I'm using andLinux to do some cross-platform development using cmake (version 2.4-patch 7) as the makefile generator. If I have a cofs mount pointing to my Windows drive, cmake falls over when trying to compile a simple test app. If the same directory is mounted as a SMB share, it works fine.
The error I get from cmake is:
$ cmake . -G"Unix Makefiles"
-- Check for working C compiler: /usr/bin/gcc
-- Check for working C compiler: /usr/bin/gcc -- broken
CMake Error: The C compiler "/usr/bin/gcc" is not able to compile a simple test program.
It fails with the following output:
make: *** Makefile: No such file or directory. Stop.
CMake will not be able to correctly generate this project.
-- Configuring done
I appreciate this may be an issue with cmake, such as it creating funky filenames that cofs can't deal with, but it makes more sense for a filesystem to support a tool rather than the other way round.
