I just had a look when you mentioned this -- seems on my laptop
(working glusterfsd) I was using gcc 3.4.6 with vanilla specs. On the
web server (broken glusterfsd) it was using hardened specs (with stack
protection and position independent executable options). This is on
I've just recompiled it using vanilla specs on the web server,
having noticed another more subtle data truncation bug with the client. Having
tried connecting with another client on the network, I'm successfully able to
mount the volumes from the webserver without issues.
I'll do some further investigations, but it seems the hardened toolchain
in Gentoo would be a prime culprit here.
