getaddrinfo() issue

Samba daamon (smbd) doesn't work because of broken getaddrinfo(). The function return an error if a hint AI_GETADDRINFO is passed. I've made investigation and realized that AI_MASK in netdb.h is incorrect.

Please look at: and

In my opinion AI_MASK should be defined as follow:

Do you have a link to the offending line in smbd?

First of all it should be AI_ADDRCONFIG instead of AI_GETADDRINFO.

V, search in samba sources for AI_ADDRCONFIG. I can't remember the correct place.

One place it can be found is in source3/libsmb/namequery.c, but there are more.

getaddrinfo() in the Haiku source already checks for the presence of AI_ADDRCONFIG, so perhaps adding AI_ADDRCONFIG to the AI_MASK definition is enough for the mentioned samba issue.

BTW, this getaddrinfo spec suggests a few more flags: AI_NUMERICSERV, AI_V4MAPPED and AI_ALL

Nice - just thinking that some optional packages might be broken now without a recompile?

Just for completeness: our libbind comes straight from the latest ISC version. But since I manually updated the headers, I must have missed the changes made to netdb.h - I also completely missed this ticket, sorry!
