Cannot build Code::Blocks from source
« on: April 30, 2019, 02:43:31 am »
I try to build Code::Blocks from source in CentOS 7.6 but it fails.
 
1. I get the source code from trunk:
    svn export http://svn.code.sf.net/p/codeblocks/code/trunk

2. Install wxGTK development pre-requisite
    yum install -y wxGTK-devel

3. Run the commands as listed in http://wiki.codeblocks.org/index.php/Installing_Code::Blocks_from_source_on_RPM_based_distributions#Build_the_RPM_package
    cd trunk
    ./bootstrap
    ./configure
    make dist

4. I get the following errors in 'make dist'
make[4]: Leaving directory `/home/fmserver/Downloads/CodeBlocks/trunk/src/plugins/xpmanifest'
 (cd contrib && make  top_distdir=../../../codeblocks-17.12svn0 distdir=../../../codeblocks-17.12svn0/src/plugins/contrib \
     am__remove_distdir=: am__skip_length_check=: am__skip_mode_fix=: distdir)

I rebuild the source with the following commands and get a different error.

* make all
* make list

I am able to finish the build with a different configure flag
* ./configure --disable-fortran
* make all
* make list

How do I build an installable RPM after this?
Where do I run the command 'rpmbuild --rebuild codeblocks*.src.rpm' from?  (This is part of the instructions to build the RPM.)

Why do you export the svn repository? This removes the svn metadata which will lead to revision 0 in the about box which is not really helpful. Plus without extra parameters it doesnt include the externals, thats why FortranProject is missing for you.

I use 'svn checkout' to get the source code but 'make dist' still gives me the same error.
  • svn checkout http://svn.code.sf.net/p/codeblocks/code/trunk
  • cd trunk
  • ./bootstrap
  • ./configure
  • make all <----- This works.
  • sudo make install <--------- This works, too.
  • make list <----- This fails.  Is it OK to ignore the errors?

    make: *** [dist] Error 2
Question: how do I build the RPM?
According to the instruction, I need to run 'rpmbuild --rebuild codeblocks*.src.rpm'.  But where to run it from?

Code: [Select]
./bootstrap
./configure
make dist
rpmbuild -ba codeblocks*.tar.*

If you like you can use a separate build folder.

Because 'make dist' cannot finish the build, I get the following errors:

Pass --disable-fortran or make sure you download the external fortranproject...

I am running CentOS 7.6 and I use the command "svn checkout http://svn.code.sf.net/p/codeblocks/code/trunk" to get the source.  The output shows 'Fortran' plugin is downloaded:

I can complete 'make dist' if I use './configure --disable-fortran'.  But it still fails in 'rpmbuild'.

$ rpmbuild -ba codeblocks*.tar.*
error: File /home/fmserver/Downloads/CodeBlocks.http/trunk/codeblocks-17.12svn11664.tar.bz2 does not appear to be a specfile.

I was able to build revision 11558 with 'make' and the RPM.
(I forgot the command to build RPM, but now I will keep this in mind.)

Can you build the RPM from the instructions in "http://wiki.codeblocks.org/index.php/Installing_Code::Blocks_from_source_on_RPM_based_distributions#Build_the_RPM_package"?

Sorry rpmbuild -ta is the correct command...

Thanks.  The build is now complete.  This is what I learn from the exercise:
  • Run './configure --disable-fortran' after './bootstrap' in the first pass, otherwise it will fail in 'make dist'.
  • Only need to run 'make dist' to create the *tar.bz2 file. There is no need to run 'make', 'make all', etc.
  • Resulting RPM files are located in $HOME/rpmbuild/RPMS/x86_64

Thanks for all the help.  I hope someone can figure out why 'make dist' fails unless '--disable-fortran' is specified during configuration. (Sorry, I am just a simple user not a Code::Blocks developer.)
