A few days ago, I was happily downloading the latest Haiku Revisions from SVN and building them on my Athlon XP 2000+ BeOS box with abandon. And I was a happy camper.
But that has ceased. Now, when I attempt to build, I get a spew of “Failed…” and “Skipped…” error mesages. This can’t be found and that can’t be compiled… etc. On and on and on it goes, right to the end.
It ends, telling me that it either couldn’t create the “haiku.image” file (if I use “jam haiku-image”) or install to my Haiku partition (if I use “jam install-haiku”).
I have tried deleting the entire trunk directory (gah, that takes forever in BeOS!) and downloaded the entire tree afresh. I have started with a known working revision of Haiku that I built on and it still built fine and downloaded the latest files on top of it. Neither work.
"Failed…" this or "Skipped…" that. Scattered throughout the "Jam session" (as I call it)
The “Jam” that Haiku, Inc. has (or links to) on their site doesn’t work anymore (at least for me), as it quits with some weird error message before it finishes the build. I downloaded the only other “newer” Jam I coulds find (has “2005” in the filename) and that has worked find til the last few days.
It appears that they (Haiku, Inc.), themselves, are having build problems, as shown in their Build Factory "Jam log". So this appears to not be an isolated incident.
Yet, people like Sikosis and Jon have the near-to-latest revisions of Haiku available for download. What is up with that? They can build, but I can’t?
If anyone can offer any insight to this situation, I’d be greatly appreciative.
I am running BeOS R5 PE (WIND distro) on an Athlon XP 2000+ with 512Mb of DDR SDRAM, a GeForce3 Ti500 video card (Asus V8200/T5), built-in audio, 30Gb Maxtor HD, 3Com Ethernet card, etc.
If that helps.
Does anyone have the very, VERY, V E R Y most recent build of JAM? What is the version GCC I’m supposed to be using (assuming anything has changed in that last couple weeks that could cause this problem)?
Could something be corrupted in BeOS? Should I reinstall BeOS R5 PE and start over fresh?
Is my Jam too old (ewww, mold! (grin))?
Is my GCC (that whole "routine" I have to go through, to set up everything correctly in BeOS (change c++ to c++.old and this file to that name and create a link to that folder, etc.) munged up?
There simply MUST be a logical explanation! And I wanna know what it is!
