Description Michael Krauss 2008-10-25 12:03:15 UTC
Description of problem:
I can't load graphics.cma in toplevel as documented in the ocaml manual, because graphics.cma is not inludeded in the ocaml package.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
This is a permanent problem. 

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start ocaml toplevel
2. try to load graphics.cma
Actual results:
[mickraus@gandalf]~% ocaml
        Objective Caml version 3.10.1

# #load "graphics.cma";;
Cannot load required shared library dllgraphics.
Reason: dllgraphics.so: dllgraphics.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory.

Expected results:
The bytecode version of the Graphics module should be included into the ocaml package.

Additional info:
[root@gandalf ~]# rpm -ql ocaml | grep graphics

This was also reported on fedora-ocaml-list, although I
couldn't manage to reproduce it:


Comment 2 Michael Krauss 2008-10-27 14:27:31 UTC
To test ocaml package in rawhide, I installed Fedora 10 Snap3 on a ia32 machine.

[mickraus@frodo ~]$ rpm -q ocaml
[mickraus@frodo ~]$ rpm -ql ocaml | grep graphics
[mickraus@frodo ~]$ 

So graphics.cma is missing in rawhide too, resulting in the same error message as before.

Comment 3 Richard W.M. Jones 2008-10-28 09:36:47 UTC
I'll have a look this morning.

Comment 4 Richard W.M. Jones 2008-10-30 13:03:55 UTC
Nope, still can't reproduce this on Rawhide.  The following
works fine on both 32 bit and 64 bit Rawhide machines I have:

$ ocaml
        Objective Caml version 3.10.2

# #load "graphics.cma";;

Comment 5 Richard W.M. Jones 2008-10-30 13:05:41 UTC
I think the problem may be that you need to install ocaml-runtime:

$ rpm -ql ocaml | grep graphics
$ locate /graphics.cma
$ rpm -qf /usr/lib64/ocaml/graphics.cma

Comment 6 Michael Krauss 2008-10-30 16:48:05 UTC
You are right, graphics.cma is in ocaml-runtime. But the problem still existed.
So I compared Rawhide with a working Graphics module on an Arch installation. 

In the end I realized that the shared library /usr/lib/ocaml/stublibs/dllgraphics.so was missing on the Fedora installation. Google showed the library being part of the ocaml-x11 package. After installing this the Graphics module is working now.

Thanks for your help.
