usplash_timeout_get_string not exported

Bug #224709 reported by James Westby on 2008-04-30
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
usplash (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: usplash


usplash 0.5.10 changed usplash_get_string in libusplash.c
to usplash_timeout_get_string, but did not update
the header file, so currently usplash doesn't export the
latter, and exports the former which doesn't exist.

There are three solutions that I see to this problem:

  * Rename the declaration in the header
  * Add back a wrapper function usplash_get_string
     that calls the new function.
  * Do both and have both functions exported.

This is needed to fix bug 114688, which I think may
qualify for an SRU, so I would like it if this could be considered
for an SRU as well.

This bug was fixed in the package usplash - 0.5.25

usplash (0.5.25) intrepid; urgency=low

  * libusplash.h: Export usplash_timeout_get_string() definition and provide a
    backward compatibility definition for usplash_get_string(), which got
    more or less accidentally removed in r174. This is a prerequisite for
    fixing bug 114688. Thanks to Andrea Gasparini for the patch!
