patch to make build

Comment 2 Alex Lancaster 2008-08-01 09:31:29 UTC
I tried applying this and doing a scratch koji build:


It appears to compile on x86_64:


but oddly fails on i386:

Comment 3 Axel Thimm 2008-08-01 09:43:29 UTC
Looks like rpmCallbackSize_t and rpm_loff_t have different sizes on 32 bits.

how about this then

Comment 5 Axel Thimm 2008-08-01 16:01:04 UTC
Thanks Caolan, I queued in a rawhide build. I guess the patch will need some #if
protection guards for using on previous Fedoras, but most probably Panu has even
some work underway on the next upstream apt version.

Comment 6 Panu Matilainen 2008-09-20 10:19:50 UTC
Thanks for massaging it to build :) I indeed have upstream work underway, it's just been stalled for age and a half due to being busy with rpm itself. Apt is going to need quite a bit of massaging to keep it building + working across all the dozen different rpm versions and variants out of the box... One major issue is the embedded Lua - there's a nasty version clash between what's bundled in apt and what rpm 4.6 is build against, causing apt to blow up if built with Lua enabled currently.

Comment 7 Axel Thimm 2008-11-09 20:22:05 UTC
Should this be CLOSEd UPSTREAM?

Comment 8 Bug Zapper 2008-11-26 02:36:22 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.

More information and reason for this action is here:

Comment 9 Panu Matilainen 2008-12-23 09:15:51 UTC
Rawhide now has actually working apt again finally. Need to push it to F10 soonish too...
