Description enrico.scholz 1999-04-05 22:49:03 UTC
I have contacted the developer of the expect module but have
not got any response yet. So I'm trying this way and sending
you a copy of the mail:


------------------------------------

Hi,

compilation of expect fails at a glibc2.1 system with
/dev/ptmx support. There the tests for HAVE_PTMX and
HAVE_OPENPTY will both succeed and "slave_name" declared
twice in pty_termios.c:

-----------------------------------------
gcc -c  -I. -I.
-I/usr/src/redhat/BUILD/tcltk-8.0.4/tcl8.0.4/generic
-I/usr/src/redhat/BUILD/tcltk-8.0.4/tk8.0.4/generic
-I/usr/X11R6/include -DEXP_VERSION=\"5.28.1\"
-DSCRIPTDIR=\"/usr/lib/expect5.28\"
-DEXECSCRIPTDIR=\"/usr/lib/expect5.28\" -DTCL_DEBUGGER -O2
-mpentium -fno-strength-reduce -march=pentium -g
-DDFLT_STTY="\"sane\""  pty_termios.c
pty_termios.c:173: conflicting types for `slave_name'
pty_termios.c:134: previous declaration of `slave_name'
pty_termios.c: In function `exp_getptymaster':
pty_termios.c:372: incompatible types in assignment
make: *** [pty_termios.o] Error 1
-----------------------------------------

I forced expect_cf.h generated by configure to have the values
	...
	/* # undef HAVE_OPENPTY */
	...
	#define HAVE_PTMX 1

which passes "make check".

Fixed in tcltk-8.0.4-29 (which generates expect-5.28-29).

Thanks for the report.
