Fixes compilation error on std=gnu++14 #62

wants to merge 1 commit into from


Copy link

Motivation and Context

On std=gnu++14, I get the following compile error:

[30/10/44  11% :: 8.5] Building CXX object src/Corrade/PluginManager/CMakeFiles/CorradePluginManagerObjects.dir/AbstractPlugin.cpp.o

This PR explicitly initializes configuration, fixing this error. On this PR, I can successfully build corrade (and all of magnum for that matter) with std=gnu++14

How to repro

mkdir build && cd build
cmake -DCMAKE_CXX_FLAGS="-std=gnu++14" ..

Hi, thank you!

One very weird request before I am able to look at this -- there's this very nasty security feature bug in Travis CI where if you set it up for your fork on while I have it for my repo on, I will stop getting notifications on my own builds and start getting notifications from your builds instead, like this:


(Also note there are no Travis checks displayed below this PR.) The only solution to this I know is either:

  • if you either fully remove the Travis setup for Corrade from your account
  • or you remove it from and set it up on instead

This is a very nasty bug, sorry about the inconvenience. I didn't have the nerve to report it to Travis themselves because their issue tracker is the worst.

Merged as 8270822, thank you! While testing locally, this happened only with Clang, GCC 8.2 with -std=gnu++14 had no problem with the original code.
