Compiling on AMD64
« on: March 04, 2005, 03:40:35 am »

Can I compile uqm on my AMD64? I went through the install script but it failed saying:

Code:
src/sc2code/gameopt.c: In function 'DoPickGame':
src/sc2code/gameopt.c:1223: warning: pointer targets in passing argument 1 of 'sprintf' differ in signedness
src/sc2code/gameopt.c:1232: warning: pointer targets in passing argument 1 of 'sprintf' differ in signedness
src/sc2code/gameopt.c:1239: warning: pointer targets in passing argument 1 of 'sprintf' differ in signedness
make: *** [obj/debug/./src/sc2code/gameopt.o] Error 1


Are the pointer target warnings a result of AMD64? Is the error a result of it too? I know AMD64 supports 32-bit code, but if I can compile it for 64-bit code, that'd be great.

No, I think it's safe to say your target architecture is not the culprit.

sprintf(), on my platform at least, expects its first arg to be a char *.

The pointer sprintf() is being passed in that code is type UNICODE, which is an alias for unsigned char *.  So strictly speaking, it's correct.  But from a practical point of view, it's wrong.  Smiley

What compiler are you using?  I can't get GCC 3.3 to complain about this at all.  Did you turn on strict compile checks?  Does turning them off help?

While this problem is not cause by the fact that you're running on AMD64, you'll run into serious problems soon enough.
Running the game on any 64 bit platform just isn't possible at this time. I'm working on it though (on occasion).

I'm using gcc 4.0 (Should I be using 3.3?). As for strict compile checks, I've been writing Java so long that I don't even remember where to look to see if strict compile checks are on. I'm trying to get back into writing C/C++ code though, so if you can tell me where I'm supposed to be looking, I'd appreciate it.

But thanks for the warning, meep-eep. I guess I'll just go 32-bit.
