<!-- TITLE: FreeBSD --> <!-- SUBTITLE: Special instructions on compiling OpenSpace on FreeBSD --> # Developer Tools Install the following tools: - Git 2.7+ - GCC 7.1+ or Clang - CMake 3.8+ ## Git You can install git as follows: `sudo pkg install git` ## CMake You can install cmake as follows: `sudo pkg install cmake` Before version 3.10.0, you will need to modify `/usr/local/share/cmake/Modules/FindPkgConfig.cmake` as follows ``` endif() endif() + if(CMAKE_SYSTEM_NAME STREQUAL "FreeBSD" AND NOT CMAKE_CROSSCOMPILING) + list(APPEND _lib_dirs "libdata/pkgconfig") + endif() list(APPEND _lib_dirs "lib/pkgconfig") list(APPEND _lib_dirs "share/pkgconfig") ``` ## gcc You can install gcc7 as follows `sudo pkg install gcc7-devel` You will need to set environment variables as follows (for sh, bash, zsh): ``` CC=gcc7; export CC CXX=g++7; export CXX CPP=c++7; export CPP CXXFLAGS=-std=gnu++17; export CXXFLAGS ``` # Libraries Install the following libraries: - cspice (compile, install by yourself, and rename cspice.a and csupport.a to libcspice.a and libcsupport.a for convenience.) - libGL (`sudo pkg install libGL`) - GLEW (`sudo pkg install glew`) - Freeimage (`sudo pkg install freeimage`) - libsysinfo (`sudo pkg install libsysinfo`) - libinotify (`sudo pkg install libinotify`) - GDAL (`sudo pkg install gdal`) Some other libraries will be needed.... # Compilation ## remove minizip line in assimp/CMakeLists.txt. To avoid linking issues of minizip, remove next line use_pkgconfig(UNZIP minizip) in ext/ghoul/ext/assimp/CMakeLists.txt. ### Background use_pkgconfig macro defined in cmake-modules/FindPkgMacros.cmake doesn't work for FreeBSD at now. FindPkgMacros.cmake depends on FindPkgConfig.cmake that is contained in cmake distribution, and it doesn't work for FreeBSD because FreeBSD's pkgconfig dir is ${PREFIX}/libdata/pkgconfig that is different with usual one. This directory structure is not considered by FindPkgCOnfig.cmake. Thiis issue will be fixed if merge-request is accepted: [Merge request !1108 on gitlab at kitware](https://gitlab.kitware.com/cmake/cmake/merge_requests/1108)
