View Full Version : Compiling error only with 64bit Ubuntu

Hi.. I was trying to compile Avetana for linux, a third-part software that implements the java api for bluetooth in linux with bluez. I have this problem compiling it in 64bit ubuntu.. In this file, it gives me an error:

g++ -shared -lbluetooth -I /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun- -I /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun- BlueZ.cpp -o /home/roby/pippo/libavetanaBT.so
BlueZ.cpp: In function ‘jint Java_de_avetana_bluetooth_stack_BlueZ_createServic e(JNIEnv*, _jclass*, _jobject*)’:
BlueZ.cpp:1412: error: cast from ‘ServiceHandle*’ to ‘jint’ loses precision
make[1]: *** [libavetanaBT.so] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/roby/avetana/c'
make: *** [csource] Error 2

and in that line the code is like this:

return (jint)srh;

The funny thing is that in ubuntu 6.10 i386 it doesn't have this problem, because I have tested it on my old pc.. Why does it have a compiling error only with 64bit? How can I do to solve it? I would prefer to use my new pc and to not downgrade it to i386

What is srh? Is it a long or a double?

ServiceHandle *srh = (ServiceHandle *)malloc (sizeof (ServiceHandle)); -> this is the declaration of srh

I'm slightly confused why you would be casting a ServiceHandle pointer to an int, but that is your problem. In a 64 bit machine, pointers are 64 bits, but ints are still 32. On a 32 bit machine, pointers are 32 bits and ints are 32 bits.

It's not code written by me, that's the problem.. Anyway, I'll write to them about this!
