Mini_suffix and Freebsd

unsupported-install

(Roman Teuk) #1

Hi! I use Discourse from sources on FreeBSD. Everything was file until I upgraded it to latest version which uses ‘mini_suffix’ gem. Seems that ‘mini_suffux’ includes precompiled libpsl library for Linux and OSX only.

/usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/2.3/gems/ffi-1.9.18/lib/ffi/library.rb:147:in `block in ffi_lib': Could not open library '/usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/2.3/gems/mini_suffix-0.3.0/vendor/libpsl.so': Shared object "libc.so.6" not found, required by "libpsl.so". (LoadError)

Is there any chance to make it working on FreeBSD?

Can you compile and supply the dep yourself? Also, you should be using Ruby 2.4 on latest Discourse.

I have installed dns/libpsl port and replaced vendor/libpsl.so inside gem with /usr/local/lib/libpsl.so.
It seems to work now.
Thank you

Our intention is for the gem to always work great BSDs, and PRs to the gem directly to improve its compatibility would be greatly appreciated.

Not vendoring Linux-specific shared libraries would probably be a winning first step…

Yeah the first step here is following a pattern more similar to what libv8 gem does where we push a “general” gem that compiles from source and then a platform specific gems for each platform.
