Re: Error to compile VSFTPD 2.0.7 on hpux11.11

Yes, it does that.

It seems something in the code gets
_INCLUDE_XOPEN_SOURCE_EXTENDED defined
(perhaps and ),
and that affects the declaration of "struct
msghdr" in , because of:

#if defined(_XOPEN_SOURCE_EXTENDED) && !defined(_KERNEL)

It looks to me like a bug, but I don't know
whom to blame. Apparently the vsftpd people
don't test their stuff on HP-UX.

Sometimes it's useful to _start_ by revealing
the actual problem which you are trying to
solve, rather than asking for help in
implementing some particular solution (or
non-solution) to that problem.

_Very_ seldom is there only "one" solution to
a computer software problem.

If your "jail" is in any way related to
"chroot()", then a forum search for terms
like:
ftp chroot
may find many discussions of how to configure
the existing FTP server to do what you want.
Otherwise, it might help to describe exactly
what your requirements are.

You might also report the vsftpd problem to
the vsftpd people, and see if anyone there
knows anything.

jaru,

Add the following line to the builddefs.h

#undef _XOPEN_SOURCE_EXTENDED

then run make.
