Patch to build Ice-1.2.0 on MacOS X 10.3

benoitbenoit Rennes, FranceAdministrators, ZeroC Staff Benoit FoucherOrganization: ZeroC, Inc.Project: Ice ZeroC Staff
Here's a patch to build Ice-1.2.0 on Mac OS X 10.3.x! To apply the patch:
  • Unpack Ice, tar -zxvf Ice-1.2.0.tar.gz
  • Unzip the patch, gunzip macosx.patch.gz
  • Apply the patch: cd Ice-1.2.0; patch -p1 < macosx.patch

Then, follow the instructions from the INSTALL.MACOSX file in the top level directory of your patched Ice distribution. Let me know if you have any issues with this patch!

Benoit.

  • Problem with macosx patch

    Thanks for the patch. I applied it and run into the following problem:

    c++ -c -I.. -I../../include -DICE_API_EXPORTS -DICE_PROTOCOL_API_EXPORTS -g -ftemplate-depth-128 -Wall -D_REENTRANT FactoryTableDef.cpp
    FactoryTableDef.cpp: In member function `IceInternal::UserExceptionFactoryPtr
    Ice::FactoryTableDef::getExceptionFactory(const std::string&) const':

    function)
    FactoryTableDef.cpp:74: error: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only
    once for each function it appears in.)

    My machine runs macosX 10.3 (panther) or more specific

    The used gcc is

    Any ideas?

    Interesting, looks like this symbol was added in one of the minor 10.3.x update? I used 10.3.2 for the port.

    Could you try the following for me and send me the output?

    $ grep RTLD /usr/include/dlfcn.h

    You could either try to update to 10.3.2 or comment out the offending code in src/Ice/FactoryTableDef.cpp (however the automatic registration of user exception and class factories won't work and will cause the test/IcePack/deployer test to fail). I'll see if I can install 10.3 on another partition to try it out.

    Benoit.
  • Hi,

    my powerbook is running MacosX 10.3.2.
    Here is the result of running grep

    grep RTLD /usr/include/dlfcn.h
    #define RTLD_LAZY 0x1
    #define RTLD_NOW 0x2
    #define RTLD_LOCAL 0x4
    #define RTLD_GLOBAL 0x8
    #define RTLD_NOLOAD 0x10
    #define RTLD_NODELETE 0x80
    #define RTLD_NEXT ((void *) -1) /* Search subsequent objects. */
    #define RTLD_DEFAULT ((void *) -2) /* Use default search algorithm. */

    Regards

    Mmm, I don't see why it's not finding this symbol if it's correctly defined in /usr/include/dlfcn.h :(. Is your C pre-processor perhaps picking up another dlfcn.h installed on your system? Can you try the following?

    $ cpp -v

    This should print the include search path.

    Benoit.
  • Thanks for the quick replies. Here is the output of cpp -v.
    Hope this helps.

    Ok, so you have the following in your include search path:

    /usr/local/include
    /usr/include/gcc/darwin/3.3
    /usr/include

    I don't have any /usr/local/include directory on my system. Do you perhaps have a dlfcn.h file in /usr/local/include which is different from /usr/include/dlfcn.h and doesn't define RTLD_DEFAULT? If yes, do you know where it could come from?

    Benoit.
  • Hi,

    it is as you said I have a dlfcn.h in /usr/local/include and it does not define RTLD_DEFAULT. Its presence might be related to the an earlier attempt
    of installing mono (There is a directory /usr/local/include/mono on
    my system as well).
    I check whether I can safely get rid of the /usr/local/include so
    that cpp finds the propper dlfcn.h.
    I keep you informed. Thanks a lot for your help so far!

    I'm glad we figure it out! You could also try to add -I/usr/include to the CPPFLAGS variable defined in Ice-1.2.0/config/Make.rules to make sure it's first in the include search path. Let us know if you have any other problems using Ice on Mac OS X!

    Benoit.
  • Hi Benoit,

    finally I got Ice-1.2.0 compiled and installed on macosX 10.3.2. Thanks!
    (I've used expat and db4 from the fink distribution.)
    I run 'make test' and it reported ok on all tests.
    However, when I want to start the small Printer example from the Ice documentation
    I get the following error message.

    dyld: server can't open library: @executable_path/../lib/libIce.12.dylib (No such file or directory, errno = 2)
    Trace/BPT trap

    The problem seems to be that I don't know how to tell the dynamic loader where
    to find the Ice libs.
    Your help is appreciated.

    Jens
  • benoitbenoit Rennes, FranceAdministrators, ZeroC Staff Benoit FoucherOrganization: ZeroC, Inc.Project: Ice ZeroC Staff
    Did you set the DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH envrionment variable as mentioned in the INSTAL.MACOSX file? You should set it to point to the Ice-1.2.0/lib directory.

    Benoit.
  • You are right. It is working now.
    Thanks a lot!

    Hi Digvijay,

    Welcome to our forums.

    What is Icecat? If you're talking about GNU IceCat, I am afraid you're on the wrong forums. These forums are about the Internet Communications Engine (Ice), which is unrelated to GNU IceCat.

    Cheers,
    Bernard

    sir
    i thought that i m getting the same error "regarding dlfcn.h" as one of the person in the same thread.
    so i posted in this thread.

    If u dont have any clue, can you please sujjest any suitable forum for Icecat where i resovle my problem
    thanks
    cheers

    Sorry, this look like a totally different problem and there's not much we can do to help you. You should try to find a forum or mailing list for Icecat and post your question there.

    Cheers,
    Benoit.
