Subject: msgget IPC not implemented
Date: Thu, 14 Oct 1999 13:45:51 -0700
Package:  libc0.2-dev
Version:  2.1.2pre

Greetings.  Another whining complaint from a fellow
hurd enthusiast.

The fakeroot package (used by apt) makes use of some
IPC, specifically:

msgget(msg_key, IPC_CREAT|0600);

This fails (as do all other msgget calls) with
a perror return of:

"Fakeroot, while creating message channels:
Function not implemented".

Is this a real missing function, or do we need to
be doing more MIG-ish stuff to get fakeroot running?

Thanks,

-Brent

It is certainly the case that sysv-style ipc and shared memory are not
implemented on the hurd, and are not likely to be implemented any time soon.
We don't know of any particularly desireable things that sysv ipc provides
that can't be done another way (unix-domain sockets, pipes, etc, even
without getting into hurd-specific ways).

I don't know the debian magic required to refile these two reports
as "wishlist" items, but that's what should be done.

Please look at #184565.  SYSV IPC on Hurd has been needed to
implement.  I reassign it to hurd package as wishlist to follow
#184565.
