Description klaus.kaempf 1999-01-22 08:12:43 UTC
In /usr/include/netinet/in.h the structure ip_opts has a
data member also named ip_opts. According to the ANSI C++
Standard (and from discussion on egcs@cygnus.com) this is
not allowed. When including this file in a C++ program,
egcs flags this as an error.
Since I don't know who's responsible for the include files
in RedHat 5.1 (the glibc maintainer ?), please forward this
report.

I have verified this to be true in 5.1 and also in 5.2. It is being
assigned to a developer for further review.

Comment 2 Cristian Gafton 1999-02-10 20:25:59 UTC
This problem is fixed by the glibc 2.1 header files
