Summary0000179: Compilation fails on ubuntu 16.04
DescriptionOne cannot compile OpenViBE with the last LTS version of Ubuntu.

Dependencies: ogre 1.9 replaced 1.8, libboost 0.58 replaced 0.54.

Should dependencies (and code) be updated to those new versions, still have to switch the system back to gcc 4.9, from gcc 5.3 that is now the default, otherwise errors arise during compilation.

We'll investigate this after point release 16.04.1 is out.

Thanks for the report.

Fixed in advance! Try git commit 1773ab6c82e917ab13b9c7c752a6a49ab0f3bc07 (git branch wip-jlindgre-fix-ubuntu1604 or via git master).

The commit fixes the "linux-install_dependencies" script, but the compilation still fails, e.g. demos raise some ogre errors, and part as "ovsgCBoxAlgorithmSkeletonGenerator.cpp" that have troubles related to boost library.

I did not test that on a fresh install, though, maybe I did something wrong...

When I implemented the commit, I tested it on a 16.04 running on a VM and it worked just fine. To do any further work on the problem, I need the conditions to reproduce. Btw, one thing I noted on 16.04 is that the boost/ogre/cegui versions need to be very specific ones. These are hard-coded to the installer.

I tested with another clean Ubuntu 16.04, it was x86_64 on an AMD processor. After, the build completed successfully on the default 5.x gcc. Please check that you have only the versions of the packages that are meant to be in 16.04 installed, as indicated by install dependencies Ubuntu section, and that there are no conflicting files from other versions of boost, ogre or cegui still around. If there's no feedback in a while, I'm going to mark this as closed.

Hi, my bad, I forgot to switch back to gcc 5 when I tried your patch, the compilation is now going well, so far OpenViBE is working. Thanks for the fix! :)
