building terminated because of errors

Asked by Ivanov

It is the last section in scons output:

Well, you could start by telling what you're trying to build and where (OS and distribution version).

You might be missing the necessary headers for iconv parameter detection to work correctly or there's some other problem in the build script, but that's impossible to say since no OS info was given.

I have Ubuntu 8.10 cernel 2.6.27-16-generic.
I downloaded file linuxdcpp-1.0.3.tar.bz2 from site
I unfold it in my home directory.
Following readme file installed scons and installed other packets, which scons told.
But I don't know what to do now.

Firstly, if you upgrade ubuntu to 9.10 you can install linuxdcpp 1.0.3 directly from apt. If you don't want to/unable to upgrade then you can try using the compile from source directions at:

In particular:

sudo apt-get install scons build-essential libgtk2.0-dev libglade2-dev zlib1g-dev libbz2-dev libssl-dev libboost-dev

I perform apt-get install.
All but libboost-dev were in place.
But nothing changed.

I have found two files iconv.h on my system one in /usr/include and one in /usr/local/include. And one in /usr/local/lib.
Is it right?

Steven Sheehy (steven-sheehy) said :

Sounds like you have conflicting iconvs on your system. iconv should come with glibc, so not sure why you have a separate libiconv in /usr/local. I would suggest removing the lib and header file in /usr/local and see if it works.

I remove all iconv.h files but scons still report:
Checking for C header file iconv.h... (cached) yes
Checking for iconv(0, (const char **)0, 0, (char**)0, 0) in C library iconv... (cached) yes

Scons may be caching the previous results. Delete the build dir:

rm -rf <linuxdcpp_dir>/build

Without libiconv I managed to build linuxdcpp but in SConstruct I read:

 if not conf.CheckHeader('iconv.h'):
 elif conf.CheckLibWithHeader('iconv', 'iconv.h', 'c', 'iconv(0, (const char **)0, 0, (char**)0, 0);'):
  conf.env['ICONV_CONST'] = 'const'

it seems that developers thinked about using libiconv
