digitalmars.D - Dub and posix

Looking at the DStep compilation issue, it transpires that Debian and
Fedora need different linker flags even though they are both posix.
Does anyone know how to specify liner flags at this level of
granularity?

It turns out this is a frustrating issue in every build system :-(

What happens if one specifies a non-existing path for a flag like -L? Does the linker ignore that or will it cause an error? If it's ignored, then I guess it wouldn't be a problem to add it for all Posix systems. A bit ugly though. -- /Jacob Carlborg

Linker ignores.

I am just trying this out. I added -L/usr/lib64/llvm in the relevant line of dub.json and everything seems to work nicely on Fedora. Sadly on Debian there is no version independent location for LLVM as far as I can tell. "lflags-posix": ["-lclang", "-rpath", ".", "-L.", "-L/usr/lib64/llvm", "-L/= usr/lib/llvm-3.7/lib"], Works on both Fedora and Debian, but it hardwires 3.7. --=20 Russel. =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3D=3D Dr Russel Winder t: +44 20 7585 2200 voip: sip:russel.winder ekiga.n= et 41 Buckmaster Road m: +44 7770 465 077 xmpp: russel winder.org.uk London SW11 1EN, UK w: www.russel.org.uk skype: russel_winder

 Works on both Fedora and Debian, but it hardwires 3.7.
And a glob (*) would most likely not work? -- /Jacob Carlborg

if you tried something like that, you would get all present LLVM versions in the path which would likely lead to some chaos. --=20 Russel. =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3D=3D Dr Russel Winder t: +44 20 7585 2200 voip: sip:russel.winder ekiga.n= et 41 Buckmaster Road m: +44 7770 465 077 xmpp: russel winder.org.uk London SW11 1EN, UK w: www.russel.org.uk skype: russel_winder

I guess they use pkg-config? Not sure if you can use that in dub...

Hmm, true. I was thinking that one would only have one version installed. But that might not be the case. -- /Jacob Carlborg
