Subject: libtool linking in /root/.cpan -- annoying having to run as root to load /root/.cpan/.../.libs
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 3.1k
I'm having a problem with the subversion build process. I have no idea what to pass to configure, but it's clear I need some other argument. I expect this is all due to my irrationally new everything under Archlinux. libtool 2.4.2-2 Maybe it's something else. I'm not really sure what to check. Basically, I get this: perl -MSVN::Core -e 0 Can't load '/usr/local/jperl/5.12.3/arch/auto/SVN/_Core/_Core.so' for module SVN::_Core: libsvn_client-1.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory at /usr/local/jperl/5.12.3/arch/DynaLoader.pm line 200. at /usr/local/jperl/5.12.3/arch/SVN/Base.pm line 59 BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/local/jperl/5.12.3/arch/SVN/Core.pm line 5.

No, sorry. We've struggled with this and similar problems as well. It will not reliably link to the shared lib we're installing. Sometimes it will link to an already installed system library. You can see in inc/My/SVN/Builder.pm what we're doing to install. Any insight would be much appreciated.

Figured it out again. I don't know where you would want to put this in the inc/ build hierarchy, but this will get you linked correctly: sed -i -e s,_libdir\)/libsvn,_libdir\)/,g src/subversion/build-outputs.mk -- If riding in an airplane is flying, then riding in a boat is swimming. 116 jumps, 48.6 minutes of freefall, 92.9 freefall miles.

I really thought that worked. It was something else I did because this doesn't work anymore. Also, it was missing a .*. sed -i -e s,_libdir\)/libsvn.*,_libdir\)/,g Basically, it appeared to be a situation where specifying the .la made it install the .so differently. Now I need to retrace my steps, because it was something I did before that. :p Oh well, tomorrow. -- If riding in an airplane is flying, then riding in a boat is swimming. 116 jumps, 48.6 minutes of freefall, 92.9 freefall miles.

That might point at the problem, but hacking build files doesn't sit well with me. I wonder if there's a configure switch or something us or SVN is doing wrong.

Excellent point. Show quoted text

Clearly. If their ./configure and make isn't installing libraries that are linked correctly, then there's a problem with their distribution. That it hasn't been solved before makes me wonder if it's a new-ish thing in libtool. I went through this with libpbc really briefly, which is why I recall figuring it out before. There, it turned out I just had to run his installer (rather than using /usr/bin/install), although I also figured out the required linking magic. I didn't take notes though. I've actually just been going back and forth between the libpbc sources and the subversion sources in A::S and trying to mimic things from libpbc. I'm not sure the approach is valid though, because I don't think libpbc links against itself like that. On the other hand, I'm quite sure I got the libs to install into /tmp/ correctly a couple times. So I did something that worked. I was so sure it was the mode=install target thing, but that's not working for me anymore, so it was something "that doesn't matter" that I did before that. -- If riding in an airplane is flying, then riding in a boat is swimming. 116 jumps, 48.6 minutes of freefall, 92.9 freefall miles.

This patch is ultimately what I used. It's working for me, but it sucks, and you're not going to like it any more than my other (not working) ideas. I was trying to think of things you could use, ... but it appears to be beyond my skill level. This idea does work, but it won't appear to unless you distclean and rebuild bindings/swig/perl/native after you install-lib the libsvn_*.so suite. I also had to do a for i in Makefile.[a-z]*; do make -f $i; done to get things like SVN::_Ra. This is the most confusing build I've looked into ... but my git-svn works again. I'm glad this ticket is here, if only so I can remember how to get this going again some day when I forget how I did it. -- If riding in an airplane is flying, then riding in a boat is swimming. 116 jumps, 48.6 minutes of freefall, 92.9 freefall miles.

We can reorder the SVN build process, but I'd rather not build code during the Alien-SVN "./Build install" process. Is there some way this could be done *without* first installing the libraries? Show quoted text

Yeah, I'll bet good money if it were to be done today it would be a fair sight simpler. That said, if you want to take a crack at that they probably wouldn't mind, but you'll have to talk with the SVN folks directly about that. We just bundle.

My own workaround is to not use Alien::SVN at all. It is better to use the same source for your "svn" command-line tool and libraries as for the Perl binding. And the Perl bindings to SVN is bundled in the SVN source. So the right thing to do is to use the Perl binding provided as system packages if you use the svn from system packages. So on Debian/Ubuntu I'm just installing the libsvn-perl package to have SVN::Core. -- Olivier Mengué - http://perlresume.org/DOLMEN
