fg-from-scratch - TerraGear+Windows

Postby xDraconian » Wed Jun 20, 2018 2:26 am

I'd like the announce the availability of fg-from-scratch.

The scope of this release is targeted toward building the TerraGear tools for Windows.
If you are a Windows scenery developer that has struggled to get a working copy of TerraGear then I invite you to try out this new approach.

As suggested by the name, fg-from-scratch builds everything you need to get a working build of TerraGear. This includes TerraGear itself and ALL of its dependencies (there are many.)

WARNING: This consumes a lot of hard drive space (~18GB) Once you have successfully built TerraGear, you can clean up and reclaim as much of this space as you need.

A new version of fg-from-scratch is available.

Change log:

Removed prompts from command script
Environment variables are no longer necessary. The script now forces x64-windows builds by default.

fg-from-scratch is moving into fgmeta.
My personal repro will no longer be maintained.

I had an error while running the script:

I think the script just silently failed and continued: these packages were left un-installed:

    plib[core]:x64-windows
    sdl2[core]:x64-windows
    tiff[core]:x64-windows
    zlib[core]:x64-windows


or at least I'd assume so given the lack of asterisk.

I searched for tiff (the last supposedly not installed one) in the log: it said: (... showing intermediate code)

Code: Select all
-- searching TIFF -->tiff.h<-->libtiff;tiff<-->C:/Users/redpa/Documents/FlightGear/flightgear-fgmeta/fg-from-scratch/vcpkg-git/installed/x64-windows<--
-- Warning Debug TIFF not found, using: C:/Users/redpa/Documents/FlightGear/flightgear-fgmeta/fg-from-scratch/vcpkg-git/installed/x64-windows/lib/tiff.lib
...
...
...
-- Found TIFF: C:/Users/redpa/Documents/FlightGear/flightgear-fgmeta/fg-from-scratch/vcpkg-git/installed/x64-windows/lib/tiff.lib 
...
...
...
CMake does not need to re-run because C:/Users/redpa/Documents/FlightGear/flightgear-fgmeta/fg-from-scratch/openscenegraph-3.4-build/src/osgPlugins/tiff/CMakeFiles/generate.stamp is up-to-date.

Do I proceed and assume everything is ok? It seems it did find the missing ones?

I figured out it was building OSG, SG, and FG - not just TG, so I removed the first three and reran the code - looks like it is rebuilding those that it missed due to the error.

You can run fg-from-scratch multiple times. It will attempt to compile those things that it finding missing.
When you run it a second time, it will automatically upgrade packages that already exist when a newer version is available.

Good luck with it.

Looks like it built successfully! Thanks for the script :)


For future reference, OSG and SG are required for TG building - FG is not.

@legoboyvdlp

Thanks for the feedback. The original version did not include FG, but it was part of the roadmap to include it and was later added to the script. That is why I went with the fg-from-scratch name instead of tg-from-scratch.
Congratulations on getting it working.

I'm trying to prepare my computer with the dependencies needed for fg-from-scratch. I downloaded QT per the automatic detection of OS, which led to Windows 64-bit (qt-unified-windows-x86-3.06-online.exe). It installed to c:\qt, not c:\qt\qt5 as described in the readme for fg-from-scratch. How do I accommodate this difference? Do I simply create a subfolder "qt5" and move the folder "cmake-3.13.2-win64-x64" from "c:\qt" to "c:\qt\qt5\"? Or have I grabbed the wrong qt version? (I've never used QT before). Or change the statement in the script from "SET QT5x64=C:/Qt/Qt5/5.10.1/msvc2017_64" to "ET QT5x64=C:/Qt/5.10.1/msvc2017_64"?
Also, I read that setting the environment variables is no longer required but the readme for fg-from-scratch indicates they should be. Which is the case?
Thank you.

@pb321, Simply modify your script to reflect where your Qt is installed.
The current version of fg-from-scratch already reflects this change (SET QT5x64=C:/Qt/5.10.1/msvc2017_64). Double-check that you have the most recent version from fgmeta.

The next version of fg-from-scratch will automatically determine the Qt install location via (qtpaths --install-prefix), but this is not released yet.

The fg-from-scratch script leverages it to help ensure the proper Qt version is found - think of it as a hint. Without the variable, whether Qt is found correctly depends on how many Qt versions you have installed.

Thank you, @xDraconian! I inadvertantly used an older version and will find the latest. I'll include the environment variables.

What should be my next step?

Did you check the variables at the top of fg-from-scratch.cmd? I think one of them might be the cmake toolchain path? Maybe I'm wrong...

I think you're right, @legoboyvdlp. But I'm not sure how to change it, as it says:
SET CMAKE_TOOLCHAIN="Visual Studio 15 2017 Win64"

Do you think it should be changed to the path to the CMAKE folder? Guess I'll give that a try.
