Writing a C ext to Ruby and dyld: NSLinkModule() error

iu’ev to write a C ext to Ruby (i’ve allready an ObjC one) and, for that
purpose i familiarise myself with C and Ruby ext.

i’ve done the test in “How to create a Ruby extension in C in under 5
5-minutes-100.html> and have foolowed afterwards “The Pragmatic
Programmer’s Guide >> Extending Ruby” i’ve written *.c and *.h as it is
in this page, my extconf.rb being as simple as :

— extconf.rb --------------------------------------------------------
require ‘mkmf’

Give it a name

#extension_name = ‘cdjukebox’

The destination


Do the work


i get the “CDJukebox.bundle” and try it using this code :

— jukebox.rb --------------------------------------------------------
require ‘Jukebox/cdjukebox’

p = CDPlayer.new(1)
puts “Unit is #{p.unit}”
p.seek(3, 16) {|x| puts “#{x}% done” }
puts “Avg. time was #{p.seekTime} seconds”

if i print out the $LOAD_PATH i get :
", “/opt/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8”,
“/opt/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby”, “/opt/local/lib/ruby/vendor_ruby/1.8”,
“/opt/local/lib/ruby/vendor_ruby”, “/opt/local/lib/ruby/1.8”,
“/opt/local/lib/ruby/1.8/powerpc-darwin8.7.0”, “.”]

then the dot “.” is here.

here is the error i get :
dyld: NSLinkModule() error
dyld: Symbol not found: _CDPlayerSeek
Referenced from: ./Jukebox/cdjukebox.bundle
Expected in: flat namespace

i think the prob come with the MakeFile and then from extconf.rb too

i’ve seen after googleing that some args to the compiler might be
missing, then i’ve tried adding :

-read_only_relocs suppress to the line "LDSHARED = " in MakeFile

or :
-framework IOKit -framework CoreFoundation -framework Carbon

to the line “LIBS” in the same file

and try to setup “LDFLAGS” to “-Wl,-read_only_relocs,warning” before
running make.

none of those get a successfull run .
