Last post file error during Rosetta compiling


I am trying to compile Rosetta 3.7 (Released Sep 11, 2016) and it was building fine until it hit this error (attached below). It seems to be upset about the file, but I'm not sure how to go about solving the error since I'm not familiar with coding languages. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Yeah, that's a somewhat nonsensical bit of code that previous versions of GCC didn't have an issue with.

The easy fix is to turn off the warnings-as-errors setting in the build system: having this enabled is only really useful for developers. See for details on how to do this.

Wow, gcc 6.3, you are waaaaay out on the forefront.  That compiler was released three weeks ago.

The problem is that you have a compiler that we've never tried compiling Rosetta with, and that compiler is turning up new "warnings".  Warnings are soft problems in the code.  We turn on "warnings as errors" which makes the soft problems into hard problems to force us to fix them.  That's fine for devs but a problem for users trying new configurations.

The fastest thing to try is downgrading to a compiler that isn't newer than the Rosetta version.  Pulling a number out of a hat, try gcc 5.4 or so.  (Whatever's readily available on your system in the gcc 5 series is worth trying). 

We can also try turning off warnings as errors for your system.  The easiest way to do that would be to comment out (put a # in front of) all instances of "Werror" in the file tools/build/basic.settings.

Thank you for the  help and speedy reply!

I edited the user.setting file to ignore the Werror and was able to continue compiling Rosetta.

This is not a proper patch file, but it turns out Xingjie has fixed this bug since 3.7 (fix will be in the next weekly).  Here's the fix for the particular warning problem you saw:

    Fix the warning: the address of XXX will always evaluate as 'true'
