Ubuntu Linux 14.04 Compile bug in misc.cpp

Reported by: John Szetela Owned by:

Component version: Operating system type: Linux
Operating system version: Ubuntu 14.04 Kernel: 3.13.0-51


Filezilla 3.10.3 #6672
GCC 4.8.2
Compile Error:
../../../src/engine/misc.cpp: In function ¿int GetRandomNumber(int, int)¿:
../../../src/engine/misc.cpp:276:34: error: no match for call to ¿(std::uniform_int_distribution<int>) (std::random_device)¿

return dist(std::random_device());

Patch: src/engine/misc.cpp
int GetRandomNumber(int min, int max)

wxASSERT(min <= max);
if (min >= max)

return min;

/* JJS Commented out May 3, 2015

std::uniform_int_distribution<int> dist(min, max);
return dist(std::random_device());


/* JJS Added these two lines right from the GCC random documentation... */

std::random_device rd;
std::mt19937 gen(rd());

std::uniform_int_distribution<int> dist(min, max);
return dist(gen);


I would submit a patch, but I suspect the "real" fix is much simpler. I've been away from GCC for a while...
