Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 149528
unmatched data types
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:00 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
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):
Steps to Reproduce:
A typical mistake done by C programmers.
Can you check if this has been fixed in 1.6.0 already?
Not fixed in 1.6.0.
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

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.
