Subject:Mysql++ won't compile on CentOS 6 (patch included)
View as plain text  

I have just tried to compile MySQL++ 3.1.0 on CentOS 6, using rpmbuild and the 
included spec file. Unfortunately, the compilation failed because one of the 
cpp file (ssx/genv2.cpp) failed to include the C header "string.h" when it 
needed to:

g++ -c -o ssqlsxlat_genv2.o -Ilib      -I/usr/include/mysql -O2 -g 
./ssx/genv2.cpp: In function 'bool generate_ssqls2(const char*, const 
./ssx/genv2.cpp:70: error: 'strcmp' was not declared in this scope
make: *** [ssqlsxlat_genv2.o] Error 1
make: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs....
error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.AbkTZr (%build)

RPM build errors:
    Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.AbkTZr (%build)

Here is a patch that will include the needed header:

And here's a patch for the spec file to make sure it will actually use the
