#9844 closed bug (fixed)

Build failure on OS X due to GCC assuming case-insensitive FS

After updating buildtools to GCC 4.7.3 on OS X, it is no longer possible to build Haiku as GCC is behaving as though the filesystem is case-insensitive even though it is not. I've found the cause of this and reported it upstream (, just opening a ticket here so that we can track the progress of a fix and backport it to our GCC version.

I'm afraid we won't get much support given the non-mainstream aspect of the bug.

Have you tried to define HAVE_CASE_INSENSITIVE_FILE_SYSTEM to 0?

For reference here is the revision cited in the GCC bug.

Worked around in btrev43059 by undefining HAVE_CASE_INSENSITIVE_FILE_SYSTEM.

Can we close this ticket? It seems the workaround is enough, or maybe later versions of GCC fixed this already?

Yes, the OS X build is currently working so this can be closed.
