Tagged as a good fix to have in any 1.1.1 we release.

If we ever consider a 1.1.1 release, I think this would be a candidate for that.

http://hintsforums.macworld.com/showthread.php?t=2023 and http://stackoverflow.com/questions/12973311/difference-between-stdlib-h-and-malloc-h suggest that malloc.h is obsolete/deprecated, and it compiles just fine in gcc under Linux with your patch. Pushed, thanks!


Affects the current stable (1.1.0), so keeping as Fixed+Open.

Hello, I'm the maintainer of MyPaint in MacPorts. MyPaint 1.0.0 built fine but 1.1.0 fails with:

On OS X, according to "man malloc", you include stdlib.h, not malloc.h.

This change needed to be made in two files. I'm attaching the patch I made for this, but of course it's not suitable for systems where including malloc.h is needed. Perhaps you'll use some #ifdef to conditionalize this.
