Comment 5 Ruben Kerkhof 2008-04-19 14:16:12 UTC
The build fails in xpopen.c, because ARG_MAX is not defined in
/usr/include/limits.h, but in /usr/include/linux/limits.h

Comment 6 Ruben Kerkhof 2008-04-19 14:17:56 UTC
This is probably because of the following change in glibc:
* Fri Mar 28 23:00:00 2008 Jakub Jelinek <jakub> 2.7.90-13
- update to trunk
  - don't define ARG_MAX in <limits.h>, as it is no longer
    constant - use sysconf (_SC_ARG_MAX) to get the current
    argument size limit

Comment 7 Bug Zapper 2008-05-14 08:46:13 UTC
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
