Fedora Core 9

Postby edward » 13 Jun 2008, 13:33

Hi - Poco is really excellent, it is truly difficult to find good, portable and well-documented c++ libraries. Thanks for the effort in making it available and supporting it. (:biggrin:)

I use Fedora Core 6 on an x86 maxhine that runs gcc 4.1.2, and Poco compiles and bulds without any problems.

I recently download FC 9 on a x86-64 bit machine, that runs gcc 4.3, and there are two problems with the build of the libraries. I have sorted the first one, solution below, but would need help on the 2nd.

I would be very happy to help in any way to save you time, let me know how I can help.

First Problem
Has to do with std library, that seems to have changed between the 2 versions of gcc.


line 5 add #include string.h

line 268 replace std::strlen with strlen


line 5 add #include string.h

line 439 replace std::strerror with strerror

I am not sure how comfortable you are including the old .h header files, but at least it compiles.

Second Problem

I get this error :
gmake[1]: *** No rule to make target `/home/eag/dev/cpp/lib/poco-1.3.2/Foundation/obj/Linux/x86_64/debug_shared/URI.o', needed by `/home/eag/dev/cpp/lib/poco-1.3.2/lib/Linux/x86_64/libPocoFoundationd.so.5'. Stop.


I am not too good at Linux, but it seems as if there is no rule to build this particular shared library on Linux 64-bit ?

Thanks for you help.

Best regards,

I suspect you are using released code.

Fedora core 9 / g++ 4.3.0 compilation problems have been [url=http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=1984042&group_id=132964&atid=725711|fixed] in the subversion repository. See if http://poco.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/poco/poco/branches/poco-1.3.3/|1.3.3] or [http://poco.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/poco/poco/trunk/]trunk[/url works for you.
