Hi all,

This post is informative only. Not a bug report.

There is a malfunction in the Fedora Core 2 distribution that prevents Phobos to work properly. The problem appears when we use the net suport (module std.socket). An example is the listener.d program provided with the library. If I try to execute it I get the following error:

Error: Unable to set socket blocking.

I Think the problem is related to the use of the glibc version 2.3.3 (the current version in the official site is 2.3.2.

I have a Slackware 9.1 in my machine and I could no reproduce the same error (Slack uses glibc 2.3.2).

I didn't try other distros.
