Troubleshoot Building Orx

This page is a random collection of tips for when you have difficulty building Orx.

.../memory/orxMemory.c:47:20: fatal error: malloc.c: No such file or directory

You need to run / setup.bat to get the Orx dependencies.

This will occur if:

  1. You never ran setup before, or:
  2. You've done a git pull for the latest and forgot to run setup again for the latest dependencies.

The setup command should be automatic when first cloning. Try running ./ or setup.bat again.

No generated Windows folder after or setup.bat

If you haven't updated your Orx library in a while, this could happen, but is exceedingly rare. Did the other “Windows” folders generate under tools/orxCrypt? Maybe yes? Maybe no. Regardless, use git to clean up your unused files and folder under orx/ and then setup again. You should be back up and running again.

No output on mingw

For specific mingw issues, see the troubleshooter on this page.

Just some glitch out there in the matrix, like a network timeout. Just try ./ again.
