rxvt-unicode patch to eliminate stropts.h build fail

Comment 8 Jeff Krebs 2008-06-02 16:56:46 UTC
I was getting the build error:

error: sys/stropts.h: No such file or directory

Some on-line research showed that "sys/stropts.h" was originally part of the
glibc-headers package (in Fedora 8).  My understanding is that Fedora 9 and
later will not ship with "sys/stropts.h".  I disabled ISA_STREAM in
rxvt-unicode's "" using the attached patch and things compiled fine,
and rxvt-unicode now runs.

Comment 9 Jeff Krebs 2008-06-22 12:48:49 UTC
The latest version of rxvt-unicode builds fine without any patching under Fedora
9.  "" performs more checks, including looking for stropts.h.

Comment 10 Jeff Krebs 2008-06-22 12:50:08 UTC
The latest version of rxvt-unicode is 9.05, BTW.

Comment 11 Matt Domsch 2008-07-08 04:40:22 UTC
builds as of 2008-07-03, version 9.05-1.fc10.
