Re: Bug#225449: wxwindows2.4: problems with ia64
I'm CC'ing that message to debian-ia64 to get a wider audience. I am
asking the list to CC their answers to Ron if applicable because he is
certainly not subscribed.
We have currently a problem with wxwindows2.4 on ia64. All the binaries
are compiled with
off_t == long long
which is wrong IMHO. You can see it after installing libwxgtk2.4:
$ nm -D /usr/lib/libwx_gtk-2.4.so.0 | c++filt | grep wxFile::Read
000000000052f380 T wxFile::Read(void*, long long)
The binaries are compiled with the following CFLAGS:
$ wx-config --cflags
-I/usr/lib/wx/include/gtk-2.4 -DGTK_NO_CHECK_CASTS -D__WXGTK__
The arguments '-D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 -D_LARGE_FILES' are useless on
ia64 but should not hurt. Now I have tried to recompile audacity which
depends on wxwindows and 'off_t' is now 'long' only which means that it
cannot be linked with wxwindows because C++ has strong type checking.
After recompiling wxwindows it has 'off_t == long' too! I compiled a
small C++ code fragment the uses 'off_t' and that compiles to 'long' too
(not 'long long').
My questions are now:
1. Is 'off_t == long long' really wrong on ia64 as I assume?
2. Do we need to recompile wxwindow2.4 for ia64 and all packages that
depend on it?
