problem : poco failed to recompile. Ubuntu 16.04(x86)

Hi !

Trying to run on Ubuntu 16.04(x86) but I get an error when it needs to recompile POCO, because of gcc5.

This is the message :

   It seems you are running gcc 5 or later, due to incomatible ABI with previous versions
we need to recompile poco. This will take a while

/home/ralph/OF/scripts/apothecary/formulas/poco/ line 36: curl: command not found

 ^ Received error ^

chown: cannot access 'build/poco': No such file or directory

Does anyone know how to solve this ?

Thanks !!

you need to install curl:

sudo apt-get install curl

this should be installed automatically with the latest release, 0.9.8 are you using that or an older version?

Manual install of curl solve my problem, thank you very much !!!

Hello folks,

Just attempted a fresh install of of 0.9.8 on Ubuntu 16.04. Ran the in scripts/linux/ubumtu and received the error

make[1]: Leaving directory '/home/scratch/src/ofx/of_v0.9.8_linux64_release/scripts/apothecary/build/poco/Net'

 ^ Received error ^
logname: no login name

Curl is installed:

dpkg -l | grep curl
ii curl 7.47.0-1ubuntu2.2

Cannot build any of the examples due to poco error. (since it didn’t build in the dependencies install step).

Any help much appreciated.

It works fine with nightly build of_v20170714_linux64gcc5_release on Ubuntu 16.04. So I am happy!



Not able to find this release anymore.
