Error while building multiple configurations

Create issue
Issue #117 resolved
Erik Schnetter created an issue

I wanted to build multiple configurations at once with the command

./simfactory/sim build sim-debug sim

sim-debug is a debug configuration, sim is optimised. SimFactory built sim-debug, then aborted with the error:

optionlist is: /Users/eschnett/EinsteinToolkit-hg/configs/sim/OptionList Error: pattern '^\sDEBUG\s=.*$' exists already

It assumes that SimFactory doesn't properly distinguish between the different build options of the different configurations.

    We could just declare this as missing feature, and set it to wishlist - or declare that 'sim build' only takes one argument and then we can remove the ticket altogether. Nobody really seemed to care within the last three years, and a ticket that is dormant for so long isn't helping.

    Worksforme. Not sure when this was fixed but already git hash a672575 "This is a major commit. Please test and get back to me if there are (and there probably will be) issues." of simfactory2 from ~8 years ago lets me compile both of them. That commit introduces a separate DefineDatabase in To document what I did:

    echo >
    simfactory/bin/sim build --debug null-debug
    simfactory/bin/sim build null
    simfactory/bin/sim build null-debug null
