Compilation error: missing binary operator before token "("

You name it!

Compilation error: missing binary operator before token "("

Postby textchimp » Sat Nov 03, 2012 1:53 am

Hi all,

I'm trying to compile LinuxSampler from SVN on Ubuntu 10.04 for the first time, and my build died with the following cascade of errors. The errors seem to be originating in system files, such as /usr/include/sys/cdefs.h, which is weird. I've already compiled and installed libgig and liblscp from SVN without problems.

If anyone can suggest what I need to do, that would be great.

Thanks!

(This log is from running 'make' again after it died the first time. Config.log file here: http://pastebin.com/VjX9hn2x)

Re: Compilation error: missing binary operator before token

Postby textchimp » Fri Nov 16, 2012 2:47 pm

Does no-one have any idea what is causing this?

A bit more information:

Regarding the first error, /usr/include/sys/cdefs.h:46:44: error: missing binary operator before token "("
Line 46 reads
Code: Select all
 # if !defined __cplusplus && __GNUC_PREREQ (3, 3)

THe problem seems to be that the __GNUC_PREREQ macro is not defined. I don't know why this is, but if I add a standard definition to the file, such as

Code: Select all
#ifndef __GNUC_PREREQ
 #if defined __GNUC__ && defined __GNUC_MINOR__
  #define __GNUC_PREREQ(maj, min) \
 ((__GNUC__ << 16) + __GNUC_MINOR__ >= ((maj) << 16) + (min))
 #else
  #define __GNUC_PREREQ(maj, min) 0
 #endif
#endif


then the problem seems to be solved and the compiler moves on to the next error, i.e.
/usr/include/stdlib.h:35: error: ‘__BEGIN_DECLS’ does not name a type

Now __BEGIN_DECLS seems a pretty basic macro, but again something is going wrong with the definition of it. If I again add a standard macro def I found online:
Code: Select all
#ifndef __cplusplus
# define __BEGIN_DECLS extern "C" {
# define __END_DECLS }
#else
# define __BEGIN_DECLS /* empty */
# define __END_DECLS /* empty */
#endif


..then the compiler moves on to the next error :
/usr/include/stdlib.h:149: error: expected initializer before ‘__THROW’
which is caused by this line
Code: Select all
extern size_t __ctype_get_mb_cur_max (void) __THROW __wur;


Again, more macro definition errors.

I'm still not sure what is going on here, but I can compile everything on my system without problems, so I'm assuming it has something to do with the config process for Linuxsampler, or the order of include directories, or the like. Can anyone help me get this thing compiled? I need SFZ and SF2 support in my LinuxSampler!

Thanks.
