Re: [jasspa] Build failure on Linux 3.0
- Hi Ulrich,
Thanks for this. Sorry you had to do this.
Not being on the leading edge then not encountered Linux 3 yet, all been Linux 2.x systems.
As for auto tools then this has simply been a lack of time to invest in doing the work.
Thanks for your time here, we will try and get a patch out.
