Looking at the original test, the above is correct there - it wants to 
avoid messing with PATH on Windows.


Pushed this.

Thanks.

Re: Mac OS X .dylib not working

On 4 Mar 2011, at 03:59, Peter O'Gorman wrote:

 Mac OS X does not care about file name extensions; .dylib is just a 
 convention for native dynamic libraries.
 
 The static linker when it sees a -l flag will look for files beginning with 
 lib and ending in .dylib, .so (though this is recent and perhaps not 
 documented) and .a. So, I think you could say that it cares about file name 
 extensions.

One is free to implement programs that do such things.

 So the wanted behavior is to first try opening a library without adding an 
 extension, and then try out different endings. On Mac OS X, it would be 
 best trying out .dylib first - I haven't seen any other ending in use.
 
 It does seem as though guile should sometimes be trying lt_dlopen() first - 
 then libltdl will attempt to open whatever it's given.

That might be an hack.

  -- the libtool archive extension .la
  -- the extension used for native dynamically loadable modules on the
 host platform, e.g., .so, .sl, etc.
 
 On Mac OS X, libtool's idea of the native dynamically loadable module 
 extension is .so, and it's not going to change.
 
 However, I can see the point that libltdl should try .dylib as well as .so 
 for lt_dlopenext on Mac OS X. I will come up with a patch for that.

The important thing is to try .dylib - all libraries I have sen use it. It can 
of course try .so as well.

Patch. Fails new testcase before (well, new testcase as in copy 
pasted lt_dlopenext testcase and slightly modified it), passes after.

.dylib is tried after .so so there is no potentially surprising change 
in behaviour for existing applications.


Oh, I forgot a NEWS entry, will add:

On Mac OS X .dylib is now tried as well as .so with lt_dlopenext there 
before pushing.

Under OS-X (Leopard and later), the 'dtruss' program can be used to  
see what is really going on.


While at it, I found another problem involving libltdl.7.dylib,  
guile-1.8.7 and lilypond 2.13.7:


When upgrading guile using libtool-2.2.6b, lilypond broke, the one  
which is in an Application distribution:

  /Applications/LilyPond.app/Contents/Resources/bin/guile
It has its own
  /Applications/LilyPond.app/Contents/Resources/lib/libltdl.7.dylib

However, dtruss shows that segmentation fault is caused when calling
  /usr/local/lib/libltdl.7.dylib

When I move this to another name, then lilypond works, but dtruss now  
shows that it calls

  /usr/lib/libltdl.7.dylib

So it seems lilypond never calls its own libltdl.7.dylib.

The problem here, though, is the combination of incompatible versions  
of libltdl.7.dylib in combination with a library search path. If they  
really are incompatible, there seems to be no point in having a  
searchpath.


I think that gcc on Mac OS X makes hardcoded full paths for libraries.  
So libtool would then implement its own library search paths.


Also, it seems having no problem open .dylib files here.

See below. They differ: libltdl.7.dylib current versions 10.0.0 and  
10.1.0.



If you run lilypond with DYLD_PRINT_LIBRARIES=1 set in the environment
does more than one copy of libltdl.7.dylib get loaded?


It just tries to load the one in /usr/local/lib/, which causes  
segmentation fault.



This sounds like a packaging bug to me though, ...


Part if it, at least. There is no point searching for incompatible  
libraries.



...you can probably fix it
with use of install_name_tool(1).


I can pass it on - I'm not a LilyPond developer.


As for your earlier questions about .so and .dylib - On Mac OS X 10.0
and earlier, there was no way to load MH_DYLIB type files (usually
.dylib extensions) at runtime. API was introduced to allow this in  
10.1,
and dlopen() was added in 10.3, rewritten in 10.4 and dlclose()  
actually

removes the image in 10.5, prior to that only files of MH_BUNDLE type
could be unloaded.

