Description paulmatthews 1998-11-12 05:07:16 UTC
gmp-devel-2.0.2-5 is missing /usr/include/gmp-mparam.h.
Makes it difficult to use gmp with the low level interface.

Comment 1 Derek Tattersall 1998-11-19 17:00:59 UTC
/usr/include/gmp-mparam.h is missing from the gmp-devel rpm as

Comment 2 Michael K. Johnson 1998-11-24 21:45:59 UTC
The gmp package does not install a gmp-mparam.h header file by
default, nor is gmp-mparam.h covered in the gmp documentation.
The gmp package includes in several subdirectories several files
named gmp-mparam.h, but no instructions that they are anything
other than an internal header file.  If gmp is supposed to install
gmp-mparam.h, then it is a bug in gmp.  I can't tell if the gmp
maintainers consider this a bug or not, but you are welcome to
take it up with them.

Comment 3 Michael K. Johnson 1999-02-11 18:50:59 UTC
Since several applications assume that the gmp source code is
installed for the express purpose of getting at gmp-mparam.h, I
decided that whether or not it is a bug in gmp, I'll fix it for
Red Hat users by putting the gmp-mparam.h file chosen at build
time in /usr/include/gmp-mparam.h

Comment 4 Michael K. Johnson 1999-02-11 19:07:59 UTC
Fixed in gmp-devel-2.0.2-7.  Will not be released as an erratum
against 5.2, but will be in RawHide and subsequent official
