yes I did. the checkout is fine.
I just found a way to work around
after cmake .. ...
I edit CMakeFiles/objc.dir/link.txt and remove the word "pthread" in it. I can't figure out where it comes from. I have to leave this to the Cmake experts..
cmake also complains about some project() missing but that seems to be just a warning.
Maybe this might be triggered by a new cmake. I downloaded the cmake 3.16 today from cmake.com
. The stock debian cmake (3.13.4) is not good enough for libobjc2 apparently.
Now I can compile gnustep-base
The following tests are failing:
Failed test: blocks.m:31 ... Can forward enumerate array concurrently using a block
Skipped set: dispatch.m 118 ... No libdispatch, no blocks support or no runloop integration hooks in libdispatch
and one more about an empty plist file.
The dispatch one puzzles me a bit because libdispatch was explicitly installed and
|export OBJCFLAGS="-fblocks" was set|
Not sure if I should worry about that. Personally I don't use "GrandCentralDispatch" aka libdispatch but I usually want to build the base libraries so someone could use it.
gnustep-gui complains about
configure: WARNING: The International Components for Unicode (ICU) development headers and libraries do not appear to be available on this system.
despite libicu63 and libicu-dev packages being installed
fixes that (apparentyl theres no pkg-config file for libicu)
a few warnings about depreciated stuff in CUPS, I have a gnustep-gui
724 Passed tests
15 Skipped sets
1 Dashed hope
I also noted that gnustep-base is version 0.27.0 and gui and back are 0.28.0. Intentionally?
Have you had a look at this build script by Johannes? I believe it is in working order, although it may need the new git submodule init and sync commands in the libobjc2 checkout.
thanks but this only helps partially.
It seems to be the build tools for GNUStep are again broken. This is the thing which drives every newcommer mad and was driving me mad initially too. All the readme's and hints you find on the internet are already obsolete.
Now I get this error:
[ 7%] Built target objc-static
[ 7%] Linking C shared library libobjc.so
clang: error: no such file or directory: 'pthread'; did you mean '-pthread'?
make: *** [CMakeFiles/objc.dir/build.make:518: libobjc.so.4.6] Error 1
make: *** [CMakeFiles/Makefile2:476: CMakeFiles/objc.dir/all] Error 2
make: *** [Makefile:163: all] Error 2
This is now under Debian10 with clang-10 from the llvm repo.
cmake is very cryptic here to tell us where it breaks. so go figure....
