Description geoffrey 2004-04-26 12:49:32 UTC
While emerging ntp-4.2.0-r2 it fails consistently with this error:

In file included from ../include/ntp_md5.h:6,
                 from md5c.c:28:
/usr/include/md5.h:37: error: syntax error before "caddr_t"
make[2]: *** [md5c.o] Error 1

This has happened on several different systems, both Intel and AMD, and on usermode kernel systems. It appears to be a problem in the source files.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. emerge net-misc/ntp-4.2.0-r2
2.Fails as shown above.
3.Try changing USE flags and try again, but same results.

Actual Results:  
Emerge fails as previously stated.

Expected Results:  
Update of ntp should succeed.

I have not tried unmerging ntp-4.1.2 before emergeing ntp-4.2.0-r2.

Can you please post the output of emerge info?

Comment 2 Chris White (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-04-30 12:17:44 UTC
related to a previous ntp bug:

Might help the devs in fixing the problem.  Looks like a missing header file.
Comment 3 Chris White (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-04-30 12:53:26 UTC
I'll have a patch and test ebuild up if this test proves successful.

Let me know if it works :)

`emerge info` ? what linux-headers are you using ?
Comment 8 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2004-05-13 18:00:15 UTC
get back to me
Comment 9 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2004-07-23 23:30:08 UTC
no info, never seen/heard this bug before on a Gentoo system

I'll help you out since I'm having the exact problem on one of my machines.

Comment 11 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2004-12-16 11:31:09 UTC
what package is providing /usr/include/md5.h ?
Comment 12 Paul Slinski 2004-12-16 11:38:48 UTC
How can I find out?
Comment 13 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2004-12-16 11:40:33 UTC
`find /var/db/pkg -name CONTENTS | xargs grep -l md5.h`
Comment 14 Paul Slinski 2004-12-16 11:46:43 UTC
There were quite a few hits so I modified the string. Seems that cyrus-sasl provides the /ust/include/md5.h

# othello pkg # find /var/db/pkg -name CONTENTS | xargs grep -l '/usr/include/md5.h'
