View Full Version : Problems building RLDev

2006-05-07, 10:44
Hi, I'm trying to build RLDev on Mac OSX 10.4.5. I install godi and the packages specified in the INSTALL into a folder in /usr/local/, and I added the relevant bin/ and sbin/ to my PATH.

*** omake: reading OMakefiles
*** omake: finished reading OMakefiles (0.2 sec)
- build kprl /Users/XXXX/Desktop/rldev-1.39/bin/kprl
+ ocamlfind ocamlopt -package "bigarray,unix,extlib,ulex" -warn-error Asxyz -I . -I ../common -o /Users/elliot/Desktop/rldev-1.39/bin/kprl ../common/optpp.cmxa ../common/rlcmp.cmxa ../common/rlkfn.cmxa ../common/appconfig.cmxa app.cmx disassembler.cmx archiver.cmx main.cmx ../common/rlprims.a -linkpkg -cclib -lstdc++

*** omake: failed (5.1 sec, 0/38 scans, 1/89 rules, 1/391 digests)
*** omake: targets were not rebuilt because of errors:

Does anyone know how to solve this build issue? Or, barring that, could someone please put up statically linked Mac OSX binaries?

Here are the versions of the packages I'm using (as reported by godi_console):

godi-extlib 1.4
godi-ocaml 3.09.1
godi-ulex 0.8
godi-xml-light 2.2#1

Any help would be much appreciated.

Apparently the technique I'm using to link in some C++ code doesn't work on OS X. :(

Try the following patch:

That patch fixed that linking problem, but there's one more issue: OSX doesn't have a version of libpng with the header files. You have to install it through fink/ports/compile it yourself.

Anyway, I now have a working RLdev install. Thank you very much!

Glad to hear it's all working. I'll try to remember to add the patch (and document the libpng requirement) in the next update.
