[mapguide-users] building 64bit openmapguide on rhel 5.4

Sorry for late response, KFW is right, you can remove the IFDEF and you will be able to compile on RH 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5, but the IFDEF was added to implement that functionalities, so my advice is to consider to do something "alternative".

I don't know why, but the functionalities were implemented in the IFDEF in more recent releases of the DWF ToolKit (I suppose that Adobe decided to support 64 bit only in recent versions, so the ifdef in the preliminary releases was left intentionally blank, to prepare the code for new developments).

Here there is a license issue, because I'm not sure that can be used in production, anyway an alternative (and valuable) solution is to upgrade the version of the DWF ToolKit in the MapGuide (if I'm not wrong, the first version supporting 64x should be 7.3.x). You just need to untar the package in the right directory, the makefile/build file has minor changes and will work perfectly.
In this case you will see that the compilation will work successfully.

As it is recalled in many other parts, I suggest to do a make clean and recompile everything. There is no issue about compatibility with recent kernels and/or glibc libs, I also crosschecked this.

The advantage is that the code defined on that variables, is implemented in the newest version, and if you have any problem, at least you know that the toolkit is consistent.

Just my suggestion, let us know if you succeeded!

Hi Adam,
Stefano is correct about removing the #ifdef statements in both
Timer.cpp and Core.cpp.

Remove all of the following #ifdef, #else, and #endif (making sure you
remove all of the WIN32 code that is inside the _DWFCORE_WIN32_SYTEM
code blocks:

#error    Cannot continue - implementation not provided for this
hardware configuration

The only code that should be left is the code that was inside the
_DWFCORE_LINUX_SYSTEM code blocks, some of which you updated for 64-bit
