Description Red Hat Bugzilla 2001-07-30 22:00:08 EDT
rpm 4.0.3 from CVS (as of 6:00 pm CDT 07/30/2001) fails to compile on
Solaris with
the Sun Forte development environment, version 6.1.

The problem is that several functions in rpm-4.0.3/lib/hdrinline.h have
void return types,
but actually try return a value.  gcc might say "whatever", but most other
compilers will
rightfully object.

A patch is attached, though JBJ may find a better fix than just deleting
the three
inlined versions of those functions.

Comment 2 Red Hat Bugzilla 2001-07-30 23:00:12 EDT
This appears to be a problem with
	return (void)
that can be easily remedied with s/return //. Will do ...
Comment 3 Red Hat Bugzilla 2001-08-04 14:12:27 EDT
FIxed in my next checkin, should be in rpm-4.0.3-0.87.
