Gcc linker error on a crate


Hi, everyone, new to rust here.
Spent my Christmas holidays playing with Rust :smile:

Haven’t done anything that geeky since highschool, haha.

I gotta say, this borrowing business is hard.

Anyway, I have decided to try interfacing with lua and I was trying out

J.C. Moyer’s lua crate, unfortunately I just couldn’t get lua 5.3 to build on my windows machine so I decided to create a 5.2.4 version and try it on my computer instead.

Now that I managed to get the crate built, I still can’t seem to be able to use it in a project.

Here’s the linker error I get when I executed cargo build

Should I not see -l lua somewhere?

Anyway, here’s the error I got from rust

I’ve never really done too much with gcc, so I’m not sure if linking was done correctly here, it looked like when I built the interface package, it did have -l static=lua at the end.

So I’m wondering, how do I know if I built the crate properly? Is this something I need to fix in the test-project?

So I finally managed to build the jcmoyer version using the git url in dependency, it still gives me the same linker error.
Does this mean I didn’t set up lua correctly instead of a lua thing?

Thank you
