Description Colin Walters 2008-12-19 16:39:17 UTC
Right now we warn on these constructs:

#ifdef DBUS_HAVE_INT64
              /* I think I probably mean "GNU libc printf" and not "GNUC"
               * but we'll wait until someone complains. If you hit this,
               * just turn off verbose mode as a workaround.
#if __GNUC__
              _dbus_verbose (" u64: 0x%llx",

"llx" here is wrong; like all the printf formatters, it is for a variable size type (long long int, which is only defined to be *at least* 64 bits - it could be larger).

What we need are internal macros similar to GLib's G_INT64_FORMAT etc.

This looks fine.

dbus_uid_t and dbus_pid_t have format macros DBUS_UID_FORMAT and DBUS_PID_FORMAT; shouldn't they be used rather than casting uids and pids to int?

It's a little bit upsetting that dbus-monitor will silently omit values if configure couldn't figure out DBUS_INT64_PRINTF_MODIFIER. Maybe it should print "int64 (omitted, see fd.o#19195)"?

Any progress on this?

(I'd personally be tempted to say "D-Bus now requires 64-bit integers, and support for them in printf" and see whether anyone reports that this breaks their OS... GLib has the same requirement, now.)

See also Bug #35114.

This appears to have been fixed (with wjt's suggestions included) between 1.2.22 and 1.2.24.
