Description Paulo Andrade 2012-05-12 17:32:16 EDT
While working on yet another RFE for maxima (to add support to ECL)
I again found a problem I had sometime ago with ecl and sagemath, that
was addressed in http://trac.sagemath.org/sage_trac/ticket/11752

  There is also a recent report in ecl mailing list, with the same
symptoms I had (maxima make check deadlock):

  I opened an upstream request to change the default at

  Another problem in ecl.spec is that the configure option to disable
rpath was removed in last upstream release, probably by mistake, so
I added it back, otherwise it would be added to ecl-config --libs
or ecl-config --ldflags output.

Spec URL: http://fedorapeople.org/~pcpa/ecl.spec
SRPM URL: http://fedorapeople.org/~pcpa/ecl-12.2.1-3.fc16.src.rpm

  Also please review this rpmlint warning:

ecl.src: W: file-size-mismatch ecl-12.2.1.tgz = 8974873, http://downloads.sourceforge.net/ecls/ecl-12.2.1.tgz = 8974948
(I am using the one from fedpkg sources)
Comment 1 Paulo Andrade 2012-05-13 15:49:45 EDT
I have another pending request that will require either ecl
behaviour change or a patch in sagemath, so, worth mentioning
in this bug report:


The problem is ecl built with unicode support and sagemath code
depending on behaviour of ecl built without unicode support.
