problem installing from gzipped source using autoproj

I try to install the toolchain on 64-bit Archlinux from the gzipped source. I have ruby installed, and also zlib 1.2.5. After entering "autoproj build" I enter ruby or none, as I prefer to install osdeps myself. In both cases, the system aborts; last report is as follows:

autoproj: installing autoproj and its dependencies (this can take a long time)
failed: there is an osdeps definition for zlib, but not for this operating system

How to deal with this? Help appreciated.

Thanks, Theo.

There's no dependency on libantlr_pic per se.

There *is* a dependency on libantlr built with PIC, which is (on debian)
provided in libantlr-pic. Now, typelib's cmake code will pick
libantlr-pic if available, and fall back to libantlr otherwise. So, if
on arch libantlr.a is built with PIC, there is no problem whatsoever.

You can't use interactive installs in autoproj. That's why we use -y. On
Debian, it has the effect of failing if non-interactivity is needed (in
which case, the users can install the problematic packages by hand)

I'm not an arch user, but some people that were using at DFKI it wanted
support and told me to use pacman. Now, I need someone to tell me *what
to use*. Not the various available options ;-)

It's nice to see that some people appreciate it ;-)

This looks like an autoproj bootstrapping, but you say you install from
gzipped source (and run only autoproj build). I am confused.

Sorry, my mistake. I try to install from gzipped source, following this page:
[http://www.orocos.org/wiki/orocos/toolchain/quick-start], bottom section.

I indeed get the error after issuing the command "./bootstrap_toolchain", as you expected. I never get to autoproj build.

Ok, I get it how to solve this; needs a small modification of the bootstrap file.
In the same way, autoproj/release/orocos.osdeps needs some modifications.
When I have it running, I will get back with patches.

Cheers, Theo.

Thanks

In principle, changing the orocos.osdeps file should not be needed. If
you don't ask autoproj to install the osdeps, it should not be annoying
you with them.

I'll try to get a test setup running here to fix that bug

Ok, got it installed, but I did need to modify orocos.osdeps and
bootstrap_toolchain. Patched versions attached.
Some remarks:
- gccxml is not in the standard repositories of Arch, but in the AUR
- you depend on libantlr_pic.a which seems to be a debian-specific package.
I added it for Arch to the AUR
- Archlinux recommends to not use pacman -Sy for installing standard
packages, but rather pacman -S. I modified your bootstrap for that
- instead of pacman, you can use yaourt or clyde for installing (i.e.,
(sudo) clyde -S 'package_name'). This has the advantage that it can also be
used to install non-standard packages from AUR, which is of course useful in
this case.

And thanks for the nice autoproj tool!
