Trouble compiling from CVS on Debian Sid

Hi all,

I’m having trouble compiling using the latest CVS. I’m using ppremake on amd64. The trouble happens in the panda compile, here:

make[1]: Entering directory `/home/steve/panda3d-src-20120108-1450/panda3d/panda/src/glxdisplay'
g++ -ftemplate-depth-30  -c -o Opt3-Linux/p3glxdisplay_config_glxdisplay.o -I. -I/home/steve/panda3d-src-20120108-1450/panda3d/panda -I../cull -I../display -I../downloader -I../event -I../express -I../glgsg -I../glstuff -I../gobj -I../gsgbase -I../linmath -I../mathutil -I../nativenet -I../net -I../pandabase -I../pgraph -I../pgraphnodes -I../pipeline -I../pnmimage -I../pstatclient -I../putil -I/usr/local/panda/20120108-1450/include -I/usr/include/python2.6 -I/usr/include -I/usr/include -I/usr/include/python2.6 -I/usr/include    -g -O2 -fPIC config_glxdisplay.cxx

                 from config_glxdisplay.cxx:16:
glxGraphicsPipe.h:24:29: fatal error: x11GraphicsPipe.h: No such file or directory

I expect the trouble is because there’s no “-I…/x11display” in there. I’m not sure how to fix that though. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!


I think it failed to do this because it didn’t detect x11-dev on your system. Really, it shouldn’t have attempted to build glxdisplay in this case either, and I’ve just committed a fix for that mistake.

Any particular reason you’re using ppremake instead of makepanda?


Thanks David for your quick response, that cured that particular issue. Sorry for my slow response, my day job gets busy. :-/

I had tried to build 1.7.2 with makepanda and failed, and figured ppremake was a fair alternative, and while I was thinking about making things difficult, why not throw CVS into the mix? :slight_smile:

My ppremake build’s now breaking in ./direct…

make[1]: Entering directory `/home/steve/panda3d-src-20120110-2022/panda3d/direct/src/heapq'

…so I’ll give makepanda a try.


Hi David,

Unfortunately I didn’t have any luck with makepanda and CVS…

[T1] Building C++ object built/tmp/p3vision_composite1.o

(I’ve posted the whole build output at just in case you need it.)

Any tips would be much appreciated. Thank you!


You don’t have the cxcore headers installed, which are part of OpenCV. Or build without OpenCV support.

As to your ppremake build, perhaps you didn’t “make install” in panda yet? You have to make install in each of dtool, panda, direct, pandatool before you move on to the next one.


Hmm, I have these installed:


Should those be sufficient?

I disabled opencv and it finished the build successfully. Thanks.


Good question, wish I could answer it. :slight_smile: makepanda did the trick so I abandoned the ppremake build. Thanks for all your help! Looking forward to getting going on panda.
