Errors as trying to install a project


Hi,

I am running Fedora 10 and have been trying to compile & install a project by using the included make file, but I'm getting a bunch of errors. The make file specifies g++ 4.3.2. Here is my error(libAnomaly is a library which I am trying to compile):




Code:
../../include/libAnomaly/item.h:149: error: 'hash' is not a template
../../include/libAnomaly/item.h:150: error: explicit specialization of non-template 'std::hash'
../../include/libAnomaly/item.h:310: error: extra qualification ignored
../../include/libAnomaly/item.h:311: error: explicit specialization of non-template 'std::<anonymous struct>'
../../include/libAnomaly/item.h:311: error: an anonymous struct cannot have function members
../../include/libAnomaly/item.h:321: error: abstract declarator 'std::<anonymous struct>' used as declaration

                 from item.cpp:21:

../../include/libAnomaly/model.h:269: error: expected ';' before '<' token
In file included from ../../include/anomaly.h:75,
                 from item.cpp:21:

../../include/libAnomaly/profile.h:184: error: 'std::hash' is not a template
../../include/libAnomaly/profile.h:186: error: no match for call to '(std::hash) (const char*)'
../../include/libAnomaly/item.h:156: note: candidates are: size_t std::hash::operator()(const Item*) const
make[2]: *** [item.lo] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/root/Desktop/Libanomaly/libanomaly-0.1/libanomaly-0.1/src/lib'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/Desktop/Libanomaly/libanomaly-0.1/libanomaly-0.1/src'
make: *** [all-recursive] Error 1




The problem seems to be connected to hash_map, but no sure. Before running Fedora 10, I have been running fedora 8, there was g++ 4.1.2, but the errors were the same, now I'm wondering what can I do?

Best Wishes, Zahra

Hi Zahra,
Usually source code to be compiled contains an INSTALL and/or README file that alerts you to any special requirements that you might need. Have you looked at them?

Is this a "one size fits all" compilation or is there a configure script that you need to run first?

Just a couple of thoughts.
cheers,
jdk

Hi jdk

At first, thank you for your immediate reply.

As you mentioned the source code contains an INSTALL file, but it's general to some extent, I bring the main part of this file:

Code:
The simplest way to compile this package is:

  1. `cd' to the directory containing the package's source code and type
     `./configure' to configure the package for your system.  If you're
     using `csh' on an old version of System V, you might need to type
     `sh ./configure' instead to prevent `csh' from trying to execute
     `configure' itself.

     Running `configure' takes awhile.  While running, it prints some
     messages telling which features it is checking for.

  2. Type `make' to compile the package.

  3. Optionally, type `make check' to run any self-tests that come with
     the package.

  4. Type `make install' to install the programs and any data files and
     documentation.

  5. You can remove the program binaries and object files from the
     source code directory by typing `make clean'.  To also remove the
     files that `configure' created (so you can compile the package for
     a different kind of computer), type `make distclean'.  There is
     also a `make maintainer-clean' target, but that is intended mainly
     for the package's developers.  If you use it, you may have to get
     all sorts of other programs in order to regenerate files that came
     with the distribution.
there isn't any special suggestion, I have just followed the file, my problem starts as I "make" it, errors are represented whenever I run "make".

Due to INSTALL file I think, it is a "one size fits all" compilation.

Cheers,
Zahra

I'm not clear about what procedure you followed.
1. Did you run configure?
2. Did it run properly with no errors?
2. Did you check the configure.log for any errors?
cheers,

You find configure.log in the same folder that you find configure. It is created when you run configure.

Hi,
I found the file, as I have been checking it for any errors, I come to these:

Code:
...

conftest.cc: In function 'int main()': conftest.cc:15: error: 'exit' was not declared in this scope configure:2425: $? = 1 | /* confdefs.h.  */ 

...

configure:2374: g++ -c -g -O2  conftest.cc >&5 conftest.cc:11: error: 'void std::exit(int)' should have been declared inside 'std' configure:2380: $? = 1 configure: failed program was: | /* confdefs.h.  */ 

...

configure:2374: g++ -c -g -O2  conftest.cc >&5 conftest.cc:11: error: 'void std::exit(int)' should have been declared inside 'std' In file included from conftest.cc:12: /usr/include/stdlib.h:531: error: declaration of 'void std::exit(int) throw ()' throws different exceptions conftest.cc:11: error: from previous declaration 'void std::exit(int)' configure:2380: $? = 1 configure: failed program was: | /* confdefs.h.  */

...

configure:3320: result: none needed configure:3338: gcc -c -g -O2  conftest.c >&5 conftest.c:2: error: expected '=', ',', ';', 'asm' or '__attribute__' before 'me' configure:3344: $? = 1 configure: failed program was: | #ifndef __cplusplus |   choke me | #endif 

....

configure:4306: gcc -E  conftest.c conftest.c:14:28: error: ac_nonexistent.h: No such file or directory configure:4312: $? = 1 configure: failed program was: | /* confdefs.h.  */ 

...

configure:4381: $? = 0 configure:4413: gcc -E  conftest.c conftest.c:14:28: error: ac_nonexistent.h: No such file or directory configure:4419: $? = 1 configure: failed program was: | /* confdefs.h.  */
...

It seems the failure may be due to confdefs.h...I think. Seriously, I do not know what to do next.

Best Wishes, Zahra

Hi Zahra,
Frankly I don't know what to do either. I surprised that configure terminated normally with all those errors. Maybe someone with more knowledge of C can tell you. At this point I can only suggest reading the documentation that comes with the program to see if you are missing any vital component. Sorry.

Have you contacted the authors of the library? That code is 6 years old, perhaps it is not compatible with the current STL.

as rtaft stated it is old code. do you have the lagacy gcc installed ( gcc34 )
Code:
yum groupinstall "Legacy Software Development"
how did you install gcc ? like this ?
Code:
yum groupinstall "Development Tools" "Development Libraries" "GNOME Software Development" "KDE Software Development"
these two "GNOME Software Development" "KDE Software Development" might not be needed .

if you do have gcc34 installed just export it to configure
Code:
export CC=gcc34 
./configure --prefix=/usr ( then your other options )

Thank you for your answer and sorry to be late,

Nowadays I donít have access to high speed Internet at all, that's a national limitation, it's not permanent of course, so it have taken me more than usual to follow your suggestion, but by the way I have done it, but no difference, I received same errors, Iím not expert neither in gcc nor even in Linux, but can these problems due to gcc version? I have checked the project with two versions. Any suggestion?

Best Wishes, Zahra

you might need to rewrite the code for it to build using gcc 4.?
4 was "strict" and had some changes
4.1 was MORE "strict" and had more changes changes
4.3 was EVEN MORE
and 4.4 has more changes

but most of the time it is just a matter of adding something like this to the .cpp or .h files
" #include <climits>" or change " #include <stream.h> 'to this " #include <iostream> "
see the gcc porting guides
4.4
http://gcc.gnu.org/gcc-4.4/porting_to.html
4.3
http://gcc.gnu.org/gcc-4.3/porting_to.html
----------
http://gcc.gnu.org/gcc-4.2/
http://gcc.gnu.org/gcc-4.1/
