Description Roman Tsisyk 2016-08-17 08:56:15 UTC
Description of problem:

LuaRocks from EPEL6 installs shared libraries into wrong directory (/usr/lib instead of /usr/lib64).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

luarocks 2.1.2-1.el6

How reproducible:

Install luarocks from EPEL6 and then try to install some binary rock using luarocks install.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. docker run -t -i centos:6
2. yum install -y
3. yum install luarocks
4. yum install gcc unzip - see
5. luarocks install luafilesystem
6. lua
> require('lfs')

Actual results:

# luarocks install luafilesystem
Using switching to 'build' mode
gcc -O2 -fPIC -I/usr/include -c src/lfs.c -o src/lfs.o
gcc -shared -o -L/usr/lib src/lfs.o
Updating manifest for /usr/lib/luarocks/rocks

# lua
Lua 5.1.4  Copyright (C) 1994-2008, PUC-Rio

> require('lfs')
stdin:1: module 'lfs' not found:
	no field package.preload['lfs']

	no file './'
	no file '/usr/lib64/lua/5.1/'
	no file '/usr/lib64/lua/5.1/'
stack traceback:
	[C]: in function 'require'
	stdin:1: in main chunk
	[C]: ?

ls -l /usr/lib/lua/5.1/ 

Expected results:

On x86_64 shared libraries must be installed to /usr/lib64 instead of /usr/lib

ls -l /usr/lib64/lua/5.1/ 

Additional info:

cat /etc/luarocks/config-5.1.lua:
rocks_trees = {
   { name = [[user]], root = home..[[/.luarocks]] },
   { name = [[system]], root = [[/usr]], lib_dir = [[/usr/lib64/lua/5.1]] }

fix is to add lib_dir = [[/usr/lib64/lua/5.1]] on x86_64:
rocks_trees = {
   { name = [[user]], root = home..[[/.luarocks]] },
   { name = [[system]], root = [[/usr]], lib_dir = [[/usr/lib64/lua/5.1]] }
