Getting errors while compiling?

I am getting these errors when I am compiling my code. I have all the headers under user/include

g++ -Ip_appmanager/inc -Icore/inc p_appmanager/src/appmanager_process.cpp -o p_appmanager/obj/appmanager -lpthread -lparser

make: *** [all] Error 1

my kernel version is “Linux amit-bhaira 3.8.0-26-generic #38-Ubuntu SMP Mon Jun 17 21:46:08 UTC 2013 i686 i686 i686 GNU/Linux” . Same code is running on another linux machine.

please help me to fix this problem.

Thanks.

Solution #1:

Add #include <unistd.h>

It works on other platforms because they are compiling with an old version of gcc (<4.7) which accidentally included unistd.h in some system headers.

Solution #2:

From the fork(2) man page:

SYNOPSIS
       #include <unistd.h>

From the exec(3) man page:

SYNOPSIS
       #include <unistd.h>

From the getpid(2) man page:

SYNOPSIS
       #include <sys/types.h>
       #include <unistd.h>

From the sleep(3) man page:

SYNOPSIS
       #include <unistd.h>

Solution #3:

You have forgotten #include <unistd.h> in your program.
