#4655 closed defect (invalid)

libffi required patch modification

Reported by: Pau Coma Ramirez Owned by: Fernando de Oliveira
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: BOOK Version: SVN
Severity: normal Keywords: patch


The required patch to be applied Required patch: following changes the pkgconfig file, libffi.pc, should not be applied

-Cflags: -I${includedir}


When attempting to compile glib2 sources, "ffi.h" is required and not found if the includedir is not defined in the compiler flags.

My solution. I manually modified my libffi.pc file.

The proposed solution. Update the patch.

I cannot confirm this. All seems to work for me. Please, can you elaborate and/or post the relevant part of the error?

comment:2 by Fernando de Oliveira, 10 years ago

About this, without a reply, I am thinking about closing as invalid tomorrow. Any thought, anybody, please?

I am assuming no objections to close as invalid. Will do it later, probably today, when updating other packages.
