Top 10 Compile & Install time for common free software.

I will update the graph with all the software packages (updated) ,  right now, excluding big programs (like Libreoffice and Chromium) LLVM qt-everywhere is the clear winner of time consuming when compiling an OS from source.


Error: eudev-1.7 won’t compile with gcc 7.1 & glibc-2.25

When compiling eudev with gcc 7.1 and glibc 2.25 (x64) you may get a this error wich will not let you compile/install:

This is caused because in prior gcc versions the nested header file was ‘included’, but the C standard does not guarantee this, so with new versions this ‘feature’ was removed, its not strictly an error but you need this change to make it work:

How to fix:

Add this into eudev-1.7/src/mtd_probe/mtd_probe.h file:

* Boston, MA 02110-1301 USA

+#if defined __UINT32_MAX__ || UINT32_MAX
+ #include <inttypes.h>
+ #else
+ typedef unsigned char uint8_t;
+ typedef unsigned short uint16_t;
+ typedef unsigned long uint32_t;
+ typedef unsigned long long uint64_t;
#include <mtd/mtd-user.h>

Please rename it to .patch extension after download.
