Description Matthieu Volat 2012-01-03 09:31:55 EST
Description of problem:
The most recent included package of the boost libraries deprecates the math libraries under the reasoning that those are now implemented as template in the header. However, those libraries are still produced and used by at least one function.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
1.47.0-4

How reproducible:
Try to compile a program that uses the std::tr1::cbrt from boost.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Write the following program as a C++ source file:
#include <boost/tr1/cmath.hpp>

int main(void)
{
    double d = std::tr1::cbrt(12.f);
    return 0;
}
2. Try to generate the object file
3. Try to link the object file as executable
  
Actual results:
You can create the object file, bot not the executable because of the boost_cbrt symbol that is provided by the boost_math libraries.

Expected results:
If the math library was header-implemented, no libraries should have been needed. If not, we should be able to link against the math libraries that are not available.

Additional info:
A workaround would be to use other cbrt implementation, but this require patching against code that should work without it.
Comment 1 Petr Machata 2012-01-03 12:33:11 EST
It seems that we don't compile the math library by mistake.
Comment 2 Petr Machata 2012-01-04 11:54:15 EST
I've pushed a fix to rawhide, now trying local build in F16.  If all is smooth, I'll spin an update.

Denis, could you please somehow transpose a corresponding fix into your cmakeified-boost repository?
