Description Vallimar 2006-11-29 16:34:53 UTC
Description of problem:

Several interface macros were removed from the kernel headers, which glibc
requires when compiling. The fact that they are now gone from the kernel causes
compilation issues.

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

kernel >= 2.6.19, glibc >= 2.5.90

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. make headers_check in kernel 2.6.19 source
2. install exported 2.6.19 headers
3. try to compile glibc

Actual results:

Errors on missing defines/macros.

Expected results:

Glibc should compile to completion and generate a new binary rpm.

Additional info:

I'm not sure what version of kernel headers is currently being used in
fedora-devel or if this is fixed in the fedora kernel includes, I just wanted to
give a heads-up that using a vanilla 2.6.19 kernel exported header-set, you
won't be able to compile glibc without some help.

Comment 2 Jakub Jelinek 2006-12-06 17:54:31 UTC
The patch is wrong, you can't include <linux/if_addr.h> without any checks,
as that header didn't exist before.  Some macros aren't needed.
glibc-2.5.90-11 has a different fix.
