x86_64 typedef fix none

Description Göran Uddeborg 2005-12-13 20:48:37 UTC
Description of problem:
Playing a MIDI file with SDL_mixer sounds awful.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Find a MIDI file.  (E.g., install nethack-vultures. :-)
2.playmus /usr/games/vultureseye/music/nethack.mid
Actual results:
Very distorted sound

Additional info:
This happens only with the x86_64 build.  Installing the same version of
SDL_mixer (and its dependencies) from the i386 build of FE sounds fine!

Timidity, x86_64 build, also sounds fine.

This one has bitten me in prboom as well.  It's also a problem on FC-5 in
version SDL_mixer-1.2.6-6.fc5.x86_64.

Comment 2 Brian Pepple 2006-04-20 23:33:09 UTC
I'm not sure how I'm going to be able to fix this one, since I don't have an
x86_64 machine to reproduce this.  So, most likely a fix will need to come from

Comment 3 Wart 2006-04-21 00:05:04 UTC
I filed a bug report upstream:

x86_64 typedef fix

I found a simple fix.  There is a bad 32-64 bit typedef in one of the timidity
wrapper header files.  I haven't tested this on i386, but it definitely fixes
the problem on x86_64.

Comment 5 Brian Pepple 2006-04-23 16:04:00 UTC
Thanks for the patch.  I tested it on my i386 machines the last couple of day
and didn't have any problems.  New packages should be available with the next
