Hi, I saw the same issue/crash on my machine using ghc 7.6.3.
I just build a "perf" build of GHC-head with "85a9e2468dc74b9e5ccde0dd61be86219fd323a2" as the latest commit. Now running, I get: 1) > cabal install bindings-glfw 2) > ghci 3) ghci> :m Bindings.GLFW 4) ghci> Bindings.GLFW.c'glfwInit 5) ghci> 1 And doing: 1.) > cabal install GLFW-b 2.) > ghci -package GLFW-b 3.) ghci> import Graphics.UI.GLFW as GLFW 4.) ghci> GLFW.init 5.) ghci> True My platform: - OSX 10.8.4 - ghc(i) 7.7.20130915 - cabal 126.96.36.199 (using 1.18.0 of the Cabal library) - xcode cltools 4.6.2 So it seems that the new ghci linking infrastructure fixes things Cheers, Christiaan On Sep 14, 2013, at 9:00 PM, Jan-Philip Loos <maxda...@gmail.com> wrote: >> What I do for GLFW is use a dylib, then you don't rely on GHCi's static-ish >> linker. >> The only wrinkle is figuring out where you want the dylib. >> I think homebrew will put one in /usr/local/lib, which works out nicely, but >> they don't have GLFW 3 yet. >> Another option is to build the dylib yourself from the GLFW source bundled >> with the GLFW-b package, then tell cabal where to find it. > > Hi, > for me the problem relocates now to the "bindings-glfw" package, since > the native bindings moved to this package and are wrapped up with > "glfw-b". > > My way to the same exception already mentioned by Brian Lewis: > 1) > cabal install bindings-glfw > 2) > ghci > 3) ghci> :m Bindings.GLFW > 4) ghci> Bindings.GLFW.c'glfwInit > 5) ghci terminates with exception: *** Terminating app due to uncaught > exception 'NSInvalidArgumentException', reason: '-[NSAutoreleasePool > init]: unrecognized selector sent to instance 0x7fc443c01b30' > > Anthony Cowley mentioned to use ghci with GLFW as a dylib, I have no > clue how to do this.
