Revert "Use find_library for ncurses"

Authored by haampie on Aug 25 2020, 3:58 AM.



The introduction of find_library for ncurses caused more issues than it solved problems. The current open issue is it makes the static build of LLVM fail. It's better to revert for now, and get back to it later.

I have checked this patch with bot. It makes it green.

Thanks for reverting, Harmen!

This revision is now accepted and ready to land.Aug 25 2020, 12:58 PM

FYI this doesn't fully fix MinGW issue:

$ cat tools/llvm-config/ | grep LLVM_SYSTEM_LIBS
#define LLVM_SYSTEM_LIBS "-lpsapi -lshell32 -lole32 -luuid -ladvapi32 -lz.dll"

It's because libraries are found by their import library which is libz.dll.a in this case.
libz.dll.a matches if in line 213 and gets stripped to z.dll which doesn't match shared library regex lib.*\.dll.

The easiest fix would be adding:

  STRING(REGEX REPLACE "^${CMAKE_IMPORT_LIBRARY_PREFIX}" "" zlib_library ${zlib_library})
  STRING(REGEX REPLACE "${CMAKE_IMPORT_LIBRARY_SUFFIX }$" "" zlib_library ${zlib_library})

Should it fixed in separate diff given the fact this is a revert?

Hi Mateusz,
Yes, this looks like a separate patch on top of this revert.

By the way, this hasn't been merged yet. Are we waiting for anything? Harmen, do you need a help committing this patch?

I have suggested an alternative in to try and fix this forward and I was waiting for @haampie's response before landing this. I can implement that today if you're OK fixing this forward? I think it'd be easier to do that than reverting and then relanding all these changes again. @gkistanova how did you check the patch with bot? Is there a way to do a presubmit check on that bot?

Hi Petr,

I don't have a strong opinion on the exact way of fixing the problem. But we should do this as soon as possible, as keeping the bots red for that long is not Ok.

Please send me your patch and I will check it on lld-perf-testsuite bot. If you do not have the patch ready yet, I'd say we shall commit this revert to buy more time.

@phosek it would be great to get that patch in, but the truth is it is difficult testing across multiple platforms for me; I can only test on Linux and macOS, not Windows (GNU). Since that patch would touch predefined, platform-dependent cmake variables, I would want to test it properly before submitting a patch, which might take a bit more time. So for me it would be best to temporarily accept this reverting patch, and submit a properly tested patch afterwards.

Fair enough. Reverted.

Thanks, everyone!

Petr, please feel free to send me a patch you want me to check for you. Make sure I could apply it on top of the trunk.
