Description W. Michael Petullo 2012-10-02 11:43:46 EDT
Description of problem:
There seems to be an incompatibility between libtirpc and glibc's rpcgen. What glibc calls (in rpc/xdr.h) xdr_quad_t, libtirpc calls (in tirpc/rpc/xdr.h) xdr_int64_t.

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

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Define an XDR RPC interface that uses the hyper type
2. Use rpcgen to generate stub code
3. Compile the code, using -I/usr/include/tirpc and -ltirpc
Actual results:
The code will not compile because the stub functions use xdr_quad_t, but tirpc/rpc/xdr.h defines xdr_int64_t. Compiling against rpc/xdr.h but linking against libtirpc succeeds, but the result segfaults at runtime.
Comment 1 Fedora End Of Life 2013-04-03 13:42:30 EDT
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 19 development cycle.
Changing version to '19'.

(As we did not run this process for some time, it could affect also pre-Fedora 19 development
cycle bugs. We are very sorry. It will help us with cleanup during Fedora 19 End Of Life. Thank you.)
