Description Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-02-04 14:04:51 UTC

you're getting this template-based bug because the package in the subject hit a "header present but cannot be compiled" during ./configure execution. If you check my blog post in the URL, this is going to be a problem when autoconf-2.64 will be used so you should pay attention and consider fixing the issue (or let upstream know about it at least).

Thank you for your consideration. Share and enjoy!

this is a bug in media-sound/cdparanoia.  it uses "struct cdrom_drive" in cdda_paranoia.h but does not do a dummy struct define or include cdda_interface.h for it.

so we end up with:
$ echo '#include <cdda_paranoia.h>' | gcc -x c -c - -o /dev/null
In file included from <stdin>:1:
/usr/include/cdda_paranoia.h:44: error: expected ‘)’ before ‘*’ token
/usr/include/cdda_paranoia.h:47: error: expected ‘=’, ‘,’, ‘;’, ‘asm’ or ‘__attribute__’ before ‘*’ token
/usr/include/cdda_paranoia.h:48: error: expected ‘=’, ‘,’, ‘;’, ‘asm’ or ‘__attribute__’ before ‘*’ token

We used to do this for previous releases but somehow the patch was dropped when it was bumped to latest.
