Description David Binderman 2005-02-23 14:59:36 EST
Description of problem:

I just tried to compile package diradmin-1.5.1-5 from 
Redhat Fedora Extras development tree.

The compiler said

charset.c(185): warning #967: conversion from "char" to "const
gchar={char} *";
sizes do not match

The source code is

                        tempstring = g_strdup(tempstring2);


You can't call g_strdup on a char, only a char *. Maybe 

        char *tempstring, *tempstring2;

was intended by the programmer ?

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

A typical mistake done by C programmers.
Comment 2 Matthias Saou 2005-04-07 15:38:54 EDT
Can you check if this has been fixed in 1.6.0 already?
Comment 3 Michael Schwendt 2005-04-07 17:22:32 EDT
Not fixed in 1.6.0.
Comment 4 Matthias Saou 2005-05-03 07:50:57 EDT
Thanks for the bug report.  At the moment, the Fedora developers don't have
time to work on this particular issue. The best way to make sure your problem
will get looked on is to report it to the authors of the program. Most 
upstream authors use a bug tracking system like bugzilla, and more people
who know the code will be looking at the bug report there.

The upstream bug tracking system to use is:

Please make sure the bug isn't already in the upstream bug tracker before
filing it.

Fair enough. I am willing to wait for a bugfix.

I tried this, but failed. All I got was an opportunity to subscribe
to a couple of mailing lists, which is slightly less than useful
for my purpose.

Same for me. The project isn't very active, unfortunately.