When libtool support for Mac OS X was added, there was no way to load
.dylib files, not much software had any knowledge of Mac OS X, and  
quite
a lot of things had hardcoded .so when loading files at runtime,  
so to
accomodate this, .so was chosen as the extension when creating  
loadable

modules (MH_BUNDLE) and .dylib when creating MH_DYLIB. Changing
this now would cause far too many problems.


Not really: 10.4 and earlier are obsolete, and 10.5 is becoming. On  
10.5, just ordinary load is fine.


So just add .dylib to the list of searches.

So, long story short, ltld looks for .so because that is the  
extension

used for loadable modules.


Well, that is not a part of the UNIX standard, and therefore not  
POSIX, which is nowadays a subset.



Guile wants to use its loadable modules as
input to ld, this is not portable to ancient Mac OS X, nor ancient Net
BSD, and possibly other systems, however it seems unlikly to be a  
major

issue.

I think that covers most of the thread, but I admit to now reading all
of it.



If it can't load .dylib files, which now is the normal use, that is a  
bit confusing.

Sorry, I missed most of this thread as I was travelling.

What does otool -L
/Applications/LilyPond.app/Contents/Resources/bin/guile say? Which
libltdl.7.dylib does it list?

If you run lilypond with DYLD_PRINT_LIBRARIES=1 set in the environment
does more than one copy of libltdl.7.dylib get loaded?

This sounds like a packaging bug to me though, you can probably fix it
with use of install_name_tool(1).

As for your earlier questions about .so and .dylib - On Mac OS X 10.0
and earlier, there was no way to load MH_DYLIB type files (usually
.dylib extensions) at runtime. API was introduced to allow this in 10.1,
and dlopen() was added in 10.3, rewritten in 10.4 and dlclose() actually
removes the image in 10.5, prior to that only files of MH_BUNDLE type
could be unloaded.

When libtool support for Mac OS X was added, there was no way to load
.dylib files, not much software had any knowledge of Mac OS X, and quite
a lot of things had hardcoded .so when loading files at runtime, so to
accomodate this, .so was chosen as the extension when creating loadable
modules (MH_BUNDLE) and .dylib when creating MH_DYLIB. Changing
this now would cause far too many problems.

So, long story short, ltld looks for .so because that is the extension
used for loadable modules. Guile wants to use its loadable modules as
input to ld, this is not portable to ancient Mac OS X, nor ancient Net
BSD, and possibly other systems, however it seems unlikly to be a major
issue.

I think that covers most of the thread, but I admit to now reading all
of it.

One can compile with name lookup table and direct jump table. The

 That could be unfortunate, since it means that unlike other Mac

 plugin names to use Foo.quuxplugin type names.  Guile apps would be
 limited to a hardcoded set of suffixes then, right?

Guile doesn’t modify FNAME, it just passes it on to ‘lt_dlopenext ()’.

 Surprisingly, I just noticed that Guile itself doesn’t use the
 ‘-module’ option of Libtool when creating its ‘libguile-srfi-srfi-1’
 module (which is meant to be dlopened *or* directly linked against),
 although this has never caused any problems on OS X.  If you search
 for that in [1], ‘libguile-srfi-srfi-1’ is actually created with
 ‘-dynamiclib’.

 Current versions of Mac OS X can load shared libraries (.dylib) as
 well as the bundle format that seems to have been the original plugin
 form (.so, .bundle, ...).  So in practice, assuming you can dlopen and
 dlclose a shared library works pretty well, though I gather it might
 not have worked as well in earlier releases.

OK.

 But we should also support the format(s) intended for plugin modules
 as well, and the naming conventions (which appear to be somewhat
 varied, and less consistent than on other OSes).

Since libguile-srfi-srfi-1 is intended both to be dlopened and linked
directly against, we’d need to link it twice, once with ‘-module’ and
another one to create the shared library.

I can’t imagine myself tweaking the build system in non-trivial ways to
accommodate old versions of OS X, though...

But dlopen() on Mac OS X can only open files in the native format, which

extension. If it finds a .so file on ELF format, all it does is reporting 
it cannot be opened.


