Description Kent Fredric (IRC: kent\n) (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-01-29 12:09:22 UTC
Due to some increased strictures, there needs to be explicit including of various files. The original debian bug shows more detail. 

Have created adapted patch and ebuild vs 2.0.3 

Reproducible: Always

Comment 3 Erik 2009-03-30 08:01:34 UTC
Just wondering why the patch adds sometimes stdio.h and sometimes cstdio. I thought that it should always be cstdio in cpp-files?
Comment 4 Ryan Hill (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-04-01 04:51:10 UTC
when using the .h versions, their functions are considered to be in the global namespace and don't need to be explicitly prefixed with std::.  it sometimes doesn't matter and sometimes does.
