------------------------


I have encountered some problems building 60u9 (and 60u8, 60u4) on fedora
core 6, and managed to fixed most of them, so I am going to detail it here.

(1) why the *&^%$£ is the default compiler switch in aimk contains both
-Werror and -Wno-error? Earlier gcc seems to think if you specify both, it
means no (or the last one take effect) - gcc 4.1 on fc6 seems to believe it is
the opposite - if you specify both, it means aborts on any warnings. I have to
strip out the -Werror's from aimk.

(2) "config.sub" in  source/3rdparty/qtcsh and source/3rdparty/qmake
are too old to recognise "x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu" on kernel 2.6 as a
valid platform.
You need to copy this file from a more recent automake/autoconf/libtool.
On my box many of these are the same and in any case, more up to date
that V60u9 is carrying:

/usr/lib/rpm/config.sub
/usr/lib/rpm/redhat/config.sub
/usr/lib64/php/build/config.sub
/usr/share/apps/kapptemplate/admin/config.sub
/usr/share/automake-1.4/config.sub
/usr/share/automake-1.5/config.sub
/usr/share/automake-1.6/config.sub
/usr/share/automake-1.7/config.sub
/usr/share/automake-1.9/config.sub
/usr/share/libtool/config.sub
/usr/share/libtool/libltdl/config.sub

(3) There wasn't any instructions about using the platform version
of ssl and crypto (which fedora ships). I had to do something quite ugly like this:

perl -pi -e \
's(^set SECLIBS_STATIC.+)(set SECLIBS_STATIC = " -lssl -lcrypto ")' source/aimk

I don't have a static version of those libraries around. (most linux users don't!).

(4) same thing with autodetecting the location of the openssl and includes.
I have to do:
perl -pi -e 's(/vol.+?\$buildarch)(/usr);' source/aimk.site

(3), (4) can be fixed and routinely done automatically by many
open-source software with autoconf, etc. ok, at least they can be detailed
in README.BUILD for manual editing. (1) and (2) is just plain-broken.

BTW, the dependency checking also does not seem to work reliably. often
e.g. aimk -only-qmon does not works after aimk depend (dies from not being able
to find some files), sometimes it requires a manual "aimk -only-core" or
some others in the middle. The problem seems intermittent.

The first issue apparently is well-known to the oscar project people -
this is in the SRPMS of sge-V60u8 they ship:
(http://svn.oscar.openclustergroup.org/oscar/branches/branch-5-0/packages/sge/SRPMS)

# The following patch (aimk.patch) removes all "-Werror"
# from the aimk script. Otherwise, the SGE build fails
# after warnings (not errors) when built against
# recent versions of glibc - Babu Sundaram, 04/13/06
Patch4: aimk.patch

I have to strip -Werror as well from my Fedora rpm builds.  I'll attach a list
of all of the warnings I currently get during compilation.

  • Keywords build added; removed
  • Owner set to dlove
  • Severity set to minor
  • Status changed from new to assigned

Fixed apart from the config.sub.

Should replace qmake and qtcsh sources with current version plus
SGE patch.

comment:2 Changed 9 years ago by dlove

  • Summary changed from IZ2112: ion pains and solutions on fedora core 6 to IZ2112: compilation pains and solutions on fedora core 6

comment:3 Changed 9 years ago by dlove

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from assigned to closed

Apparently only the configure issue still outstanding, and only in qmake.
It doesn't stop the build and is best addressed by #832.
