    Declaring struct problem

    Hi,

    I'm learning how to use semaphore under linux, but I'm having an error when I declare a struct I never had under windows.

    error: redefinition of 'struct sembuf'

    Code:
    typedef struct sembuf
        {
        unsigned short sem_num;
        short sem_op;
        short sem_flg;
        }sembuf;
    
    int main()
        {
        sembuf* sbuf;
        }
    I searched the linux board but I can't find a solution for this error.
    Some help would be appreciated.

    sembuf must have been defined in one of the headers you included in your program.
