I need help with compiling Celestia on Windows 10

Post #1by norinonoroi » 30.06.2020, 04:26

(I apologize in advance for the long post)
I've been following the Install.md included with the Celestia source, and managed to get as far as installing all the libraries via vcpkg:
libpng:x64-windows
libjpeg-turbo:x64-windows
gettext:x64-windows
lua:x64-windows
fmt:x64-windows
libepoxy:x64-windows
eigen3:x64-windows
as well as
qt5:x64-windows-static (the non-static libraries wouldn't install, so I'm trying the static ones)
luajit:x64-windows

When I run cmake -DCMAKE_TOOLCHAIN_FILE=c:/tools/vcpkg/scripts/buildsystems/vcpkg.cmake ..
from my Celestia build64 directory I get the following:
----------------------------------------------

of CMake.

The cmake-policies(7) manual explains that the OLD behaviors of all
policies are deprecated and that a policy should be set to OLD only under
specific short-term circumstances. Projects should be ported to the NEW
behavior and not rely on setting a policy to OLD.

----------------------------------------
The first error seems to be with wordexp.h, did I miss something in the libraries I built with vcpkg? or is the PATH not getting setup correctly?

Any help or insight into what I'm doing wrong would be appreciated

You need to download CelestiaContent into "content" subdirectory. Better instead of downloading source code from github use

Code: Select all

git clone https://github.com/CelestiaProject/Celestia.git
cd Celestia
git submodule update --init


to download Celestia with dependencies
