    Hi, Alex.

    It fails to compile on my machine (cannot find serial_interface.h). Maybe there are new dependencies for this? Is libbluedevil 1.9 enough for compiling an RC?


  • madgnu

    I’ve removed this include and it builds fine. Sorry for the noise.

  • John

    I found the same problem.

    Removing the include solved the compile problem for me too.

    Is this include a ‘leftover’ from development?

    Would be useful for others to fix this.


  • MarSarK

    It is a local include, so it can’t be from libbluedevil. Deleted “serial_interface.h” line and build fine. Testing now.

    Having an odd problem with 1.2rc2 and it also happens with 1.2. The make fails on;

    There were some other warnings prior but I don’t think they have anything to do with this. The warning were;

    I too get the same error here trying to compile for PCLinuxOS.
    1.1 compiles fine. Both 1.2.3 and 1.3 throw the same error.
