Description Jef Spaleta 2007-03-18 18:45:01 EDT
Description of problem:
3.6.2 appears to support building of shared C libraries. I was able to
successfully build shared libraries for myself on a centos 4 installation to
work with labview 8.2

It would be super keen to get upstream's 2.6.2 release into Fedora.
If you don't have the time, I'd be willing to co-maintain and get a new release
into devel.

Comment 1 Ed Hill 2007-03-18 19:00:59 EDT
Hi Jef, I'd be glad to have a co-maintiner for netcdf if you are willing 
to help out (co-maintain) some of the dependent projects such as NCO, CDO,
and ncview.

I've re-vamped the netcdf spec for devel and it seems to work OK here.  Do
you notice anything within it that you'd like to change?  I don't want to 
build and push it for FC-6 and FC-5 until I have had a chance to verify 
that it all works with the dependent packages for devel.  It should be OK,
I just want to test it first.

Comment 2 Ed Hill 2007-03-18 19:09:15 EDT
I should also mention that I've been insanely busy with ${WORK} and ${FAMILY} 
so its taking longer than intended -- any help is very much appreciated!  :-)
Comment 3 Jef Spaleta 2007-03-18 19:15:28 EDT
My ScientificPython package is also going to depend on it so I have a vested
interested in testing it in -devel.  It shouldn't have a problem for me to
co-maintain other netcdf dependant packages. Do you have a semi-accurate list?

What we really really really need to do is try to get a summary of which srpm's
have a build requires against netcdf-devel currently. I'm sort of afraid that we
don't have a full picture of what actual will be using netcdf shared libs
because we don't have a simple repoquery --whatrequires libnetcdf to make an
accurate list.

I keep meaning to actually look at using nco. Right now I'm using a set of
python scripts based on ScientificPython's approach to accessing netcdf v3 built
files. I'm desperately waiting for netcdf v4 to come out of beta.

Comment 4 Orion Poplawski 2007-05-18 17:12:16 EDT
Any progress on this?  Now that F7 has branched why don't we get this in devel
for testing?

By my reckoning, these are the netcdf-devel users:


As a side note, Ed, we probably should add:

make check

to the spec.

Also, what about creating a /usr/share/netcdf-3 with:
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 21 May 18 14:48 include -> ../../include/netcdf-3
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 19 May 18 14:48 lib -> ../../lib64/netcdf-3

This would allow folks to do things like export NETCDF=/usr/share/netcdf-3
building packages that expect the include and lib dirs to be sharing the same
parent directory.

I'm also happy to co-maintain.
Comment 5 Ed Hill 2007-05-18 22:36:14 EDT
Hi Orion, I'd be thrilled to have you co-maintain.  I'm incredibly busy for 
the next few weeks.  If you have time to push post-F7-branch builds then 
please do so!
Comment 6 Orion Poplawski 2007-05-22 11:47:23 EDT
I've built a 3.6.2 for devel.  Won't really be available until F7 is released. 
I'll ping the netcdf dependent package owners to test.
Comment 7 Patrice Dumas 2007-05-22 13:07:24 EDT
I'd also volunteer to be co-maintainer, since many packages I maintain
or am interested in need netcdf. I'll test rebuilds against the new 
package, too.
Comment 8 Ed Hill 2007-05-22 13:41:18 EDT
Hi Patrice, I appreciate all the work you've done on related packages.
Please feel free to sign on as a netcdf co-maintainer.
