Description Peter Alfredsen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-05-18 20:14:43 UTC
Tracker. Kittens will suffer if you post comments. Put bugs in the 'Depends on' field instead.
Comment 1 Peter Alfredsen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-05-24 12:41:00 UTC
*loki_val mutilates a kitten

General information:
gfile.cc: In function 'GString* grabPath(const char*)':
gfile.cc:352: error: invalid conversion from 'const char*' to 'char*'

That class of errors *is* triggered by changes in glibc-2.10, but gcc-4.4 is also needed to trigger it. So either gcc-4.4 or glibc-2.10 alone is not enough to trigger it, but both in combination will. We'll use this tracker for tracking them, not the gcc-4.4 tracker.

See for example bug 270430 which was reported by a gcc-4.3.3 user, but bug 271052 remained under the surface.
Comment 2 Oschtan 2009-06-03 04:14:09 UTC
Ordinary error of most bugs is "invalid conversion from 'const char*' to 'char*'"...
Comment 3 Samuli Suominen gentoo-dev 2009-09-07 13:29:57 UTC
Closing. 5 bugs linked here open, 3 of them in p.mask, 1 soon to be in there and 1 non critical package with ready solution. So, in reality there's no bugs left to track.

And thanks to everyone for their work on this.
