[erlang-questions] erl_global_register/3 fails on NetBSD 4.0 - socket configuration?
Sat Aug 2 22:07:51 CEST 2008
I just registered to this list, so hello everyone.
I'm using erl_interface to write C code that I can use in Erlang. The code can be found here:
This happens with R11 and R12B-3 (which is erl_interface-3.5.7). This is on NetBSD.
An Erlang shell is started with "erl -sname xyz" on the host "nirvana".
After the shell has started, I run the C code. A connection to the erlang node is established (which succeeds), then the c node is published (which succeeds) and finally I want to register the C process to globals with erl_global_register/3 (which fails).
However, this last step fails and I have not been able to figure out why.
There is one curiousity. If you look at the code, a message loop ist started. Within this message loop I immediately receive the message
which suspiciously looks like a confirmation for registration. So, I think there may be something wrong with the socket settings (see socket setup function) which makes the erl_global_register/3 function miss the response from epmd?
What are the settings the socket should have? Anything specific? Do you see any other reason why erl_global_register fails?
Many thanks in advance!!
