Description Quentin Spencer 2005-06-23 15:29:11 UTC

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050513 Fedora/1.0.4-1.3.1 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
I am including a patch here based on my experience packaging octave for Fedora Extras 4. The octave-devel package is missing a dependency on readline-devel and on octave itself. The mkoctfile script in octave-devel will fail without the libraries included in both of these packages.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Remove octave and readline-devel, install octave-devel, and try to compile a file using mkoctfile (some files that can be compiled using mkoctfile can be found in examples/ in the octave source tree).


Additional info:

The patch below fixes this bug as well as two other ones:
1. The CFLAGS set in the configure command are useless because octave is written in c++, so it should be CXXFLAGS instead.
2. The libdir needs to be set in the configure command, otherwise mkoctfile looks for things in /usr/lib instead of /usr/lib64 on x86_64.
