[Weird] Linking problems
« on: December 12, 2012, 05:13:50 pm »
Hello, I'm trying out SFML for the first time and everything worked fine, with the example code. So then I started integrating it with my project and came across a really weird problem. So I started with this piece of code:
#include <SFML/Window.hpp>

/*
 * @brief Main function, entry point
 *
 * @return      Exit code
 */


int main() {
        sf::Window window;
        return 0;
}
 

And got the following errors:
Quote
/usr/local/lib/libsfml-window.so: undefined reference to `sf::Clock::Reset()'
/usr/local/lib/libsfml-window.so: undefined reference to `sf::Unicode::UTF8Offsets'
/usr/local/lib/libsfml-window.so: undefined reference to `sf::Clock::Clock()'
/usr/local/lib/libsfml-window.so: undefined reference to `sf::Clock::GetElapsedTime() const'
/usr/local/lib/libsfml-window.so: undefined reference to `sf::Unicode::UTF8TrailingBytes'
/usr/local/lib/libsfml-window.so: undefined reference to `sf::Sleep(float)'

Now, I 'fixed' it like so:
#include <SFML/Window.hpp>

/*
 * @brief Main function, entry point
 *
 * @return      Exit code
 */


int main() {
        sf::Clock testClock; //this fixed the problem???!!!!
        sf::Window window;
        return 0;
}
 



it builds fine, no errors at all...

Someone please help me?

By the way, I'm using SFML 1. 6 on an Ubuntu machine

Did you link to sfml-system?

Yes, I do so in my src/CMakeLists.txt
Quote
set(CMAKE_MODULE_PATH "../cmake_modules/" ${CMAKE_MODULE_PATH})
find_package(SFML 1.6 REQUIRED system window graphics network audio)

No, you don't. What you do is finding the package, not linking. In CMake, you can link with the command target_link_libraries. The command names are quite expressive, aren't they? ;)

And I recommend to start with SFML 2. It has more features, less bugs and is actively developed.

I tought SFML 2 was still in beta? And sorry, I forgot that portion where I actually link it, but it's in there:
Quote
#SFML lookup
set(CMAKE_MODULE_PATH "../cmake_modules/" ${CMAKE_MODULE_PATH})
find_package(SFML 1.6 REQUIRED system window graphics network audio)

#Executable
add_executable(${exec_name} ${exec_source_files})

#Libraries
set(project_libraries config engine graphics grid input unit util)
set(external_libraries ${SFML_LIBRARIES})
set(libraries  ${project_libraries} ${external_libraries})

#Libraries Link
target_link_libraries(${exec_name} ${libraries})

No, there is a release candidate. And you can get the newest sources from GitHub.

I suggest you try it with SFML 2, because the 1.x versions were not designed with CMake integration in mind. For example, the FindSFML module has been written for version 2.

Using SFML 2 indeed solved the problem!
