Description Niels de Vos 2012-04-28 17:26:03 UTC
Description of problem:
It is not possible to build dhcp-forwarder anymore. The following build error causes the build to fail:

In file included from ./compat/if_packet.h:26:0,
                 from src/main.c:39:
/usr/include/linux/if_packet.h:176:2: error: unknown type name '__aligned_u64'

A full log of the failed build ( is attached.

It seems that the type '__aligned_u64' is not available in /usr/include/asm/types.h or /usr/include/linux/types.h anymore. The attached patch fixes the build by defining '__aligned_u64' in the compat-layer if it is not defined already.


Please apply the attached patch and push a new build to the master (Rawhide) and Fedora 17 branches.
