Errors building 3.14.0 on linux

    trying to build 3.14.0 on linux but I'm running into errors. First I got the

    Source/FreeImageToolkit/Background.cpp:138: error: 'UINT_MAX' was not declared
    in this scope

    Seems limits.h isn't included correctly? I added #include <limits.h> to the
    file which sorted that error out, but it lead to another...

    Source/OpenEXR/Imath/ImathMatrix.h:1813: error: 'memset' was not declared in
    this scope

    It seems I'm doing something wrong running into all these errors... any ideas
    what it might be? I'm a bit of a linux n00b. I'm using gcc 4.4.3 on ubuntu
    10.04 x64.

    For the record, compiling on windows went smooth.

    I've tested the compilation with gcc 4.1.2 under a Debian 4.0 x32 : all is OK
    for me.
    Sorry but I don't know what could be the problem ...

    By including <climits> in Background.cpp and <cstring> in IlmathMatrix.h I've
    successfully compiled it. Hopefully the OpenEXR folks can fix it upstream...

    Anyway, thanks for the quick response and for a sweet library :)

    I want to report that this problem is real! I had it too. On Debian GNU/Linux
    5.0.5 and gcc (Debian 4.3.2-1.1) 4.3.2.

    This is strange that this problem wasn't reported earlier !
    I've looked at the gcc 4.3 release notes and I think that changes added by
    this version will affect many Open Source libraries.
    Can you provide the complete list of errors reported by your compiler ?

    After adding the two includes as mentioned above it compiled fine (just your
    average bunch of warnings), so it seems it's only those two files which were

    Like I said, I'm a linux n00b, so I felt I was heading up the wrong track when
    I got an error after fixing the first one...

    For completeness here are the two errors:

  • I can confirm the need to "including <climits> in Background.cpp" for windows
    mingw (some late release was it...).
    Have not tested the whole 3.14, just dw selected files form CVS, but most
    certainly the other include will also pop out.

  • Contacted OpenEXR, about the issue, they said:

    "We added the fixes so you should be ok to build from the head of the cvs
    tree. We hope to roll out 1.7.1 in the coming weeks with these, and other,
    fixes in there."

    Otherwise 3.14.1 compiles without problems.
    (Windows mingw gcc 4.4, not using Makefile.mingw, VS import instead)
