Description Mattias Ellert 2020-08-26 18:59:26 UTC
Description of problem:

R-core is not installable in F31:

Problem: conflicting requests
- nothing provides libRblas.so()(64bit) needed by R-core-3.6.3-2.fc31.x86_64
- nothing provides openblas-Rblas needed by R-core-3.6.3-2.fc31.x86_64

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


How reproducible:

Koschei reports "unresolved" for R packages in Fedora 31.

Actual results:

R-core not installable

Expected results:

R-core installable

Additional info:

Broke when the openblas-0.3.10-4.fc31 update became stable.

Comment 1 Tom "spot" Callaway 2020-08-27 15:02:44 UTC
Hmmm. I didn't think they were going to revert openblas-Rblas all the way back. We had not planned on rebuilding the R stack in F31. Could we get openblas-Rblas back for F31?

Comment 2 Iñaki Ucar 2020-08-27 15:24:25 UTC
The thing is I saw [1], which enabled syslapack for all Fedoras, but [2] reverted it for F31. Then we gave our blessings [3] for

%if 0%{?fedora} >= 31 || 0%{?rhel} >= 8
Obsoletes:      %{name}-Rblas < %{version}-%{release}

Apologies, @jussilehtola I wasn't aware of [2].

Comment 3 Tom "spot" Callaway 2020-08-27 15:28:58 UTC
Yeah, this is totally my fault too. Susi, if you would rather that R do the rebuilds, I will. Let me know.

Comment 4 Tom "spot" Callaway 2020-08-31 15:23:12 UTC
Reassigning to R. I am rebuilding R for F31 now with the "syslapack" option flag enabled.

I will also need to buildoverride that build (R-3.6.3-3.fc31) and rebuild the following R modules:


These need to be rebuilt because they currently depend on "libRlapack.so()(64bit)" (on x86_64).

Users who have installed modules from CRAN which depend on libRlapack.so will need to remove and reinstall those modules.
