Description Richard W.M. Jones 2008-02-19 09:30:19 UTC
ocamlgsl are OCaml bindings to the GNU scientific library.
A spec file is included in the tarball.

This is a tracking bug for packaging this library.

Comment 1 Richard W.M. Jones 2008-02-20 13:55:24 UTC
Hezekiah: Please can you try this package and post your results here.


Comment 2 Hezekiah M. Carty 2008-03-04 18:37:59 UTC
I have built the RPM on a x86 32bit CentOS 5 system using manually recompiled
OCaml 3.10.0 packages from Fedora.  The packages were able to build and pass a
few basic tests (compiling and testing a program which uses the library).

It looks good from here.

Comment 3 Richard W.M. Jones 2008-03-04 18:44:38 UTC
I'll put in a review request for this package shortly.

Comment 4 Hezekiah M. Carty 2008-03-30 00:39:51 UTC
For what it's worth, I tried to build the given ocaml-gsl .src.rpm on my F9pre
partition, and got the following result:

(lots of snipped output in which everything looks fine...)

Comment 5 Caolan McNamara 2008-03-31 11:43:57 UTC
The args foo is rhbz#439168 and should be fixed now

Comment 6 Richard W.M. Jones 2008-03-31 12:05:33 UTC
Comment 4 is a bug in xargs (see bug 439168).

This will work if you upgrade glibc and findutils to at least:

Comment 7 Hezekiah M. Carty 2008-04-09 18:49:19 UTC
I tested the package again today and it seems to build and function properly on
a fairly up to date F9 install.

Comment 8 Richard W.M. Jones 2008-04-25 17:21:44 UTC
This is approved for Fedora now, so closed.
