Hey all,

Anybody know who maintains the port for K-3D.

K-3D at /usr/ports/graphics/k3d is out of date it appears as they are putting out k3d-source-0.7.11.0.tar.gz while we are getting k3d-0.6.7.0-src.tar.gz.

The maintainer just says ports@freebsd.org, which is the mailing list.

So far I have modified Makefile and distinfo only enough fetch the latest version of source.

I am not sure about whether there are new dependencies.

I am not sure how to update the pkg-plist or even whether I need to.

Also there are some patches in the files dir that I am not sure whether they still apply or not.

If the maintainer is listed as ports@freebsd.org, it's unmaintained. If little has changed in how the software is maintained, you may just be able to do what you have done and get it to work. Otherwise, there will be some diagnostic to figure out how to get it working again.

Thank you for the response.

It definitely wouldn't work when I changed it to use the latest source files. It crashed trying to apply the two patches saying it couldn't apply them cleanly.

They are using cmake to build and mercurial as their source management system.
http://developer.k-3d.org/
http://www.k-3d.org/wiki/CMake_Build

So I followed the steps to see if I could get it to compile (not with ports just how it says on the site) and it failed.

Code:

I will try to get through this, but it may be a big learning curve.

Hey,

Just so anyone who reads this knows, I also started a post on the K-3D forum.
http://www.k-3d.org/forums/topic/updated-port-for-freebsd-8

I got passed the above error by installing a different version of uuid (described in the K-3D thread).

No I am getting a lot further but then getting this error:

So it cannot find <sys/inotify.h> because it doesn't exist. So I have googled and haven't yet found what to install to make it exists, so if anybody in this forum already knows the answer, that could same me continued research time.

So here is an update.

<sys/inotify.h> is for linux only and FreeBSD doesn't have it but instead users kqueue.

So this feature is actually a modular feature that can be enabled or disabled and K-3D has already responded to my post on their forum and fixed this so that this feature is detected as disabled on FreeBSD.

I am at the point where it is all compiling successfully.

There is an exception running the program and I will work with K-3D through their forums to get this resolved.

Here is the information on how I can build it.
http://rhyous.com/2010/01/26/how-to-compile-and-install-k-3d-0-7-12-on-freebsd-8/

Hopefully this can help us update the port.

Agreed.

I have already been reading that documentation. I have modified a port manually when it has been something simple, but this will be my first big change where I have to do a complete rewrite.

Hey all,

I thought I would provide an update:

How to compile and install K-3D 0.7.12 on FreeBSD 8?

Pretty much, there are four errors, that maybe are bugs or maybe they could be missing dependencies or something:

Bug #1 - A check in k3d_main.cpp fails on FreeBSD 8.

Code:
ERROR: Gtk: g_hash_table_slist_values: assertion hash_table != NULL' failed
INFO: Saving options to /home/jared/.k3d/options.k3d
CRITICAL: Caught exception [std::runtime_error] - UI plugin module [/home/jared/k3d-build/lib/k3d/plugins/k3d-ngui.module] does not implement k3d::iuser_interface
*** Error code 1


Bug # 2 - Running K-3D on FreeBSD provides warnings about atk-bridge

Code:
(k3d:55092): atk-bridge-WARNING **: AT_SPI_REGISTRY was not started at session startup.

(k3d:55092): atk-bridge-WARNING **: IOR not set.

(k3d:55092): atk-bridge-WARNING **: Could not locate registry

Bug #3 - An unexpected character error
Code:
:1: error: unexpected character \241', expected keyword - e.g.style' 


Bug #4 - Problem loading the VirtualOpenGLSDSFacePainter plugin on FreeBSD
Code:
ERROR: /home/jared/k3d/modules/virtual_opengl_painters/sds_point_painter.cpp line 73: assertion delegate' failed
ERROR: Error creating document plugin: VirtualOpenGLSDSPointPainter
ERROR: /home/jared/k3d/modules/virtual_opengl_painters/sds_edge_painter.cpp line 73: assertion `delegate' failed
ERROR: Error creating document plugin: VirtualOpenGLSDSEdgePainter
ERROR: /home/jared/k3d/modules/virtual_opengl_painters/sds_face_painter.cpp line 73: assertion `delegate' failed
ERROR: Error creating document plugin: VirtualOpenGLSDSFacePainter



If anyone recognizes any of these as not so much a bug but a missing library, that would be great.

As of now, I can get the latest version of K-3D to compile and run if I bypass the errors in Bug #1 by commenting out a block of code that runs the check that causes this failure.

Hey all,

Just an update. I have been testing with the developer and K-3D now compiles and runs. There is a big runtime issue that we will try to track down.

My goal is that when K-3D version 8 comes out, there is a FreeBSD port for it.

Hey all,

The developer for K-3D says that we need to update the libgl port from mesa 7.4.4 to a later version such as 7.6.1.

I checked out the port's make file and it looks like all of them need to be updated at once:
Code:
...
# Remember to upgrade the following ports everytime you bump MESAVERSION:
#
#    - graphics/libGL
#    - graphics/libGLU
#    - graphics/libGLw
#    - graphics/dri
...

Or maybe I could just update my ports tree and see that they updated these ports three days ago, only you have to make it as follows to get it to use the new version, or else it will still use the old:

make WITHOUT_NOUVEAU=yes install

Adamk,

Thanks, I wish I would have seen it, I would have responded. I looked through my email history an didn't see that response and I have cleared my spam so I don't know if it went there.

Code:
[jared@FBSD8 ~/build-k3d]$ glxinfo

Yeah, that output doesn't look good.

Attached is the output of my Xorg.0.log

It is the one from my VMWare machine

I have a physical machine too, I try to do things on both to make sure the issue is not just caused by using VMWare, so I will post those results maybe by tomorrow.

The log file you attached... That's from the machine that gave you the GLX error when you ran glxinfo?

Adamk,

Wow. The issue is not occurring anymore.

There portupgrade -a was running every night, so I have to assume that something updated.

K-3D now moves past that point where it was failing on gtkglext.

I currently have K-3D compiled with debugging and with tests enabled and it is failing on a test. So I will compile a release build without debugging and test and see if the 3D issues seen are fixed.

Yeah, it sounds like your 3D drivers were not functioning properly if you were getting an error about the GLX extension not being available. Though the vmware driver won't provide 3D acceleration (and I'm not sure if that's really necessary for k3d), it should at least load the GLX extension and give you some software accelerated 3D functionality.

Also, for what it's worth, I pulled the k3d source via mercurial, built it, and it's running here just fine as far as I can tell. It loaded the digital clock example.

EDIT:

OK, I can't actually get a preview of an animation because it defaults to the RenderMan Engine and when I change the setting to yafray and then check the setting again, it's back at RenderMan :) But that may just be due to my limited experience with k3d.
