Pijul install error


Hi, i am trying to install pijul within msys32
how to solve this build error?

note that i had installed all libraries and tools for pijul:
pacman -S git make diffutils tar mingw-w64-i686-python2 mingw-w64-i686-gcc
pacman -S openssl-devel mingw-w64-i686-libsodium

$ cargo install pijul

The package thrussh-libsodium can’t find libsodium

To fix it yourself, you’ll need to make this command work:

pkg-config --libs libsodium

which needs to be able to find libsodium.pc file on your machine. If you have it, you can set its directory in PKG_CONFIG_PATH env variable.

Another option may be to file a bug on https://nest.pijul.com/pijul_org/thrussh and have them worry about it and add a workaround to their build script :slight_smile:


i am not sure it is the problem,
maybe someone at pijul should have to look their code:

$ pkg-config --libs libsodium
-L/mingw32/lib -lsodium

$ cat /mingw32/lib/pkgconfig/libsodium.pc

Name: libsodium
Version: 1.0.16
Description: A modern and easy-to-use crypto library

Libs: -L${libdir} -lsodium
Cflags: -I${includedir}
