Help Needed with Building Plasma Client/ Server...

Postby lizzie_tsai » Wed Mar 10, 2021 3:20 pm

I'm trying to build a server for the Plasma client. I am not a developer (just a fan of Myst), so I really don't know what to do.

I'm following the instructions shown here: https://github.com/H-uru/Plasma

I got to the sixth step of the instructions, but then I get errors. It also says, when I click x86-release: "The CMake.txt file is not available in the build directory. Only the variables defined for this configuration are displayed."

I'm at a loss. I feel like I've tried everything. And, very clearly, this is the solution I've been looking for. If anyone could help me with this I would be so grateful.

OK, I think I understand what's happening here... Step 3 might be a little misleading. It says, "choose the folder where you cloned the repository" -- what it neglects to mention is that git will clone the repository into a folder called Plasma. So if you run the git clone command in in C:\dev, you would need to choose the folder C:\dev\Plasma.

Thanks so much for getting back to me! :D

Yes; I'm selecting the Plasma folder. But I don't know where to go from the step I'm stuck on.

Here's a link to a screenshot: C:/Users/Elizabeth/OneDrive/Pictures/request.png

Could you share the OneDrive link to your screenshot? What you pasted is where it is on your computer, which I don't have access to 8-)

Could you expand the content of the "Error" at the bottom? vcpkg.cmake waits until the very end to exit with errors, so I'm not sure what it's complaining about :(

Like I said, I'm not a developer. This is my first time using this platform, so it's pretty much just trial and error.... If I mention a problem that has an obvious solution, that's why.
