• Compiling Synchronet Linux

    From Mark Da Silva@1:229/550 to All on Saturday, September 03, 2022 23:05:07
    Hi,

    I am trying compile SBBS on Opensuse Tumbleweed. I have the required libraries installed. All goes well till this happens.

    make[2]: Entering directory '/sbbs/repo/src/conio'Compiling ciolib.cciolib.c: In function `try_curses_init':ciolib.c:290:20: error: lvalue required as unary `&' operand 290 | #endif | ^make[2]: *** [../build/Common.gmake:465: gcc.linux.x64.obj.release-mt/ciolib.o] Error 1make[2]: Leaving directory '/sbbs/repo/src/conio'make[1]: *** [/sbbs/repo/src/sbbs3/../build/Common.gmake:512: ciolib-mt] Error 2make[1]: Leaving directory '/sbbs/repo/src/sbbs3'make: *** [GNUmakefile:152: sbbs3] Error 2sbbs@DELL-E6430:/sbbs>

    I am doing this as a user called sbbs. Any help would be great.

    My semi-educated guess is that you don't have the proper 'ncursesw'
    package installed (whatever it's called in opensuse). It's important
    that you use a package with the 'w' on the end, not just an 'ncurses'
    package.

    Yeah, I think I was missing some ncurses stuff. Been compiling for awhile now. we'll see how it goes. Thanks for the help.

    Yes, I have it running as a systemd service on my linux system. I have to still configure it for use but it is working.

    Thank You All.

    That's the nice thing about revision control systems (e.g. git), you
    don't have to - it'll automatically merge your local changes with the upstream changes (so long as they don't conflict).

    That is nice.
