Building Swift Package Manager on ARM


(Joe Bell) #1

Howdy,

I'm looking to getting the Swift Package Manager building on ARM systems
such as the BeagleBoard, and its now in the bootstrap stage, and bombs out
which what appears to be a linking error. I know that
_TMaC18PackageDescription7Package
is defined in libPackageDescription.so but its not being picked up when
Package.swift is compiled.

That issue aside, what is the meaning of the "driver-mode" option to
swiftc, and why would one invoke swiftc with --driver-mode=swift?

Hi Joseph,

The driver mode option tells swiftc to "behave" like "swift" (in this case, to act as an interpreter). The reason we use that option there is so that the bootstrap script can be passed just the path to `swiftc` and not need to be passed (or derive) the path to `swift`.

The failure you are seeing is most likely because `swift` is unable to load the dynamic library associated with the PackageDescription module (which is used to load the manifest files). The way that this is *supposed* to work is:
- The manifest files have `import PackageDescription`.
- swift finds that library via the -L arguments.
- swift will try and load the dynamic library associated with the module (but currently I don't believe it is an error if the `import` succeeds but the loading of the .so fails).
- swift JITs the code for the module, which then can dynamically link with the loaded library. This is what is failing in your case.

Unfortunately the way the LLVM JIT works the exact nature of the failure isn't obvious. What you can try to do is write a simple C program which dlopen()s the PackageDescription .so and see why it is failing (or if that is in fact the issue). It is also possible that some part of this pipeline isn't working properly for Swift on Linux/ARM.

HTH,
- Daniel
