I recently found about musl when googling for GLIBC alternatives. I read in the FAQ that binary compatibility with GLIBC is not there yet, so my question is if this is a priority for the library. As a bit of background to my question, let me say that I'm an SDL2 contributor, and I've tried linking SDL against musl, which seemed to work great. I'm linking dynamically BTW (statically linking to musl didn't quite work, I didn't research the issue much but it's probably a problem in SDL's build system). However, SDL uses dlopen/dlsym heavily to load most of its functionality (for example, to load the libGL.so.1 binary in order to provide OpenGL support), and these binaries depend on GLIBC...so (expectedly?) almost nothing actually works with the SDL/musl binary. So, will it ever work? Thanks! -- Gabriel. Content of type "text/html" skipped
