF+ interface but draws a lot of 
power (250-260ma during write).

This dmesg is from a boot with the microdrive plugged in:

Yes, thank you, I don't have one.  The diffs a little funny there, I'd
urge some caution before trusting it with important data.

PHP

I'm not sure if this is the apropriate list to ask php-related
questions, but here it goes:

I recently upgraded to 3.2 (actualy, I made a fresh install).
After adding the php-core package (among several php mods) and tuned up
httpd.conf to support php, everything was just fine until I noticed the
exec() family functions were not working, at all.

safe_mod is off on php.ini and there are no .htaccess files in use.

The PHP code worked fine with the obsd 3.1 php package, so it just can't
be the troube starter.
Altought I can see some warnings, in the error_log file, regarding to
undeclared variables (those "D" and "m" from the date/time functions),
no line refers to exec() or passthru() errors.

Thanks is advance,

Paulo Sopa

apache is chroot()ed in 3.2 in up, and there is nothing to exec() inside the
chroot. see httpd(8), FAQ (Nick will happily follow up and tell you where
exactly), and list archives.

yes, this is a nice way to say "do your damn homework"

Hey

Im looking for a way to tel my OpenBSD 3.1 to use a extern LDAP data base  for
the user data base.
Is this possible ??????

This has been asked before ...

2 possible solutions
* Authentication of user accounts on OpenBSD using LDAP via RADIUS
(http://www.webdaemons.org/~jamesp/openbsd_ldap.shtml)
* login_ldap by Peter Werner (http://www.ifost.org.au/~peterw/)
(a nsswitch implementation is still lacking)

Cheers,

Dries
