Hi Fabio,

Sorry for not explaining better.

Yes, I did that (after trying once to see if LuaRocks handled being in a different root to Lua) and everything's working fine. As I said, it's really not a big deal, but it'd just be nice if, when LuaRocks detected Lua somewhere unusual, it either said "you might want to change PREFIX" or "it'll take a bit of fiddling to make this work".

Hi Geoff,

Just pass --prefix=/opt/local to the LuaRocks configure script.

I'm happy to announce LuaRocks 2.0.1, a bugfix release:

Hi Hisham,

With lua installed by macports in /opt/local, luarocks installs itself in /usr/local and the packages it installs don't work immediately (you have to add /usr/local... to your LUAPATH). It's not a big deal, but it might be worth luarocks offering to install in /opt/local in these cases, or have it mention that you're going to have to fiddle?

By the way, I've made a number of minor changes to luacov (to handle os.exit, wraps coroutine.create and coroutine.wrap). Are you interested in seeing them?
