There is no dependency on libreadline. We don't use it, and couldn't use it regardless since it's GPL and the FSO code isn't GPL compatible. If there is an issue then it's on your side, with it being a 3rd party dependency or something.

Attach your config.log and we should be able to find out for sure what wants it.

Ok, I attached the log. And here's the message from compiler:

Seems like the lua_readline() define calls readline()?

Edit: fs2_open revision 4602


taylor (administrator)

Hmm, there is a commit missing somewhere. We can't use libreadline so that define was removed at one point, or so I thought.

Just comment out or simply remove line number 39 ("#define LUA_USE_READLINE") and then it should build fine. This one is our (my) fault, so I'll get that fixed in SVN as well.


castor (reporter)

I think it wasn't complaining about that a few revision earlier, but cannot say for sure. Anyway, I'll comment it out locally.


taylor (administrator)

I had added the LUA_USE_LINUX define to the builds to deal with other issues that come up from not using a Linux specific compile of Lua, so that is why it didn't do it before. The readline dependency was supposed to come out at the same time though, but obviously it didn't. It could just be that I made the change locally, then lost it when everything got merged with WMC's commit and I subsequently forgot to remove it again later.

It's fixed in SVN now though, so hopefully it won't be an issue again.
