im using the latest libexif, which compiled and installed fine.
i also have the latest digikam source packwage, which configures fine, but suffers a mad compile error !
the compile error is cause by digikam passing the wrong number of arguments to a function in a libexif header file.
here are the gritty details....
digikam version = 0.6.2
libexif version (which is a dependency of digikam) = 0.6.9
/usr/local/include/libexif/exif-entry.h: In member function `void
/usr/local/include/libexif/exif-entry.h:58: error: too few arguments to
function `const char* exif_entry_get_value(ExifEntry*, char*, unsigned int)'
kexifentry.cpp:68: error: at this point in file
make: *** [kexifentry.lo] Error 1
here is the function call which causes the compile error (the last line)
from kexifentry.cpp (part of digikam)
mName = QString(exif_tag_get_name(mExifEntry->tag));
mTitle = QString(exif_tag_get_title(mExifEntry->tag));
mDescription = QString(exif_tag_get_description(mExifEntry->tag));
mValue = QString(exif_entry_get_value(mExifEntry));
and here is the function declaration of the libexif header file /usr/local/include/libexif/exif-entry.h
/* For your convenience */
const char *exif_entry_get_value (ExifEntry *entry, char *val,
unsigned int maxlen);
i cannot find the function body, its probably in anouther c or h file.
whats wrong !!! is there a patch available ?
maybe i could change the function call so it has all the needed parameters. (pass NULL as the char pointer, and 0 as the maxlen ?)
im lost !
