Problems with compailing autogenerated files Printer on Solaris

AndjeoAndjeo Member Maja DimitrijevicOrganization: GeomantProject: GEMB
Hello,

I'm just starting with Ice and I have problems with compailing the sample Printer file from demo folder. When I executed the command
c++ -I. -I/usr/Ice-3.2.0/include -c Printer.cpp Server.cpp

I keep getting error:

/opt/Ice-3.2.0/include/IceUtil/Exception.h:19: `exception' is not a class or nam
espace
/opt/Ice-3.2.0/include/IceUtil/Exception.h:19: confused by earlier errors, baili
ng out.

Line number 19 in Exception.h is
"class ICE_UTIL_API IllegalArgumentException : public Exception".

Also, when I tried with make command, I got error:

"make: Fatal error in reader: Makefile, line 34: Unexpected end of line seen".

Line 34 in Makefile is "CPPFLAGS := -I. $(CPPFLAGS)"

Can someone help me with this?

Thanks in advance,

Maja

    Welcome to the ZeroC forums.

    Which compiler and operating system (and which versions) are you using?
  • AndjeoAndjeo Member Maja DimitrijevicOrganization: GeomantProject: GEMB
    I'm using Solaris 10 and gcc-3.4.6.

    As can be seen on http://www.zeroc.com/platforms.html this combination is not officially supported and therefore may or may work. Unfortunately for you it appears that it does not work.

    Since you are using /opt I guess you are using some binary distribution you downloaded from us? If so, this cannot and will not work since its for use with Sun C++ 5.8 (part of Sun Studio 11). So, first you must build Ice with gcc, and that appears to have some problem. What you could try is editing include/IceUtil/Exception.h and adding #include <exception> to the top of the file. That may get you further along in the compilation process.

    Your problem with make is likely because you are not using GNU make. This is required to build Ice, as stated in INSTALL.SOLARIS:
    GNU Make 3.80
    -------------
    
    GNU Make 3.80 is required to build Ice on SPARC/Solaris. GNU make is
    distributed on the "Solaris 10 OS Companion Software DVD":
    
    http://www.sun.com/software/solaris/freeware/
    

    That all being said I suspect you will have a far less frustrating experience if you use what we actually support on this platform -- Sun C++ 5.8. This compiler is free -- so unless you have a compelling reason to use gcc I would use this compiler instead.

    I installed Sun Studio 11 and I'm using Sun C++, but I still have problems.

    I got error :
    "Fatal error in reader: ../../../config/Make.rules, line 119: Unexpected end of line seen".

    Can you help me with that?

    Hi,

    It looks like you're still not using GNU make as Matthew mentioned above. What does "make -v" say on your Solaris machine?

    Cheers,
    Benoit.

    The sam error:

    "make -v: Fatal error in reader: Makefile, line 34: Unexpected end of line seen"
  • benoitbenoit Rennes, FranceAdministrators, ZeroC Staff Benoit FoucherOrganization: ZeroC, Inc.Project: Ice ZeroC Staff
    Yes, this indicates that you're not using the GNU make. If you were using GNU make you would see:
    GNU Make 3.80

    Did you try using the "gmake" command instead of "make"? Depending on the platforms, GNU make might be installed as "gmake" instead of "make".

    If this doesn't work, this means that GNU make is not found in your PATH. You should check if it's installed on your machine and add it to your PATH. If not installed, you should install it, you'll find it on the "Solaris 10 OS Companion Software DVD" as Matthew mentioned above.

    Cheers,
    Benoit.

    I tried gmake. I got error:

    "gmake: execvp: /opt/Ice-3.2.0/bin/slice2cpp: Invalid argument"

    Everything is added to PATH.
  • benoitbenoit Rennes, FranceAdministrators, ZeroC Staff Benoit FoucherOrganization: ZeroC, Inc.Project: Ice ZeroC Staff
    Sorry, it's difficult to help if you don't provide more information.

    From which directory are you running gmake?

    Are you trying to compile the Ice source distribution? Or did you install the Ice binary distribution in /opt/Ice-3.2.0 and now try to compile the demos?

    Cheers,
    Benoit.

    Also, try "gmake --recon", and post the output here.

    Please verify that you have execute permission on slice2cpp and icecpp in that directory.

    Best regards,

    Slice2cpp, icecpp have execute premission. I install Ice binary distribution in /opt/Ice-3.2.0 and sample programs for binary archivesand I try to compile the demos.

    Hi Maja,

    From the printer demo directory, could try running the following and see if it works?

    /opt/Ice-3.2.0/bin/slice2cpp Printer.ice

    On which architecture do you run Solaris 10, SPARC or x86? The Ice-3.2.0 Solaris 10 binary installer was compiled for the SPARC architecture. So if you use a x86 platform it won't work and most likely result in the gmake error you're getting.

    To use Ice with Solaris 10 on an Intel/AMD platform, you'll need to compile Ice from the source distribution. You can download the Ice source distribution from our download page. Follow the instructions from the INSTALL.SOLARIS file at the top level of the source distribution to compile Ice.

    Cheers,
    Benoit.
