Hi Felix,

I guess I didn't scroll far enough back on the master commit history.

In regards to the strings deprecated warning, is that something we want fix in all the ocaml code? Should I make an issue for it?

Hi Rijesh,

this is due to a packaging bug of lablgtk 2.18 in Debian (it wrongly reports that it's 2.16).

See for details and the workaround I made.
That workaround was already merged in master, but I forgot to backport it to v5.8... applied it there as well now.

Cheers, Felix

Hi all,

I just installed ubuntu 16.04 and upgraded all my packages. I then went on
to install paparazzi using the one liner.
When doing so I ocaml version 4.02.3 was installed by default.

Got a few build errors and warnings when compiling ocaml.
I got the warning that strings was deprecated use bytes instead.

I got the error:
Error: This _expression_ has type int32 but an _expression_ was expected of type

I attempted to fix this by installing opam and running:
opam install -v lablgtk.2.16.0

This resulted in the recompilation of ocamlnet to fail.

I then went and downgraded to ocaml 4.01.0:
opam switch 4.01.1

Then I reinstalled any dependencies as required.
