C++ Project Cannot Have Makefile Generated Automatically? [message #912652] Thu, 13 September 2012 23:21 Go to next message

So I have read:
http://www.eclipse.org/forums/index.php/m/803058/
http://www.eclipse.org/forums/index.php/m/692629/
http://www.eclipse.org/forums/index.php/mv/msg/174901/557137/

The picture attached in the first link is what I see on my screen right now.

Here is what I did:
- use subclipse to import a folder from my svn repository
- with the checkout wizard, I chose "empty C/C++ project"
- I disabled "build automatically"
If I hit the "build" button, it says:
16:16:43 **** Build of configuration Build (GNU) for project native ****
make all
make: *** No rule to make target `all'. Stop.

16:16:43 Build Finished (took 57ms)

Then, I found that I can't ask Eclipse CDT to "generate makefile automatically" in project->properties->builder settings as it is greyed out.

Then, I created a new "makefile project with existing code" project in another workspace to point back to the C++ project above, then I can build correctly.

How come I can't manage my build in Eclipse Juno as I did in Eclipse Galileo?

What's the proper way to checkout a folder and mark the project as a C++ project with eclipse able to generate make file automatically?

Thanks in advance.

I am using g++ to build on my centos 6 if it matters.

You must use the "External Builder" (see first screenshot)

Before you ask
- search this forum
- see the FAQ http://wiki.eclipse.org/CDT/User/FAQ
- google

Thanks for your reply.
Unfortunately, the "build type" is also greyed out, so I can't choose "external builder" either.
Any idea?

One more thing I tried: checked out the svn project as a C++ "makefile project with existing code" project.

But the result is the same -- hit build button and it says "make: *** No rule to make target `all'. Stop.", and project->properties->builder settings and project->properties->build type are greyed out.

Any idea?
