LMMS not compiling with VST support.

Postby Piece_o_Ham » 2015-05-22 16:09

I did see another topic on this forum regarding VSTs in LMMS, but it didn't solve my problem. I am running using the 64-bit testing branch of debian, which may be causing some of my problems. I tried compiling LMMS myself, but I ran into an issue with wine when it tried to compile RemoteVstPlugin. It seems as though wine didn't install winegcc or any other tools like that. After a while, I did manage to find winegcc and some of the other tools in /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/wine/bin. I decided to add some symlinks in /usr/local/bin to point to winegcc, wineg++, winecpp, and winebuild. After that, it seemed to give a different error message, but still failed to compile. It now gives me the following error:

Code: Select all
[ 83%] Generating RemoteVstPlugin
/usr/bin/ld: Relocatable linking with relocations from format elf64-x86-64 (/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/wine/wine/libwinecrt0.a(exe_entry.o)) to format elf32-i386 (RemoteVstPlugin.Azfbf1.o) is not supported
winebuild: /usr/bin/ld failed with status 1

make[1]: *** [plugins/vst_base/CMakeFiles/vstbase.dir/all] Error 2
Makefile:136: recipe for target 'all' failed
make: *** [all] Error 2

I may be missing some dependencies because I couldn't run build-dep without removing skype but I don't think that's the problem. I thought the above problem may have something to do with wine, so I was going to try compiling wine to. I ran into problems with that, and ditched that idea. I really don't know what to do anymore. I can't just disable VST support, because that's why I tried to compile LMMS by myself to begin with! Why isn't VST support enabled by default anyways? I really could use some help. Thanks.

To add VST support, you'll need libwine-dev as one of the build-deps. I'm not sure if the 64-bit wine will support VST, though, if not, you need to compile against libwine-dev:i386 and use wine:i386 on 64-bit.
