guile hard to use with new slib
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:54 EDT
The guile package's dependency on umb-scheme for slib
makes it difficult to upgrade slib. Maybe guile should
have it's own slib?
Could you be more specific about "difficult to upgrade"? The guile package only
requires that you have some version of umb-scheme installed, so I'm not sure how
upgrading umb-scheme makes a difference to guile.
[From private email, Dave is trying to use a newer version of slib, which is
shared beteen the umb-scheme and guile packages.]
Dave, can you try the new umb-scheme package at
http://people.redhat.com/nalin/umb-scheme-3.2-11.i386.rpm, and let me know how
it works for you? It has the latest version of slib (2c7) integrated with it.
The new umb-scheme-3.2-11 and guile-1.3-8 packages that will be in the next
Raw Hide release include slib 2c7, and share the slibcat file which needs to
be generated. Please reopen this bug if installing them doesn't work correctly
or even requires manual intervention that we'd need to automate.
