requires lowering platform to 21 (currently 23) or adding -Wl,--hash-style=both to the linker flags

After 61dd131 2020/07/11 Mark Spieth : Android: Set both hash styles for qt build

  1. Setting api to 24 causes this error dlopen failed: cannot locate symbol "register_atfork"
  2. Setting api to 21 causes this compile error in two files fstream:950:9: error: use of undeclared identifier 'fseeko'
  3. Since fseeko and ftello only exist from api 24, I changed those two files to use ftell and fseek instead when compiling for api < 24. Then I got this error: failed: dlopen failed: library "libexiv2.so" not found
  4. Looking at the apk, it contains libexiv2.14.so but not libexiv2.so. I changed mythbuild.sh to include libexiv2.so. Now it contains both. This is not optimal. But it works.

Attached are patch files for the changes. I do not understand why libexiv2.14.so is copied, and why this is ok when running on firestick 4k but not on firestick non-4k.

Both patches look fine.

I think the exiv2 lib issue is due to myth tree external version and its getting confused during link. We now have 2 versions I think. Is this statement true? A softlink may be better in that case.

comment:5 Changed 2 months ago by Peter Bennett

Correct - the apk now has 2 copies. I don't know if you can set up a soft link in an apk file. However, libexiv2 and libexiv2.14 are each 1.5 MB so it is very little storage wasted.

comment:6 Changed 2 months ago by David Hampton

IIRC, libexiv2 is used for the myth-31 build and libexiv2 is used for the myth-master build. You don't need them both in the same APK.

Fixed with b76dbf4214 in mythtv and 1d75297 in packaging.
