Hi everyone !
I am currently a developer for the Societé des arts technologiques in Montreal. We working on open-sourced tools used by several artists and I have suggested to use the nix package manager in order to package our software. I am attempting to add Shmdata, Switcher and Scenic to nixpkgs but I have some trouble with the c++ linker (with Switcher).
I have forked Nixpkgs into our own repositories and I have added Shmdata and Switcher. The CMake process works fine but I have trouble during the compilation :
-- Build files have been written to: /build/switcher/build cmake: enabled parallel building building build flags: -j1 -l1 SHELL=/nix/store/r47p5pzx52m3n34vdgqpk5rvqgm0m24m-bash-4.4-p23/bin/bash Scanning dependencies of target switcher-1.0 [ 1%] Building CXX object switcher/CMakeFiles/switcher-1.0.dir/audio-caps.cpp.o In file included from /nix/store/6qmfmricr58bjivgr16y9sjisakdykag-gcc-7.3.0/include/c++/7.3.0/ext/string_conversions.h:41:0, from /nix/store/6qmfmricr58bjivgr16y9sjisakdykag-gcc-7.3.0/include/c++/7.3.0/bits/basic_string.h:6349, from /nix/store/6qmfmricr58bjivgr16y9sjisakdykag-gcc-7.3.0/include/c++/7.3.0/string:52, from /build/switcher/switcher/./audio-caps.hpp:23, from /build/switcher/switcher/audio-caps.cpp:20: /nix/store/6qmfmricr58bjivgr16y9sjisakdykag-gcc-7.3.0/include/c++/7.3.0/cstdlib:75:15: fatal error: stdlib.h: No such file or directory #include_next <stdlib.h> ^~~~~~~~~~ compilation terminated. make: *** [switcher/CMakeFiles/switcher-1.0.dir/build.make:63: switcher/CMakeFiles/switcher-1.0.dir/audio-caps.cpp.o] Error 1 make: *** [CMakeFiles/Makefile2:155: switcher/CMakeFiles/switcher-1.0.dir/all] Error 2 make: *** [Makefile:163: all] Error 2
I have found some issues about libcstd++ but I don’t know if it is really an issue in my case.
In order to reproduce my issue, you can use my fork of nixpkgs and then just build switcher
nix-build -A switcher.
