launch-julia-webserver fails for installed package #830

It seems that the webserver links to an absolute path during compile time which may not present after make install.

I've installed julia to /usr/share/julia and deleted the compilation directory. Running launch-julia-webserver gives me:

Connect to http://localhost:2000/ for the web REPL.

This seems like an issue with the lighttpd build.

I really don't know what to do about this. :-(


Thanks, maybe I can find a way to compile lighthttp with the correct path. I'll close the issue since it's more or less a packaging-issue.

The right thing might be to USE_SYSTEM_LIGHTTPD if available.


Just in case anyone finds this, I found it was looking for the lighttpd plugins in /lib, while on my machine (Arch linux) they were in /lib/lighttpd. I assume this is true of all Arch users so I could patch this. I'm forking now to fix it.
