Bootstrap with no wxWidgets packet installed
« on: February 20, 2018, 05:16:45 pm »
Hi,
i try to build codeblocks on linux, without wxWidgets installed, but compiled and installed by myself.

If i run ./bootstrap it can not find the wx-config macro:
Code: [Select]
configure.ac:141: error: possibly undefined macro: AM_OPTIONS_WXCONFIG
      If this token and others are legitimate, please use m4_pattern_allow.
      See the Autoconf documentation.
Now this seems ok, because i can provide the wx-config path by myself (it is /usr/local/bin/wx-config) but the ./configure command has no option --witch-wx-config and fails because it can not find the AM_CONFIG thing

Code: [Select]
./configure: line 21384: AM_OPTIONS_WXCONFIG: command not found
./configure: line 21385: syntax error near unexpected token `2.8.12,'
./configure: line 21385: `AM_PATH_WXCONFIG(2.8.12, wxWin=1)'

Is there a easy solution beside installing wxWidgets from repo?

Are you using an Debian based Linux; because it has an easy fix? I posted it somewhere in the Wiki an way to use alternates with self built wxWidgets.

thank you!
i also found this article in the mean time and i have tried this:
Code: [Select]
export ACLOCAL_FLAGS="-I `wx-config --prefix`/share/aclocal"with this i was able to go trought bootstrap and it is now compiling. But i would like to know what this does....

Code: [Select]
$ update-alternatives --install /usr/bin/wx-config wx-config /opt/wx/2.8/bin/wx-config 50can you explain what this does? Am i asked every time i run wx-config what version i would like to run? How does this go with autotools, or other tools that do not allow user interaction?

update-alternatives is used to switch an link to various real files.

I believe update-alternatives is an Debian only command.

No, it isn't.
It's copyrighted by Redhat in 2001 or 2002.

So, at least Redhat and Debian Linux Distros should have it.

There is an issue about this on the tickets page. The proposed solution there is to copy the file in out m4 folder.

OK, I think I hit the same issue here.
I'm on a ubuntu 14.04, I build wx3.1.1 library myself, with such command:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install libgtk-3-dev
cd wxWidgets-3.1.1/
mkdir gtk-build
cd gtk-build
../configure --enable-unicode --prefix=/home/zyh/code/wx3install/ --enable-monolithic
Then,
Code: [Select]
make
make install
I can build a simple wx program like:
Code: [Select]
zyh@zyh:~/code/wxWidgets-3.1.1/gtk-build/samples/minimal$ make
zyh@zyh:~/code/wxWidgets-3.1.1/gtk-build/samples/minimal$ ./minimal

Now, I have cloned the C::B source:
Code: [Select]
git clone https://github.com/obfuscated/codeblocks_sf.git
Then I run bootstrap, I get failed
Code: [Select]
zyh@zyh:~/code/codeblocks-git/codeblocks_sf$ ./bootstrap Using 'git log --graph' to get the revision
Found revision: '11442' '2018-08-07 07:14:29'

libtoolize: copying file `m4/ltsugar.m4'

configure.ac:142: warning: macro 'AM_PATH_WXCONFIG' not found in library
configure.ac:141: error: possibly undefined macro: AM_OPTIONS_WXCONFIG
      If this token and others are legitimate, please use m4_pattern_allow.
      See the Autoconf documentation.
configure.ac:142: error: possibly undefined macro: AM_PATH_WXCONFIG

Since I have no previous wx library installed on my system, I run such command: (I follow this wiki page: Page)
Code: [Select]
zyh@zyh:~/code/codeblocks-git/codeblocks_sf$ update-alternatives --install /usr/bin/wx-config wx-config /home/zyh/code/wx3install/bin/wx-config 50
But I still get the same bootstrap.

So, any ideas how to step further?
Thanks.

If some piece of memory should be reused, turn them to variables (or const variables).
If some piece of operations should be reused, turn them to functions.
If they happened together, then turn them to classes.

OK, bootstrap runs OK now.

zyh@zyh:~/code/codeblocks-git/codeblocks_sf$ echo $ACLOCAL_FLAGS -I /home/zyh/code/wx3install -I /home/zyh/code/wx3install/share/aclocal


EDIT:
As suggested by blauzahn, the correct command is:

Code: [Select]
zyh@zyh:~/code/codeblocks-git/codeblocks_sf$ export ACLOCAL_FLAGS="-I `wx-config --prefix`/share/aclocal"

also, those library need to be installed:
Code: [Select]
zyh@zyh:~/code/codeblocks-git/codeblocks_sf$ mkdir build
zyh@zyh:~/code/codeblocks-git/codeblocks_sf$ cd build
zyh@zyh:~/code/codeblocks-git/codeblocks_sf/build$ sudo apt-get install libhunspell-dev
zyh@zyh:~/code/codeblocks-git/codeblocks_sf/build$ sudo apt-get install libgamin-dev
zyh@zyh:~/code/codeblocks-git/codeblocks_sf/build$ ../configure --prefix=/home/zyh/code/cbinstall/ --with-contrib-plugins=all,-NassiShneiderman

If you need to build NassiShneiderman, some extra library need to be installed.

Yes that works. This is the way, I always use it in conjunction with wxWidgets trunk
on Ubuntu 16.04 (x86_64), antergos 18.07 (x86_64) and raspbian. During the last week I tried all of
them with current trunks of cb and wxWidgets.

I have a Makefile in a directory above cb trunk. In order to bootstrap and
configure for an out of tree build I use these 2 PHONY Makefile targets:

Code: [Select]
SRCDIR=trunk
BUILDDIR=build

bootstrap:
(cd $(SRCDIR) && ACLOCAL_FLAGS="-I `wx-config --prefix`/share/aclocal" ./bootstrap )

config:
@mkdir -p $(BUILDDIR)
(cd $(BUILDDIR) && ../$(SRCDIR)/configure --prefix=$(PREFIX) --with-contrib-plugins=all,-NassiShneiderman)

For the record: Your clone command is missing the last letter, ending with .gi instead of .git.

Have a nice day.

Oh, a copy paste error, I have fixed it in the post.

Thanks for your makefile, I also do not want to build the NassiShneiderman plugin, because it needs some extra boost related header files.  ;)

Code: [Select]
ACLOCAL_FLAGS="-I `wx-config --prefix`/share/aclocal"I just see this is a string concatenation, in my previous post, I added two "-I", which I think is wrong, thanks.

I meet an issue that the new build C::B can not run the debugger. I create a simple console project, when I hit the run bottom, it correctly shows the hello world in the xterm, while I hit the debug botton, C::B just hangs. Do you see the same issue, since I can't copy the debugger plugin log.

Which revision? Can you build an older revision to see if it works? Can you attach gdb to see what is going on?

I will try it as soon as I can.

OK, things becomes more strange, that is: debugger plugin works OK if I run C::B under GDB, while debugger plugin(the whole C::B) just hangs if I start C::B directly from command line. :(
