Re: xorp update request


because it was not possible to compile the current version of XORP at netbsd, I asked the XORP developer for help.

After some weeks, now you can compile the current git version, but it does not run stable. The developer told me the following:

"I fixed some more crashes, but xorp still fails to start because it fails some mcast system calls. I have no idea why those fail, so someone with some bsd experience may need to add some debugging to the kernel to figure out why the call fails."

Because I have no experience in kernel coding, I can't help him in any way. So I will give up the try to update the XORP package in pkgsrc.

Subject: Re: xorp update request

 is there any plan to update the pkgsrc xorp version to a newer one?

There is no plan that I am aware of, but it doesn't really work that

If you want to send a patch, I'll have a look at it (post freeze).
