Welcome aboard, Commander! If you're craving FEII-like Newtonian physics, there's always Pioneer.
And, if you download an Archimedes emulator, there's Black Angel. I think. Although I too may have mixed that up with Frontier a bit...

Re: Building with XCode 10 ... tweaks needed

Aha.

Code: Select all

src/Cocoa/oolite-targets.xcconfig
had it hard-wired. (Found it by looking at the "levels" instead of "combined" in the Build Settings.

Now can we have a little chat about the 1413 warnings... :-)

Building with XCode 10 ... tweaks needed

I had a go building with XCode 10. 10 finally removes support for the long-deprecated libstdc++. I am surprised to find that if you switch the Frameworks/libjs target, libjs will build - BUT you have to change the build target to MacOS 10.7 minimum. Unfortunately there's another setting somewhere wh...

Time for a musical question: this song references a TV sci-fi series - which one?
The always magnificent Dirk Maggs included a live version of this in the H2G2 tour a few years ago - so there's another sci-fi link. (Along with Adams himself appearing WITH Pink Floyd once on rhythm guitar.)

Deru's 1979 is also an amazing album for soundtrack.
That's very Philip Glass / Terry Riley / Steve Reich. I'll have a listen!

The Orb, anyone?

I don't think you meant Snow Crash's Reason, but that description is pretty close. Does Reason count?

Re: Compiling on recent (2017) distros - GCC 6.x issues

What if you do the following: $ make -f Makefile distclean $ make -f Makefile release-snapshot Does it compile the whole thing? Nope. Here is the minimum needed for the make command, and I've included an example error of what happens when the flags are omitted. make -f Makefile release-snapshot \ O...

Re: Compiling on recent (2017) distros - GCC 6.x issues

I saw the latest commit included the "null" fixes so I started again with a fresh clone, just to make sure it does build now. Success! Thanks for all your help. I had to add -Ideps/mozilla/js/src/to the compile command as I suspected. Need to figure out why "make" isn't doing that automatically so w...

Re: Compiling on recent (2017) distros - GCC 6.x issues

+= did not fix it. (I think the makefiles do that anyway.) However, adding -DENABLE_ASSEMBLER to CXXFLAGS does! So there must be some piece of autoconf or Makefile logic broken somewhere... Brilliant, thanks. SpiderMonkey now builds. Except now the final link for oolite itself fails. :evil: Linking ...

Re: Compiling on recent (2017) distros - GCC 6.x issues

https://github.com/OoliteProject/oolite/issues/200 Well that's interesting... I was already wondering if it might be a problem with the different ways inline functions are handled in different standards, based on the discussion in this thread: http://clang.debian.net/status.php?version=3.5.0rc1&key...

Re: Compiling on recent (2017) distros - GCC 6.x issues

Quick grep shows it's enabled. Makefile:CXXFLAGS += -DUSE_SYSTEM_MALLOC=1 -DENABLE_ASSEMBLER=1 -DENABLE_JIT=1 I know exactly what you mean, but those .cpp files are definitely now getting built and the earlier link now succeeds. It's just this final step that's failing. Any way I can use nm on the i...

Re: Compiling on recent (2017) distros - GCC 6.x issues

The problem was src/yarr/Makefile needed -I.. to pick up some of the includes. The problem was it was silently failing due to a missing include. Changed that. Back up a level, did a make distclean to force everything to regenerate. It now seems to make it through to attempting to link libmozjs.so .....

Re: Compiling on recent (2017) distros - GCC 6.x issues

Brill. The problem now is that it builds ok, but there's a weird linking problem... I am wondering if I need to install some build dependency for Yarr, or whether we can just not build the Yarr JIT? make[4]: Entering directory '/scratch/src/oolite/deps/mozilla/js/src/build-release/shell' c++ -o js -...
