The problem is not Cygwin, but a more general portability issue. The
library name is not known and cannot be hardcoded (for example, on AIX,
shared libs use the ".a" extension)
This said, extracting the lib name from the .a file *is* the lobtool
recommended way of doing that.
So, I see are basically two options:
- - Rework the way the panel loads its plug-in and let g_module handle the
soname issue for us. This is not something acceptable now IMHO, as all
plugins would have to be adapted.
- - Find why the dlname is empty when built by the installer and fix it
for good. The problem is with the installer, and does not show when
configured/build/installed from the command line. Even when using the
installer's control.sh script to configure and build the panel, it works
when launched from the command line...
