#56 ObexFTP ./configure bug


The configure script does not check SWIG presence. Therefore, an error may occur during the compilation.

(Using PCLinuxOS 2007)

    SWIG is not needed. Only maintainers should enable SWIG. Can you give details how this bug shows and which version you used?

    I was compiling obexftp-0.20. I suspect that the default configure switch was --enable-swig. I admit that the swig is not needed, but the compilation was successfully completed just when I had installed swig on my system.

    But now in order to respond you I tried to trigger the compilation error again, but unsuccessfully, even when I had uninstalled swig and no matter I used GCC3 or GCC4. I also switched --enable-swig and the compilation went through successfully also without swig on my system. Could you please check what is the default: --enable-swig or --disable-swig?

    Thanks for reporting back on this. The default is to disable swig.
    (See also "./configure --help" it should say "--enable-swig Rebuild language bindings [default=no]")
    Please try the latest obexftp-0.22-rc9 from http://triq.net/obexftp/
