Description Patrice Dumas 2007-08-27 19:38:05 UTC
Spec URL: http://www.environnement.ens.fr/perso/dumas/fc-srpms/g2lib.spec
SRPM URL: http://www.environnement.ens.fr/perso/dumas/fc-srpms/g2lib-1.0.9-1.fc8.src.rpm

This library contains Fortran 90 decoder/encoder
routines for GRIB edition 2, as well as indexing/searching
utility routines.  The user API for the GRIB2 routines
is described in file "grib2.doc".

Comment 1 Michel Alexandre Salim 2008-01-27 03:06:50 UTC
Any test programs I could use to verify that the package is working?

Comment 2 Michel Alexandre Salim 2008-01-27 03:20:31 UTC
- I'm hesitant about the placement of the module files -- perhaps
%{_libdir}/g2lib would be a better place?

- I'm not a Fortran expert, but this seems to suggest that .mod files are
susceptible to ABI breaks. In that case you'd have to Requires: the appropriate
version of gcc-gfortran. Any idea?

- 1.10 is out

Comment 3 Patrice Dumas 2008-01-27 11:37:31 UTC
The mod files placement has been discussed on the packaging list
and the draft was accepted:

Still blocked by the needed changes in fedora rpm macros.

Comment 4 Patrice Dumas 2008-05-18 16:18:12 UTC
Use fmoddir and update to latest:

One thing worth noting is that I change the library name for something
more specific and less prone to clashes.

There is cnvgrib that I submitted here:

Ping. I've not been noticing this bug because its blocker has not changed status -- is the matter resolved?

Comment 7 Patrice Dumas 2009-03-02 13:59:09 UTC
It has been resolved since a long time on F10, but I reopened it for F9. Nobody seems to care, and Jakub disagrees on the placement of the fortran modules anyway, so I closed the bug.

The real issue for that submission is that I have left Fedora... Nobody have shown interest in that submission, so maybe the best is to close it.

Sorry to hear that. Hope you'll be back, though.
