In Debian we are currently applying the attached patch to XML-LibXML. We thought you might be interested in it, too. From 99f67c5d0e13912c824b7d93ff4303524bd9cb54 Mon Sep 17 00:00:00 2001 From: Niko Tyni <email@example.com> Date: Sun, 20 May 2012 22:32:31 +0300 Subject: [PATCH] Fix test failures on 64-bit big endian platforms As seen in <Show quoted text>, t/12html.t is crashing on 64-bit big endian platforms with
> Out of memory! > # Looks like you planned 43 tests but ran 41. > # Looks like your test exited with 1 just after 41. > t/12html.t .......................... > Dubious, test returned 1 (wstat 256, 0x100) > Failed 2/43 subtestsSTRLEN has 64 bits here and int has 32, so the (int*) cast in XML::LibXML::Document::toStringHTML() makes htmlDocDumpMemory() store the 32-bit length of the result into a 64-bit variable. Depending on the endianness, it either works OK (LE) or corrupts the variable (BE) Just use an 'int' instead, and cast it to an STRLEN later in the newSVpvn() call. --- LibXML.xs | 4 ++-- 1 file changed, 2 insertions(+), 2 deletions(-) diff --git a/LibXML.xs b/LibXML.xs index 8ac23bf..581cc48 100644 Thanks in advance, gregor herrmann, Debian Perl Group
