xchat 2.0.4 on x86_64 has 64-bit issues (patch)

This patch fixes some 64-bit bugs:
Although it's for 2.0.5, it applies okay to 2.0.4 aswell.
Great, thanks Peter! I'll add that to CVS so it gets into future
Is this patch integrated into 2.0.7 I assume?
Yes it's in 2.0.5+, but I thought it might be a good idea for the
AMD64 release, which still has 2.0.4 (according to my local mirror).
Ok, cool. I was just wondering if it was something I should add to
rawhide as well or not. Once our first alpha/beta of Fedora Core 2
goes out the door, I might update to 2.0.7 on Fedora and RHL 9 perhaps
if the test results too.
I noticed some 64bit problems on Alpha in xchat a long time ago, but
intended on debugging them myself and never got around to it. I'll
have to whip up an Alpha build as well, and give it a shot. I'll also
test on ppc64, s390x, and ia64.
This is fixed in Fedora development now by updating to xchat-2.0.7
a while back. I don't know how to update this package for
Fedora Core 1/AMD64 however as we haven't released an official
release for that, and the engineering effort is somewhat disjoint
from our standard internal procedures.
I've carbon copied the person who is doing most of the AMD64
volunteerwork, in hopes he can comment, and we can coordinate
to ensure this is fixed in the FC1/AMD64 release also.
Justin: Can you comment? Would an xchat-2.0.7 update for
Fedora Core 1 do the trick perhaps?
I will try to get 2.0.7 pushed as an update for the FC1 AMD64 release
today. Thanks guys
I have released a test update for FC1 of xchat 2.0.7, which
should seed the AMD64 packages also.
Thanks again guys.
