sys/types.h & linux/types.h conflict while compiling


Hi,

I'm having trouble solving this problem. I'm compiling xfce4-battery-plugin and I keep getting an error about conflicting types in sys/types.h and linux/types.h while making battmon.c. The output is:

if gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I. -I.. -DPACKAGE_LOCALE_DIR=\"/usr/local/share/locale\" -I/usr/include/xfce4/ -I/usr/include/xfce4 -I/usr/include/gtk-2.0 -I/usr/lib/gtk-2.0/include -I/usr/include/pango-1.0 -I/usr/include/glib-2.0 -I/usr/lib/glib-2.0/include -I/usr/include/cairo -I/usr/include/freetype2 -I/usr/include/libpng12 -I/usr/include/pixman-1 -I/usr/include/atk-1.0 -g -O2 -MT xfce4_battery_plugin-battmon.o -MD -MP -MF ".deps/xfce4_battery_plugin-battmon.Tpo" -c -o xfce4_battery_plugin-battmon.o `test -f 'battmon.c' || echo './'`battmon.c; \
then mv -f ".deps/xfce4_battery_plugin-battmon.Tpo" ".deps/xfce4_battery_plugin-battmon.Po"; else rm -f ".deps/xfce4_battery_plugin-battmon.Tpo"; exit 1; fi

Anyone know what's causing this?

Welcome to Linux Questions.

A usable version is here
http://packages.debian.org/lenny/xfce4-battery-plugin
[xfce4-battery-plugin_0.5.0.orig.tar.gz]
[xfce4-battery-plugin_0.5.0-7.diff.gz] The patch is important !

1) place the patch outside xfce4-battery-plugin-0.5.0 and
'patch -p0 < xfce4-battery-plugin_0.5.0-7.diff'

2) go to the "patch directory" xfce4-battery-plugin-0.5.0/debian/patches/
and move all patches outside xfce4-battery-plugin-0.5.0

3) apply patches 02 05 06 07 08. Patch 07 must be edited :

line 1, 2, 345, 346 change xfce4-battery-plugin-0.5.0.orig
to xfce4-battery-plugin-0.5.0

4) move patch 03 inside the xfce4-battery-plugin-0.5.0/ and
apply it there.

Now you can configure and make.
If you have questions, always tell, which Linux is used.

Good Luck !
