gcc fails to build silently in code::blocks
« on: February 03, 2019, 09:39:47 pm »
Hello,

I have created a new Project from the Template "Console application", Language C and GNU GCC Compiler.
In the new created Project when pressing the Compile Button I get this output in the Build log:

Code: [Select]
-------------- Build: Debug in RaspiTest (compiler: GNU GCC Compiler)---------------

gcc -Wall -g -fomit-frame-pointer -fexpensive-optimizations -Os  -c /media/daten/AVR/R/RaspiTest/code/main.c -o obj/Debug/main.o
g++  -o bin/Debug/RaspiTest obj/Debug/main.o  -s 
g++: error: obj/Debug/main.o: Datei oder Verzeichnis nicht gefunden
g++: fatal error: no input files
compilation terminated.
Process terminated with status 1 (0 minute(s), 0 second(s))
2 error(s), 0 warning(s) (0 minute(s), 0 second(s))

When looking at obj/Debug the file main.o does not exist.
When running the commands manually in the console, everything works as expected though.

I tried with Code::Blocks 17.12 on Debian amd64, as well as with Raspbian on the Raspberry Pi.
Project attached as zip-file.


Thanks for your help.
Best regards
Robert

The directory of the source file contains a non ascii character, CodeBlocks has trouble with these.

What is the FS of /media/daten?
Having a source file in /tmp/R/test works fine for me. :(

moving to another path without the makes it work indeed, however other projects with avr-gcc or gcc for ARM work perfect in this path.
/media/daten has an xfs file system.

I am guessing the Compiler is different for these cases, correct?

Could be the compiler is having the problem with the path instead of Code::Blocks.

trebor1718: What happens if you move this R2 folder in another file system? What happens if you try to create this path again?  Can you reproduce this with a simple console project which you can share? What are your locale settings? Have you changed them after you've created the R2 path?

I don't think so: when I run the commands in the same directory in a terminal window, everything works as expected.

I tried the same in my home folder (~/src/R/RaspiTest - ext4 FS), and it also does not work there. The same in another new path on /media/daten including . Everytime I created a new Project with code::block's "Console Application" template, like the one I attached in my first post.
My Locale LANG is set to de_AT.UTF-8. I did never change that.

Thanks
Robert

Ok, in fact the problem is already solved for me by moving to another path.
Nevertheless, if this problem is of interest for anyone and I can help by trying anything just reply.

Your problem is very similar to the one described here:

https://forums.wxwidgets.org/viewtopic.php?t=43236

It happened only in Linux, and is fixed in wxWidgets 3.1.0

I'm using 3.0.4+gentoos patches and it works fine.

@trebor1718: The problem is of interest. What is your wxwidgets version? The one from the help -> about dialog

Looking at wxWidgets' commits the relevant change seems the one made on 19-Feb-2016:

https://github.com/wxWidgets/wxWidgets/commit/704055f200d97f327a8ee5212762b41bf1d6d503#diff-5e75d58b03dd94b8366b5f127eea9287

3.1.0 was released ten days later
