Request update to release 0.87.7 and I have a working srpm for this
Last modified: 2008-08-18 14:01:43 EDT
Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
0.87.6 currently is unbuildable against fedora core 6.
And there appears to be a problem with the applied patch to set the default
I have rolled a working version of 0.87.7 which changes the default numerix
interface to numpy and added a new patch to fix a build time issue with tkinker
probing. 0.87.7 wants to open a tk window as a test during building.. which
doesnt really work under rpmbuild environment.
I can shoot you the full srpm to use via email if you would like. Or I can
attach the spec and patches as attachements to this email. sadly i don't have a
publicly available webspace right now.
If you are willing to have me as a co-maintainer, I can commit this to Extras
development and then to fe6. Once I get this updated I want to move on and work
on getting scipy into extras as well.
Working srpm for 0.87.7 can be found at the following url.
I have tested this in fc6 and it works with both the current numpy in fe6
and with numpy in extras-development which will soon be pushed as an update to fe6
Thanks Jef. I've committed your changes to the development branch and built a
new package. I've been holding of on changing to numpy until 1.0 hit, which I
guess it has in devel.
I'm happy to have you as co-maintainer, so if you want to take care of the FE6
branch, that would be fine by me.
numpy 1.0.1 has landed in fe6 as well. Would you like me to do the necessary
steps to get matplotlib updated in fe6 as co-maintainer?

Feel free. Should just be a matter of copying over the stuff from devel. Thanks!
Okay I've added myswlf to the owners.list file and pushed a commit into the FC-6
branch. A build is in progress now in the buildsystem. I'm closing this bug
out. Hopefully I did everything right to enroll as a co-maintainer so that I
automatically get bugs about this package.
