cegui : update request to 0.8.7 please

Reported by: programmingkidx Owned by: ryandesign (Ryan Schmidt)

Component: ports Version:
Keywords: Cc:
Port: cegui


I am trying to build CEGUI 0.8.7 on Mac OS 10.8. The newest Xcode (version 5.1.1) uses Clang 5.1. When I try to build CEGUI the GLM header file glm/simd/platform.h is included. This header file stops compiling and displays this error message stating that Clang 6 or higher is needed:

"GLM requires Clang 3.4 / Apple Clang 6.0 or higher"

I have the newest version of glm from MacPorts installed (version

I think a simple solution to this problem is to downgrade glm on Mac OS 10.8 and older.

Why don't you try using a newer compiler? That sounds like it should work.

You would install some version of clang from the MacPorts collection -- try clang-9.0 and if that doesn't build it, use something older and more forgiving like clang-5.0.

You would do this:

sudo port -v install clang-9.0
sudo port -v install cegui configure.compiler=macports-clang-9.0

once you see which compiler works, we can work on fixing the Portfile to reflect that.

MacPorts only currently offers CEGUI version 0.7.9. The program I am trying to build requires version 0.8.x.

Oh, I see what you're up to -- that's quite a different issue then. let me straighten up your ticket issue a bit, and here's something to get you started:

$ port -v installed cegui
The following ports are currently installed:
  cegui @0.8.7_0 (active) platform='darwin 17' archs='x86_64' date='2020-07-18T13:35:51-0700'

it needs a bit of work to figure out all the new configure args with cmake, but it builds easily (on 10.13) and it's a good place to start maybe:

# -*- coding: utf-8; mode: tcl; tab-width: 4; indent-tabs-mode: nil; c-basic-offset: 4 -*- vim:fenc=utf-8:ft=tcl:et:sw=4:ts=4:sts=4

I can never remember if an update request is an "update" ticket or a "request" ticket. no doubt it is in a FAQ someplace, and somebody will change it in a few minutes if I guessed wrong (again).

Duplicate of #60821. I've already got a working cegui port built on my system, I just need to finish it up.

Hi Ryan. Will your port of CEGUI work on Mac OS 10.8 and older?

comment:9 Changed 9 months ago by ryandesign (Ryan Schmidt)

So far I've only tried it on my main machine running 10.13. If it turns out not to work on other systems, we can look into those issue then.

I was able to build CEGUI 0.8.7 on Mac OS 10.8. These are some of the things I had to do to make it work:

  • downgrade glm to
  • add '-L/opt/local/lib' and '-l iconv' to solve missing symbols
  • add the glm folder to the header search path
  • disable the making of tinyxml. This target would fail to build because a missing symbol in the vtable. I couldn't figure out why it was missing.

Note: I used a generated Xcode project file.
