Veracrypt compile error " 'major' was not declared in this scope"


Running Slackware -current 32-bit on a 32-bit machine. Output of the compiling process and error message:
Code:
Compiling Directory.cpp
Compiling File.cpp
Compiling FilesystemPath.cpp
Unix/FilesystemPath.cpp: In member function ‘VeraCrypt::FilesystemPath VeraCrypt::FilesystemPath::ToHostDriveOfPartition() const’:

   84 |      linkPathName += StringConverter::ToSingle (major (st.st_rdev)) + string (":") + StringConverter::ToSingle (minor (st.st_rdev));
      |                                                 ^~~~~

make[1]: *** [/tmp/SBo/veracrypt-1.22/src/Build/Include/Makefile.inc:25: Unix/FilesystemPath.o] Error 1
make: *** [Makefile:372: all] Error 2
What exactly is it saying went wrong? I'm not too familiar with C or compiler errors in general. I can't tell what the cause of the problem is or what the problem itself even is really.

Seems that veracrypt-1.22 behaves buggy with a contemporary OS.
Suggest : Try out veracrypt-1.24.6 (Used in CentOS 8.)
Link https://codeload.github.com/veracryp...t_1.24-Update6
→ "VeraCrypt-VeraCrypt_1.24-Update6.tar.gz"

Example Slackbuild: veracrypt-1.24.6.tar.gz ( 2.2 kB )
https://www.dropbox.com/s/me3q98s0fg....6.tar.gz?dl=0

P.S.: `makeself´ https://slackbuilds.org/repository/1...earch=makeself
... is required.

Thank you very much! I'll compare the two scripts to try an discern the differences but if you wouldn't mind, could you give me a brief rundown of how you went about altering the script to get it to work? It looked like it was a bit more than just a version number change. Did you write the slackbuild up completely from scratch?

Re #3 : As far as I remember (a year back) it was "do and try".
Name and version was changed.
The source code had an odd name (VeraCrypt-VeraCrypt). Script edited.
The "doc" section didn't work. Omitted, but "doc" created OK anyway ?

See `diff's´ for yourself : + means added, - means delete ....
Code:
$ diff -dbBwaur old-1.22-veracrypt.SlackBuild VeraCrypt.SlackBuild