.so doesn't mean ELF format, and on some systems including Mac OS X, 
dynamically linked shared library (e.g., a .dylib file) is not the same 
as dynamically loadable object.  Did you not see my earlier email to you 
and the bug-guile list?


The fact is that currently Guile, which relies on libtool, cannot open .dylib 
files, though it works perfectly if they are renamed .so. As for what

libtool. Also, all new native DLLs (see below) on Mac OS X are named .dylib.

The Mac OS X situation is a bit more complicated than on normal ELF- 
based UNIX systems; shared libraries and dynamically loadable objects  
are not the same thing.  It's easy to assume they're equivalent when  
working mostly on ELF or Windows systems where .so or .dll files work  
for both, but it's not always true.  GNU libtool even has options for  
creating loadable modules as distinct from regular shared libraries.


See for example http://www.finkproject.org/doc/porting/porting.en.html#shared.lib-and-mod 
 for one brief discussion of shared libraries versus bundles on the  
Mac, and how the .so suffix is often used for loadable objects by  
convention in ported UNIX software (not just in fink, but in the OS: / 
usr/lib/pam/*.so, /usr/lib/sasl2/*.so), though I see a lot of  
.bundle names on my system too.  Further confusing the matter:


 * The term bundle seems to be used in Apple documentation both for  
a particular type of file generated by the linker for loadable objects  
-- the linker has different flags for them vs shared libraries -- and  
a directory structure used for distributing a collection of files as  
an application, framework, or plugin.


 * The modern dlopen implementation on the Mac (it wasn't there at  
all in 10.0) seems capable of loading both bundles (the file version  
I think) and regular Mac shared libraries.  In 10.4, dlclose()  
couldn't unload a dynamic library but could unload a bundle; in 10.5,  
it can unload both.  So it's unclear how relevant the distinction  
between loadable objects and shared libraries is any more, at  
least if you're targeting 10.5 or 10.6 as your minimum required OS  
version.  One distinction I haven't (yet) seen mentioned as having  
gone away is that bundles can reference symbols from the main  
application, but dynamic libraries cannot.


See also http://lists.apple.com/archives/darwin-dev/2008/Dec/msg00045.html 
 ...


http://developer.apple.com/Mac/library/documentation/DeveloperTools/Conceptual/MachORuntime/Reference/reference.html 
 describes the Mach-O file types, and says .bundle is the  
conventional suffix for plugins.


So, in short, one could argue that looking only for .so for  
dynamically loadable objects *is* conforming to (one set of) standards  
for the Mac, annoying though it may be.


On Mac OS X, it should probably look for .dylib first, and  
perhaps .so for backwards compatibility.


I think perhaps it should try without a suffix (in case the  
application code specifies it), then both of these and maybe also  
.bundle, though I don't have a strong sense which order they should  
be tried in.

I think your example shold work, but it's something that's totally
handled by libltdl. Are you using the latest libltdl?

Note also that libltdl's error messages often aren't the most
appropriate, due to another bug:

This (often) makes all failures come out as file not found.

Sure, it would be best to only load .dylib, but I suspect that there  
might be .dylib libraries with the .so extension on Mac OS X, due to  
past practice. Then such programs will suddenly break. One program  
using Guile is LilyPond, and I have a vague memory of they mentioning

If .dylib fails and it tries .so which isn't on the .dylib format,

I think your example shold work, but it's something that's totally
handled by libltdl. Are you using the latest libltdl?


I have now update to latest
  libtool --version
  ltmain.sh (GNU libtool) 2.2.6b
and the README says that libltdl should be a part of it; however, I  
just made an install of the libtools package. I also re-unpacked  
guile-1.8.7, and './configure  make  make install'.


There is no change: .dylib fails; .so works.


Note also that libltdl's error messages often aren't the most
appropriate, due to another bug:

 http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.gnu.libtool.general/10621

This (often) makes all failures come out as file not found.


Since it works if I change to .so, it seems to only be that file name  
problem.


So try using a newer libltdl, and if that fails, bug-libt...@gnu.org  
is

probably the place to go.


Ah - list chasing. :-)
