./configure --disable-w32threads doesn't check for presence of pthreads

Reported by: rogerdpack Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: build system
Version: unspecified Keywords: win
Cc: Blocked By:
Blocking: Reproduced by developer: no
Analyzed by developer: no

Description

Summary of the bug: $title

How to reproduce:

./configure --disable-w32threads # in a mingw environment, that doesn't have pthreads library

output:

LD ffmpeg_g.exe
ffmpeg.o: In function `input_thread':
/home/rdp/dev/ffmpeg-windows-build-helpers/sandbox/win32/ffmpeg_git/ffmpeg.c:2568: undefined reference to `_imppthread_mutex_lock'

Is this expected? I thought it would check for build-ability.
Thanks!

When reporting linking problems, please always run make several times (it should always show the same error), then run "make V=1" and post the complete, uncut console output of the last "make V=1" run (please do not post the complete, uncut output of an earlier make run).

Please also post the part of config.log beginning with "check_func pthread_create" and ending with "check_lib math.h sin -lm"

Here's my attempt (basically removing libpthread.a from my system).

Do you know why the error message is different than in your original report?

comment:5 Changed 4 years ago by reimar

You configure output shows that linking against pthread is working just fine, why does it suddenly stop working while linking ffmpeg.exe?

Version 0, edited 4 years ago by reimar (next)

comment:6 follow-up: Changed 4 years ago by rogerdpack

My latest guess is that configure does this test compile:

extern int pthread_create();
int main(void){ pthread_create(); }

then compiles it like $ gcc -c input_filename -o output.o

which happily creates output.o (but output.o would fail at link time since libpthread.a library is absent).

I believe my initial report was reporting that I had configured it without passing the right compiler directive flags to *use* libpthread.a correctly, the second report was when I had no libpthread.a file present on the system at all. So that's why the 2 messages differ--they both had broken pthread libraries (or absent), but they were broken in slightly different ways.
HTH.

Your config.log output above shows that configure does link pthreads:
$ gcc -pthread -o ffconf.iBCSJu0K.exe /tmp/ffconf.pdlULg0G.o (simplified)

I believe my initial report was reporting that I had configured it without passing the right compiler directive flags to *use* libpthread.a correctly, the second report was when I had no libpthread.a file present on the system at all.

It is not a good idea to change the report in the middle of the ticket.
Please elaborate which is the (bottom of the) output of:
$ make distclean && ./configure --disable-w32threads && make ffmpeg; make V=1 ffmpeg

comment:8 follow-up: Changed 4 years ago by rogerdpack

If I remove the file "libpthread.a" from my system, then the output is

  /home/rogerdpack/dev/ffmpeg-windows-build-helpers/sandbox/mingw-w64-i686/lib/gcc/i686-w64-mingw32/4.7.1/../../../../i686-w64-mingw32/bin/ld: cannot find -lpthread

Could you post to me the exact line you are seeing from config.log that shows it 'succeeding' so I can check it? (my thought is that it will have a "-c" in it, which means it happily creates a .o file, thinking that linking will later work--it doesn't). So basically what we have here is a *freaky* case where gcc responds to "-pthread" but doing so doesn't actually give you pthreads, is my guess. FWIW.

comment:10 Changed 4 years ago by rogerdpack

Ok I think I may have pasted a poor config.log file initially, my fault, and my apologies.

The specific issue I will address is if there is "no" libpthread.a on the system. I'll focus for that now (the headers may be there, however). So here is the output, starting over:

So, after removing libpthread.a, and then configuring and building ffmpeg with --disable-w32threads, I get this error at link time:

I think I copied and pasted it in there ok. It appears to find the file "pthread.h" but the linking tests all fail, but I would be happy to be proven wrong.
Thanks!

  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed

If you want to reopen this ticket, please provide the following:

  • The exact configure line you are using including its output until (and including) the line starting with "makeinfo enabled".
  • The complete, uncut output of "make V=1" (including this command) after running make before (at least twice) and getting a linking failure.
  • You may be asked to provide an excerpt of config.log, if you prefer attach the complete file.

comment:12 Changed 4 years ago by reimar

You're making this very confusing by reporting a new issue with each post.
If you know exactly what you want to report, IMHO please open a new issue, this one is just too confusing.
However it seems like FFmpeg as desired by you does not use pthreads anymore.
But since you compiled libvpx against pthreads it has become unusable.
Since you didn't provide a full config.log I can't say why it decides to use the broken libvpx and whether that should be considered a bug.

comment:13 Changed 4 years ago by rogerdpack

Ok, before filing a new post, as a point of reference, if I'm compiling for windows, and I pass configure "--disable-w32threads" and have no pthreads, should configure fail? Or does ffmpeg have some other option (like "disabling" threads) that it just uses in that case?
Thanks.
