Installation under Ubuntu 14

Hi,

I'm trying to install graph-tool under Ubuntu 14. I didn't found gcc5 in the list of synaptic packages but
I did installed clang3.4. But when I run ./configure, it doesn't find clang3.4 (and probably detects pre-installed gcc 4.8.2 instead).
How can I tell ./configure to use clang3.4 rather than gcc4.8.2 ?

Thanks in advance

Yannis

I'm trying to install graph-tool under Ubuntu 14. I didn't found gcc5
in the list of synaptic packages but I did installed clang3.4.

Clang 3.4 is too old to compile graph-tool.

Please read the installation instructions carefully, in particular the
note about Ubuntu 14:

    https://graph-tool.skewed.de/download#debian

which says:

    When using Ubuntu 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr) or 15.04 (Vivid Vervet),
    it is necessary need to install the following PPA repository, which
    contains a newer GCC version and associated libraries:

    add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-toolchain-r/test

This will give you GCC 5.

Also, please use the pre-compiled packages for Ubuntu, instead of
trying compiling it yourself.

But when I run ./configure, it doesn't find clang3.4 (and probably
detects pre-installed gcc 4.8.2 instead). How can I tell ./configure
to use clang3.4 rather than gcc4.8.2 ?

To select a particular compiler, e.g. GCC 5, you have to call

    ./configure CXX="gcc-5"

But please try to install the pre-compiled packages first, since it is
far easier.

Best,
Tiago

Thanks for the advice. I added the repository and installed gcc-5 via
Synaptics.
I asked for ./configure CXX="gcc-5" as you said, but I still get the error
message

checking whether gcc-5 supports C++14 features by default... no

checking whether gcc-5 supports C++14 features with -std=gnu++0x... no
configure: error: *** A compiler with support for C++14 language features
is required.

My version of gcc-5 is
gcc version 5.3.0 20151204 (Ubuntu 5.3.0-3ubuntu1~14.04)

What am I doing wrong?

Please post the _entire_ output of the ./configure script, together with
the config.log file.

I solved the problem by also installing g++-5 and setting CC variable to
gcc-5 and CXX variable to g++-5. But now I have a new problem: although I
have installed packages sparsehash 1.10-1ubuntu1 and libsparsehash-dev
1.10-1ubuntu1, the configure script does not see them

Here is the output, I attach the config.log file

In Ubuntu, you have also to pass the option:

    --with-sparsehash-prefix=google

to ./configure.

OK, I passed the configure stage, but now I can't pass the make stage:

An internal compiler error is always a compiler bug, it is not
graph-tool's fault.

I haven't observed a compiler error with Ubuntu 14 using GCC 5; and I
managed to compile graph-tool just fine. So I don't know why you are
encountering this.

As I said before, I recommend you simply install the available binary
package for Ubuntu 14.

Best,
Tiago

I was able to compile graph-tool using conda on Ubuntu 14.04 (
https://anaconda.org/ostrokach/graph-tool), but it was hacky in that I had
to use system gcc-5 to compile and libgcc-5 from salford_systems as a
runtime dependency.
If you don't have admin rights on your computer, you can try installing

An internal compiler error is always a compiler bug, it is not
graph-tool's fault.

It was a memory problem, by allowing 2 GB of RAM I had much more *.lo files compiled, but still got the internal error.
With 3072 MB I got the ones in centrality, clustering, community_old, correlations, draw, flow, generation, inference
but not any further (and it took hours!)
Is there some way to compile those .lo file groups separately?

You have the habit of asking questions which are plainly answered in the
documentation.

If you read

    https://graph-tool.skewed.de/download

you will see that you need at least 4GB of RAM to compile graph-tool
(there is even a plot showing memory usage over time). In that same page
you find the instructions on how to install the Ubuntu packages.
