Cannot compile e2fsprogs (v 0.4.10, and lower versions too).
I can compile virgin e2fsprogs that is not patched with e2compr, but with the e2fsprogs tar ball downloaded from this site I get compile errors that complain about missing files.
Can somebody load a binary package or a debian package? Thanks.
Just received beautiful help from kermit in AOLM about the compiling error. This error seems to happen because of a bug in glibc-devel (Not confirmed yet! I'm reporting it as soon as I find out where to do so!).
I'm running Mandrake with kernel 22.214.171.124 and glibc-devel 2.3.3, so if your specs are the same or similar, it might pay off to try this (can't hurt):
In the file from the e2fsprogs-e2compr source package,
at the top is the include line,
- add a line so it now looks like this,
That did the trick for me. Perfect compile, all tests passed.
Hope this helps anyone, and thank you kermit! :)
