error: ‘regex_t’ has no member named ‘buffer’

Bug #234056 reported by Devid Antonio Filoni on 2008-05-22
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
glibc (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

When I try to build xview package in Ubuntu Intrepid I get error. I've searched for the cause of the problem and I've found that regexp.h in the new glibc version doesn't work as old version. I found this:
I think this can help you to do a fix for xview FTBFS providing a fix for regexp.h in glibc package.
