Description jehamby 1999-01-01 20:04:43 EST
When compiling ALSA-driver (see URL for ALSA home page), I
got numerous errors about missing bytesex.h.  It's not in
glibc-devel-2.0.108-0.981221, so I ended up copying it from
glibc-2.0.7-29 from RedHat 5.2  For your reference,
bytesex.h is a really tiny header file which looks like this
on i386:

/* i386 is little-endian.  */


Perhaps this is a bug in ALSA, but since this file existed
in earlier versions of glibc, you should include it if for
no other reason than backwards compatibility, right?

Use /usr/include/endian.h instead. Backward compatibiliy
for a one-line include file like this is not worth the effort.
