• On March 3, 2021 my github action to get Firefox desktop support questions failed because the shared library for this ffi Ruby gem couldn’t be found!?!?
    • LoadError: libffi.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory - /home/runner/work/rt-kits-api3/rt-kits-api3/vendor/bundle/ruby/2.7.0/extensions/x86_64-linux/2.7.0/ffi-1.13.1/ffi_c.so
  • Still not sure why?!?
  • But the fix was to change the Gemfile.lock version of ffi to version 1.15.0 from 1.13.1
  • There doesn’t seem to be a way to test Github actions locally that is easy. A local testing utility called act exists but seems to have limitations. I don’t know since I haven’t tested it. I’ll take Pomax’s word for it :-)
