Description Con Tassios 2005-09-28 01:26:48 EDT
Description of problem:

As of RHSA-2005:396-9 makedepend appears broken 

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

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4AS U1

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:

cat >x.c <<EOF
#include        <stdarg.h>

touch Makefile
makedepend x.c

Actual results:

makedepend: warning:  x.c, line 1: cannot find include file "stdarg.h"
        not in /usr/local/lib/gcc-include/stdarg.h
        not in /usr/include/stdarg.h
        not in /usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-redhat-linux/3.4.4/include/stdarg.h

Expected results:

makedepend should find stdarg.h in

Comment 1 Mike A. Harris 2005-09-28 01:54:37 EDT
This is caused due to gcc update.  Recompiling makedepend fixes the problem.
As a workaround, try using "gccmakedep" instead of makedepend.   Does this
workaround work for you?

Thanks in advance.

Setting status to "NEEDINFO_REPORTER"
Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2005-09-28 02:04:51 EDT
Just noticed you're using RHEL4 U1...  Try upgrading to U2.
Comment 3 Con Tassios 2005-09-28 02:12:51 EDT
Yes, gccmakedep works OK.

RHEL4 U2 appears to be in beta still, according to RHN.
Comment 4 Mike A. Harris 2005-09-28 18:55:11 EDT
Yes sorry..  I meant when U2 is released.  The problem should be fixed in

Setting status to NEXTRELEASE (RHEL4U2)
