Re: Slackware 14.2 - plugin compile probs.

did you use the slackbuilds.org build scripts for wxGTK3? what was your configure options. did you add the -enable-graphics_ctx per the instructions in the manual or is it needed? the manual is a bit outdated. here is what my command looks like....

./configure \
--prefix=/usr \
--libdir=/usr/lib${LIBDIRSUFFIX} \
--sysconfdir=/etc \
--enable-shared \
--enable-mediactrl \
--with-opengl \
--enable-graphics_ctx \
--with-gtk=2 \
--enable-unicode \
--enable-plugins \
--enable-ipv6 \
$stl \
--build=$ARCH-slackware-linux


can you post yours so i can compare.

thanks

Re: Slackware 14.2 - plugin compile probs.

@slackerson It was the box standard slackbuild for wxGTK3.The --enable-graphics_ctx is included with this script.I initially did test version 4.4.0 with wxGTK.I could compile the main program o.k ,but was unable to compile many of the additional plugins.ie. route, weather_routing and weatherfax all crashed during compile.The addition of wxGTK3 sorted that.

Re: Slackware 14.2 - plugin compile probs.

@slackerson The state of play regarding two of my machines is as follows.I upgraded the slack14.1 64 bit desktop to a pure 64 bit 14.2 machine (it had to be done anyway). After that I installed all of the opencpn dependencies in addition to the wxGTK3 slackbuild.I then compiled version 4.4.0 against these dependencies using src2pkg.All plugins then compiled o.k., although I had to manually install them. As far as the laptop goes, I installed wxGTK3 as an alternative to wxGTK and version 4.5.0 compiled and installed o.k.All plugins compiled and installed manually as well.This machine was a slack14.2 64 bit + multilibs.By the way it was Thomas who pointed you towards the opencpn log and not me.So thanks for that Thomas.Rgds Paul H.

Re: Slackware 14.2 - plugin compile probs.

I guess i have been too vague about which plugins i've been concerned with. i mean the ones that are built in with the main app. like the chart downloader, grib etc...

anyway i tracked down the problem to my wxGTK3 pkg. it was compiled on a pre 14.2 current version of slack. with different glibc, kernel-headers ect... i just rebuilt it and then rebuilt opencpn 4.5.0 and shazam! plugins work!

there is still the problem of opencpn not knowing that it installed the plugin libs to the /user/lib64/opencpn dir so my slackbuild script creates the symlink before making the slackware pkg now.


the reason i don't use src2pkg is that i have my own custom building environment that creates a repository from built pkgs for use with my own slackware based distribution SlackBuilder. a distribution generator so to speak.

if your interested you can check it out at http://linuxoutpost.com. the documentation is incomplete at this time and it is still being developed so there maybe a few bugs here and there.

right now i am working on putting out a slackware based mariners linux distro. not only with binary pkgs but also complete with a slackbuild repo for use with the slackbuilding tools. slackbuilds.org does not have an OpenCPN slackbuild nor many other navigation apps so i have to build them from scratch.
