Re: [HTCondor-users] Building HTCondor with BLAHP support

Hi Ido,

Thank you, this was very helpful. But unfortunately now I've got another problem. The build system fails to compile boost 1.66. This is the error message:

 make[3]: Entering directory '/home/lukask/access_cl02/htcondor-8_9_3-build'
 [  1%] Performing build step for 'boost'

I've managed to compile boost 1.66 from source though. Is there maybe a way to tell the build system to build everything the "UW way" except for boost? I've already tried to set the corresponding environment variables but this doesn't seem to have any effect at all. 

 export CONDOR_EXTERNAL_LINK_DIRS:=$(BoostDir)/lib
 export LIBRARY_PATH:=$(BoostDir)/lib/
 export LD_LIBRARY_PATH:=$(BoostDir)/lib/
 export CMAKE_SYSTEM_LIBRARY_PATH:=$(BoostDir)/lib/
 export CMAKE_INCLUDE_PATH:=$(BoostDir)/include/
 export CPATH:=$(BoostDir)/include/

Judging by the CMake output, the build system won't attempt to detect system libraries when running in "UW_BUILD mode".

 cd htcondor-8_9_3-build && \
 make -j 1   && \
 make -j 1 install

Do you have any ideas on how to proceed?

Hi Lukas,

I'm by no means an expert on this, by had the chance to build it from source, with few different configurations, few times in the past.
The answer mostly Based on https://htcondor-wiki.cs.wisc.edu/index.cgi/wiki?p=BuildingHtcondorOnLinux and looking at the CMake code.
If you go the "UW way" (configure_uw or -DUW_BUILD:BOOL=TRUE) then the build system will fetch a specific version, patch it, build it and statistically link to the project.
If you use "Proper way" then you install it on your own on the machine.
That flow is similar for almost all external dependencies.
I hope it helps.
