GG SVN1040 compile error, boost 1.46, debian sid, gcc 4.5.2

#1 Post by metallurge » Tue Mar 08, 2011 10:30 pm

GiGi SVN 1040, FreeOrion SVN 3989
Linux Mint, Debian Edition, pulling from sid repositories

I have compiled & installed the following prerequisites on my own, from source, using gcc 4.5.2-5:

boost 1.46
bullet 2.77
ogre 1.7.2

I was previously successfully able to compile against boost 1.45 using the above sources and gcc 4.4.something.

GiGi compilation now fails:

I believe that the root of this originates with a recent change to boost from a default of filesystem v2 to a default of filesystem v3, whereby some of the calling conventions changed.

A temporary fix of
#define BOOST_FILESYSTEM_VERSION 2
is a suggested remedy, but I haven't looked at where the best place to put that would be.

I also suggest a note be added here: http://www.freeorion.org/index.php/Compile_In_Linux, mentioning that GiGi SVN 853->1040 is incompatible with boost 1.46.

Reported as a bug in GiGi's sourceforge bugtracker.

I suspect the response will be "use boost 1.45" (or 1.44), but thanks.

Thanks for the response here, and you're welcome. While I elected to compile these dependencies on my own, it looks as though debian intends to go straight from boost 1.42 to 1.46. 1.42 is what is in the mainline repositories, and 1.46 just hit sid (as the first boost upgrade since 1.42) within the last week or so. So I'd personally say that GiGi is going to need to work with 1.46 at some point soon, to take advantage of debian's prebuilt boost. But things are also a bit wacked right now, debian-wise. Even debian sid's ogre3d is presently still compiled against boost 1.42.

Even if y'all don't choose to fix the underlying issue right now, it would be good to note the dependency on 1.44 <= boost <= 1.45 in the compile instructions.

FO itself doesn't seem to compile with Boost.Filesystem v3 either.

Also, "Compile In Linux" explicitly says to install Boost 1.42 on Maverick/Squeeze/Sid while current dev has 1.44 in CMakeLists.txt. That's a bit confusing.

The distro-specific instructions are probably out of date. There no-one actively maintaining them...
