Description Juraj Lutter freebsd_committer 2013-03-21 22:10:00 UTC
cflowd is unable to create semaphore with error:

Mar 21 02:23:11 ns2 cflowd[39539]: [E] semget(ftok("/usr/local/etc/cflowd.conf",0),2,S_IRWXU|S_IRWXG|S_IRWXO) failed to get semaphore set: Permission denied {CflowdPacketQueue.cc:125}

How-To-Repeat: compile cflowd and run.

won't fix.

I scheduled the port for deletion on 15 August 2014.
The port requires dozens of C++ patches to build on clang or modern C++.

After 10 years, there's never been a release; it's still in beta.
The original maintainer gave it up because he couldn't verify operation without netflow-speaking routers.

To save this port, a real maintainer with access to those type of routers needs to patch this software to work on clang and gcc 4.7+, and also provide stage support.

Go ahead, I don't need it anymore :-)
