Description Jens Rutschmann 2006-01-23 18:44:50 UTC
The cisco-vpnclient-3des-4.0.5.ebuild does not compile on new kernels.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. emerge cisco-vpnclient

Apply the same changes as done for version 4.6* in patch file "" to the 4.0.5 source.

The 4.0.5 ebuild should be kept, since newer versions (4.6, 4.7) do not work properly on some systems. For example on my machine ;-)

Sorry that this took so long, I had to dig up an older distfile.

 Patch for GCC 3.4 and linux kernel >=2.6.14

This is a patch to get the cisco client 4.0.5 compiling with gcc 3.4 on newer kernels (>=2.6.14). It is based on the original version (that means without the 2.6.14 kernel patch).
I hope it works on other machines than mine, too.
Comment 3 Chris Gianelloni (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-03-30 18:46:34 UTC
So your newer patch is required instead?

> So your newer patch is required instead?

A few weeks after I opened this bug I changed my GCC from version 3.3* to 3.4.5. Since then I couldn't compile the client any more. (I read they changed something in the compiler ABI ?)
So I looked a bit around in the patches for newer versions of the client as well as in the compiler messages. Then I made my new patch, which allowed me to compile with both GCC 3.4 and kernel >= 2.6.14.

The old patch (as now done in cisco-vpnclient-3des-4.0.5-r1.ebuild) still works if you have a kernel >= 2.6.14 and GCC 3.3.

The new patch is for kernel >= 2.6.14 and GCC >= 3.4.

I think the ebuild should decide on compile time which patch(es) must be applied, so all combinations of kernels and GCC can be used.

Thanks for your help on that old version !

Hrrrmn... are you sure that the new patch won't work on GCC 3.3?

Compile logs for cisco-vpnclient-3des-4.0.5-r1 with both GCC 3.3.5 and GCC 3.4.5

I did some testing with the current 4.0.5-r1 ebuild on kernel 2.6.16 and it did compile well on GCC 3.3.5 (it was a emerge --buildpkgonly). But it did not compile on GCC 3.4.5.

The attached zip file contains emerge logs and emerge --info output for both compiler versions.

The patch I submitted before is for GCC 3.4.5.

I'm having problems getting vpnclient to compile.  I have a good instance of it for linux-2.6.18-gentoo-r3, but it refuses to go for linux-2.6.19-gentoo-r1.  I'll attach output from `emerge --info` as well following this posting:

Comment 9 Chris Gianelloni (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-12-12 12:43:16 UTC
Uhh... 4.8.0 doesn't have much to do with this bug.  There was a bug for 2.6.19, but I resolved that earlier today.
Comment 10 Chris Gianelloni (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-04-20 18:08:46 UTC
We had to remove all of the older VPN Client versions from the tree due to another bug, so this won't likely ever be "FIXED" as it were.  Marking this as WONTFIX.
