Created attachment 82004 [details, diff]

patch to allow compiling under gcc 4.1
Comment 2 Ciaran McCreesh 2006-03-13 00:59:08 UTC
Did this get sent upstream already?
Comment 3 Bret Towe 2006-03-13 12:24:22 UTC
no upstream already had fixes this is in part taken from svn
svn and .9.14 deverge a fair amount from what little i saw
when creating this patch
Comment 4 Ciaran McCreesh 2006-03-13 12:42:09 UTC
Ok, we'll let upstream handle this.
Comment 5 Bret Towe 2006-03-13 13:16:13 UTC
thats all fine and dandy if they intend to release a new version soon
but what about ppl using gcc 4.1 and such now?
Comment 6 Ciaran McCreesh 2006-03-13 13:24:15 UTC
4.1's in package.mask, right?
Comment 7 Bret Towe 2006-03-13 13:47:43 UTC
yes it is i dont see why that matters
as its still in portage masked or not
Comment 8 Ciaran McCreesh 2006-03-13 13:52:45 UTC
Eh, it's hard masked, so you're not supposed to be using it. If you must use hard masked gcc versions, grab one of the fluxbox-svn ebuilds that're floating around. Otherwise, it's a fairly safe bet that there'll be a new fluxbox out long before 4.1+ gets unmasked.
Comment 9 Mark Loeser (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-03-13 14:42:08 UTC
Please apply the patch.  4.1 will be coming out of p.mask in the next week or so.  Just because it is hard masked is also not a good reason to not apply a patch, especially when someone gives it to you.
Comment 10 Ciaran McCreesh 2006-03-13 14:48:17 UTC
Better to persuade upstream to stick out a new release...

0.9.15 is in the tree and should work. If it doesn't, I'll cry.
