Subject RE: Compiling with __USE_LARGEFILE64 on linux (RH8).
Date Mon, 15 May 2006 12:45:39 GMT
My bad, I've been using -D_LARGEFILE64_SOURCE just typed it wrong in the
I also need -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64.  Both flags are used to build my
main application.

I tried running configure on a RH8 machine.

configure CFLAGS="-D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64" --enable-lfs

I get the following message:
Check for compiler flags...
Checking whether to enable -D_LARGEFILE64_SOURCE... no

If I remove the CFLAGS setting it works fine.
