Hi Ian or HIghoS (don't know which of you it is)
Here's a small hint for compiling wvdial-1.41. It needs a small change
to an #include.
TITLE: Wvdial hint
LFS VERSION: 3.0-pre4 (probably others as well)
AUTHOR NAME: Mark Hymers <mark-lfs at hymers.org.uk>
Fix for slight bug in one of wvdial's source code files.
To install Wvdial, you need pppd installed first.
Wvdial-1.41 has a slight problem which means that it won't compile
by default, exiting when trying to compile streams/wvstreams.cc
There is a fix for this. Open streams/wvstreams.cc and look for a line near
the top of the file which looks like this:
Change this to read
Wvdial should now compile OK with the normal make && make install routine.
Note that there is no configure and if you may want to change the default
install location from /usr/local you will have to edit Makefile manually.
The line you are looking for is:
You can alter this, and any other of the locations you want before running
