Using nginx 1.1 with the intel compiler

Not sure what I’m doing wrong here…

Try looking into objs/autoconf.err, it will have exact reason for
the “not found” verdict. Most likely it fails to compile code for
some reason, the autoconf.err file should have details.

I’m guessing its similar to the openssl compile, which I used

[[email protected]:trunk/objs]# locate sys/types.h

Not sure how to pass to nginx to use, (this fails)

It looks like you somehow persuaded nginx that your compiler is
gcc, and it uses command line arguments appropiate for gcc instead
of ones for icc. See auto/cc/icc for a long list of warnings which
should be ignored with icc.

Maxim D.

Though it actually compiles to a point then errors… (ignoring the
-Wunused-value warnings)

Could you please show “icc -v” and “icc -V” output?

[…]

Note: this is not original nginx code. There is no “(bool)”
cast in nginx here, just plain assignment.

With original code you’ll get “error #188: enumerated type mixed
with another type” as in your previous message, and this warning
is expected to be disabled with icc, see auto/cc/icc:

enumerated type mixed with another type

CFLAGS="$CFLAGS -wd188"

It looks like newer icc pretend to be compatible with gcc
somewhere in “icc -v” output, and nginx incorrectly mishandles it
as gcc as a result.

Something like this should help:

Alternatively, you may set CFLAGS in the environment yourself,
this will prevent nginx from setting them by it’s own. Something
like

CFLAGS="-W -g" ./configure

should work.

But when it comes to compiling it uses icc (as above), the machine
does have gcc-4.6 installed also

I didn’t see any error messages in auto/cc/icc, I did noticed it

We don’t generally use icc, though occasionally check compilation
if found one available. There were no tests with 12.x yet, though
it’s likely will be ok once correctly detected.

Maxim D.

Generally speaking, we (nginx team) will be grateful for an access to a
host with Intel compiler suit (Intel Parallel Studio XE or Composer
XE) with an appropriate license there.

Or perhaps someone has a right contact in Intel to talk about that.

You’re free to download/install the icc, Installs /opt/intel by default.

http://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/intel-software-evaluation-center/

But looking at the suggested patch, it looks safe? just changing the
order?

Okay, it managed to compile with your suggested patch, its safe to
push into trunk :slight_smile:

nginx-dev+openssl-dev compiled under icc and working

Yep, icc is free to download.

Intel’s license FAQ clearly states that non-commercial version
can’t be used even for free open-source products if one provide
paid technical support:

http://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/non-commercial-software-faq/#13

That is, we can’t use it.
