It works locally for me. The include path in the compile command seems correct.


Does the header file referenced in the error message exist in that location?


Does running the Allwclean in the foamyMesh directory beforehand help?

Hello Will

the include directory does not exist. The path to the file is ./Triangulation_3/include/CGAL/Delaunay_triangulation_cell_base_with_circumcenter_3.h

Allwclean (obviously) does not help

You need to unpack the sources into your ThirdParty-dev if you're not using cgal-system. Unpack this:

Hello Will

I think I got it. on I downloaded the "Source code" (last position on the page), while you are working with CGAL-5.0.2.tar.xz (somewhere in the middle of the page). Up to now with the makeCGAL script it did not make a difference, but the two packages are not entirely identical. Using CGAL-5.0.2.tar.xz resolves the issue.

Ah, ok, I see it now. CGAL's cmake configuration presumably used to deal with the fact that the sources were in a different place and ultimately installed them all to the same place. We're not using that any more, though, so we no longer get that advantage.

I think it's better to insist on the "CGAL-5.0.2.tar.xz" pack rather than also allow the "cgal-releases-CGAL-5.0.2.tar.gz" pack, partly because the latter requires renaming following extraction anyway, but mostly because the former is a tenth of the size. The "cgal-releases-CGAL-5.0.2.tar.gz" pack has all the documentation and examples and test data and such that we don't need.

What would be nice is if the ThirdParty-dev/Allwmake just downloaded it automatically if FOAMY_HEX_MESH is true and CGAL_ARCH_PATH is set (ditto boost). The same could be done for scotch; we could stop having to bundle it. None of this is critical, though. I'll add it to the long list.

No changes necessary then, for now. Closing.
