Description Jeremy Bicha 2017-03-05 16:00:41 UTC
These new symbols look wrong to me (the extra _VOID__STRING* stuff)

  media_art_file_to_jpeg@Base 1.9.0
  media_art_get_file@Base 1.9.0
  media_art_get_path@Base 1.9.0
+ media_art_marshal_VOID__STRING_STRING@Base 1.9.1
  media_art_plugin_init@Base 1.9.0
  media_art_plugin_shutdown@Base 1.9.0
  media_art_process_buffer@Base 1.9.0
Comment 1 Michael Biebl 2017-03-05 16:18:47 UTC
Those are generated by marshal.list. I would suggest using a underscore like
--prefix=_media_art_marshal so those symbols are hidden
Comment 2 Michael Biebl 2017-03-05 16:19:27 UTC
Oh, I see my change was reverted in 52eb6498c97ce0005186946bc9162d87597abc2c

Well, partially at least

@Martin which build failure did you run into? We shipped this patch [1] in Debian for a while without problems.

Comment 4 Michael Biebl 2017-03-05 16:35:49 UTC
One issue I notice (which was probably an oversight on my part) is:

./libmediaart-sections.txt:44: warning: No declaration found for media_art_marshal_VOID__STRING_STRING.
./libmediaart-sections.txt:45: warning: No declaration found for media_art_marshal_VOID__STRING_STRING_STRING_BOOLEAN_BOOLEAN.
See libmediaart-undeclared.txt for the list of undeclared symbols.

I would remove that section from docs/reference/libmediaart/libmediaart-sections.txt:

Comment 5 Jens Georg 2017-04-17 11:22:12 UTC
Can't we just use the FFI marshaller here?
Comment 6 Michael Biebl 2017-06-30 10:19:52 UTC
Martin, can you chime in here please?
