Failed to build on Ubuntu 14.04: static_assert failed

Hi,

I tried to build the Unreal 4.8 from source on Ubuntu 14.04, but got tons of errors.

I have no idea how to modify what files to fix these issues.

Can anyone give me some advice?

Thanks!

It appears that you’re running a 32-bit version of Ubuntu. Although games can be made in Unreal for 32-bit operating systems, the editor only runs (and I guess compiles) under a 64-bit operating system.

Unfortunately, the easiest way to resolve this issue (to my knowledge) is to pick up and install a 64-bit version of Ubuntu.
