Description

Why would a failure to find a standard library file like WtApplication, used in an app, occur during a build?

cmake ..

Wt has been built and I checked the server to see that the file is present.

You should run 'make install' in your Wt directory, which will install Wt to /usr/local/ (you can change this by setting CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX to somewhere else). You cannot simply build against a Wt source directory, that setup is complex.

Then in your own CMakeLists.txt, add the following:

INCLUDE_DIRECTORIES(/usr/local/include)

Adapt the path if you changed CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX to something else. You'll likely also have to specify the link path so that wt finds the libraries:

LINK_DIRECTORIES(/usr/local/lib)

When you say "in your Wt directory" you mean the src directory, right? Like this?

cd /usr/local/src
wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/witty/wt/3.2.1/wt-3.2.1.tar.gz
tar zxvf wt-3.2.1.tar.gz
cd /usr/local/src/wt-3.2.1/
cmake ../
make && make install

It this article you recommend creating a build folder

http://www.webtoolkit.eu:3080/wt/doc/reference/html/InstallationUnix.html

, like the following, which is what I have done.

mkdir build
cd build
cmake -Wno-dev -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release  -DUSERLIB_ROOT=/usr/lib64 -DSSL_PREFIX=/usr/lib64/openssl -DRUNDIR=/var/www/approot -DWEBUSER=apache -DWEBGROUP=apache -DCONNECTOR_FCGI=ON ../
make && make install

But my dependencies aren't found, aside from Boost. Not even openssl which was installed by yum in /usr/lib64/openssl

Again, libfcgi is in the USERLIB_ROOT:

[root@st wt-3.2.1]# find / -name "*libfcgi*" -type f
/usr/lib64/libfcgi++.so.0.0.0
/usr/lib64/libfcgi.so.0.0.0
[root@st wt-3.2.1]#

But cmake fails because it can't be found. So, for this rebuild, we don't have problems finding Wt/WtApplication, etc.; but there is still the issue of finding dependencies.

And Wt is still not installed in /usr/local as it should, even though the header files are there within /usr/include

I can't see what I'm doing wrong here.

Hey,

PREFIX and ROOT are typically '/', /usr, /usr/local, i.e. the directory that contains lib/ and include/ folders.

Regards,

Koen:

Thanks, but I don't understand this latest reply.

...I still cannot resolve this build error, as detailed above.

/bin/ld: cannot find -lwtfcgi

Ok, I see. A rebuild after changing to USERLIB_ROOT=/usr/local removed that error for finding -lwtfcgi

But now rebuild of the test app gives different errors which were not present earlier:

You need to add the boost library that contains the missing symbols to your link command, in this case it's boost_filesystem.

#7

Updated by Bud T almost 9 years ago

I've added this line to my CMakeLists.txt

SET( BOOST_LIBS boost_filesystem boost_system boost_signals boost_regex boost_thread boost_random boost_date_time boost_program_options )

The errors persist:

Linking CXX executable app.wt
/usr/local/lib/libwt.so: undefined reference to `boost::filesystem::detail::dir_itr_close(void*&, void*&)'
/usr/local/lib/libwt.so: undefined reference to `boost::filesystem::path::filename() const'
...

Help!! I need this to go away pronto. Thanks.

It is also necessary to include these BOOST_LIBS in the set of TARGET_LINK_LIBRARIES(). Problem solved. Thanks.
