I just tried to compile gserver2 trunk (1110) on Windows with VS2010.
I get 21 errors, seems to be all related to boost header not found.
Not really sure I am suggesting to have boost included in dependencies… suppose only if boost lib is small enough.
Edit 1) No, I am looking at the size now, I don’t want that repeated for each tags and branch!
Edit 2) I seems to see only boost/thread.hpp errors…
Maybe just putting this part in dependencies could be ok?
yeah you can build it with no boost. you can also edit the service/Makefile file after you run build_gmake or whatever. in there you can do something like L/pathtoboostlibaries/ then do -lboost_thread. i had to do all this crap on freebsd to make it compile. this is all assuming you install the libraries.
also, if you are on windows, just download the binary. wtf you doing compiling it unless you changed something?
while he may not possess the knowledge that a frequent user such as you do about the inner workings of the gserver or perhaps the level of knowledge about compiling programs or programming than most users on the forum, you sir lack
Well, not sure why the define had not gone through with premake.
But manually adding the define, in gserver2 properties (Configuration properties, C/C++, Preprocessor, Preprocessor definitions, Edit) of VS2010, have work fine, after Build/Rebuild solution: 0 errors, 117 warnings.
… maybe I should have manually erased the old .sln file before 're’doing:
build_vs2010 --no-boost --os=windows --platform=x32 --version
oh, the --version was the problem I think, I was expecting that it would make the options, and moreover show the verison… but then I did not realized that it ignored all the others options I had given.
But I guess doing a clean, would have help… I would not have any .sln file, which would have been better.
