[Dev] Packaging feathercoind and feathercoin-qt on Linux


  • Moderators | Tip Wellenreiter

    I always start with Opensuse, as this is my ‘home’ distribution and I’m familiar with that one.
    Adapting to Debian/Ubuntu is easier for me, than doing Ubuntu first and then the other distributions.

    In any case I will release for all distributions mentioned above at the same date.

    Status post updated


  • Moderators | Tip Wellenreiter

    Packaging of libzxing for Debian 7 done.
    Packages are available at:

    https://build.opensuse.org/package/binaries/home:wellenreiter01/libzxing?repository=Debian_7.0


  • Moderators | Tip Wellenreiter

    Just a status update: I was occupied with other topics the last days.

    Will focus on Ubuntu next, as Debian 7 is using qt4 only, which is causing issues when compiling the GUI Version and Debian 8 has a broken build chain for cmake, making it impossible at the moment to compile libzxing in my environment


  • Moderators | Tip Wellenreiter

    Broken build chain for Debian 8 fixed

    Packaging of libzxing for Debian 8 done.
    Packages are available at:
    https://build.opensuse.org/package/binaries/home:wellenreiter01/libzxing?repository=Debian_8.0


  • Moderators | Tip Wellenreiter

    Packaging for Ubuntu is done.


  • Regular Member | Tip surfguy72

    awesome!


  • Moderators | Tip Wellenreiter

    Some fine tuning still needs to be done and I need to describe how to add the repository to the sources list on the local PC.


  • Moderators | Tip Wellenreiter

    Packaging of feathercoind and gui-wallet for Debian 8, 32 Bit done.


  • Moderators | Tip Wellenreiter

    Packaging of feathercoind and gui-wallet for Debian 8, 64 Bit done. Packages are available upon request.


  • Moderators | Tip Wellenreiter

    As Version 0.9.3 was released today the Installation packages (.rpm / .deb) are made available here under ‘unstable’ as the packages are not part of the official distributions.

    Updated also the status post above

    The same code is compiling fine on Ubuntu 15.04, Debian 8 and other distributions.

    Possible answers being looked at :

    Just reading about a similar problem compiling :

    I think that the problem is that you put #ifdef instead of #ifndef at the top of your header.h file

    a search for what includes boost showed - checkpoints.h

    Which is a likely area for an error as it is included code for FTC. However, I can’t see a logical error in variable definition there, yet …

    https://github.com/FeatherCoin/Feathercoin/blob/0.9.3.1/src/checkpoints.h

    Also note https://github.com/FeatherCoin/Feathercoin/blob/0.9.3.1/src/rpcprotocol.cpp

    last change was to fix compile error …

    Also noted libqt5core5a replaces libqt5core5 mentioned in master-0.8/doc/readme-qt.rst

    feathercoin-qt 0.8.7.3 now compiles for me under Kubuntu 15.10

    Method :
    Installing the 12.04 dependencies from master-0.8/doc/readme-qt.rst

    A Library has changed name and become libqt5core5a, install that

    qmake
    make


  • Moderators | Tip wrapper

    Tried to register the Feathercoin name on opensuse build service but it has been taken (and abandoned ) by [email protected]

    Gonna contact him to get the name.

    Building Feathercoind

    0.8.7.3 - buildunit.txt

    sudo apt-get install libboost1.37-dev fails

    Re: Error Compiling Zetacoin Ubuntu
    January 29, 2016, 08:41:47 AMI have similar problems with various coins- the solution is usually I try a different version of boost-devel, make clean and recompile.


    Seems Boost 1.58 is the probable cause : – Found this post

    Considering that boost 1.59 seems fine with the code, I’d go for:

    if((${Boost_MAJOR_VERSION} EQUAL 1) AND (${Boost_MINOR_VERSION} EQUAL 58))
    message( STATUS “Defining BOOST_VARIANT_USE_RELAXED_GET_BY_DEFAULT”)
    add_definitions("-DBOOST_VARIANT_USE_RELAXED_GET_BY_DEFAULT")
    endif()

    just after the find_package( Boost … ) in the main CMakeLists.txt


    Looks like there was a PPA to get the latest Boost version : will continue tomorrow…

    https://codeyarns.com/2013/12/27/how-to-upgrade-the-boost-library-on-ubuntu/


    Found this :

    https://github.com/icook/zmark/commit/40ddb16a05c703c7cd9dce10f3aef09c0679e3d3

    Edited line 299 of rpcrawtransaction.cpp

    to
    const CScriptID& hash = boost::get<CScriptID>(address);


    Continues further with build then error :

    shiftdialog.cpp:28:23: fatal error: QJsonObject: No such file or directory


    Installed libzxing libqrencode-dev qtbase5-dev libqt5opengl5-dev


    Now build fails with new error :

    CXX libbitcoinqt_a-shiftdialog.o
    shiftdialog.cpp:28:23: fatal error: QJsonObject: No such file or directory
    compilation terminated.


