#457 closed Bug / Defect (fixed)

Building OpenVPN for Windows from Git using openvpn-build/generic fails

Reported by: Samuli Seppänen Owned by: Gert Döring
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: Building / Compiling Version: OpenVPN git master branch (Community Ed)
Severity: Not set (select this one, unless your'e a OpenVPN developer) Keywords:


Building latest OpenVPN Git sources fails miserably:

socket.c: In function ‘socket_bind’:
socket.c:1120:7: warning: passing argument 4 of ‘setsockopt’ from
incompatible pointer type [enabled by default]
       if (setsockopt(sd, IPPROTO_IPV6, IPV6_V6ONLY, &v6only,
In file included from ../../src/compat/compat.h:29:0,

                 from socket.c:31:

This is reproduceable on Ubuntu 14.04 64-bit configured using using the automated setup script.

On Ubuntu 12.04 that has an older mingw_w64 version there are additional issues, of which some (but not all) are fixed in the patched versions of NSIS packages.

I reproduced this by creating openvpn-2.3_git.tar.gz using make dist-gzip and putting that to a webserver. Then I simply overrode the build parameters:


The build-snapshot script should produce the same results (provided it works).

I'll take it. We'll benefit a lot from being able to build master snapshots for windows again :-)

Resolution: fixed
Status: acceptedclosed

Now that was quite easily fixed, by letting d12fk and plaisthos do all the work :-)

Let's hope we'll see snapshot builds on the download area soon!

The "automatically publish Windows snapshot builds" is next on my todo, so we don't have to wait too long.
