clbuild and lispbuilder-sdl

On my earlier version of the alarm clock I used the cl-sdl library. I was testing clbuild the other day and I tried to use its version of the sdl: lispbuilder-sdl. Unfortunately on my machine I was getting an error everytime the app was about to close the window due to a call to SDL-glue-SDL-Close-Audio method on the cffi part of the lispbuilder-sdl library:

I suppressed this message by calling a method I knew was working and it worked fine so far.

So if you want to try the same thing, look for the glue.lisp file on the clbuild/source
/lispbuilder-sdl/cffi and change this part to the following code:


(cffi:defcfun ("SDL_CloseAudio"
SDL-glue-SDL-Close-Audio) :void)

So instead of calling the original method I am using the SDL_CloseAudio and it is working fine so far.

Since you are using Linux, and the glue library is currently supported only in Windows, I don't understand how :lisbuilder-sdl-audio could be pushed onto *features*.

Are you using the latest version of lispbuilder-sdl from svn on googlecode?

Thanks for your comment Luke. I googled this library at the time and I have no idea why is/was it getting included in the Linux compiled version. I will update my lispbuilder version and try again. I really don't like the lousy hack I did.

FYI, the same happens to me when using clbuild to install. I'll try the svn version and see if cures the problem.

Please let the lispbuilder-sdl mailing list know if this is still a problem from svn.

Or just post a comment on #lisp with sdl somewhere in the line, and I'll pick it up sometime during the day.

I didn't have a chance to try it again. But I will leave a message at the mailing list if it is not fixed.
