Linux version of Swift doesn't build


(Shyamal Chandra) #1

Hi,

Why did you create a Linux version of Swift when it doesn't even build properly?

Apple ‎Swift‬ Programming Language source code cannot even build
properly with a major error in 16.04 of Ubuntu Linux. Why make an
open-source version for Linux when it is not even supported by anyone?

Why have a build-script when it is not even documented well enough?

https://bugs.swift.org/browse/SR-1998

Could you explain?
Thanks!

Best,

Hi Shyamal,

Have you tried running the build script with the -h option, like so:

$ ./swift/utils/build-script -h

This will give you all of the options and intro to how to use the build script. I don’t use Ubuntu, so I can’t say why Swift won’t build on Ubuntu, but I was able to build it on Fedora 23 and now building it on ArchLinux.

Best,
Farhan
