Making SwiftShims.swiftmodule


#1

I am trying to use the prebuilt Ubuntu 14.04 binaries on Ubuntu 12.04. I have run into two problems so far.

1. Swift needs libicu52. Only libicu48 is available for 12.04. Easy enough… just compile libicu52 and stick the libraries in /usr/local/lib. OK.
2. When I try to compile or use the REPL, I get “<unknown>:0: error: opening import file for module 'SwiftShims': No such file or directory”.

For #2, I gave up trying to find the bug in the source code; right now I am in hack mode. I want to build SwiftShims.swiftmodule myself and stick it in usr/lib/swift/linux/x86_64, which is one of the places the Swift compiler tries to check. Any ideas how to make SwiftShims.swiftmodule?

You’re probably hitting the same issue as these similar bugs:

SR-23Build fails on Ubuntu 14.04.1 -> error: opening ... 'SwiftShims': No such file <https://bugs.swift.org/browse/SR-23>
SR-333Compiling hello world fails on ARM Linux <https://bugs.swift.org/browse/SR-333>

I haven’t really looked into it very much, but it seems like relatively minor changes in system details can cause the appearance of this.

Excellent detective work!

I’m happy I’ll have something constructive to tell people that ask for help when this comes up!
