Description Sysoltsev Slawa 2002-01-09 12:29:08 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.01; Windows NT 5.0)

Description of problem:
If we using Intel C/C++ compiler (icc), we got an error while building 
package 'ypserv-1.3.12' on ypxfrd.c:
"ypxfrd.c", line 81: error: declaration is incompatible with "volatile int 
children" (declared at line 22 of "ypserv.h")
  int children = 0;
looking into sources we see that variable 'children' was previously declared 
as 'volatile int' in "ypserv.h" and redeclared just as 'int' in "ypxfrd.c". It 
is OK for gcc (gcc just ignores first 'volatile' this way), but normally C 
compiler should emit error or at least warning.
I try to change second declaration from 'int' to 'volatile int' 
(file "ypxfrd.c", line 81) and package was built.

With this I create and attach patch for eliminate this error in order to 
increase Red Hat Linux portability.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
You are unable to reproduce the error now even if you have Intel C/C++ 
compiler, because Intel C/C++ compiler doesn't support __attribute__ ((unused)) 
on function parameters yet.

Actual Results:  Compile-time error.

Expected Results:  Succesfully built package.
