Tbb disabled causes multiple errors in make px4_sitl jmavsim

I followed steps from here:

Where I got to these steps:

brew unlink tbb
brew install tbb@2020
brew link tbb@2020

tbb@2020 is recently disabled. I was not able to force install. They had a 2021 version, but I got the same errors as below. I eventually just went back to ‘brew install tbb’ since I don’t see any other options.

I continued on with the steps, and eventually got to the “Building the code” page where I was to run

make px4_sitl jmavsim

I received these errors:

make: *** [px4_sitl] Error 1

I tried adding the following to the Makefile but with no changes:

CFLAGS += -Wno-error=strict-prototypes -Wno-error=deprecated-declarations -Wno-error=deprecated-non-prototype
CFLAGS += -Wno-error=missing-parameter-type -Wno-error=unused-but-set-variable

CXXFLAGS += -Wno-error=strict-prototypes -Wno-error=deprecated-declarations
CXXFLAGS += -Wno-error=unused-but-set-variable

I also tried gazebo instead of jmavsim:

make px4_sitl gazebo

but got a bunch of similar strict prototypes errors.

I am building this on a Mac (NOT M1), running Ventura 13.4.

Does anyone know how to suppress these warning/errors to build? I believe the issue is that I have newer gcc/g++ versions, but I’d rather not change the gcc versions on my machine and I currently can’t install docker on this machine due to some restrictions of the network I am on.

I do see CMake files in the build, but the directions said to use make. Is it recommended to use cmake instead? If so, how do I pass it the parameters “px4_sitl” and “jmavsim”?

Well, I ended up fixing it locally. I just followed the errors and added in the voids, and commented out one variable that was assigned but not used. It now seems like it works (at least for building and running the jmavsim stuff). It ended up only being a few items. I apparently can’t attach a file with txt extension, so here is the pasted patch:

Copy and paste that to a file called diff.patch. Then run:

git apply patchfile.patch

It should build then. I now think this is not really related to the tbb as I initially thought, I think this code is just old and was originally compiled with gcc version 8 or 9. Now, the newer versions are stricter on forcing warnings to errors.

But, I still want to know what I am doing wrong that I can’t just follow the directions and build it. So, if anyone sees any issue with the directions as they are listed on the site for MacOS, please let me know!!

Worked like a charm! Thank you.
