Unhappy pftp compile problem!!


Hi,

I'm trying to compile pftp-shit a mod of pftp on my Fedora Core 5 box. I've got gcc-c++ and ncurses installed however I get this compile error:

Code:
[root@localhost pftp-shit.v.1.5]# gmake
cd src;gmake;cd ..
gmake[1]: Entering directory `/root/pftp-shit.v.1.5/src'
g++ -c -Wall -D_REENTRANT -I../include -O2 -I/usr/include -DTLS main.cc
main.cc: In function ‚int main(int, char**)‚:

gmake[1]: *** [server.o] Error 1
gmake[1]: Leaving directory `/root/pftp-shit.v.1.5/src'
I have also tried pftp-mew and have the same error. If anyone can help it would be muchly appreciated

thanks

Question server.cc

the problem is in server.cc
here is line 4980 and 4981

Code:
        dir_list = new (FILELIST *)[dir_count];
        file_list = new (FILELIST *)[file_count];

Exclamation hmm

ok so i edited server.cc and changed those lines to:

Code:
dir_list = new FILELIST *[dir_count];
file_list = new FILELIST *[file_count];
then it compiled fine

however now when i run pftp i get the following...

Code:
[root@localhost pftp-shit.v.1.5]# ./pftp 
FATAL system error #nnnn
CAUSE: We should never get here!

Looks that change wasn't necessarily the right change.

I would uncompress the source again and rebuild and send the compile output to the app maintainer. The problem is with is coding and unless you're a C++ developer, you'll need for the maintainer to fix this.

Peace...
