Description (last modified by ryandesign (Ryan Schmidt))

  • OS: Mac OS 10.4.11
  • Xcode: version 2.5

I was trying to upgrade rtorrent-devel, which needs libtorrent-devel (among other things). It fails in the build stage with the error:

Error: Target org.macports.build returned: shell command failed (see log for details)

Log file is attached.

I see you are trying to install this on an Intel Mac running Tiger. I suppose Tiger does not contain the posix_memalign function. I know Snow Leopard does.

This Stack Overflow question suggests posix_memalign may not even be needed on the Mac (though Apple did add it to Mac OS X some time after Tiger, so it must serve some purpose...)

Looks like this has been known upstream for a while: http://libtorrent.rakshasa.no/ticket/2086

Especially since this appears not to be an issue in the latest version of Mac OS X, I don't plan to implement a fix in this port. Your best bet if you can't upgrade would be to get upstream to integrate the patches from the above ticket, or else apply them manually.

So I used the patch you suggested for libtorrent-devel, but it didn't work either. (Log file is attached.) The thing is, the patch was for a previous version of libtorrent, not the one that just came out at the end of October, 2010, so that might be the reason why it fails also...

I fixed the posix_memalign issue in r85232, but it still fails to build on 10.5.

comment:10 Changed 9 years ago by jmroot (Joshua Root)

OK, turns out it was just telling me that I forgot to cast the return value, in inimitable C++ style. Fixed in r85233.

The other error about __sync_add_and_fetch appears to be because libtorrent requires gcc 4.2.

comment:11 Changed 9 years ago by jmroot (Joshua Root)

Using gcc-4.2 as of r85240, but there are still STL issues that cause the build to fail, probably because Leopard's libstdc++ and STL headers are derived from gcc 4.0.

comment:12 Changed 9 years ago by jmroot (Joshua Root)

Making the current libtorrent source compatible with the old STL would probably be a major undertaking, so the easiest way to fix this might be to add a libstdcxx port. Apple's sources are at http://opensource.apple.com/source/libstdcxx/.

confirmed.

  • GNU GCC 4.6.2
  • make posix_memalign() optional.
  • compile-able and works.

for PPC Homebrew user, there are patched formulas and gcc.rb on github.com

comment:19 Changed 2 years ago by kencu (Ken)

this is the only remaining libtorrent / rtorrent ticket at the moment. these ports now build as c++11. I'll see if there is any chance of getting them to built on 10.4 / 10.5 with gcc6 or gcc7.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
