Building Ruby 1.8.2 on HP-UX 10.20

I get the following error:

Stop.

I can “fix it” changing -Ae for -Aa, but when the building process
runs miniruby to run every extconf.rb, it breaks in lib/mkmf.rb saying
a block was not given to checking_for (when checking for the existence
of windows.h), which is non sense.

Any idea?


#2

I get the following error:

-----------8<-------------

Is the stdio.h in error itself, or did Ruby override something it
shouldn’t
have?

Does it go away with 1.8.3 or 1.8.4-preview1 ?

And probably most important, is vsnprintf missing on hpux 10? if not,
why
does ./configure seem to think so?

I have not seen this problem with 1.8.1 or 1.8.4-preview1 on HP-UX 11
(though comforting, that may be of very little help to you)

Bye,
Kero.

Thanks Kero

2005/11/20, Kero removed_email_address@domain.invalid:

have?
missing/vsnprintf.c defines some macros like clearerr and ferror,
which are already declared as functions in stdio.h. Although
vsnprintf.c is not including stdio.h, it seems like cpp includes it
after preprocessing vsnprintf.c and then I get those errors
(“Redefinition of macro clearerr” because stdio.h is declaring it as a
function, after being defined as a macro in vsnprintf.c, etc)

I’m new at HP-UX, I’m missing something important for sure. Changing
the flag -Ae for -Aa “solves” the problem for vsnprintf.c. But then I
get other errors when running miniruby.

Does it go away with 1.8.3 or 1.8.4-preview1 ?

I’ll try with 1.8.4-preview1 and see

And probably most important, is vsnprintf missing on hpux 10? if not, why
does ./configure seem to think so?

Yes, it is missing.

I have not seen this problem with 1.8.1 or 1.8.4-preview1 on HP-UX 11
(though comforting, that may be of very little help to you)

HP-UX 11 already has vsnprintf AFAIK.

I have just found this:

http://www.ruby-lang.org/ja/install.cgi?cmd=view;name=HP-UX

It explains how to solve some problems I ran into. It says something
about vsnprintf and a patch for HP-UX, but I can’t read Japanese :frowning:
Does any caritative soul want to help me? (from the line starting with
“missing/vsnprintf.c”, almost at the end of the file)

Thanks in advance

(Kero: I tried 1.8.3 and it was the same)

I manually applied the patch to ruby-1.8.3/missing/vsnprintf.c and it
seems that fixed something, but I got new errors:
