NetBSD chylonia.3miasto.net 1.5.4_ALPHA NetBSD 1.5.4_ALPHA (local) #1: Wed Feb 26 20:26:25 CET 2003
no idea why but talk just doesn't like to receive call when kernel doesn't have COMPAT_LINUX:
[Unable to connect with initiator : Address family not supported by protocol family (47)]
ntalkd works fine, receiving talk from other machine works (if other machine is
not NetBSD or has COMPAT_LINUX)
yes i know - it sounds like nonsense but it is true.
i can send my kernel configs for reference.
It's possible COMPAT_LINUX forces other thing that i have not compiled in.
try running talk with custom kernel without COMPAT_LINUX
i don't even know where to search.
