Hello again,

In the long run it would make sense to fix
source/aclocal.m4
or so.

I now use
export STRIP="strip -u -r"
but that's super easy to forget.

Hello all,

I have just updated the tl2018 pretest. This bug is still present. I am not sure if the update process has not fixed this or this is still present upstream.

I have rsynced tlprest and then run in the tlpretest directory

tlmgr --repository $PWD update --all

Shouldn't this fix the luatex binary?

I'm not aware of anyone attempting to fix
source/aclocal.m4
so far. If you contribute the patch for that, this will be the best
and most lost-term future-proof solution :)

Patrick
Only if Dick uses
export STRIP="strip -u -r"
when he builds the binaries.

Since you are in the testing mode right now: can you please do me a
favour and test the luatex binary from x86_64-darwinlegacy to confirm
whether that one works as expected? (You can get it in the subversion
repository of texlive or on the tlpretest repository, but it needs to
be extracted manually or you would need to install an additional
platform.)

Thank you,
Mojca

Thanks for confirmation.

In the short term it's probably easiest if Dick defines STRIP and
uploads new binaries. In the (not so) long term the sources should be
fixed.

Mojca,

The bad news is that I DO use

export STRIP="strip -u -r"

when I compile the MacTeX binaries.

These binaries are then uploaded by Karl to svn, and later used to construct both BasicTeX
and MacTeX.

Now that I've heard that tl2018 will go into freeze. Is this bug fixed yet?

Does it make sense to try again?

Patrick and Mojca,

Let's confirm that I'm compiling in the correct way. I don't retype commands; instead I have a script and copy lines from this script. Thus I can explain exactly how I build TeX Live:

cd
cd texlive2018dev/source
STRIP="strip -u -r" .
/Build --enable-xindy CLISP=/Users/koch/clisp/clisp-build/clisp

If this what you expect should work, or not quite right?

Patrick,

I need a complete example to test lua on TeXLive-2018. I recovered your example file "test.tex" from an earlier item in this chain. It requires "luasql.sqlite3" so I downloaded sqlite3.so and put it in a subdirectory
luasql inside the folder with test.tex. After that, the example typesets until it reports

LuaSQL: no such table: people

Indeed, here is the current full log:

I found an example from last year due to Patrick. Unfortunately, this requires me to compile a library on a machine with homebrew and extra lua libraries. Last year, Patrick actually provided the library to us for free:

"(the lib.so is available at
http://download.speedata.de/private/lib.so
with a MD5 of 9ce2444145108511b2f678b4d22bd777)
*

but this no longer exists.

Maybe Patrick could make it exist again.

Folks,

I tried my best to make other people do my work for me. But no takers.

So just now, I did a careful search of the computer used last year to construct MacTeX-2017 and found the example of lualatex calling a library lib.so and getting a string "Hello world."

Last year's example runs correctly on the lualatex in my TeX Live 2018. But that is not a surprise because I compiled TeX Live again yesterday using the command

extern STRIP="strip -u -r"
./Build --enable-xindy CLISP=/Users/koch/clisp/clisp-build/clisp

Moreover, I looked carefully at the build instructions used to make MacTeX-2017, and the word "extern" is there.
But somehow this word didn't make it to MacTeX-2018. It is missing in several different places. I'll fix this before bed.

------------------

None of this has been contributed to Karl, but immediately after writing this note, I'll do that. Therefore, if we are lucky, tomorrow's update for the Mac will update luatex and fix this bug. If we are not lucky, that will happen on Friday.

Thanks to Mojca and Patrick for pushing.

In the previous message, "extern" should, of course, be "export". The evil Gods are standing over my shoulder, and they saw one last chance.
