PARI/GP is a widely used computer algebra system designed for fast
computations in number theory (factorizations, algebraic number theory,
elliptic curves...), but also contains a large number of other useful
functions to compute with mathematical entities such as matrices,
polynomials, power series, algebraic numbers etc., and a lot of
transcendental functions. PARI is also available as a C library to
allow for faster computations.
Rpmlint has two warnings:
pari.x86_64: W: shared-lib-calls-exit /usr/lib64/libpari.so.2.3.4 exit@GLIBC_2.2.5
pari-devel.x86_64: W: no-documentation
The first has no obvious fix (it's caused by src/language/init.c, line 601), but is only triggered when invalid code is compiled. The second is ignorable.
Isn't pari already in Fedora? "yum info pari" sure seems to indicate that it is.
Oh dear. That would have saved me some work... Closing.
