[icecast-dev] IceCast 1.3.11: Segmentation Violation in Linux

Hello all,

When I try to run IceCast 1.3.11, it starts up okay, but crashes with
Segmentation Violation as soon as a client tries to connect to it.  I am
suspecting that there is a race condition, because when I try to strace
icecast, it works fine.  I am a novice level coder, so I dont know how
else I can help you. :-)  This is a problem I had with 1.3.10, but I
downloaded 1.3.11 to see if you all fixed it first.  My current work
around is to "strace -o /dev/null ./icecast"  

Linux poseidon 2.2.15 #1 SMP Wed Mar 21 16:48:40 CST 2001 i686 unknown
libc version is 5.4.46

Also, in order for icecast to even compile on my system, I had to modify
ice_resolv.c.  Apparently, youre expecting an extra parameter in
gethostbyname_r and gethostbyaddr_r.  Diffs follow:

<       if (gethostbyname_r (hostname, res, buffer, buflen, error) >= 0)

>       if (gethostbyname_r (hostname, res, buffer, buflen, &res, error)
>= 0)
<       if ((out = gethostbyaddr_r (host, hostlen, AF_INET, he, buffer,
error) >= 0))
>       if ((out = gethostbyaddr_r (host, hostlen, AF_INET, he, buffer,
&he, error) >= 0))

If I recall correctly, the linux man pages for gethostbyname were so
useless I had to use Solaris man pages!  Luckily, the call
specifications seem to be the same, because it built and sorta works.

Thanks for the help all, and keep up the good work - I'm loving IceCast
