Latest SVN Is Broken?


09-09-2009 18:54:28

I checked out the latest revision of OgreBullet from the OgreAddons SVN repo. I'm on Linux, and I couldn't figure out how to build the latest release (the readme says there should be Linux build scripts in there, but I can't seem to find them), and using SVN seems to be a common recommendation here anyway.
The build error was this:
Utils/OgreBulletCollisionsMeshToShapeConverter.cpp:31:27: error: ConvexBuilder.h: No such file or directory
Utils/OgreBulletCollisionsMeshToShapeConverter.cpp:363: error: ‘ConvexDecomposition’ has not been declared

Utils/OgreBulletCollisionsMeshToShapeConverter.cpp:394: error: ‘result’ was not declared in this scope
make[3]: *** [OgreBulletCollisionsMeshToShapeConverter.lo] Error 1

I'm not sure whether this is the result of a partial refactor or if that file is still supposed to be present.
Will this get fixed, am I somehow an idiot who's doing it wrong, or should I just go back to a working revision?

Oh, and my build steps were...

[make install] # I didn't get this far

I'm pretty sure this is the correct procedure, but I could be wrong.

For your build you need to add the include path to Extras/ConvexDecomposition via CXXFLAGS. See the following thread for an example.

Thanks, that got everything working.

Again, I hate to raise hairs by saying SVNs broken but I think that in this case it might be, since it seems to be complaining about not finding a function prototype in the bullet code. Can someone please confirm? I am using Bullet-2.75 with OgreBullet trunk. Is the Bullet version too new for ogreBullet svn support? If so, which version of Bullet must I use (i.e. other people have got working so far)? I believe SVN is not compatible with Bullet-2.68 at all ( which is the version that the wiki says is the latest supported.)

Here is the relevant error from make:

This question was raised at viewtopic.php?f=12&t=11562 and the solution was just to delete the extra constructor argument because the API no longer requires it.

Yes, thank you. I should have looked a little closer at the search results. I am sorry for the bother.

In any case I compiled Bullet 2.74 and compiled OgreBullet against it, and it compiled perfectly.
