Waiting for the fix to this issue:


Comment 2 Manuel Bejarano 2012-07-07 10:46:59 UTC
Ok, I tried to compile before posting the bug report and found the same issue. It's related with the MIN macro being not properly included in some source files, see https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups#!topic/libnfc-devel/K0cwIdPuqJg

However, the latest code in the SVN compiles but none of the examples seems to work, all of them throw segmentation faults when executed.

Anyway, I will wait until for the 1.6.0 release.

Thanks François!

The libnfc-1.7.0-0.4.rc7 landed in rawhide. I will build it for f18 / f19, but probably not for f17 as it is near EOL.

I am moving this bug to f18. Please leave a comment in case the f17 update is important for you.

I've tested the update and evething is working fine. I'm running Fedora 18 so having this version in F17 is not an issue for me.
