Mismatch on flock/flock64 between glibc/linux-headers

Bug #268311 reported by Michael Casadevall on 2008-09-09
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
glibc (Ubuntu)
Nominated for Intrepid by Timothy Pearson

Bug Description

When trying to build kdelibs, which uses both the kernel headers for inotify (which pulls in the kernel fnctl.h), and glibc's fnctl.h, it FTBFS from source on amd64 (and I think i386). This test program shows the issue

#include <fcntl.h>
#include <asm/fcntl.h>

int main() {
        return 0;

In file included from /usr/include/asm/fcntl.h:1,
                 from test.c:2:
/usr/include/asm-generic/fcntl.h:117: error: redefinition of ‘struct flock’
