Build Issues - gcc on Solaris

acbellacbell Member Andrew BellOrganization: Iowa State UniversityProject: National Resources Inventory ✭✭

I managed to get Ice built for Solaris using GCC. It seems to work, but I haven't done any extensive testing. I found and fixed a couple of other generic build issues as well. Does someone have an interest in integrating into the system? I can submit diffs that someone can look over if there is interest.

Also, Ice takes forever to build :( . Are there plans to allow builds of only the pieces that one needs?

    If you like, you can post your diffs in our patches forum.

    As for the partial builds, you can already do this. Just execute "make" only in those directories that you need. For example, if you neither want to compile the tests nor the demos, but all of the core libraries and tools, do a "cd src; make".

    What! Try building ACE/TAO. I did it on Solaris and I never want to do it again!

    I've built both and Ice was much easier to do [I also built it using
    g++ on Solaris]. I like the way the Ice sources and namespaces are
    organized. Makes it very easy to find stuff.

    ACE is probably so hard to read because it started when C++ compilers
    were just trying to catch up with the standard. The ACE portability
    macros make it very hard to read.
