Description Alex Chernyakhovsky 2012-06-21 22:01:06 UTC
glibc fixed a bug in 2010 in which htons() would give a conversion warning when compiled with -Wconversion due to the implementation of the byte-swapping functions. Unfortunately, this fix was only for x86/x86_64 platforms. The fix has now been updated to include the generic byteswap functions.

Please apply this patch to the glibc in Fedora.
