Description Christoph Brill (egore) (RESIGNED) 2009-08-11 18:47:33 UTC
I tried installing speech-dispatcher and it failed because of incompatible definition of getline. I fixed it by removing the offending lines from the code. IIRC this is gcc 4.4 related (as I'm not sure I'm not adding it to the tracker bug).

Reproducible: Always

The patch that removes the incompatible function declarations.
Comment 2 William Hubbs gentoo-dev 2009-08-18 16:46:50 UTC
I have worked another bug very similar to this, and it actually appears
to be glibc related.  But, I need to see your 'emerge --info' to confirm

Thanks much.

Comment 4 William Hubbs gentoo-dev 2009-08-18 20:46:04 UTC
Ok, this is an issue with glibc 2.10.

I am running stable glibc and speech-dispatcher builds fine.  I have
forwarded your patch upstream to see if they can suggest a better way to
fix it since if I apply the patch it generates compiler warnings against
stable glibc.
Comment 5 Viktor S 2009-08-31 22:29:31 UTC
Seems to me like a really bad idea to remove the call completely. Just rename the function instead to something like sd_getline?
Comment 6 Samuli Suominen gentoo-dev 2009-09-04 08:54:53 UTC
Comment 7 William Hubbs gentoo-dev 2009-09-04 13:53:38 UTC
Re-opening this bug for the following reasons:

- I was waiting for upstream to respond regarding whether or not they had
a better idea for a patch.
- the current patch causes compiler warnings if you are running glibc
 - Also, I haven't addressed comment #5 yet.

Comment 8 William Hubbs gentoo-dev 2009-09-04 15:06:29 UTC
Reopening bug.
Comment 9 William Hubbs gentoo-dev 2009-09-05 16:53:24 UTC
The issue  is that the prototypes of getline removed by the patch are
needed to keep gcc from complaining if the user is using <glibc-2.10.

I need to find a way to test in the code for this and keep the
prototypes only in that situation.
Comment 10 Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-09-05 17:09:36 UTC
Adding a -D_GNU_SOURCE to the build is not enough?
Comment 11 William Hubbs gentoo-dev 2009-09-05 17:36:37 UTC

what I need to fix this issue is a patch for speech-dispatcher which
will skip over the included prototype for getline if the
user is using < glibc-2.10.  Can you suggest a way to detect this situation?

Thanks much,

How about.. ?
Comment 13 William Hubbs gentoo-dev 2009-09-05 18:06:33 UTC
Diego and Ssuominen,

you gave me an idea for a patch to try.  I want to test here with a
patch that puts the prototypes in #ifndef _GNU_SOURCE ... #endif, since
getline is visible in glibc-2.10 if that is not defined, but earlier glibc
if it is defined.
Comment 14 Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-09-05 18:51:20 UTC
No, really.

If the package was using getline *before* it was POSIX, it should be requesting GNU extensions…
Comment 15 William Hubbs gentoo-dev 2009-09-05 20:08:07 UTC
Looking over the package again,

part of the build requests GNU extentions, but part of it doesn't.

So, if I put -D_GNU_SOURCE in modules/ and remove the
prototypes of getline() from  modules/main.c
and modules/module_utils.h as suggested in the original patch, would that
be the way to fix this?

Comment 16 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2009-09-06 15:56:49 UTC
you could do it that way, or `append-cppflags -D_GNU_SOURCE`.  updating requires rebuilding autotools, so if you dont have to already, best to avoid it.
Comment 17 William Hubbs gentoo-dev 2009-09-06 19:37:11 UTC

I just committed an update based on the suggestion in comment #16.

Can someone who is running glibc 2.10 check to be sure this builds now?

If it does, feel free to close this bug.

* Cannot find $EPATCH_SOURCE!  Value for $EPATCH_SOURCE is:
 *   /home/ssuominen/gentoo-x86/app-accessibility/speech-dispatcher/files/speech-dispatcher-0.6.7-getline-ss.patch
 *   ( speech-dispatcher-0.6.7-getline-ss.patch )             
Comment 19 William Hubbs gentoo-dev 2009-09-06 20:34:59 UTC

the extra call to epatch has been removed, try again.

Forget about this one.
Comment 22 William Hubbs gentoo-dev 2009-09-07 19:36:24 UTC

I just committed a fix which removes the compiler warnings about getline() on a glibc 2.9 system.  Can someone try to emerge speech-dispatcher again on a glibc 2.10 system and see if it builds successfully?  If it does, feel free to close this bug.

The one in portage works, closing.
