Re: inetd tests failing

I guess looking at the test output again, it looks like inetd isn't
reading the config file (inetd_ratelimit.conf) properly. Notice the
lines that say "FREE", meaning it deleted those services. I think
what's going on is you have the current version of inetd installed on
your machine, which is what the test cases run, but are running the
tests for the next version (the one my senior project group
implemented). The config file used uses the new config syntax my team
implemented, so current inetd gets confused by it. You'll have to go
to the usr.sbin/inetd source directory and do "make install", which
will replace the program that's installed (and runs at startup on your
NetBSD machine) with the newer version. The ATF tests are intended to
test the current system, instead of the source code, unfortunately, so
that's why the program has to be installed (and you can see that I'm
calling posix_spawn with program argument "inetd" (as in the one
that's on the PATH of the system).

Looks like you already know more about libblocklist than me 😆.
