    hi all,

    i am trying to compile an app written in C,
    but what i get is :
    variator_internal.h:76: error: conflicting types for 'wait'
    /usr/include/sys/wait.h:241: error: previous declaration of 'wait' was here

    does anybody have an idea how to tackle this ?
    ( attached you can find the code that i am trying to compile)

    One is a standard Posix function, one is somewhere in your source code. If variator_internal.h just contains an incorrect prototype for the Posix "wait" then remove it. If your code has a function called "wait" conflicting with the standard Posix function then rename it.
