Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 855564
atlas-sse3-devel does not provide atlas-devel
Last modified: 2013-07-31 19:07:07 EDT
Description of problem:
I use octave w/ atlas-sse3 (and with atlas-sse3-devel installed).
Yet, when I try to install octave-devel it would pull in atlas and
atlas-devel as well. Which looks wrong to me.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
(atlas pulled from koji)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install atlas-sse3; atlas-sse3-devel
2. make sure that atlas and atlas-devel is NOT installed
3. yum install octave
4. yum install octave-devel
Package Arch Version Repository Size
octave-devel x86_64 6:3.6.2-2.fc17 updates 501 k
Installing for dependencies:
atlas x86_64 3.8.4-3.fc17 fedora 2.6 M
atlas-devel x86_64 3.8.4-3.fc17 fedora 1.1 M
Install 1 Package (+2 Dependent packages)
octave-devel should just install
(atlas-sse3 and atlas-sse3-devel should satisfy dependencies)
This is a problem with the packaging of ATLAS, not in that of octave. Reassigning.
Couple related issues:
- It would be good if there was a pkg-config or similar file that would allow a user to get the path of the atlas library directory for linking against.
- It would be good if when both atlas and atlas-sse3 were installed that the sse3 libraries were preferred.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 17 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 17. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '17'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 17 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged change the
'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 17 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2013-07-30. Fedora 17 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
