I was very interested in porting SFML.jl (from nice work of zyedidia,
to current Julia, because it is not working for Julia 0.7 (and I like to use SFML in my programming introductory courses). I have ported all code in
(I will do a PR when it is finished).
However, while it install the package without problem, at least in my computer (after many changes), I have problem when library was loaded. I know there was a change in usage of Libdl.dlopen (https://github.com/JuliaLang/julia/issues/26557) and I think it is related but I have not idea how I could fix it. When I run the dlopen manually “julia SFML.jl”
(or do Libdl.dlopen(“libcsfml-graphics”, Libdl.RTLD_GLOBAL) in the REPL)
it is loaded nicely, however, when I try to run an example, it said:
ErrorException(“could not load library “libcsfml-system”\nlibsfml-system.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory”)
ERROR: LoadError: error compiling Type: error compiling Type: could not load library “libcsfml-graphics”
My version of SFML is working with my previously installed SFML.
I can compiling and running programs in C++ and even Rust without problem, so the libraries are installed.
PS: If anyone is interested in porting it, you can say and work together :-). I think SFML.jl working could be a good example of using Julia as a general programming language.
