geomview on decstation

  • To: software
  • Subject: geomview on decstation
  • From: "John M. Sullivan" <sullivan>

I'm trying to install geomview on a Decstation (5000/200 or 3100)
for my brother, Charlie.

There are lots of warnings from make about targets listed multiple times.
And lots of compilation warnings about things being initialized from
incompatible pointer types, or stuff like that.

(It says for instance
../../../makefiles/Makerules.src:9: target `../../../lib/x11/libcamera.a' given
more than once in the same rule.
geomstream.c:21: warning: initialization from incompatible pointer type

Because the real errors scrolled away too fast to see them, I'm
running make a second time right now.
I'm confused about why it is doing:
    rm -f delete.o delete.c
    ln ../delete.c .
    gcc -I.. -g   -DMACHTYPE='"x11"' -I../../../../../include  -c delete.c
    rm -f copy.o copy.c
    ln ../copy.c .
    gcc -I.. -g   -DMACHTYPE='"x11"' -I../../../../../include  -c copy.c
again in .../Geomview/src/lib/gprim/geom/O.x11
But this is causing no real harm.

The first error is:
    make[5]: Entering directory `/users/riovista/charless/geom/Geomview/src/lib/mg/x11/O.x11'
    rm -f mgx11.o mgx11.c
    ln ../mgx11.c .
    gcc -I.. -g   -DMACHTYPE='"x11"' -I../../../../../include  -c mgx11.c
    In file included from ../mgx11P.h:1,
		     from mgx11.c:2:
    /usr/local/gnu/lib/gcc-lib/mips-dec-ultrix4.2/2.5.8/include/X11/Xlib.h:3958: parse error before `XSizeHints'
    /usr/local/gnu/lib/gcc-lib/mips-dec-ultrix4.2/2.5.8/include/X11/Xlib.h:3971: parse error before `XSizeHints'
    /usr/local/gnu/lib/gcc-lib/mips-dec-ultrix4.2/2.5.8/include/X11/Xlib.h:3981: parse error before `XSizeHints'
    /usr/local/gnu/lib/gcc-lib/mips-dec-ultrix4.2/2.5.8/include/X11/Xlib.h:3990: parse error before `XStandardColormap'

Then the next error is:
    make[4]: Entering directory `/users/riovista/charless/geom/Geomview/src/lib/mib/O.x11'
    rm -f mibload.o mibload.c
    ln ../mibload.c .
    gcc -I.. -O -I/usr/include -I/usr/include/X11 -I/usr/local/include -DMACHTYPE='"x11"' -I../../../../include  -c mibload.c
    In file included from mibload.c:1:
    ../mibload.h:4: Xm/Xm.h: No such file or directory
    ../mibload.h:5: Xm/Text.h: No such file or directory
    ../mibload.h:6: Xm/TextF.h: No such file or directory

Then there are later errors in refcomm:
    In file included from streampool.c:13:
    /usr/local/gnu/lib/gcc-lib/mips-dec-ultrix4.2/2.5.8/include/sys/stat.h:78: parse error before `dev_t'
    /usr/local/gnu/lib/gcc-lib/mips-dec-ultrix4.2/2.5.8/include/sys/stat.h:78: warning: no semicolon at end of struct or union
    /usr/local/gnu/lib/gcc-lib/mips-dec-ultrix4.2/2.5.8/include/sys/stat.h:79: warning: data definition has no type or storage class
    streampool.c: In function `PoolStreamOpen':
    streampool.c:236: storage size of `st' isn't known

It looks like we've gotten some messed up system include files.

Anyone have any hints?

Later, there's a really confusing problem with lisp.
It says:
    make[4]: Entering directory `/users/riovista/charless/geom/Geomview/src/bin/geomview/x11'
    lisp2c ...
    gv_: No such file or directory
    -o: No such file or directory
    clang: No such file or directory
    void gv_ui_target(int a1, int a2)
      LObject *val = LEvalFunc("ui-target",
			       LID, a1,
                           LKEYWORD, a2,

and then proceeds to dump out a whole C file to my screen, before
    rm -f geomview
    g=/users/riovista/charless/geom/Geomview; g=${g:-"."}; \
       sed -e 's|^GEOMROOT=.*$|GEOMROOT='"$g|" \
	    -e 's/${MACHTYPE}/x11/g' < geomview-x11 > geomview
    /bin/sh: bad substitution
    make[4]: *** [geomview] Error 1

The only other kind of error I notice is
    Can't locate file for: -lmg
and later
    Makefile:7: warning: overriding commands for target `.DEFAULT'
    ../../../makefiles/Makerules.common:32: warning: ignoring old commands for target `.DEFAULT'
