#4939 closed defect (invalid)

Posix dependency for PHP on Gentoo should be noted in mythweb README/INSTALL

Reported by: David Shay <davideshay@…> Owned by: Robert Kulagowski
Priority: trivial Milestone: unknown
Component: documentation Version: 0.21-fixes
Severity: low Keywords: mythweb posix uname gentoo
Cc: Ticket locked: no


After upgrading to .21, mythweb stopped working with an undefined call to posix_uname. This was apparently associated with changeset 14847. I am running Gentoo, and as it turns out, the default options (USE flags) for compiling php do not include posix, therefore you get this error. A note should be added to either README or INSTALL to add "posix" to your use flags and re-emerge php if not already there.

This is a bug with the mythweb ebuild, not with Mythweb. Please submit a ticket with whoever maintains the gentoo packages.

I wasn't using the ebuild, but compiling from source, since I'm frequently on SVN. Looks like the ebuild for gentoo does the right thing, so I guess it's just me.
