Re: Reflector on Solaris 2.3 -Reply

I compiled version 2.40b3 and 2.40b4 on solaris 2.3. I used the gcc
compiler with CFLAGS=-g -DDEBUG -DMULTI and LFLAGS=-lsocket -lnsl. I
also added the following to reflect.h:
#define bcopy(src,dest,len) (memmove((dest), (src), (len)))
#define bzero(dest,len) (memset((dest), (char)0, (len)))
#include <sys/sockio.h>

After this modification, it compiled and runs quite well. I had also
compiled version 2.40b1 and 2.40b2. Version 2.40b1 did a core dump
everytime I ran it. Version 2.40b2 did a core dump if I ran it with my
own config file instead of letting it use all the defaults.

Hope this helps. We enjoy having our reflector.
