Description Flags
fix for an incorrect access to time structures (mostly Alpha) none

Description michal 1999-12-27 21:08:37 UTC
Source rpm for gnome-libs-1.0.54  __still__ includes the following
juicy fragment in 'ltconfig':

check_shared_deplibs_method='file_magic ELF 32-bit LSB shared object'

which is obviously wrong (this was reported quite a while ago
to Gnome development).  Moreover spec file __still__ forgets to
include manual pages gnome-config.1, gnome.1 and gnome-mime.5.

On the top of it a long standing mistake in types which is causing
"unaligned access" reports on Alpha is still there.  An often repeated
patch for that is attached.

Comment 2 Havoc Pennington 2000-02-03 20:43:59 UTC
Fixed the man pages and applied the time(NULL) patch.
No idea on the ltconfig thing, don't know how to fix it, and
it seems to work on Alpha here. In any case it's a libtool bug,
ltconfig is just copied from the system libtool install.
