I know I probably need to provide more detail in the error messages. Tomorrow I will start the process from scratch and document the error messages I receive better. But I still feel I might be missing something which is why I posted.
Update! I’m getting this error again on a different computer with a fresh install of Manjaro Gnome, so I think this problem is not just me. I wanted to document the issue before I mess around trying to fix it because this feels a bit like a bug in the building process.
Here’s the process I followed:
Followed the process on the building Blender page for cloning and updating the source.
Ran install_deps.sh with no arguments. --> Dependencies succesfully installed.
Used the make command provided by the install deps script:
I think the general thing I did to fix it was building more of the packages manually with install-deps.sh until it started to work. Also with the package manager I checked the location of the system libraries and corrected them in Cmake.
I can provide more detail about my setup in a bit. It’s got to just be some combination of install-deps options and cmake variables.
I’ve got it to build eventually, not sure what I exactly did…
However I can’t get it to build with Embree. Do you have any tips there? I just the deps_install.sh with all dependencies and also installed embree via the package managerlater because that helped with alembic and openvdb for me
