Description Oliver Falk 2007-11-28 06:03:27 EST
From my build.log:
[oliver@gosa libwvstreams]$ cat .build-4.4-1.fc8.log |tail
utils/wvcrash.cc:96: warning: ignoring return value of 'ssize_t write(int, const
void*, size_t)', declared with attribute warn_unused_result
utils/wvcrash.cc: In function 'void wvcrash_add_signal(int)':
utils/wvcrash.cc:388: error: 'struct sigaction' has no member named 'sa_restorer'
make[1]: *** [utils/wvcrash.o] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/oliver/cvs/F-8/libwvstreams/wvstreams-4.4'
error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.99427 (%build)

RPM build errors:
    Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.99427 (%build)

From sigaction manpage:
  The sa_restorer element is obsolete and should not be used.  POSIX does not
  a sa_restorer element.
Comment 1 Oliver Falk 2007-11-28 09:04:58 EST
Since it's obsolete. It's safe to remove that line - I think. Patch:

Comment 2 Ondrej Vasik 2007-11-28 09:57:38 EST
Thanks for report and patch. Just found that ubuntu included similar patch(with
memset for act struct - which is actually better) in July and that the problem
is still not reported to upstream. I will send information to upstream. Built as
libwvstreams-4.4.1-2.fc9 , closing RAWHIDE.
Comment 3 Oliver Falk 2007-11-28 11:47:18 EST
Can you please include in f8 as well!?
Comment 4 Ondrej Vasik 2007-11-29 04:15:02 EST
No problem, will do update to 4.4.1 today with this patch included...
Comment 5 Fedora Update System 2007-12-03 06:48:42 EST
libwvstreams-4.4.1-1.fc8 has been pushed to the Fedora 8 stable repository.  If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
