I still think it's nuts to install multiple luarocks installations when the big feature of luarocks 3.x was the ability to handle multiple lua versions. But I'll withdraw my objection.

andrew_tao173.riddles.org.uk requested changes to D25784: Add `flavors` support to devel/lua-luarocks.

What's the justification for adding flavors, given that one luarocks install is supposed to be able to manage multiple lua versions?

When I try installing LuaRocks from ports/pkg I always get 5.2, regardless of the installed version of lua (due to the FreeBSD default Lua version of 5.2). The FreeBSD default means Luarocks is also configured for Lua 5.2 and the executable/script is called luarocks52. Perhaps I've done something wrong and there is an easier way around that, but this seems to perfectly fit the use case for flavors?

While at it, would it be worth adding a check that the stack size is at least MINSIGSTKSZ + PATH_MAX ?

When you say 'adding a check', are you proposing a static assert that PSPAWN_STACK_ALIGNMENT at least fits MINSIGSTKSZ + PATH_MAX , or runtime check just before calling rfork_thread()?

andrew_tao173.riddles.org.uk added a comment to D25038: execvPe: obviate the need for potentially large stack allocations.

Adding an EINVAL return to rfork_thread will cause this code to fall through to the "use vfork instead" logic, hiding the error in unexpected ways.

Discussion point: this implementation converts the variable name to upper case for consistency with the way that port option_VARS works. But there are some cases where one might want to set a mixed-case name (such as CFLAGS.arch), so maybe it shouldn't do that and just use the case as written?

May 6 2020, 2:42 AM
andrew_tao173.riddles.org.uk added a comment to D24324: Allow category_port_VARS= in make.conf for arbitrary per-port overrides..

I really like the idea of being able to simply and cleanly set vars for specific ports from /etc/make.conf. I think the choice of variable naming is exactly right here, and the implementation is clean and simple.

However, I am 100% with @mat here that bsd.default-versions.mk is the wrong place for this. The idea is that the things defined in there choose one from a list of conflicting options. If every port is built with ssl=openssl and one port is overridden with ssl=libressl, then it will be impossible to install that port without uninstalling everything else. I can't think of a scenario where any default version should be overridden.

Can you implement this somewhere else, so that default versions are preserved?

Test results: adding support for 5.4 causes only two ports (archivers/urbackup-server and x11-toolkits/termit) to switch from lua 5.3 to 5.4 when LUA_DEFAULT is 5.2. (They would not switch if the default were 5.3; both are declared as lua:53+, and the default version is chosen if it is in range, otherwise the latest available version in the range.)

andrew_tao173.riddles.org.uk requested changes to D22179: lang/lua52: remove REINPLACE_CMD for unmodified file.

No, this change is wrong if LUA_PREFIX is something different from /usr/local, since in that case luaconf.h does indeed get modified.

Looks like Roberto snuck some hardcoded -Os options into the makefile, we need to either patch those back out or think of something else to do with them.

You should ask about that on the mailing list. -O2 is specified twice, as well as -Os. Which option does the compiler take?

You seem to have duplicated a patch? There should be no patch for lua.c other than the extra-patch-libedit-dl one.

  • When the ASSERT option is selected, the extra-patch-assert file fails to apply cleanly. I tried to port it over but I there has been a change to lgc.c and I don't know enough about lgc to apply the patch (Help Andrew?).

Now that a 5.4.0-beta release has been made, and there are signs that features are actually stabilizing (there have been many changes since work2), perhaps we could pick this up again. The distinfo needs an update of course.

Further proposal (the patch doesn't do this yet): cron should not override PATH when reading a user crontab; whether it should use the user's path, or daemon's path, rather than the hardcoded default when processing the system crontab is a more open question.

I've been pondering whether limits(1) also needs an option to pick up the environment from the login class, or whether that's better addressed in rc.subr for the case of servicename_class="x" settings.

Why isn't this just CFLAGS+=-fPIC ?

Because e.g. powerpc64 doesn't need it.
