module load failure with Node v0.10.* #115

i have a Jakefile does some auto-build versioning through the use of @TooTallNate's NodObjC which pulls in node-ffi and unfortunately it appears to be blowing up after upgrading to Node v0.10.0, no issues with v0.8.22.

% jake --trace
jake aborted.

rebuilding node-ffi on node v0.10.0 then hits a snag in libuv, a function signature may have changed:

  CXX(target) Release/
../src/ error: no matching function for call to 'uv_queue_work'
    uv_queue_work(uv_default_loop(), req, ForeignCaller::AsyncFFICall,...
/Users/jpm/.node-gyp/0.10.0/deps/uv/include/uv.h:1397:15: note: candidate function not viable: no
      known conversion from 'void (uv_work_t *)' to 'uv_after_work_cb' (aka
      'void (*)(uv_work_t *, int)') for 4th argument
UV_EXTERN int uv_queue_work(uv_loop_t* loop, uv_work_t* req,
1 error generated.
make: *** [Release/] Error 1
gyp ERR! build error 

and a full gist with more details.


Oh crap, basically you're running into the fact that NodObjC still uses the older version of node-ffi. The current version of node-ffi works fine on v0.10.0. I have. A WIP ffi-1.0 branch in the NodObjC repo, but it's not quite ready yet. Hopefully I'll find time to fix it soon!


Closing since this is a NodObjC issue, not node-ffi


sorry about the confusion, i'll keep an eye on the NodObjC repo for updates.


Running into this, too. NodObjC is indeed the issue, but it's not a straightforward fix there. It requires a major refactor. @TooTallNate, until your refactor is complete, could you simply push a new version of your node-ffi 0.x API onto npm, from the 0.5 branch of this node-ffi project? As long as node-ffi is on npm with its own alias, I think it should remain a maintained project.

I'll attach a pull request if that helps, but it's just the straightforward (uv_after_work_cb) cast. That should fix every project that uses the old node-ffi API, not just NodObjC.
