Tarball with build logs after patching
After applying the patch the error message is different, see attached build logs.
I managed to get the build process working under Cygwin. I am now trying to make sure that the application that consumes libtalloc can find it and then I'll upload the patch.
I apologize for a delay, I've been temporarily overwhelmed by other
things im my life.
Here are my findings about compiling talloc on cygwin.
It turns out that if you want to consume shared object (DLL library)
in cygwin you need to have it saved as two copies. One copy should be
called cygtalloc-2.dll and this is the one that will be used at
runtime to call talloc functions. The other copy will be used by gcc
at compile-time or link-time. To the best of my knowledge, the second
copy can be named in many ways, it can be cygtalloc.dll or
cygtalloc.so or even libtalloc.so, any of these seems to work fine.
Since talloc's build script tries to build two libraries: talloc and
pytalloc-utils, and the later one depends on and being linked against
the former, gcc expects to find cygtalloc.dll, but the build script
saves the talloc so as cygtalloc-2.dll.
The proper solution would be to change the build file to create a
symlink cygtalloc.dll-> cygtalloc-2.dll and cygpytalloc-util.dll ->
cygpytalloc-util-2.dll in bin/default directory.
So far I have come up with the following workaround script:
mkdir -p bin/default
ln -s cygtalloc-2.dll bin/default/cygtalloc.dll
ln -s cygpytalloc-util-2.dll bin/default/cygpytalloc-util.dll
cp bin/default/cygtalloc-2.dll /usr/bin/
(I hope the script is readable and the bug tracker didn't reformat it.)
This script seems to do the job of building and installing talloc on
cygwin. Do you think you could include this script in talloc repo?
