[rabbitmq-discuss] Why is the "select" always getting timed out in consumer?

I desperately need a help. I have been slogging last couple of nights, but
could not make it work !!!!!!

I have a program in which a seperate thread publishes a message, and a
consumer accepts it after ensuring the socket is readable (select), and
ensuring and there are no frames enqueued (amqp_frames_enqueued) or data in
buffer (amqp_data_in_buffer).

But though the log says, the message is indeed published to the queue, it
always times out.
There was a similar example posted on the same forum, which i followed, but
nothing works for me, and i always receive a timeout.

Please help !!!!

Here is my consumer code, till the point where it timedout.

void *con(void *arg) {
                        amqp_bytes_t queue;
                std::string message;
                printf("%s %s\n",__FUNCTION__,(char *) arg);

                Debug("%s() - Get an mq connection\n", __FUNCTION__);
                amqConnection *conn =  util.getAMQConnection ();
                if (conn == NULL) {
                        ErrLog("%s() - get connection failed\n",
                        pthread_exit(0) ;
                Debug("%s() - declare exchange %s\n", __FUNCTION__,
                int rc = conn->declareExchange(EXCHANGE, QUEUETYPE, 1);
                if (rc != 0) {
                        ErrLog("%s() - declare exchange %s %s failed\n",
                        pthread_exit(0) ;

                Debug("%s() - consume  %s\n", __FUNCTION__,ROUTINGKEY );
                amqp_connection_state_t *state;
                state = conn->getConnectionState( );
                if (state == NULL)
                        printf("Could not receive connection state

                if (!amqp_frames_enqueued(*state) &&
!amqp_data_in_buffer(*state)) {
                         int sock = amqp_get_sockfd(*state);
                         printf("socket: %d\n", sock);
                         int flags = fcntl(sock, F_GETFL, 0);
                         fcntl(sock, F_SETFL, flags | O_NONBLOCK);
                         int ret = 0;
                         do {
                                struct timeval timeout;
                                fd_set read_flags;
                                FD_SET(sock, &read_flags);
                                /* Wait upto a second. */

                                timeout.tv_sec = 5;
                                timeout.tv_usec = 0;
                                ret = select(sock+1, &read_flags, NULL,
NULL, &timeout);
                                if (ret == -1)
                                        printf("select: %s\n",
                                else if (ret == 0)
                                        printf("select timedout\n");

                                 if (FD_ISSET(sock, &read_flags)) {
                                        printf("Flag is set\n");
                                        message = conn->consume(QUEUENAME,
                                        if (0 == message.length()) {
