Subject: Ports open but not response from dovecot daemon (hppa)
Date: Sun, 11 Jan 2004 17:02:58 +0000
Package: dovecot
Version: 0.99.10.4-2
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

When using the packaged version Dovecot starts up but when connecting to (for example)
pop3 you get

jools@inspiron:~$ telnet hp9000 pop3
Trying 192.168.1.10...
Connected to hp9000.workshop.
Escape character is '^]'.

and then nothing. I compiled my own from source and this works fine, so its some option built 
into the package which is broken on HPPA. When i built from source i included PAM and SSL 
support. Please tell me where to go from here to debug this further. No useful information was 
given in any logs. Also i have noticed that if i strace on my version of "pop3-login" it runs 
though and finishes. but on the one shipped with the package it seems to be stuck in a loop. 
forever repeating

open("/var/run/dovecot/ssl-parameters.dat", O_RDONLY|O_LARGEFILE) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or 
directory)
rt_sigprocmask(SIG_BLOCK, [CHLD], [], 8) = 0
rt_sigaction(SIGCHLD, NULL, {SIG_DFL}, 8) = 0
rt_sigprocmask(SIG_SETMASK, [], NULL, 8) = 0
nanosleep({1, 0}, {1, 0})

over and over again

i checked and there is indeed no file of this name. but only a ssl-parameters.dat.tmp file

I am happy to test out any new packages with more debug information for you.

What does the protocols= line in your /etc/dovecot.conf say?

Are you sure you didn't have something else already listening to port 110?
(netstat -ln | grep 110 can tell you this.)

Do you have dovecot-common installed?  Is it also 0.99.10.4.2?

Does renaming /var/run/dovecot/ssl-parameters.dat.tmp to
/var/run/dovecot/ssl-parameters.dat and then restarting dovecot help?

I doubt that there are any huge difference between my packaged version and
the upstream versions.  What flags did you give to configure when you
compiled your version?

Mine is built with gnutls.  That could be significant.  can you try
building dovecot with gnutls instead of openssl and see if it breaks?

There should be another dovecot named process that creates this
ssl-parameters.dat file. So sounds like you have some OpenSSL problem.
Try stracing the other dovecot process and see what it does? Maybe it's
blocking on trying to read too much data from /dev/random or something?

Ivo, could this be a similiar problem to #224106?

Actually it seems to be more of a problem with the way gnutls is
handled.  If you want certificates, gnutls will want the file.  The
submitter reports the existence of a file
"/var/run/dovecot/ssl-parameters.dat.tmp".  gnutls couldn't care less
what you feed it, but gives an error if the file isn't there.

There seems to be a difference in ssl-init-gnutls.c and
ssl-init-openssl.c; the _ssl_generate_parameters from
ssl-init-openssl.c is empty.

Please try to get more information on what dovecot is doing, using gdb
or so.  Personally I don't think gnutls is to blame.


Jaldhar: the bugreport you refer to is an FTBFS bug, what does it have
to do with this?

That file is there.  /var/run/dovecot/ssl-parameters.dat is the one which
is missing.  I'll take a look at what dovecot is doing with it.

I'll do that but fwiw, i believe dovecot has worked on hppa before and
it definitely works on other platforms with gnutls7 so I suspect this is a
regression or some weird hppa incompatability.

I was wondering if the automake problem mentioned there resulted in a
slightly different configuration for hppa which may have triggered this
bug.

Btw, I see from Debian Planet that you have a new version of gnutls out.
Has it been built for hppa yet?  Would it be worth having the bug
submitter try that instead of gnutls7?

Exactly.  In ssl-init.c, there is a rename() which is supposed to move
it from .dat.tmp to .dat.

Could be.  Jools, what does 'dpkg -l libgnutls7' say?

It's waiting in NEW.  If you can make him get the sources from my site
and compile it, sure, why not.

Jools, if you want to try this, get the source for gnutls10 from:
	http://www.lychnis.net/files/debian/unstable/source/

Yeah, dovecot should also be recompiled using the new libgnutls10-dev.
Sorry about that.  Jaldhar, if you want, libgnutls10 is now in incoming.

Has there been any progress?  FWIW I can also reproduce this on
sparc, but not on i386.

The last time I tried, I managed to crash Jools' server.  So I am a little
apprehensive about trying again without further research.  Jools, if it is
ok with you I'd like to try again next week.

It's quite ok. the machine is only currently running a few services for 
myself. I've also upgraded the kernel and it seems to be running more stable 
now. The hppa kernels are under constant development.

Please feel free to carry on using the machine.

Since then I've posted to the debian-hppa and parisc-linux lists and a kernel 
developer offered to help debug it. I'm just waiting for him to give me his 
public gpg key so i can mail him a password.

he mentioned in a previous mail:

How's progress on debugging this going?  It's been quiet for almost a month.  
(Info to the bug report please.)

I am closing this bug because
- dovecot now uses openssl
- gnutls11 has an hppa fix which should close this

If anybody thinks it's still an issue, please reopen.
