I just upgraded exim to 4.12-3 from 4.10-2 and exim started to misbehave
when run under Cygwin CVS (from 2003-02-20).
First, I noticed the following in exim's log file:
2003-02-21 11:06:10 cannot find smtp/tcp service when starting daemon
Under strace or gdb, the above problem did not occur. Instead, I got
2003-02-21 11:11:06 IPv4 socket creation failed: Operation not permitted
which is further on during the initialization of the daemon.
I tracked the first problem down to the following exim code:
if (default_smtp_port < 0)
struct servent *smtp_service;
if ((smtp_service = getservbyname("smtp", "tcp")) == NULL)
log_write(0, LOG_MAIN|LOG_PANIC_DIE, "cannot find smtp/tcp service "
"when starting daemon");
default_smtp_port = ntohs(smtp_service->s_port);
I wrote a small test program to drive getservbyname() and it works just
I really needed to send some email so I switch back to exim 4.10-2 and
exim works as before.
Sorry, this is as far as I have gotten with this one...
I will try 1.3.20-1, the latest snapshot, and debug some more. I hope
to report back soon with something more useful. Maybe this post should
have gone to cygwin@ or /dev/null instead... :,)
