Thread: Compiling Google Gadgets on OS12

    Default Compiling Google Gadgets on OS12

    Has anyone managed to compile GG from source, on OS 12?

    This is an allegedly dead project but I would still like to compile and run it.

    I'm referring to the source code from here:

    google-gadgets-for-linux - An open-source implementation of Google Gadgets platform for Linux. - Google Project Hosting

    When making, having loaded all dependencies I get an error in ../third_party/unzip/unzip.c with the libunzip library.

    In particular:

    Code:
     gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I../../../third_party/unzip -I../.. -I/usr/include -D__STDC_CONSTANT_MACROS -DNDEBUG -DGGL_MODULE_DIR=\"/usr/lib64/google-gadgets/modules\" -DGGL_INCLUDE_DIR=\"/usr/include/google-gadgets\" -DGGL_SYSDEPS_INCLUDE_DIR=\"/usr/lib64/google-gadgets/include\" -DGGL_LIBEXEC_DIR=\"/usr/lib64/google-gadgets\" -DGGL_RESOURCE_DIR=\"/usr/share/google-gadgets\" -DGGL_HOST_LINUX=1 -DGGL_LITTLE_ENDIAN -DHAVE_PTHREAD=1 -DHAVE_X11=1 -DHAVE_DBUS_LIBRARY -DHAVE_DBUS_WATCH_GET_UNIX_FD -DHAVE_RSVG_LIBRARY -DHAVE_NETWORK_MANAGER -DHAVE_NEW_NETWORK_MANAGER_API -DHAVE_MKDTEMP -DHAVE_MMAP "-DGGL_DIST_INFO=\"linux-x86_64 (openSUSE 12.2 (x86_64)) (-)\"" -DGGL_DEFAULT_GST_AUDIO_SINK=\"autoaudiosink\" -DGGL_DEFAULT_BROWSER_PLUGINS_DIR=\"/usr/lib64/browser-plugins\" -DGGL_ENABLE_XDGMIME -DGGL_GTK_HTML_SCRIPT_ENGINE=\"xulrunner\" -DGGL_GTK_XML_HTTP_REQUEST=\"curl\" -DGGL_QT_SCRIPT_ENGINE=\"qt\" -O2 -Wall -fstack-protector -Werror -MT libunzip_la-unzip.lo -MD -MP -MF .deps/libunzip_la-unzip.Tpo -c ../../../third_party/unzip/unzip.c  -fPIC -DPIC -o .libs/libunzip_la-unzip.o

    Hi
    Rebuild this src rpm?
    ftp://ftp.icm.edu.pl/vol/rzm2/linux-....2-7.4.src.rpm

    They disable the error in the configure....

    Thanks. I've tried this source and it still doesn't compile I'm afraid.
    It's not an error in configure but in the C/source compilation:

    Code:
    ../../../third_party/unzip/zip.c:884:28: error: assignment from incompatible pointer type [-Werror]
    cc1: all warnings being treated as errors
    make[3]: *** [libunzip_la-zip.lo] Error 1
    Same error as before.

    That's not necessarily a code problem, that's a config problem in the
    makefile. Try disabling the -Werror switch (I think that's the one
    that's making all warnings be treated as errors).

    Thanks, I've removed the
    Code:
    -Werror
    switch from the
    Code:
    DEFAULT_COMPILE_FLAGS
    in the Makefile. I still get the error during compilation.
    Is there another switch I should pass to
    Code:
    make
    ?

    Can you show the specific output you now get? That switch should have
    changed the output IIRC, so you should have gotten a different error (or
    at least different output).

    Incompatible pointers are not supposed to be fatal - because a pointer is
    just a reference to a memory address, and the data types may not be
    exactly what is declared, but usually it doesn't cause a problem.

    This is the error I'm getting now:

    Same pointer error I believe.

    Hi
    Add the --disable-werror to the configure flags...
    Code:
    ../configure --disable-werror --disable-static
    Then you will need to work on gcc4.7 porting and glib.h errors....
    https://launchpad.net/~createsc/+arc...-archive-extra
    Grab the google-gadgets_0.11.2-6~quantal1202~3beol.debian.tar.xz
    file....

    Yep, and same cause - the warning is being treated as an error. Malcolm's
    solution should solve it.

    Right thanks.

    As suggested, using this source:

    https://launchpad.net/~createsc/+arc....debian.tar.xz

    from

    https://launchpad.net/~createsc/+arc...-archive-extra

    I patched three files prior to Configuring. These were gcc-4.7.diff, glib_includes.diff and nm09.patch in the source dirs using the /debian/patch dir.


    Had to run Configure with these arguments:

    $ ../configure --prefix=/usr --libdir=/usr/lib64 --with-browser-plugins-dir=/usr/lib64/browser-plugins --disable-werror --disable-static
    So it's working on OS12 now. Thanks a bunch.

    But one further thing, there are only a handful of weak/poor gadgets included. Is this because the project is no longer active? What I'm trying to ask is, did Google originally distribute all gadgets or am I supposed to get/copy add-ons from elsewhere?
