Subject [jira] Updated: (COUCHDB-562) link couchjs with bound libmozjs
Date Sat, 10 Apr 2010 09:05:51 GMT


Dominique Leuenberger a.k.a DimStar updated COUCHDB-562:

    Attachment: couchdb-mozjs-rpath.patch

I'm the openSUSE packager for couchdb and we ran into the same problem. I created a patch
(attached) but it is not generic enough yet.

The best option actually would be to properly use pkg-config: there all the information required
to properly link to mozjs would be documented.
$> pkg-config --libs mozilla-js
-Wl,-rpath,/usr/lib64/xulrunner-1.9.2 -L/usr/lib64/xulrunner-devel- -lmozjs -lplds4
-lplc4 -lnspr4 -lpthread -ldl

Nevertheless, the attached patch can be applied by distros needing it for now, it injects
the rpath only where needed (already better than LD_RUN_PATH)

> If you build the couchdb from the source with a prefix set and --with-js-[lib|include]
option the resulting couchjs programm in <prefix>/lib/couchdb/bin/couchjs does not know
where to find the specified which was specified in with-js-lib. This causes that
quite all test will fail. 
> To fix this the rpath has to setup during the compile. I don't had a look where to do
> but a small shell wrapper fix it also
