PyIce on FreeBSD/amd64


I've created a port of PyIce for FreeBSD. It compiles just fine on i386 platform. But on amd64 it gives an error. Here are the details.

$ uname -srm
FreeBSD 6.0-BETA4 amd64

$ gcc -v
Using built-in specs.

Thank you.

    Hi Boris,

    Thanks for the bug report. There are three files which have this problem: Current.cpp, Operation.cpp and Types.cpp. To correct the compiler error, you need to change the cast from int to long. For example, in the case of Operation.cpp, change line 330 from

    int i = reinterpret_cast<int>(closure);


    long i = reinterpret_cast<long>(closure);

    Similar changes are necessary in the other two files.

    We'll fix these errors in the next release.

    Take care,
    - Mark