    Found similar problem compiling MInt

    There must be a newer version of that object files other than the one supplied with mint. The version table ends at GLIBCXX_3.4.19

    Code: Select all
    objdump -x /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libstdc++.so.6.0.19|grep ‘GLIBCXX_3.4.1’

    Tried : Install libstdc+±5 (4.9 installed) build failed


    Found another similar Mint problem @Wellenreiter worked on :

    https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=178286.msg13823798#msg13823798

    qtbas5-dev appears to be installed correctly…

    QJsonObject: The compiler misses the file qjasonobject.h
    As Mint is a kind of special flavor of Ubuntu I checked the Ubuntu packages.
    You need to install the package qtbase5-dev. That package contains qjsonobject.h as you can see here:
    http://packages.ubuntu.com/wily/amd64/qtbase5-dev/filelist

    QtPrintSupport/QPrinter: The compiler misses the file qprinter.h
    Again, the package qtbase5-dev contains the header files for QtPrintSupport.
    If you have installed qtbase5-dev, check for the directories containing qprinter.h and qjsonobject.h
    and specifiy these directories for the configure script. Use ‘configure --help’ for syntax.

    Searched for qjsonobject.h and qjsonobject.h not found


    Found This : https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-27096 :

    All instances of “#include <QPrinter>” or “#include <QPrintDialog>” that I had in my Qt4 project must now be replaced by “#include <Qt/qprinter.h>” or “#include <Qt/qprintdialog.h>”, which is not Qt standard.

    Edit :
    src/qt/utilitydialog.cpp

    Actual position of Qt printer headers in Ubuntu 15.10 :
    /usr/include/x86_64-linux-gnu/qt5/QtPrintSupport/qprinter.h
    usr/include/x86_64-linux-gnu/qt5/QtPrintSupport/qprintdialog.h

    Try - Change lines including utilitydialog.cpp headers include from :

    // Use QT5’s new modular classes
    #include <QtPrintSupport/QPrinter>
    #include <QtPrintSupport/QPrintDialog>
    #include <QtPrintSupport/QPrintPreviewDialog>

    Change lines in utilitydialog.cpp to :
    // Use QT5’s new modular classes
    #include <QtPrintSupport/qprinter.h>
    #include <QtPrintSupport/qprintdialog.h>
    #include <QtPrintSupport/qprintpreviewdialog.h>

    build error :

    CXX libbitcoinqt_a-notificator.o
    CXX libbitcoinqt_a-optionsdialog.o
    In file included from optionsdialog.cpp:17:0:

    CXX libbitcoinqt_a-shiftdialog.o
    shiftdialog.cpp:28:23: fatal error: QJsonObject: No such file or directory
    compilation terminated.


    from : https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-27096
    Did you add QT += printsupport in the pro file?
    It should work that way. Please let me know if you still have problems.

    Can’t find feathercoin.pro in 0.9.3.1 release source.


    Back to basics ran full instructions :

    qmake failed

    so ran full build with qmake -project :

    make clean
    ./autogen.sh
    autoupdate
    ./configure --with-incompatible-bdb
    qmake -project
    make


    Added QT += printsupport to feathercoin.pro file as suggested here :

    https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-27096

    Caused early crash of compile with error :

    make[5]: Entering directory ‘/home/tony/programs/Feathercoin/src/qt’
    CXX libbitcoinqt_a-shiftdialog.o
    shiftdialog.cpp:28:23: fatal error: QJsonObject: No such file or directory
    compilation terminated.
    Makefile:1509: recipe for target ‘libbitcoinqt_a-shiftdialog.o’ failed
    make[5]: *** [libbitcoinqt_a-shiftdialog.o] Error 1

    edited utiltydialog.cpp to try a different “full path” to Qt “problem” libraries.

    // Use QT5’s new modular classes
    #include <QtPrintSupport/QPrinter>
    #include <QtPrintSupport/QPrintDialog>
    #include <QtPrintSupport/QPrintPreviewDialog>
    #include <QtGui/QPainter>
    #include “walletmodel.h”

    // Use QT5’s new modular classes
    #include <QtPrintSupport/qprinter.h>
    #include <QtPrintSupport/qprintdialog.h>
    #include <QtPrintSupport/qprintpreviewdialog.h>
    #include <QtGui/QPainter>
    #include “walletmodel.h”

    Tried compile with modified headed and …/configure --with-incompatible-bdb --enable-dependency-tracking

    build failed.


  • Moderators | Tip Wellenreiter

    too much in one post.

    • qjasonobject:
      • is available with qt5 only. I’m not sure, which qt-package I installed to get it, if it is not the one I mentioned in the other thread
    • feathercoin.pro
      • doesn’t exist and is not needed for qt5 based compiles

    I will try to build for Ubuntu 15.10 and 6.04 with your modification in rpcrawtransaction.cpp. May be I also will try to change the dependency for boost lib to boost <= 1.59
