*SOLVED* GCC Compiler Missing Header
« on: March 09, 2013, 06:07:01 PM »
Hi,

Cannot compile  SRC, due to missing vga.h header on TCP 4.73.  Where is the GCC dependency that is used to load this missing header file/folder 'vga.h'?

THX

Apps provides functions says it is in linux-headers.

Hi gerald_clark,
Your suggestion resulted in the same error dialog:

tc@box:$make -f svgalib/makefile
gcc -march=i486 -O2 -fomit-frame-pointer -g -Wall -D LINUX -D POSIX -D CLEMTEST -D OVRL -D NOKEY -D HICOLOR    -c -o linmain.o linmain.c
linmain.c:7:17: fatal error: vga.h: No such file or directory
compilation terminated.
make: *** [linmain.o] Error 1
tc@box:$
*************
THX 4 RPY!

Edit your makefile to correspond to Core standards.

Hi gerald_clark,
Core Standards might be different than mine.  Please point me to the one etched-in-stone?

Do you have a working svgalib installation?

Hi tinypoodle,
First off, does the makefile provided meet Core Standards?  The svgalib is the next hurdle and need your skillfullness getting a working installation of it?
The only recipe I've got to work with:
SRC:
http://glennmcc.org/aralinux/
EXTRACT:
tar -z -xf arachne-src-1.97.tgz
CD TO THE ASRC197 DIRECTORY:
make -f svgalib/makefile

I somehow suspect you might need svgalib installed first, plus possibly svgalib dev files as well.

Thing is that it is not guaranteed svgalib could compile against recent kernel versions.

There is some project trying to keep it on life support with patches here:

And it looks like the missing vga.h you mention in OP is most likely part of svgalib source.

Hey tinypoodle!
Are you referring to svgalib-1.4.3.tar.gz, found here:

http://svgalib.org/

If so, what syntax is used for untarring/installing vga.h in the correct directory?

Hi eltone
You installed  linux-headers-3.0.21-tinycore.tcz ?
Quote
linmain.c:7:17: fatal error: vga.h: No such file or directory
Does that line read:
Code: [Select]
#include <vga.h>If so, try changing it to:
Code: [Select]
#include <video/vga.h>

Yes, that's the official stable version from 2001...
You would have to build and install svgalib according to documentation, but please first re-read all my prior posts in this thread and the whole page of the link in Reply #9

Rich,
VGA.H was tracked back to origin:
Code: [Select]
/lib/modules/3.0.21-tinycore/build/include/video/vga.h
Inorder to decipher what line 7:17 reads, could you provide a index-map to linmain.c?
