Problems Building on Linux

Hi! I have downloaded the source distribution of open cascade days ago. I have been struggling to get the libraries built since then. My system is a Red-Hat7 Linux. I have the latest glibc and gcc3.0. I was able to figure out that most of my problems originated from some sort of incompatibility between the source code and the libstdc++. I have already tried to make some modification in source files mainly to include the std c++ files instead of the backward compatibility ones (i.e. instead of and so forth). This has solved some problems and I managed to get two packages compiled up til now, but I feel it is not really the right way. In fact may be there is a much easier solution or I may have missed something. I hope somebody can help explainning this for me. On the other side as I tried to modify files and recompile I needed to create my own makefiles to do the work as the sch shell scripts are good only for a straight forward complete build. They will just go through the whole process of compiling all source files everytime with the compiler errors streming through my consol. I think a build system for gnu make should be a good replacement for the scripts. It should be better to use autoconfig and automake but I think it won't be easy with the code structure. Thanks for your patience. Tamer

These sorts of problems should be resolved by downloading the CVS version and using the configure script (much like other Linux software).

Oh if it were only that easy! I have never been able to get ./configure to work with OCC and it appears that others have the same trouble (as is noted elsewhere in this forum).

Use the "adm/Linux/OCC.COMP" script and it should compile. Works for me under RH 7.3.
