#4033 closed defect (fixed)

Cannot compile with libpng 1.5.4 (zlib.h missing in MS5 branch)

Reported by: mko Owned by: tbonfort
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: MapServer C Library Version: 5.6
Severity: normal Keywords:
Cc: mko


The libpng 1.5.4 header file png.h does not link to zlib.h any more. MapServer can not be compiled --with-experimental-png.

Solution: add zlib.h to maprgbapng.c

Error message:

maprgbapng.c: In function ‘ms_png_write_image_init’:
maprgbapng.c:146: error: ‘Z_BEST_COMPRESSION’ undeclared (first use in this function)
maprgbapng.c:146: error: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
maprgbapng.c:146: error: for each function it appears in.)

Adding --with-png=... as suggested at did not work, because png headers to not define Z_BEST_COMPRESSION and do not include zlib.h any more.

libpng 1.5 was not released when mapserver 5.6 came out. Mapserver 6.0 does not use the zlib.h constants so it is not applicable for newer versions.

I was tempted to close this as wontfix, but decided to #define Z_BEST_COMPRESSION if it wasn't already defined rather than include zlib.h, to minimize the changes in the stable 5.6 branch.

fixed in r12586
