I am writing a wrapper for a library
foo, which contains symbols from another helper library
bar, but does not contain shared object dependencies to
bar. My goal is to build and install both
bar within a single package using BinDeps. BinDeps will successfully build both libs and will find
bar, but keeps failing for
foo due to non-satisfied dependencies.
Provider BinDeps.BuildProcess failed to satisfy dependency - Library foo
This is due to fact that BinDeps performs some checks using
dlopen, which fail since the symbols from
bar are not (yet) available. I could avoid that by loading
bar globally to avoid problems for the checks
Libdl.dlopen(:libbar, Libdl.RTLD_LAZY | Libdl.RTLD_GLOBAL )
however this only works once both libs have already been built.
Similarly even if I prebuild the libs and load
bar, the autogenerated deps.jl will be missing the
I wonder what’s the suggested way of dealing with such a problem?
