Problem Compiling 0.3.93 on Linux
« on: 15 August 2013, 18:31:31 »
Since Silnarm has returned to GAE recently I decided to re-download and install GAE to my current system.

I have installed all the necessary deps including Physfs. My system tells me I have version physfs 2.0.2 which should be sufficient. However I have reason to doubt this since GAE installed fine the last time I built from source on Ubuntu some 18 months ago and I have since switched to Linux Mint on my current machine.

I have attempted to rebuild and install physfs 2.0.2 myself to make sure, but ran into even more archaic and difficult errors with that.

Here is the error log.

Not sure if there is a simple way I could fix this?

p.s Just checked the linux packages on the chance they might work but they are not longer hosted (not surprising after 2 years i spose!)

Are you trying to build the beta release 0.3.93 or git master? Which gcc version are you using?

Please use git master! The old beta release doesn't build with newer gcc versions. Fixes are in git master.
See the compile guide for details: http://sourceforge.net/apps/trac/glestae/wiki/CompileGuideLinux

Thanks Yggdrasil, cloning from git works fine.  :thumbup:

moral of the story, don't try building a two year old download on an up-to-date system  :O

I'm just chiming in to say GAE also builds for me on Ubuntu 13.04 (on atibox, specs below). Its gcc 4.7.3 throws plenty of warnings and there are serious selection issues: clicking a single unit often selects multiple units of different types, or a building, double-clicking a unit often selects just this unit or deselects it, right-clicking on the map is often actually registered where a building is placed or another friendly unit stands, making your units not harvest and not attack properly, drawbox selection will often select units outside of the drawbox. Much of this should be due to GLSelectBuffer.
atibox: Ryzen 1800X (8 cores @3.6GHz), 32 GB RAM, MSI Radeon RX 580 Gaming X 8G, PCI subsystem ID [1462:3417], (Radeon RX 580 chipset, POLARIS10) @3440x1440; latest stable Ubuntu release, (open source) radeon (amdgpu) / mesa video driver
atibox (old): Core2Quad Q9400 (4 cores @2.66GHz), 8 GB RAM, XFX HD-467X-DDF2, PCI subsystem ID [1682:2931], (Radeon HD 4670, RV730 XT) @1680x1050; latest stable Ubuntu release, (open source) radeon / mesa video driver

Most of the warnings should be gone now.

But somehow i have the feeling you won't see the last commits. sourceforge seems to have moved our repository. If you followed the compile guide you have to switch to the new location:
Code: [Select]
$ git remote set-url origin git://git.code.sf.net/p/glestae/glestae
or edit .git/config directly.

Afterwards:
Code: [Select]
$ git pull
$ git describe
0.3-1013-g17d55c5
git describe should give you the same output.

about time to replace that ancient selection code me thinks, thanks for the report :)

Most of the warnings should be gone now.

I concur, here's what I have left, in case it helps:

You're right, I completely missed this. The above results refer to building the source at the new origin which for me, too, is at at 0.3-1013-g17d55c5.

Happily. It's nice to see some action here.
