Linking popt to glib simply ain't gonna happen.

Linking popt causes some build errors in other modules/packages durling configure.in

NEEDINFO_ENG has been deprecated in favor of NEEDINFO or ASSIGNED. Changing
status to ASSIGNED for ENG review.
Comment 5 Jeff Johnson 2006-04-25 01:09:08 EDT
Using glib in popt creates unresolvable dependency loops if dependencies are added
to track the usage of glib, or tricky support problems for popt output changes when glib cannot
be dlopen'ed, so the patch as written cannot be applied.

Meanwhile, if you rewrite using iconv(3) (which is all that glib2 is using), then the patch is probably

Comment 8 fujiwara 2007-02-20 07:35:02 EST
Could you integrate the patch into HEAD?
Comment 9 Matthew Miller 2007-04-06 12:51:38 EDT
Fedora Core 5 and Fedora Core 6 are, as we're sure you've noticed, no longer
test releases. We're cleaning up the bug database and making sure important bug
reports filed against these test releases don't get lost. It would be helpful if
you could test this issue with a released version of Fedora or with the latest
development / test release. Thanks for your help and for your patience.

[This is a bulk message for all open FC5/FC6 test release bugs. I'm adding
myself to the CC list for each bug, so I'll see any comments you make after this
and do my best to make sure every issue gets proper attention.]

This problem does not depends on the distributers and not fixed in popt HEAD yet.
Could you integrate the fix? This bug is one year ago.
Comment 11 Jeff Johnson 2007-04-09 09:08:27 EDT
Apologies, I did not see the rewritten patch using iconv.
That looks acceptable. I'll try to look this week.
Comment 12 Matthew Miller 2007-04-09 09:12:41 EDT
Moving this to devel.
Comment 13 Jeff Johnson 2007-04-20 21:31:47 EDT
Added to rpm cvs, will be in popt-1.10.9-0.4 when built. Thanks for the patience and the patch.

Comment 14 Robert Scheck 2007-08-10 06:06:11 EDT
Well...this issue already should be fixed in the popt package I added for my 
review request. It would be nice, if somebody could try the popt package I 
added to my review request and close this bug report if everything works with 
this package. Thanks.
Comment 15 Robert Scheck 2007-08-23 19:28:42 EDT
Your patch is at least incooperated into popt 1.12-3 which should reach Rawhide 
soon. I'll close this bug report now.

Patch for popt/configure.ac and popt/popthelp.c

Thanks for commiting the patch.

I noticed the CVS repository today.
It seems some of the codes are not commited yet so I'ld like to update the

Could you review the attachment?
The configure.ac works with 'autoheader' command.
Comment 17 Robert Scheck 2007-08-24 09:34:53 EDT
I forwarded your patch to upstream, got reviewed there and was applied some 
minutes ago into CVS.

Patch for isspace() cast in popt/popthelp.c

Thanks much for the quick integration.

Sorry, I'ld also like to integrate the cast part in the previous patch.

Could you review the attached patch?

On Solaris, the isspace() does not work correctly because the type of 'ch' and
'help' are signed char and they become minus values because multibyte chars are
8bit > 7bit so isspace() receives minus int.

     int isspace(int c);

The suggested fix is we convert the char to unsigned char and can convert to
plus int with the cast.
Then the isspace() works on Solaris.

Thanks much for your integrations.
