Our (SUSE's) PPC team fixed signed/unsigned stuff in OOo, see:

What do you think about to removing -fsigned-char?

reassign to hr for review.

@pmladek: I think we should apply this patch. Since I can't test PPC/Linux it
wouldn't be that helpful if I apply this one to one of my CWSs. Can you create a
CWS? Pavel can you QA this change?

Reassign to pmladek: please proceed if the PPC/Linux community approves.

We still use the change. I have attached the last version of the patch that is
based on some Caolan's clean up.

I am sorry, I do not have time to create the CWS => reassigning to the owner of
the component for further tracking.
Comment 9 2010-12-22 22:10:58 UTC
since nobody raised substantial objections to this in 3 years,
i guess it's time to commit it in any old CWS that happens to be lying around :)

thanks for the patch, pmladek.

fixed in CWS sw34bf03
Comment 10 2010-12-22 22:18:43 UTC
@pmladek: please verify

oh, and btw: the new gbuild stuff will of course not build with any arch
specific cflags
(because it only supports x86 and x86_64 right now).
so with this change all modules should be built with same char signedness on
Comment 11 2011-02-14 14:39:06 UTC
well, let's just assume it works :)
