Description Adam Goode 2016-08-10 19:00:29 UTC
There is a new active upstream for nss-mdns:

This is by the same new upstream maintainer as avahi.

I filed a bug there to get the ports patches upstream:

Feedback please!
Comment 2 Greg V 2020-06-24 14:29:48 UTC
The new upstream now has the ports patches (and some of my new fixes).

Thanks, I'll give it a shot.

I end up with following error, after installing the updated port[1] on 12.1-RELEASE:

    ld-elf.so.1: /usr/local/lib/nss_mdns_minimal.so.1: Undefined symbol "_nss_mdns_gethostbyname2_r"

Following are the contents of nsswitch.conf:

    hosts: files mdns_minimal [NOTFOUND=return] dns mdns

Do you have any suggestions, or advice, or if the diff is wrong, could you submit the updated diff ?

Comment 5 Ashish SHUKLA freebsd_committer 2020-06-24 17:31:42 UTC
Nevermind, I see you have a pull request open. I've subscribed to it[1], and will provide feedback, and update the port once it's accepted upstream.

I have not tried _minimal before, but my PR reintroduces the v6/v4 only versions, and there was that error in them, which I have fixed. Just tested, _minimal works for me now.
