Description Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-07-14 09:11:29 UTC
There are a few changes in glibc-2.10 that might make your software fail to build with it, please refer to my blog post [1] if you're not sure what the problem is. Also make sure to fix it rather than sidestepping the issue [2] and [3].

And no I don't usually provide emerge --info with these bugs because they are caused by glibc-2.10!

Thanks, Diego

fixes compile with glibc-2.10.1

this is a quick and easy patch for kdbg. Basically it addresses the issue of things like this:

const char *p = ...;
char *s = strchr(p, x); /* drops the const! */
Comment 3 Evan Teran 2009-08-02 02:19:05 UTC
I forgot to mention, this patch is for kdb-2.1.1. appears to apply cleanly against 2.1.0 as well.
