#4237 closed defect (fixed)

AMIGAOS: Makefile.common broken

Reported by: raziel- Owned by: waltervn
Priority: normal Component: Port: AmigaOS4
Version: Keywords: build
Cc: Game:


I get a Makefile.common:158:*** target pattern contains no `%'. Stop. on the latest revision

Must have been revision 39493 or 39494 which broke it?

None of these revisions modified Makefile.common, or anything related to the build system. See here for all revisions that modified this file: <>

Yes, truly sorry, i mixed them, it was 39497 which broke it whereas 39496 runs fine

comment:3 by wjp, 15 years ago

Some preliminary conclusions after an IRC debugging session:

The direct reason it fails is that VERSION contains a grep error message rather than a version. The grep command executed is 'grep SCUMMVM_VERSION ${srcdir}/base/internal_version.h' with srcdir equal to '.' . Unfortunately '.' is not a valid path in AmigaOS, so grep can't open ./base/internal_version.h.

Now I am confused. Before rev 39497, that line of code used cat. Then rev 39497 changed it to use tail. And only the revision *after* that, 39528, changed it to use grep.

So... maybe it was broken long before 39497, and it just wasn't immediately obvious that VERSION and all derived values contained bogus data?

Possibly, yes

I can't check because in the meantime i updated my SDK (lots of bugfixes and additions) and maybe that was one of the reasons? Maybe a bugfix in my SDK brought it to show up?

I cross checked by building the past revisions and it definitely was introduced with 39497, 39496 doesn't have the error, but unfortunately none of the later ones fix it either :-/

Fixed in trunk. Worked around the grep issue by using cat to read internal_version.h and piping the output to grep.

Well, my confusion is not cleared: Does Walter's change really *fix* the issue, or just hide it again? If "grep" doesn't accept "." in a path, does cat?

Raziel, if you go into the ScummVM source dir and enter the following two commands, what do they output? grep SCUMMVM_VERSION ./base/internal_version.h

cat ./base/internal_version.h | grep SCUMMVM_VERSION
