I downloaded the latest Linux 64-bit binaries from https://haxe.org/download/.
haxe works great but
haxelib fails with:
./haxelib: error while loading shared libraries: libneko.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
This was apparently reported back in 2014 as #3662. @ncannasse suggestion to add an install script apparently hasn’t been realized (there isn’t any in the latest release). The issue was then closed in favor of #75 to add manual installation instructions, but this issue has apparently been closed without being implemented … https://haxe.org/download/ doesn’t have any manual installation instructions.
Normally I would open a GitHub issue for this but seeing that there already were two opened for this in 2014 without apparently ever being acted upon I am hesitant.
Edit: I managed to get it running by installing the
neko package from my distribution … I still think that this should be better documented.
