Hmmm. Built upstream master, and it doesn't have the problem. Not sure if there was a fix or if this shows a build/rpm problem.
Hmmm, part 2... works when I build from the tarballs in the source RPM. Does *not* work when I rebuild the source RPM and install.
Okay, so... good news and bad news. Commenting out patch #1 and leaving the bundled json in place cures this bug.
The patch to (system) jsoncpp from https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=753560 fixes this. Updating to github master *does not*. (Unfortunately, though, the patch also makes a build test fail. What a mess!)
No, wait -- updating to github master _does_ work. But, sadly, it is not ABI compatible (despite no soname bump). So.... that's kind of a mess.
In case it helps, I built a jsoncpp 0.7.0 snapshot RPM at http://mattdm.org/misc/fedora/jsoncpp-0.7.0-0.1.20140917gitdf26dae.src.rpm and a Copr at http://copr.fedoraproject.org/coprs/mattdm/minetest/
Hmmmm, so.... new jsoncpp 0.10.0 upstream https://github.com/open-source-parsers/jsoncpp/releases says "(Based on 1.6.0. Binary-compatible with the old 0.6.0-rc2 from sourceforge.)"
This message is a reminder that Fedora 20 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 20. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version'
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 20 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 20 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-06-23. Fedora 20 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
