#248 closed defect (fixed)

Readline egg will not build without libtermcap

Reported by: ewfalor Owned by: felix winkelmann
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: extensions Version: 4.5.0
Keywords: readline Cc:
Estimated difficulty:


Running chicken-install readline fails with the following error message:

installing readline: ...

/usr/local/stow/chicken-4.5.0/bin/csi -bnq -setup-mode -e "(require-library setup-api)" -e "(import setup-api)" -e "(extension-name-and-version '(\"readline\" \"\"))" /tmp/chicken-install-216.tmp/readline/readline.setup

It appears that the problem is with the check-rllibs syntax in readline.setup. Instead of trying the next combination of -l flags, it completely bails out.

Thanks for reporting this. The setup script was indeed incorrect and has been fixed (hopefully) in r18216. A new version has been tagged and should be available now.
Should there still be problems, please reopen the ticket.

There is still a problem with the setup script. rl-extralib is now a string value, not a list. The rest of the setup script needs to be modified to treat it as a string. The attached patch does so.

See r18220. Sorry for the dumb mistake.
