Description
Because sageongentoo doesn't use GAP_DIR
we are exposed to a code path that is not doctested and that fails with python3.
File "sage/libs/gap/util.pyx", line 199, in sage.libs.gap.util.initialize (/dev/shm/portage/scimathematics/sage9999/work/sage9999/srcpython3_6/build/cythonized/sage/libs/gap/util.c:4452) s = str_to_bytes(gap_root(), FS_ENCODING, "surrogateescape") File "sage/libs/gap/util.pyx", line 171, in sage.libs.gap.util.gap_root (/dev/shm/portage/scimathematics/sage9999/work/sage9999/srcpython3_6/build/cythonized/sage/libs/gap/util.c:4232) gapdir = filter(lambda dir:dir.strip().startswith('GAP_DIR'), gap_sh)[0] TypeError: 'filter' object is not subscriptable

I am not sure how to write that doctest. To test this properly we have to start a new instance of sage with GAP_ROOT_DIR
set to wrong value and then call gap_root
. I cannot seem to change the value inside of sage in a way that sticks until the gap_root
call.

LGTM.

I'm not wild about the fact that this will just crash with a notsouseful exception if the file is not found, or the line being searched for in that file is not found. But that was the case before this ticket as well so it's fine. I just thought that was worth pointing out.

Hopefully once the new gap package is sorted all that mess will disappear.

 Commit 842c6dfc15bd04c2e40441fb7b2c23608f210b9f deleted
sage: os.system("GAP_ROOT_DIR=/not_a_path sage c \"sage.libs.gap.util.gap_root()\"") The gap4.5.5.spkg (or later) seems to be not installed!
This breaks for me because I set GAP_ROOT_DIR
in sageenv
which is sourced on sage
startup. As far as I understand that is how sageenv
and GAP_ROOT_DIR
are intended to be used, so the doctest should be changed. Also I would expect this test to add significant overhead for little gain, since it has to go through the whole sage startup.

Fix in #26758.
Still have to write a doctest.
New commits:
Replace filter for compatibility with python3
