ifconfig: can't resolve symbol: '_h_errno'???

Post by Arto J Santa » Mon, 13 May 1996 04:00:00

        I'm in trouble... I can't get ifconfig or route to wrok, thay
just tell me that they can't resolve symbol: '_h_errno'.

        Any ideas on what to do? Finding solution is really hard since I
can't use pppd and slattach anymore... Are they linked to some libraries
I need to update? What could be the reason? Error is clearly in files,
but I copied them from other computer, where they work fine, and they
still refused to work on mine. Help!

1. can't resolve symbol '_h_errno'

I recently upgraded my kernel to 2.0.0, as well as teh assorted packages
required to get it to run. (gcc2.7.2, libc-5.2.18, binutils-,
ld.so-1.7.14, sysvinit-2.62, util-linux-2.5)

I also upgraded sendmail to 8.7.5.

After the upgrade, whenever I sent mail I got the error message
 can't resolve symbol '_h_errno'

Oddly, I didn't have the problem if I sent mail as root.

"No problem," I said. "I'll just use my old binary." Which I did.

Then I decided that I needed a mail reader. So I downloaded the source
for slrn and slang, compiled everything, and ran it.

Once again I was faced with the message:
 can't resolve symbol '_h_errno'

Oddly, the program runs if I'm root or use sudo.

gdb reports the following:
Starting program: /usr/src/slrn/src/objs/./slrn
/usr/src/slrn/src/objs/./slrn: can't resolve symbol '_h_errno'

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
0x400025c0 in Blank_Hash ()
(gdb) where
#0  0x400025c0 in Blank_Hash ()
#1  0x400058a4 in Blank_Hash ()
#2  0x40003afc in Blank_Hash ()
#3  0x400019cf in Blank_Hash ()
#4  0x1 in ?? ()

Any ideas?
