Compiling ogreode on linux?

Post by Grey »

So, Since the dump the topic regarding compiling ogreode on linux seems to have been lost, so I'll ask again:

Any tips on getting ogreode to compile on linux? I've seen a few "edit this here, change that there" posts before, (which are lost now) and there were some patches/makefiles floating around? pretty please anyone with a decent patch/makefile/source tree that will compilie without too much headache on linux, post it here, since last time the links were dead by time I got here, I'll mirror them, once on my server, once on a friends, (next week, he's getting a new mobo)

This is how I got it to work:
1. Download Monsters OgreOde 1.00 Final , rastaman's makefiles from: ... downloads/
2. Follow the steps in $ODE_TOP/OgreOde_OGRE.txt
3. Extract OgreOde 1.00 in the same directory as ogrenew and rename to ogreode. Extract rastaman's makefile from the directory above ogreode and rename back to OgreOde
4.. Edit /ode-0.5/ode/src/dTerrainCallback.cpp and replace
//#include "windows.h"
//#include "ode\ode.h"
#include "ode/ode.h"
5. Compile ode
edit $ODE_TOP/ode-0.5/config/user-settings and set
cd $ODE_TOP/ode-0.5 ; make ; cp $ODE_TOP/ode-0.5/lib/libode.a /usr/local/lib ; ldconfig
6. Edit the following files:
- $ODE_TOP/prefab/src/ and add line OgreOdeRagdoll.cpp \
- $ODE_TOP/prefab/src/OgreOdeVehicle.cpp
Quaternion wheel_rot = Quaternion(Radian(getSteer()),wheel_up);
//Quaternion wheel_rot = Quaternion(Radian(getSteer()),wheel_up);

- $ODE_TOP/ogreode/prefab/src/OgreOdeRagdoll.cpp
//Ragdoll::Ragdoll(const String& name, const String& mesh, SceneManager* creator):
// Entity(name,MeshManager::getSingleton().load(mesh,ResourceGroupManager::DEFAULT_RESOURCE_GROUP_NAME),creator),
// PrefabObject(OgreOde_Prefab::ObjectType_Ragdoll)
Ragdoll::Ragdoll(const String& name, MeshPtr& ptr, SceneManager* creator):Entity(name,ptr,creator),

- $ODE_TOP/ogreode/prefab/include/OgreOdeRagdoll.h
//Ragdoll::Collapse _collapse;
Collapse _collapse;
//Ragdoll(const String& name, const String& mesh, SceneManager* creator);
Ragdoll(const String& name, MeshPtr& ptr, SceneManager* creator);

- $ODE_TOP/demos/SimpleScenes/include/SimpleScenes_Zombie.h
//_zombie_ragdoll = new OgreOde_Prefab::Ragdoll("zombie" + StringConverter::toString(_zombie_count),"zombie_small.mesh",_mgr);
MeshPtr ptr = MeshManager::getSingleton().load("zombie_small.mesh",ResourceGroupManager::DEFAULT_RESOURCE_GROUP_NAME);
_zombie_ragdoll = new OgreOde_Prefab::Ragdoll("zombie" + StringConverter::toString(_zombie_count),ptr,_mgr);

6. From $ODE_TOP
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig
./bootstrap ; ./configure ; make ; make install (as root)

I've updated the download to hopefully fix these things and also add some Linux stuff (thanks Pablo) tha should make it easier to build. See the README in scripts/Linux for details.

I made a few updates to the script, I had some problems figuring out what was happening where, so I added some lines to let the user know what's up, I also made it check for the existance of ode-0.5.tgz before continuing to delete and reinstall/patch the ode directory, finally, I changed the order of a few things in there, so it will patch Ogre, then build and install it, then build and install OgreOde, rather than patch Ogre, then try to build OgreOde before rebuilding Ogre.

I dunno if it'll help anyone, and I'd appreciate feedback, so I'll post a link here,
just download OgreOde-1.0.1 from Monster's site, and extract it all as usual, then copy to ogrenew/OgreOde/scripts/Linux/ and run it from there.

you can get it here:

Also, uhh... make a backup of the original first, in case mine bombs out terribly, finally, THANK YOU PABLO, I'm assuming it was you who made those .diff files? They are awesome, and saved me a ton of headache.

Yes, I made the diffs, but the real automake work was from... mm I forgot!
my was just a quick'n'dirty way of building ogreode (everything in order, building as root...), but yours seems much better.
thanks for sharing!

Following the instructions exactly and using the included in the archive, it bombs out when compiling the ogreode demos (ODE seems to compile fine):

Code: Select all

g++ -g -O2 -DGCC_3_1 -DEXT_HASH -I/usr/local/include/OGRE -o .libs/SimpleScenes SimpleScenes-SimpleScenesApplication.o SimpleScenes-SimpleScenes.o SimpleScenes-tinystr.o SimpleScenes-tinyxml.o SimpleScenes-tinyxmlerror.o SimpleScenes-tinyxmlparser.o  -L/usr/local/lib -L/home/gene/Projects/ogrenew/OgreOde_1-0-1/src -L/home/gene/Projects/ogrenew/OgreOde_1-0-1/prefab/src /usr/local/lib/ /home/gene/Projects/ogrenew/OgreOde_1-0-1/src/.libs/ /home/gene/Projects/ogrenew/OgreOde_1-0-1/prefab/src/.libs/ -Wl,--rpath -Wl,/usr/local/lib

Any idea why this is happening?
