some issues building neovim in openbsd 6.2

cmake fails to find a usable lua

... even if packages for lua and all deps(mpack, bitop, lpeg) are installed. This seems to be a problem with the lua binary name in OpenBSD its called lua51, lua52, luajit51 - instead of the expected lua5.1 or just lua.

The workaround for this is to specify the binary

Its 2018 lets build neovim from source in windows

It's been a while since I did this, so .... lets see what happens.

For starters we have this setup

  • Windows 10 64 bit
  • using VS code (with some cmake and C++/C extensions installed)
  • installed cmake manually
  • I'm doing this off two different computers, so these notes will not have output :S

Just to establish that we have everything we need to build neovim, I'm going to take the long route using cmake

Why cant I use clipboard with remote nvim or why is 298 still open?

So we still have some issues with the GUI clipboard.

My hypothesis is that because nvim is caching the has_clipboard static variable then the clipboard will always be considered as invalid and can NEVER be enabled.

Test setup

First I'm going to start nvim in a way that prevents any clipboard for working by changing the PATH.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
