[Openswan Users] Compile error

Hello, Yiannis.


I had the same or similar error on FC5.


Here is a answer from Paul Wouters that can help you:


One of my servers was indeed not up to date. It was still using
glibc-devel-2.4-4 instead of glibc-devel-2.4-8.


On Fedora Core 5, glibc-devel-2.4-8's sys/queue.h file changed from version
8.3 to version 8.5. The macro LIST_INSERT_HEAD changed and got an extra
while() loop around it, without a trailing ";", breaking our call in
server.c that depended on the previous behaviour of the macro expanding to
an if statement that ended with a ";". As a workaround for this glibc bug, I
added an ";" to the LIST_INSERT_HEAD macro call.


We will release 2.4.6rc4 in the next few hours.




Best Regards
