mergJSON not working on Linux 64-bit

Post by Ocean » Mon May 18, 2015 1:22 am

The external mergJSON does not seem to work on Linux 64-bit in LiveCode 7.x. Other mergEXT externals may be similarly affected, although I have not tested those.

Is this a known issue? If so, are there any plans to resolve this? Thanks in advance!

Well it's a known issue in that I haven't built the external for 64-bit on Linux for inclusion with the distributed binaries. Should be easy enough to do though. If you're in a rush get the source from https://github.com/montegoulding/mergJSON and modify the makefile by removing -m32 from mergJSON.so and then recompile. If you're really keen you could fork the project and submit a pull request to add two targets mergJSON-x86.so and mergJSON-x64.so. Otherwise I'll get it done tomorrow or early next week.

Cheers

Hey Monte - ran into the same issue. Any chance of getting this compiled?

As soon as I can... need find time to setup a 64 bit linux box. The actual compilation is trivial if you have one though.
