strace of omake failing

This is just output of strace executing 'omake clean' on my project. This
worked flawlessly in Core 8 with Godi installed omake.
Comment 2 shiv 2008-05-16 15:19:22 EDT
[shiv@sobolev CamlFloat]$ rpm -qa | grep ocaml
Comment 3 Richard W.M. Jones 2008-05-16 16:05:59 EDT
The 'strace' indicates that the process isn't running the patched runtime, which
is because I didn't recompile omake with the new runtime (so it's using the old one).

I'll push a new build of omake to F9 which should fix this shortly.

Comment 4 Richard W.M. Jones 2008-05-16 16:25:13 EDT
Hmm, by 'shortly' I mean after ocaml-3.10.1-3 has moved to stable,
so probably tomorrow.

Some alternatives if you're impatient:
(1) Enable the development repository and pull ocaml 3.10.2 +
omake which is built with the fix.

(2) Grab the SRPM of ocaml-omake and rebuild it:
  yum install yum-utils rpm-build
  yumdownloader --source ocaml-omake
  rpmbuild -ba ocaml-omake-*.src.rpm

Comment 6 Richard W.M. Jones 2008-05-17 11:06:02 EDT
