Comment 1 Santhosh Raju 2020-09-22 18:44:07 UTC
Thanks for the bug report. I do not have immediate access to FreeBSD 12.2-BETA2, but it seems to be working as expected in 12.1. Will look into it and get back.
Comment 2 Santhosh Raju 2020-09-23 01:25:25 UTC
(In reply to greg.bal4 from comment #0) Does this problem happen even when running as non-root?
Comment 3 Greg Balfour 2020-09-23 02:55:23 UTC
It also happens when using the startup script which runs the program as user ircd. root@nextgen:/tmp # /usr/local/etc/rc.d/ircd-hybrid start Starting ircd_hybrid. Bus error /usr/local/etc/rc.d/ircd-hybrid: WARNING: failed to start ircd_hybrid When running it via the startup script it occasionally produces a log file entry. [2020-09-22T21:49:37-0500] Couldn't initialize the libltdl run time dynamic link library. Exiting.
Comment 4 Santhosh Raju 2020-10-07 10:07:12 UTC
(In reply to Greg Balfour from comment #3) Apologies for the delayed reply, I was not able to replicate this issue. Based on the error message you have shared, can you reinstall libltdl ( https://www.freshports.org/devel/libltdl ) and see if ircd-hybrid is still failing to work?
Comment 5 Santhosh Raju 2020-10-07 10:12:58 UTC
(In reply to Santhosh Raju from comment #4) I am also not sure, but libtool ( https://www.freshports.org/devel/libtool ) might also be a suspect here here.
Comment 6 Greg Balfour 2020-10-08 16:49:02 UTC
I reinstalled libltdl and libtool and the problem persists. I have now tried with 12.2-BETA3 and the latest quarterly packages with the same result. To reduce variables I did a clean install of 12.2-BETA3, then installed only the irc/ircd-hybrid package. It pulled in libltdl but not libtool. But I installed that too. root@nextgen:~ # /usr/local/etc/rc.d/ircd-hybrid start Starting ircd_hybrid. Bus error /usr/local/etc/rc.d/ircd-hybrid: WARNING: failed to start ircd_hybrid root@nextgen:~ # uname -a FreeBSD nextgen.example.com 12.2-BETA3 FreeBSD 12.2-BETA3 r366133 GENERIC amd64 root@nextgen:~ # pkg info ca_root_nss-3.57 Root certificate bundle from the Mozilla Project indexinfo-0.3.1 Utility to regenerate the GNU info page index ircd-hybrid-8.2.33 Fast irc daemon with a number of new features libltdl-2.4.6 System independent dlopen wrapper libtool-2.4.6_1 Generic shared library support script m4-1.4.18_1,1 GNU M4 pkg-1.15.6 Package manager Note that this is under VMware. No clue if that makes a difference.
Comment 7 Santhosh Raju 2020-10-08 17:03:43 UTC
(In reply to Greg Balfour from comment #6) Thank you for going through and testing out package. I know it is not an easy task. I did my testing in bhyve and virtualbox, I do not have access to a VMWare instance. Would it be possible for you to try out ircd-hybrid in 12.1-RELEASE under VMWare and see if this issue persists? From what I understand you are pulling in the binary package directly using pkg(1) correct? If that is the case, can you manually try building the port from the ports tree in 12.2-BETA3 and see if the problem persists? The reason I ask that is because of this > root@nextgen:/tmp # file /usr/local/bin/ircd /usr/local/bin/ircd: ELF 64-bit LSB executable, x86-64, version 1 (FreeBSD), dynamically linked, interpreter /libexec/ld-elf.so.1, for FreeBSD 12.1, FreeBSD-style, stripped I know sometimes binaries may break between minor releases and building the package natively might resolve the issue. I am happy to provide any assistance needed for helping build the package.
Comment 8 Greg Balfour 2020-10-09 17:07:16 UTC
Rebuilding ircd-hybrid from the ports tree (just ircd-hybrid, using packages for everything else) does resolve the issue. root@nextgen:/usr/ports/irc/ircd-hybrid # /usr/local/etc/rc.d/ircd-hybrid start Starting ircd_hybrid. ircd: version hybrid-8.2.33(20200907_9618) ircd: pid 15268 ircd: running in background mode from /usr/local I assume when 12.2-RELEASE is out there will be packages built against it so I can install everything using pkg(8).
