Description Helmut Jarausch 2020-07-30 09:21:35 UTC
class LibRaw_abstract_datastream
doesn't have the 'substream' member any more.
This breaks media-libs/freeimage, e.g.
Comment 1 Michelangelo Scopelliti 2020-07-30 09:39:21 UTC
Same problem here
Comment 2 Jeroen Roovers (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2020-07-30 13:01:52 UTC
Breaks how? Configure time, compile time, run time?

Same error as upgrade to libRaw.

Patch removing "substream" from Source/FreeImage/PluginRAW.cpp

Attached patch removes "substream" handling and makes freeimage compile against media-libs/libraw-0.20.0.

BTW, I think that gentoo is not well served by setting bug subject headers to a short accusation of the OP. It has been pretty clear from the outset that this is a compile error.
Comment 6 Peter Green 2020-08-26 05:02:12 UTC
FYI upstream applied a patch similar to the one posted by Bernd Feige, but with some additional code-style changes some time ago.

(note: I have been looking into the same bug in Debian and came across this bug during my searches, I am not a Gentoo user)
Comment 7 Red 2020-10-04 16:56:04 UTC
I have the same problem with media-libs/freeimage-3.18.0-r1 and the patch from Bernd Feige fixes it.
Comment 8 jorge 2020-10-06 22:26:00 UTC
media-libs/freeimage-3.18.0-r1 fails to emerge ever since media-libs/libraw-0.20.0

Here's the patch from upstream. Maintainer, can we get this applied?

Also, there seem to be tests for this package but Portage is incapable of running them. They seem to depend on `make dist` being run and can be compiled from the TestAPI directory, but seem to be somewhat broken and I couldn't get them to work.
Comment 10 Larry Pyeatt 2020-11-26 02:36:40 UTC
Verified that the patch works for media-libs/freeimage-3.18.0-r2 with media-libs/libraw-0.20.2
Comment 11 Larry Pyeatt 2020-12-28 19:36:16 UTC
Tried to upgrade my other machine today, and the patch is not in the tree yet.  I'm putting in a pull request.
