(x-post from 'bugs') mesquite-2.1.2 compile fix for newer gcc
 
Hi everyone,

I've seen a lot of heartache around over trying to compile the Thirdparty stage 3 package mesquite-2.1.2 with newer gcc (4.6.x) versions. I was able to add a couple lines into the spec file that effectively patches the source code and allows a clean installation.

The key is in this file:

Code:

/OpenFOAM-1.6-ext/ThirdParty/rpmBuild/SPECS/mesquite-2.1.2.spec
Add the following:
Code:

    find ./src/ObjectiveFunction -ls -type f -exec sed -i 's/size_t/std::size_t/g' {} \;

    find ./src/QualityMetric -ls -type f -exec sed -i 's/size_t/std::size_t/g' {} \;

immediately before this line:
Code:

make -j $WM_NCOMPROCS
I think this would be compatible with older compilers as well but I'm not sure. The mantis server is down so I can't currently submit a bug report. I'll try again later though.

Cheers!

Kyle
