Description Jonathan Gray 2013-04-08 14:18:55 UTC
Many of the Mesa Makefiles now contain a comment like:

# Provide compatibility with scripts for the old Mesa build system for
# a while by putting a link to the driver into /lib of the build tree

Followed by then explicitly assuming libraries work like they do in

../../../bin/install-sh -c -d ../../../lib
ln -f .libs/libglapi.so.0.0.0 ../../../lib/libglapi.so.0.0.0
ln: .libs/libglapi.so.0.0.0: No such file or directory

The .libs dir already contains a libglapi.so.0.0 here.  There is no symbol versioning on OpenBSD, and libraries use just so.major.minor

Would it be possible to remove this 'compatibility with scripts' so Mesa can build on more platforms?

Hi Jonathan

Just pushed a series that handles the symbolic links correctly, and makes building mesa a bit friendlier to non-linux plarforms.

Give it a try and feel free to reopen if you're still having symlink related issues.

    automake: create compat symlinks only for linux systems
Comment 2 Jonathan Gray 2014-03-11 13:46:19 UTC
Hi Emil,

I saw your series of patches on the list and pulled them into my branch with some other fixes required to build with and I could indeed complete a build.

Unfortunately since then the way libraries are created has been changed to use an ld option that isn't present in the version of binutils included in OpenBSD (or the one in FreeBSD).  --dynamic-list seems to have been introduced in binutils 2.18 from what I can make out.

Comment 3 Emil Velikov 2014-03-11 13:59:13 UTC
Kind of unrelated to the symlinking but afaics you have three options

* revert commit 8c136b53b79
* update binutils
* nag the patch author to add a *BSD quirk :-)

I'm not entirely sure why *BSD are still stuck with binutils 2.17 (afaics released Aug2011), but I'm guessing that that the quickest solution/workaround would be just to revert the commit locally.
