I tried to compile cvs-1.10 on a different set of machines (see my
previous message). Strange enough, compilation fails on AIX-4.1.5,
4.2.0, and Solaris-5.5.1. It compiles OK on IRIX-5.3, 6.2, 6.3 and
On the failing systems, I invariably get the error:
dir.c:66: syntax error before `*'
The line-66 reads:
register DIR *reading = opendir (dir->name);
DIR is some struct, defined in /usr/include/dirent.h and indeed found
with the configure step.
I did find exactly the same error reported in dejanews, and also a
solution (redhead and juggling with installed kernel-stuff). This
juggling probably created some workaround or change in ENV settings
because after a reinstallation of the identical cvs-sources the person
could compile. Now I can do reinstallations lots of times, so far I
keep getting the same error. I do not think I can do some hacking and
juggling with kernel-material, so that wont solve it. Remains ENV
Now I have a question first: Has anyone successfully compiled cvs-1.10
with gcc-2.8.0 on AIX-4.1.5, 4.2, or Solaris-5.5?
Please remove 'the end' of my email address before replying to it.
