Description repomaint-rhbz 2012-07-20 17:40:01 EDT
the RHEL6 libdvdread RPM is also affected by Bug #540155

+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #540155 +++

Description of problem: The function DVDFileStat requires a pointer to an allocated dvd_stat_t. However, dvd_stat_t is an opaque structure so it cannot be allocated. The function is then unusable.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 4.1.4-0.2.svn1183

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try compiling the following program:
#include <stdio.h>

#include <dvdread/dvd_reader.h>

main (void)
  dvd_reader_t *reader;

  reader = DVDOpen ("/dev/dvd");
  if (reader)
    dvd_stat_t statbuf;

    if (DVDFileStat (reader, 0, DVD_READ_MENU_VOBS, &statbuf) == 0)
      printf ("Size of VIDEO_TS.VOB: %lu", statbuf.size);

    DVDClose (reader);

  return 0;
Actual results:
foo.c: In function 'main':
foo.c:13: error: storage size of 'statbuf' isn't known

Expected results:
No error at all.

The fix is obvious and testing should be easy, proposing as fastrack.
