Comment 2 Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-06-05 12:56:52 UTC
Not GCC 4.4, it's glibc 2.10, see
Comment 3 Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-06-05 12:57:35 UTC
And the patch is wrong, it should probably change the type of the variable where the return value is stored instead of casting it away.
Comment 4 Timothy Knoll 2009-06-05 13:04:10 UTC
either way works.  I chose this method solely because it should work with previous gcc/glib versions
Comment 5 Timothy Knoll 2009-06-05 13:28:57 UTC
Just because it is not the way you would have done it, does not mean its wrong.  Does it compile -- yes.  Therefore its good enough for me.

I said it was the gcc because the gcc porting guide ( ) mentions it.  Whether its the gcc or glibc, I don't know.  All I know is that it needs to fixed.
Comment 6 Timothy Knoll 2009-06-05 14:20:17 UTC
fixed in
so a simple upgrade would work
Comment 7 Doug Goldstein gentoo-dev 2009-08-03 00:52:27 UTC
glibc 2.10.x and higher users should be using at least mythtv-0.21_p20877 or newer
