Patches for R7B-0
Tue Oct 31 17:14:18 CET 2000
We still haven't decided exactly how to handle patches but feel that
we have kept you waiting long enough. So we have put together some
patches for changes made since R7B.
The numbers beginning with "OTP-" are internal tracking numbers that
we use that are not very useful to you. But keeping them makes it
more easy for us to identify the changes we have made patches for.
You use something like
% cd otp_src_R7B-0/
% zcat patch-R7B-0-001-win-vxworks.diff.gz | patch -p1
to patch your source. Let me know if there are any problems adding the
Various changes made after the Unix release.
OTP-3704 It is now possible to register/unregister for notification
of changes stored (permanently, i.e. on disk) in snmp_local_db.
OTP-3725 Added direct access (read) functions to the symbolic store
for faster access (accessible through the snmp module).
OTP-3715 -nohup must work in Windows; erlsrv depends on it.
OTP-3714 When R6 nodes and unpatched R7 nodes are in the same
network, global:register_name hangs. This is fixed
with a patch to R7. Patched R7 nodes can communicate with
unpatched R7 nodes
OTP-3716 disk_log handles huge terms better when reading log files
using chunk/2. Bugs in chunk/2 and chunk_step/3 as well
as in wrap_log_reader have been fixed.
OTP-3718 Kernel example uds_dist should not be read-only
OTP-3717 Corrected the configuration script for building with SSL.
You can give the configure script the options
--with-ssl use SSL (default)
--with-ssl=PATH specify location of openSSL/ssleay
include and lib
--without-ssl don't use SSL
Created from a patch contributed by Geoff Wong.
OTP-3719 The configure script did not define HAVE_STRDUP, hence
the file erl_connect.c could not compile. The file
erl_connect.c is now changed to not trust HAVE_STRDUP
to be defined in config.h. Thanks to Mikael Pettersson
and Geoff Wong.
