Damn incorrect ./configure

Postby kornerr » Tue Oct 03, 2006 12:10

When will gcc be replaced with g++ for testing. See config.log:

Code: Select all

- - - -
configure:25384: gcc -E -I/home/other/apps/irrlicht/include/  conftest.c
In file included from /home/other/apps/irrlicht/include/irrArray.h:10,
                 from /home/other/apps/irrlicht/include/irrlicht.h:34,

Probably never. Since this has never come up for anybody else - which means that in all likelyhood, the problem is related to something else.

Which host system are you compiling on?
Which version of gcc is being used?
If you are bootstrapping, which versions of AutoConf, AutoMake etc, are being used?
Which version of CEGUI is being used?
Which version of Irrlicht is being used?

This information, and other diagnostic information is usually of much more use than a handful of lines taken from config.log which, when taken out of the context of the whole file, mean absolutely nothing.

It's because no one can get cegui working with irrlicht, including myself. Because no one here can make tut for that.
When I comment out #include <new> all compiles ok. But I fail to make it work with cegui.
I hope someone will find time to write small working example.

It's not that no one can get it working; you mean you can't get it working.

The samples within the system show CEGUI working with Irrlicht - this has been tested on GNU/Linux and Win32 systems; I can confirm that it definitely works.

That are samples and nothing more, they're not tutorials. This means, one cannot learn from them.

Of course one can learn a lot from samples, but i agree that UI prefer tutorials too :) and it's true that there are not so much tutorials about cegui out there :( maybe you should make an announce on the wiki like "searching documenters" or something like that ?

yes and if people don't try they will never have time / or be good at writing tutorials. We all haven't time but somes take the time for the benefits of all of us. I think it is not a question of time but of motivation.

CEGUI is simply at too early a stage to expect extensive documentation/tutorials. Things in the library are changing/breaking and also having to maintain docs does not make the job easier.

About the irrlicht problem, as CE said you should post some more information. I've personally tested successfully in Windows with VC8 and Dalfy+CE has tested in Linux.

Have you tried the irrlicht community? The errors you have posted does not look CEGUI related at all... Maybe you are missing a required #define or something...

HTH

P.S. Thanx for the kind words pompei2 :)
