Description Sebastian Dröge (slomo) 2008-01-24 16:31:17 UTC
Compiling gst-libs/gst/rtsp/gstrtspconnection.c on FreeBSD currently gives, with latest CVS, the following compiler warning. Patch below fixes it.

gstrtspconnection.c: In function `add_date_header':
gstrtspconnection.c:374: warning: passing arg 1 of `gmtime' from incompatible pointer type

        * gst-libs/gst/rtsp/gstrtspconnection.c: (add_date_header):
        Cast glong to time_t as time_t might have a different type on
        other platforms, like FreeBSD, and we get a compiler warning
        otherwise. Fixes bug #511825.
