cucumber + yajl troubles (OSX Lion)

using rails 3.0.1 and cucumber-rails (~>1.1.0).. and got this weird error message:

dyld: lazy symbol binding failed: Symbol not found: _yajl_set_static_value
  Referenced from: ~/.rvm/gems/ruby-1.9.3-p0/gems/yajl-ruby-1.0.0/lib/yajl/yajl.bundle
  Expected in: flat namespace

dyld: Symbol not found: _yajl_set_static_value
  Referenced from: ~/.rvm/gems/ruby-1.9.3-p0/gems/yajl-ruby-1.0.0/lib/yajl/yajl.bundle
  Expected in: flat namespace

Trace/BPT trap: 5

so.. working solution is:

  • go to the gem itself ~/.rvm/gems/ruby-1.9.3-p0/gems/yajl-ruby-1.0.0/ext/yajl open yajl_ext.h  and yajl_ext.c  and change inline void to static void
  • gmake clean all
  • overwrite yajl.bundle in lib/
example of edited yajl.h
static void yajl_check_and_fire_callback(void * ctx);
static void yajl_set_static_value(void * ctx, VALUE val);
voila! :)

  1. Very nice! Ran into this while using Yajl::Parser to parse an HTTP stream, and this fix solved it.

    Is changing inline to static safe? Not enough of a C whiz to understand the implications…
