[Trilinos-Users] [EXTERNAL] Problem configuring C++ 11 on Visual Studio 12 (2013) and some mingw fixes in a patch

Kokkos doesn't build with any version of Visual Studio (and several other packages in Trilinos as well).  That compiler does not support SFINAE.  As a work-around, people have successfully used the Intel compilers within Visual Studio.

Thanks.  That helps.

Now I am up to:

C:\winsame\cary\vorpalall-vs12\builds\trilinos-12.0.1\packages\kokkos\core\src\impl\Kokkos_AllocationTracker.cpp(126) : error C3861: 'atomic_fetch_sub': identifier not found

Is Kokkos unix-centric?  Did I invoke its build somehow incorrectly?

BTW, attached is a patch we used to get trilinos to build
with mingw at one point.  I have not tried a mingw build in a while,

Try adding

  -DTrilinos_CXX11_FLAGS=" "

(note the single space).

We will add " " as one of the set of flags to try.

cmake fails at

CMake Error at cmake/tribits/core/package_arch/TribitsCXX11Support.cmake:148 (MESSAGE):^M
  Error, a set of standard compiler flags cannot be found such that this C++^M

But afaik, VS-12 needs no special flags.  So the logic in
TribitsCXX11Support.cmake of


will fail, as that variable should be empty for VS12.
