I'll be adding these patches shortly.  In the meantime, anyone who needs them can get them from here.

the ebuild, which patches the sources. Ok and one more hint, everything runs,
but one must start the ssh deamon. I don't if this ist the right thing to do
(from security perespective of view), but that was the only thing, which worked
for me, without any further modifications and actions.

Applying the two patches attached by Gergan Penkov, but using the current ebuild (nx-x11-1.4.0-r3) rather than the ebuild he supplied (which was an update to -r2), appears to compile correctly with gcc 3.4.3.

Comment 14 FieldySnuts 2005-01-09 09:22:12 UTC
I'm still having the problem with -r3 and gcc-3.4.1.

Should I try upgrading to gcc-3.4.3-r1 and try again?
Comment 15 Stuart Herbert (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-01-11 16:42:51 UTC
I can't advise you there.  I offer support for the current stable version of gcc.  I'm not in a position to offer support for non-stable versions, especially as gcc-3.3 and gcc-3.4 cannot co-exist on the same Gentoo installation AFAIK.

Best regards,

> especially as gcc-3.3 and gcc-3.4 cannot co-exist on the same Gentoo installation AFAIK

Why? Why do we have slotting?
Why is there a command gcc-config?

# gcc-config -l
[1] i686-pc-linux-gnu-3.3.4
[2] i686-pc-linux-gnu-3.4.3 *
[3] i686-pc-linux-gnu-3.4.3-hardened
[4] i686-pc-linux-gnu-3.4.3-hardenednopie
[5] i686-pc-linux-gnu-3.4.3-hardenednossp

I hope, that we're getting closer to this bug.

Comment 17 Stuart Herbert (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-01-13 13:56:07 UTC
The ABI for C++ software changed between gcc 3.3 and gcc 3.4.  I'm sorry, I just don't have a machine to dedicate to gcc 3.4 at the moment.

Best regards,
Comment 18 Joe Kowalski 2005-01-23 07:32:49 UTC
Actually, the ebuild for gcc-3.4 has portage install sys-libs/libstdc++-v3, which allows for gcc-3.3 compiled apps to run without abi problems.  There is NO problem with having a system that has both gcc-3.3 and 3.4 on it.

(nx-x11-1.4.0-nxcomp.patch) patch for nxcomp fixing gcc3 compile errors

(I think all attachments are obsoleted)

nxcomp had really poor ANSI compliance.

I actually removed the entire clear() function that the previous patches were
against, since standards-compliant STL std::vector provides a working
implementation.  (I don't know what the calls to destroy, etc are supposed to
resolve to, I don't see any functions by those names in STL.)

I also updated the header names to #include <iostream> without the .h and added
using namespace std.  Also, a lot of -W parameters were being passed to g++
that aren't valid for c++, so they've been eliminated.

I did ebuild clean unpack, applied this patch against the base, ebuild compile
install package, emerge -k and tested it.  I now can connect to the nxserver
for the first time ever.  (nxfree without nx-x11 causes problems during
connect, reported as timeout on the server side and "Parse error in remote
options string 'NX> '" on the client)  Something is wrong with the
dependencies, because the nxserver was installed previously by emerge --resume
--skipfirst even though nx-x11 hadn't been installed (should I file a new bug

The files compile under both versions of gcc I have, now with *no* warnings
(installed and tested under 3.4.3)

I don't know why the old header files names are being used.  Is this for
compatibility with non-gcc compilers?  Or for gcc2?  If the latter, then this
patch should only be applied to gcc v3 and up.	It is tested and working under
gcc 3.3 and 3.4 both.  This sort of thing should be done by configure, but... 
if someone points me to a package that is a really perfect example of the right
way to use autoconf and automake I'll endeavor to have the header filename
selected by configure.	caveat: I've never used autoconf/automake before.
Comment 20 Joe Kowalski 2005-04-29 12:47:12 UTC
This bug is fixed in the nx-comp-1.4.0-31 package.  net-misc/nx-x11 now properly compiles with gcc-3.4.  Reccomend closing this.
Comment 21 Stuart Herbert (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-05-23 12:14:16 UTC
Closing bug as per Joe's suggestion.
