Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

How to control FixDeps build step


I'm building a plugin for Unreal and whenever I alter the plugin code I get FixDeps:

 UnrealBuildTool.exe MyProj Linux Development -project=MyProj.uproject -editorrecompile -progress -noubtmakefiles -canskiplink
 Performing 3 actions (4 in parallel)
 [1/3] Compile Vica.cpp
 [2/3] Link libUE4Editor-Vica.so
 [3/3] FixDeps UE4Editor
 Fixing libUE4Editor-Landscape.so
 Fixing libUE4Editor-UnrealEd.so
 Fixing libUE4Editor-GraphEditor.so
 (other 'Fixing's)

If I don't touch my code, UBT doesn't involve FixDeps, since I specified -canskiplink option.

I want to control FixDeps step because, in my belief, the editor doesn't depend on my plugin and therefore I don't need to re-link libUE4Editor-* libs.

How can I do it?

Product Version: UE 4.8

Could you check (by doing ldd on the affected libraries) that they don't link against your .so? Also, does your library name appear among the ones being fixed?

 $ ldd libUE4Editor-Landscape.so libUE4Editor-UnrealEd.so libUE4Editor-GraphEditor.so libUE4Editor-PropertyEditor.so libUE4Editor-SourceControl.so libUE4Editor-Kismet.so libUE4Editor-BlueprintGraph.so libUE4Editor-KismetCompiler.so libUE4Editor-MovieSceneTools.so libUE4Editor-AIModule.so libUE4Editor-AITestSuite.so libUE4Editor-MaterialUtilities.so libUE4Editor-Niagara.so libUE4Editor-UMG.so libUE4Editor-CollisionAnalyzer.so libUE4Editor-LogVisualizer.so | grep libUE4Editor-Vica.so

My lib doesn't appear among fixed libraries.

Hi Dmitry,

Is there any progress in this question? Do you know how to completely control this process?

Could you please paste .Build.cs of your plugin, or at least list all the engine modules it depends upon?

avatar image duburlan Jun 30 '15 at 07:42 AM

I have several modules in my project, so all the modules project depends on are: Core, Json, Engine, Sockets, UnrealEd, Networking, Media.

FixDeps runs even though the project is up to date. What does this step do? Why is it necessary?
