Building on Ubuntu
« on: August 14, 2007, 10:03:54 am »
I've been trying to build sfml on ubuntu linux 7.04.  CMake fails with this error:
The end of a CMakeLists file was reached with an IF statement that was not closed properly.
Within the directory: /home/dan/Projects/sfml/src/SFML/System
The arguments are: UNIX
-- Configuring done
-- Generating done
-- Build files have been written to: /home/dan/Projects/sfml/src

Which in turn causes a whole mess of problems in Clock.cpp

I changed line 34 from
ENDIF(WIN32)
to
ENDIF(UNIX)
and cmake succeeded (however I'm still getting build errors but I'll give you an update on that.

cheers

CMake files are currently not working, I need to update and test them.

For the moment, you should rather use the provided makefiles for Linux builds.

Ah ok, i'll give that a shot, but by the way, it seems the problem was that it wants GL/glew.h from my system (probably a good policy since it will probably be up to date for the system) but that was the only build error, i'm going to try placing my glew.h in my /usr/include and see what happens

Okay.

A friend of mine is also building a Debian package, so that people won't have to worry about the external libraries setup anymore.

Indeed, i'm working on a debian package.

I would be pleased to make you test the package when ready. I'll open a topic about it.
