BeOS compilation problems w/sky module in current CVS tree

Reported by: SF/kreeblah Owned by: SF/olki
Priority: normal Component: Port: BeOS
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game:


This has happened before later stopped (only reporting this as a warning, for some reason . . .), but I'm getting the following error when compiling the current CVS tree.

g++ -Wp,-MMD,"sky/.deps/text.d2" -g -O -Wall -Wstrict- prototypes -Wuninitialized -Wno-long-long -Wno-multichar -Wno- unknown-pragmas -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -DUNIX -I. -Icommon `sdl- config --cflags` -c sky/text.cpp -o sky/text.o /boot/home/ScummVMCVS/1306032256/scummvm/sky/text.cpp: In method `struct displayText_t SkyText::displayText(char *, uint8 *, bool, short unsigned int, unsigned char)': /boot/home/ScummVMCVS/1306032256/scummvm/sky/text.cpp:316: initializing non-const `uint8 *&' with `byte *' will use a temporary make: *** [sky/text.o] Error 1

I still don't understand what the difference between an 8-bit object and a byte, but it's generating an error because of it.

As a side note, should I be submitting reports somewhere about compilation warnings (the forums, maybe?) or just compilation errors?

That this is marked as an error (or even a warning) is clearly a bug in your compiler.

However, it is also a sign of inconsistent use of the byte datatype vs. uint8 - even though they are, on the machine level, identical. Olki, you hopefully know which of you guys is responsible for that code, whoever is should try to fix this.

Yes, it did. The Sky module compiles fine now. Thanks, olki.
