#4402 closed defect (fixed)

BUILD: MacOS X nightly build version number wrong

Reported by: criezy Owned by: dhewg
Priority: normal Component: Port: Mac OS X
Keywords: Cc:


The nightly build for MacOS X has the wrong version number (0.14.0svn, which is the version in the Info.plist file). The window title is correct however (it displays 1.0.0snv).

The Info.plist file is created from an file. Now the only dependency of Info.plist is Hence when the version or revision changes, that file is not recreated...

I guess similar issues affect other files that are created from ".in" files. Maybe we should simply delete (and hence recreate) these files whenever we start an incremental build.
Or maybe once in a while, a "make clean" should be run. Or maybe before *every* build we should run "make clean" (thanks to ccache this shouldn't have a *too* negative impact...)

Andre, BTW, to how big did you set ccache's cache size? If it is too small to keep object files for all ports, it will become ineffective (and might in fact slow down builds).

Proposed solutions:
1) make the $(VERSION_FILES) rules in Makefile.common phony
2) remove the $(VERSION_FILES) stuff from the Makefiles altogether and add the osx and iphone Info.plist filenames to tools/

1) would gegenerate the target files as they are needed
2) would merge 2 ways of changing the version, but requires that the target files are checked in

I would go with 2), since merging 2 ways of doing the same thing is always a good thing imho :)

about ccache 2GB for the "buildbot" user, thats one cache for all ports. ccache -s:
cache directory /var/lib/buildbot/.ccache
cache hit 283271
cache miss 1982685
called for link 35270
compile failed 5222
preprocessor error 54
not a C/C++ file 69
no input file 1624
files in cache 52048
cache size 1021.8 Mbytes
max cache size 2.0 Gbytes
