Makes sense if you aren't building assimp using the bundled libraries with polycode.
Archlinux libs are too bleeding edge for sure.

Thanks for the response.

FYI, as a test, I downloaded the source ZIP file and tried to build it following their instructions using cmake. It failed with errors from the bullet library about the new C++11 -Wnarrowing addition flagging a bunch of int-to-char conversions.

Looks like assimp has a different URL now, maybe this was fixed on the git repository but not in the 0.8.4 version

Has anyone gotten this to build lately? It first had ninja errors with the assimp dependency, and I found a lot of "rule files" were missing -- like assimp-configure, assimp-install, etc. I added these and it built all the way through 111 steps, but then fails with:

ninja: build stopped: subcommand failed.

I have successfully built the package on a fresh up to date Arch Linux install as well. Thanks for replying.

Hi Zatherz,

Glad you had a look into it, some answers:

Everything is configurable using cmake, so doesn't make much difference using unix makefiles or ninja.

I use ninja because is waaaaaay faster than make.

Just tested the build in a base archilinux image using Docker, and it builds fine.

Be sure you have enough space in your tmp folder, polycode can use quite some space during the build process.

Cheers

Building fails.

Edit: Upon closer inspection, Box2D seems to be missing a Ninja build file.
Edit 2: Now that I look into it even closer, why would you use Ninja when the build system supports Unix Makefiles?
Edit 3: Problem seems to be with how it links to X11:
/usr/bin/ld: ../../Core/Contents/libPolycore_d.a(PolySDLCore.cpp.o): undefined reference to symbol 'XCreateFontCursor'
/usr/lib/libX11.so.6: error adding symbols: DSO missing from command line
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status

Ninja build files were folder dependent, so now instead of patching I'm using sed.

Should be fine now.
