error compiling php (5.2, I know very old): dereferencing pointer to incomplete type
 
Hi!

We have this PHP that we have hacked around here version 5.2. I had been able to compile it up until kubuntu 12.10. But I just tried to compile it on 13.04 and I get this error:

Code:

/bin/sh /home/antoranz/Descargas/php/php-5.2.17/libtool --silent --preserve-dup-deps --mode=compile gcc  -Iext/dom/ -I/home/antoranz/Descargas/php/php-5.2.17/ext/dom/ -DPHP_ATOM_INC -I/home/antoranz/Descargas/php/php-5.2.17/include -I/home/antoranz/Descargas/php/php-5.2.17/main -I/home/antoranz/Descargas/php/php-5.2.17 -I/home/antoranz/Descargas/php/php-5.2.17/ext/date/lib -I/usr/include/libxml2 -I/home/antoranz/Descargas/php/php-5.2.17/ext/mbstring/oniguruma -I/home/antoranz/Descargas/php/php-5.2.17/ext/mbstring/libmbfl -I/home/antoranz/Descargas/php/php-5.2.17/ext/mbstring/libmbfl/mbfl -I/usr/include/postgresql -I/home/antoranz/Descargas/php/php-5.2.17/TSRM -I/home/antoranz/Descargas/php/php-5.2.17/Zend    -I/usr/include -g -O2  -prefer-non-pic -c /home/antoranz/Descargas/php/php-5.2.17/ext/dom/node.c -o ext/dom/node.lo

Is there a problem with the gcc version installed on raring?

Code:

$ gcc --version
gcc (Ubuntu/Linaro 4.7.3-1ubuntu1) 4.7.3

I just checked and it's 4.7.2 on 12.10 so it shouldn't be that different, right? I'll hand compile 4.7.2 on my machine and try with it to see what happens while I wait for some comments.

Thanks for any ideas

May be not, but php-5.2.17 is "oldish".
So please try one of the other 13.04 compilers :
( sudo apt get install g++-4.4 g++-4.6 )

I.e. : $ export CC=gcc-4.6 CXX=g++-4.6 && ./configure -- --

Seems like the problem is described right here. Let's see where it takes me to

Well, I had to adjust the patch (manually) for php 5.2 but compilation has moved on. Let's see if it ends up working.

I would say it works... I think I'll be facing another problem now (with the ssl library). We'll see about that... but as far as this thread goes, it's solved.

I vaguely remember that in OpenSsl you have to manually enable outdated MD2 for older PHP versions.
