Notes from installing Haxe on freebsd.

Installation

Installing haxe 3.2.0 from git because the .zip package did not work.

git clone --recursive git://github.com/HaxeFoundation/haxe.git
error

Error caused by ocaml not existing. Solution: pkg install ocaml

make[1]: exec(ocamlopt) failed (No such file or directory)
error

Another missing dependency.

camlp4o: not found
File "parser.ml", line 1:
Error: Error while running external preprocessor
Command line: camlp4o 'parser.ml' > /tmp/ocamlppb3e07a

Solution: sudo pkg install ocaml-camlp4

error

Error caused by /usr/include/sys not being in the include path.

fatal error: 'wait.h' file not found

Setting environment variables did not work. I'm not sure if this is because the compiler isn't gcc or if the shell is not handing off envvars to children.

set C_INCLUDE_PATH=/usr/include/sys/ 
set CFLAGS="-I /usr/include/sys"

I tweaked the filesystem instead.

/usr/include% sudo ln -s sys/wait.h wait.h

installing neko

error

post-install

% haxelib
/usr/local/lib/haxe/std/neko/_std/sys/io/FileInput.hx:60: characters 26-29 : Invalid package : std should be <empty>

caused by a lack of neko. Nothing on the haxe webpage said that neko was still a separate package. Everything implied that it came with haxe now. Such as the existence of lib/neko and nekotools in the source. Neko is downloadable from http://nekovm.org

neko requires libgc-dev, not in packages. link to home page is 404ed. libgc created by Hans Boehm, new page at: http://hboehm.info/gc/index.html configure, make, install, seems fine.

error

nekovm will not build:

vm/alloc.c:45:10: fatal error: 'gc/gc.h' file not found

It is looking in a local path. Workaround:

sudo ln -s /usr/local/include/gc gc
warning

Common warning in macro expansions:

vm/interp.c:892:3: warning: incompatible integer to pointer conversion passing 'int_val'
      (aka 'long') to parameter of type 'const void *' [-Wint-conversion]
error

Linker crashes.

-ldl is included in freebsd's libc. removing it from the line.
error

Next error:

/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lgc

I JUST INSTALLED IT. libgc.a, libgc.la, and libgc.so are in /usr/local/lib

used a hard-coded path to libgc.a

error
/usr/bin/ld: /usr/local/lib/libgc.a(alloc.o): relocation R_X86_64_32 against `a local symbol' can not be used when making a shared object; recompile with -fPIC /usr/local/lib/libgc.a: could not read symbols: Bad value

used a hard-coded path to libgc.so instead. that worked.

why?

edited linkoptions in src/tools/install.neko and changed -pthread to -lpthread. That worked.

error

whaat the fuck is this?

(facepalm)

error

does haxelib work yet? No! Same error. [Note: this may refer to an earlier note that was lost as these notes were revised.]

Invalid package : std should be 

STUPIDEST ERROR

My current working directory was still inside the cloned Haxe repo, so there was a folder called "std" in my current directory, containing the standard library, which triggers the error.

lime

installed the lime library through haxelib. it did not install the lime command. From irc, lime is just haxelib run lime

error

could not find the demos. maybe the demos are in a separate package like lime-demos? [it's lime-samples]

"haxelib search lime" is like a fork bomb creating several haxe processes each hogging 100% cpu and 50MB

probably related to a name match with something in the lime directory where I was running haxelib. From another directory it works fine.

error

after installing lime-samples, lime create still cannot find the HelloWorld package. [Edit: it works now]

Copied all of the sample packages to a different working directory.

error
lime-samples/HelloWorld% lime test flash
--macro:1: character 0 : You cannot access the flash package while targeting neko (for flash.xml.XMLList)
error
% lime -swf test 
Error: Multiple targets

commented out the -neko line in the run.hxml file

Error: Multiple targets
/usr/local/lib/haxe/lib/lime/2,4,7/tools/RunScript.hx:6: characters 7-18 : You cannot access the sys package while targeting flash (for sys.io.File)

[Note: This was resolved in a later version.]

error

missing command: haxelib run lime setup

the command fork bombs in two places. created a new empty directory to run it in. It fork bombs. Moved the lib directory. It still fork bombs.

Makefile changes needed to get ocamlc to take the -g option

  • change all "make" to gmake
  • change ocamlc to "ocamlc -g" with quotes

still no debugging symbols
