Hi Dirk,

Thanks for the report!

Are you copying the files according to your package.cpath and package.path?
I'd probably try instead:

$ sudo cp /usr/local/lib/lua/5.1
$ sudo mkdir /usr/local/share/lua/5.1/numlua
$ sudo cp *.lua /usr/local/share/lua/5.1/numlua

or, even better, just use the files as installed by luarocks and do nothing,
but issue `lua5.1 -lluarocks.loader`. Can you please try that and see if it

luarocks does not work with 5.2 out of the box, but you can fool it into
building a 5.2 module by installing luarocks using

$ ./configure --with-lua-include=/usr/local/include --with-lua-lib=/usr/local/lib

Now build using luarocks and install as above, but changing 5.1 for 5.2:

$ sudo cp /usr/local/lib/lua/5.2
$ sudo mkdir /usr/local/share/lua/5.2/numlua
$ sudo cp *.lua /usr/local/share/lua/5.2/numlua
