CUPS and LIBC defect?
« on: September 06, 2020, 03:35:39 am »
I have been struggling to upgrade CUPS v.2.1.3 to v.2.2.12 but kept getting rpm chmod errors.  I wanted to stick with an RPM install and avoid manually installing it.

I eventually came across a 10 year old post describing an issue with libc and how EAs are handled when using 386 HPFS.  Since I'm using 386 HPFS, I rebooted with the HPFS.IFS driver and then CUPS installed without any errors.

Is this a known issue with LIBC and 386 HPFS EAs that's going to remain unresolved?

There's http://trac.netlabs.org/libc/ticket/230 and http://trac.netlabs.org/libc/ticket/231.
Since Dmitriy seems to have some patches for these issues and Bitwise has taken over maintaining libc, perhaps pinging the tickets or such would help getting them fixed?

Thank you Dave.

I wasn't able to create a new account on Trac or use their guest account.   I'll try again next week.

Hopefully, AN reads this board and spots this thread. While 386 HPFS isn't currently a supported configuration for them, it will be in 5.1 if they provide upgrades from 4.52.

Yes, Netlabs often has issues with creating an account. You can ask Adrian directly or perhaps better is to file an issue at https://github.com/bitwiseworks/libc/issues referencing the Netlabs issues  as well as your case.
