Can't build haiku from latest source on

Cannot build haiku from latest source code on git, with RHEL 6.5 (Redhat Enterprise) with proper build dependencies:

mkdir ~/Downloads/HAIKU cd ~/Downloads/HAIKU

git clone git clone

then cd buidltools cd jam make ./jam0 install

then cd ../haiku make generated.x86gcc2 cd generated.x86gcc2 ../configure --use-xattr-ref --build-cross-tools x86_gcc2 ../../buildtools --build-cross-tools x86 --use-gcc-pipe -j4

then jam -q @nightly-cd > /dev/null

/root/Downloads/HAIKU/haiku/src/kits/package/FetchFileJob.cpp: In member function ‘virtual status_t BPackageKit::BPrivate::FetchFileJob::Execute()’: /root/Downloads/HAIKU/haiku/src/kits/package/FetchFileJob.cpp:95: error: ‘CURLOPT_XFERINFOFUNCTION’ was not declared in this scope

So there seems to be some missing deps.

You need to update your libcurl-dev package, as noted in

Would it be possible to use Service Kit in Package Kit instead of curl? Are we missing something?

comment:3 by axeld, 4 years ago

libcurl is needed to build on the host. Since the Services Kit builds on top of our Network Kit, it would all have to be ported to Linux to be able to use it there. Not sure if it's worth it, just to lose a dependency.

Since commenting the three lines which reference that option let the build work correctly, couldn't we use that option conditionally ? Depending on the libcurl version, maybe.

Apparently it is used only to monitor download progress and show the progress bar, so yes, it could be disabled if not available.

Something like this may work, too:

This patch allows building on RedHat Enterprise / CentOS 7, without upgrading the libcurl library (which can be annoying). I think we should try to support these platforms, especially since the ifdeffed out part only adds "cosmetic" stuff.

Please submit paches on Gerrit: We are not using Trac for patch tracking anymore. The "patch" checkbox is still there until we're done migrating old patches to Gerrit and we can remove the plugin.
