zlib.h version fix should be cherry-picked

Bug #692595 reported by Steveire on 2010-12-20

cmake (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: cmake

KDevelop is so slow as to be unusable if loading any project which uses zlib. The reason is a change in the version string in zlib.h to have four components instead of three.



Please cherry-pick the fix into an update for maverick

git cherry-pick 5850b8b79a813dbe8ad380c88878260cae3d7cbc


TEST CASE: Open a project that uses zlib in kdevelop. Watch it be insanely slow and unusable. Install package from -proposed. Try again and be productive.

Confirmed that we have the relevant zlib version in both Maverick and Natty.

Fix uploaded for maverick-proposed. Now we need to wait for ubuntu-sru to review and accept the change.

Accepted cmake into maverick-proposed, the package will build now and be available in a few hours. Please test and give feedback here. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you in advance!

I'm not sure I can test the package in proposed, because I have backports enabled, and I seem to already have cmake 2.8.3 through that.

I downgraded to cmake-2.8.2-2 and kdevelop was still working at acceptable speeds:

This bug was fixed in the package cmake - 2.8.2-2ubuntu0.1

cmake (2.8.2-2ubuntu0.1) maverick-proposed; urgency=low

  * Cherry pick 5850b8b79a813dbe8ad380c88878260cae3d7cbc from cmake 2.8.3 to
    fix zlib.h processing to that using kdevelop for projects that use zlib is
    not unusably slow (LP: #692595)
