the sys_errlist.h problem

hi everyone !!!i hope that all the members are in good mood help me in my problem!!

when i'm trying to compile with gcc i got this problem:

gcc -c -DLINUX -DUNIX_OPSYS -DDEBUG -I/home/oracle/Open2/COMMON/inc -I/home/oracle/Open2/dbg -I/home/oracle/Open2/syu/inc -I/home/oracle/Open2/syu/LGM/inc -I/usr/local/oracle/9.2.0/precomp/public -DLINUX -DUNIX_OPSYS -DDEBUG -I/home/oracle/Open2/COMMON/inc -I/home/oracle/Open2/dbg -I/home/oracle/Open2/syu/inc -I/home/oracle/Open2/syu/LGM/inc -I/usr/local/oracle/9.2.0/precomp/public -c -o su_lgm_lib_ctim.o su_lgm_lib_ctim.c
su_lgm_lib_ctim.c:39: erreur: conflicting types for ‘sys_errlist'
/usr/include/bits/sys_errlist.h:28: erreur: previous declaration of ‘sys_errlist' was here
make: *** [su_lgm_lib_ctim.o] Erreur 1
when i go to the code there is nothing unusual :

/* Project: ePOST/Open2 */
/* File Name: su_lgm_lib_ctim.c */
/* Subsystem: System Utilities */
/* Module: LGM - Log Manager internal libraries */
/* Process: LGM */
/* Description: Log Manage common functions */
/* Author(s): R. Navone */
/* Created: 24-Set-1996 */
/* Modification History */
/* */
/* Revision Date Who modified Description */
/* ........ ..-...-.... ............. ............................... */

/* INCLUDEs and DEFINEs */

#include "su_lgm.h"
#include "su_debug.h"

/* What string. It must be defined in all source files */
static char lgmlib_c[]="@(#)$Workfile: su_lgm_lib_ctim.c $,$Revision: 2.0 $,$Modtime: 30 Jan 2003 15:36:32 $";

#ifdef FL_STATIC
static char *SrC_NAmE = __FILE__;
#define _FL SrC_NAmE,__LINE__
#define _FL __FILE__,__LINE__

extern int errno, sys_nerr;
extern char *sys_errlist[];
extern int Debug;

/* Function: our_ctime */
/* L.M. Date: 24-Jun-1996 */
/* Description: Like the orginal ctime(), but the returned string doesn't */
/* contain new line (s). */
char *our_ctime(time_t t)
register char *p1, *p2;

p1 = p2 = (char *)ctime(&t);
if (*p1 == '\n')
*p1 = 0;
i tried to resolve this problem so i tried to go to the

and i open it but i didn't understand anything:

#ifndef _STDIO_H
# error "Never include <bits/sys_errlist.h> directly; use <stdio.h> instead."

/* sys_errlist and sys_nerr are deprecated. Use strerror instead. */

#ifdef __USE_BSD
extern int sys_nerr;
extern __const char *__const sys_errlist[];
#ifdef __USE_GNU
extern int _sys_nerr;
extern __const char *__const _sys_errlist[];
so i included the stdio.h in the file and nothing happen,i tried to use the -D OPTION to tell the complierv to use __USE_GNU

any idea for this problem!!

sys_errlist is already defined in something it included and doesn't need to be defined again in su_lgm_lib_ctim.c. They probably tried to avoid including anything that defined it, but somehow it did. Playing with -D won't stop your own code from defining something that already exists, and you shouldn't define GNU_SOURCE without understanding the effects it has anyway(lots -- it's saying "I use and want to use all nonstandard GNU extensions"). Nor will adding another header help when it's defined too many times already. Smilie Try just commenting out the line:

//extern char *sys_errlist[];
