Description Stefan Berger 2011-02-04 15:31:42 UTC
Description of problem:

The package nss-util-devel is missing at least one include file:

/usr/include/nss3/seccomon.h:51:21: fatal error: prtypes.h: No such file or directory

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

#rpm -q --whatprovides /usr/include/nss3/seccomon.h 

Comment 1 Elio Maldonado Batiz 2011-02-04 16:51:19 UTC
prtypes.h is part is provided by nspr-devel
# rpm -ql nspr-devel | grep prtypes.h

which is required by nss-util-devel
#rpm -q --whatrequires nspr-devel

Comment 2 Stefan Berger 2011-02-04 16:59:15 UTC
Let me be more specific:

In file included from /usr/include/nss3/blapit.h:46:0,
                 from /usr/include/nss3/blapi.h:45,
                 from test.c:52:
/usr/include/nss3/seccomon.h:51:21: fatal error: prtypes.h: No such file or directory

seccommon.h shows this here:

#ifndef _SECCOMMON_H_
#define _SECCOMMON_H_

#include "utilrename.h"
#include "prtypes.h"


I believe it expects prtypes.h to be found in nss3, no?

Comment 3 Elio Maldonado Batiz 2011-02-04 17:24:14 UTC
No, it actually expects the file to be found in nspr4, as in

Comment 4 Stefan Berger 2011-02-04 17:28:52 UTC
In a next step I added -I/usr/include/nspr4 to gcc for inclusion of the needed path leads to:

/usr/include/nss3/blapi.h:47:21: fatal error: alghmac.h: No such file or directory

I cannot 'find | grep alghmac' in /usr/include...

Once the #include of this file is commented, I can compile. It would be great if the development packages could be fixed.

Comment 5 Elio Maldonado Batiz 2011-02-04 18:00:07 UTC
/usr/include/nss3/blapi.h is a private header of the freebl library in nss-soften-devel and nss-util and its nss-util-devel do not depend on anything in the rest of nss or nss-softokn. They are the lower level common utilities required both nss and nss-softoken. nss depends on nss-softokn and nss-util
The freebl headers are as a rule private to the crypto module, with very few limited exceptional cases.

Comment 6 Stefan Berger 2011-02-04 18:19:05 UTC
Assuming I wanted to link against -lfreebl and use the function RNG_RNGInit(). Where am I going to get its prototype from other than including nss3/blapi.h ?

Comment 7 Elio Maldonado Batiz 2011-02-04 18:40:16 UTC
nss-softoken-freebl-devel (subpackage of nss-softokn) provides you that header. 
#rpm -ql nss-softokn-freebl-devel

Comment 8 Stefan Berger 2011-02-04 18:52:03 UTC
I know that. See above in comment 4 the error that I am getting when including blapi.h. alghmac.h is missing.

Comment 9 Elio Maldonado Batiz 2011-02-04 19:19:07 UTC
I see alghmac.h listed as one of freebl's private exports in mozilla/security/nss/lib/freebl/maninifest.mn
	alghmac.h \
It does show up in mozilla/dist/nss/private. 
It does not appear listed in the nss-softokn.spec (or nss.spec) so it doesn't copied to /usr/include/nss3 along with other private headers. This may be fixable. 

Could you do me a favor? Manually copy alghmac.h into /usr/include/nss3 and try to compile your project. Before I add it to the list let me see what else it pulls in. I would hate to trigger a chain reaction of headers being brought in.

Comment 10 Elio Maldonado Batiz 2011-02-04 21:10:05 UTC
alghmac.h doesn't include anything else and that's promising
Let me know if these scratch builds of nss-softokn and nss
work for you.

Comment 11 Stefan Berger 2011-02-04 21:38:01 UTC


from these builds did the trick for me.

Comment 12 Fedora Update System 2011-02-04 22:28:53 UTC
nss-softokn-3.12.9-2.fc14 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 14.

Comment 13 Stefan Berger 2011-02-05 00:09:03 UTC
Unless done anyway, please submit


rather than (only)


as an update.

Comment 14 Elio Maldonado Batiz 2011-02-05 00:22:21 UTC
nss-softokn-freebl and nss-softokn-freebl-devel can't be submitted by themselves. They are mere sub-packages of the nss-softokn package so it's the latter that gets submitted.
