Subject [jira] [Created] (HAWQ-1572) Travis CI build failure on master. Thrift/boost incompatibility
Date Fri, 15 Dec 2017 00:47:00 GMT
Shubham Sharma created HAWQ-1572:

             Summary: Travis CI build failure on master. Thrift/boost incompatibility
                 Key: HAWQ-1572
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HAWQ-1572
             Project: Apache HAWQ
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Build
            Reporter: Shubham Sharma
            Assignee: Radar Lei


The travis CI build is failing for master and new commits. The CI is erroring out with

configure: error: thrift is required
The command “./configure” failed and exited with 1 during .

I was able to reproduce this issue and looking at the config.log it looks like it is failing
at the line below while running a conftest.cpp -

/usr/local/include/thrift/stdcxx.h:32:10: fatal error: 'boost/tr1/functional.hpp' file not

The root cause of the problem is compatibility of thrift 0.11 with boost 1.65.1 . Travis recently
upgraded there xcode to 9.2 and list of default packages now contains boost 1.65.1 and thrift

Thrift uses [stdcxx.h|https://github.com/apache/thrift/blob/master/lib/cpp/src/thrift/stdcxx.h]
which includes boost/tr1/functional.hpp library. The support for tr1 has been removed in boost
1.65, see [here|http://www.boost.org/users/history/version_1_65_1.html] under topic “Removed
Since tr1 library is no longer present in boost 1.65, this causes thrift to fail and eventually
./configure fails

As a solution I recommend that we uninstall boost 1.65 and install boost 1.60(the last compatible
build with thrift).

I am not sure if this is a problem with thrift that they are not yet compatible with boost
1.65 yet or a problem with travis ci that they have included two incompatible versions. Will
love to hear community's thoughts on it.
