Description Martins Innus 2005-02-10 15:27:40 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6)
Gecko/20040612 Firefox/0.8

Description of problem:
The gsl-1.1-nousr.patch patch in this package messes up the gsl-config
--libs command under x86_64. The offending lines:

-               echo @GSL_LIBS@ $GSL_CBLAS_LIB -lm
+               echo @GSL_LIBS@ $GSL_CBLAS_LIB -lm | sed "s|-L/usr/lib||g"

Cause the following output:

[minnus@zappa SOURCES]$ gsl-config --libs
64 -lgsl -lgslcblas -lm

The "64" being left over from -L/usr/lib64, where the rest was
stripped out by the above "sed" command.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.gsl-config --libs

Actual Results:  64 -lgsl -lgslcblas -lm

Expected Results:  -lgsl -lgslcblas -lm


-L/usr/lib64 -lgsl -lgslcblas -lm

Maybe removing this from the spec file and using the %_libdir (??)
macro is best?

Comment 2 Jay Turner 2005-04-14 15:12:52 UTC
Fixed with gsl-1.5-2.rhel4.  Moving to PROD_READY.
