The 1.5.1 and 2.0b2 devkits on the web site do NOT have the accept() fix which can cause it to lockup on Solaris (and maybe IRIX). (The problem where lots of processes will quickly die won't be seen until the accept is fixed, since it'll lock up before they can start dying, but Chip's second patch fixes both problems.) Fortunantly, Idle only does fastcgi in perl for now, so the fixes being in FCGI 0.31 helps. The patches were reposted to the list on 6-18-97, by Sonya. That they still aren't in the official devkits after nearly 3 months is extremely disappointing. -Jonathan -- Jonathan Roy - firstname.lastname@example.org - Idle Communications, Inc.
