Last modified: 2015-05-04 21:34:32 EDT
Description of problem:
Flex fails to build from source in Rawhide because one two of the checks in
its test-suite fails to build.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. $ fedora-cvs coredumper
2. $ cd coredumper/F-11
3. $ make scratch-build
Flex fails to build from source.
Flex should build successfully.
The generated C++ lexers refers to EOF, but Flex does not add a '#include <cstdio>', which it should. This causes a build failure with GCC 4.4.

Patch to fix build failure.
Thanks. It's in the CVS and scratch build was tested. I won't build it officially, since we are in devel freeze, unless I get explicit waiver.
As there are no F11 build of flex at all, you should perform a normal build and request a freeze break, please follow https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/ReleaseEngineering/FinalFreezePolicy.
After reviewing goals of mass rebuild, I think it would be advantageous for flex to be rebuilt too. Filed:
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.
