Bug #47816 pcntl tests failing on NetBSD
Submitted: 2009-03-28 01:43 UTC Modified: 2009-03-28 19:08 UTC
From: Assigned: mbeccati
Status: Closed Package: PCNTL related
PHP Version: 5.3CVS-2009-03-28 (CVS) OS: NetBSD 4
Private report: No CVE-ID:

There are a few problems with the new pcntl extension on my NetBSD 4.0 system. The extension compiles fine, but a few tests fail.

First, it seems that NetBSD sigtimedwait / sigwaitinfo implementations return 0 on success and -1 on failure, rather then the signal number: see

A patch is available here:

I didn't commit myself as you might want a better (autoconf based?) fix.

Second, there are a couple of kernel bugs interfering with pcntl properly working: (Fixed in -current) (Under investigation)

Once those bugs have been fixed the extensions should be properly working on NetBSD.

Reproduce code:
pcntl_sigprocmask(SIG_BLOCK, array(SIGTERM));
posix_kill(posix_getpid(), SIGTERM);
var_dump(pcntl_sigwaitinfo(array(SIGTERM), $siginfo));

Expected result:
array(3) {

Actual result:
