Description (last modified by )
These GAP packages extend GAP kernel functionality. On the libgap side, this requires tinkering with the loader, see on #22626 Erik proposed a patch.
Here is a branch that implements this.
We also need to fix GAP's gac/libtool minitoolchain, used by some GAP pkgs. This involves patching of gac, and installing libtool, done in #27218.

That's not really the intended "libgap.so". I meant the one from GAP itself, in $SAGE_LOCAL/lib/libgap.so
. The redlopening the Python module might do it as well.
The other option, as I mentioned, would be to use Python's builtin sys.setdlopenflags(...)
, but that has to be called before importing any modules (e.g. sage.lib.gap.libgap
) that are linked with libgap. It would probably be good afterwards to set it back to its default which is RTLD_LAZY
.
But yes, it's probably more portable either way to give a full path to the relevant shared object.

oh, right  except it's .dylib
, not .so
. (I searched for libgap.so
, absentmindedly, found unique match, tried it :))
And indeed simply replacing libgap.so
with libgap.dylib
in the dlopen call suffices,
no need for the full path.
So this is easy to fix  except that in C I would have gone for a macro with the right extension, how is one supposed to do this in Cython?

Your plan isn't clear from the ticket description. Is your plan to add IO to the gap_packages
optional package? By the way: Could you remind me of the current status? I.e., is database_gap
now part of gap_packages
, or is it still independent? Is it supposed to be standard soon?

database_gap
spkg is there no more, it's part of gap
spkg; in fact, already
on #22626.
On #26856 Erik prefers to keep gap_packages
optional, at least for the upcoming (quick) release 8.6, to make Debian deadline of 12 Jan.
We have not included IO there, as it'd be an extra over the current gap_packages
, and something that needs more testing. Then we can extend gap_packages
(and merge everything into gap
, as we are already using the same tarball for gap
and gap_packages
anyway).
comment:6 Changed 3 years ago by
And now a question on the IO package: From its documentation, I see that it allows to pickle any GAP object into a file object. But that's cumbersome for serialisation in Sage.
In Sage, we want a __reduce__
method (or a different serialisation protocol) to return a data tuple that is eventually dumped to a string by standard Python tools. But it seems wrong to me if we have a complicated object (say, a cohomology ring) with several attributes, one of them being defined in libgap, and to write only this attribute directly to a file.
So, how do you envision libgap serialisation?
comment:7 followup: ↓ 8 Changed 3 years ago by
Would you rather prefer IO dumping to a string? (i.e. into memory, right?) I'm not sure, but perhaps this is doable via their streams; it sounds like a reasonable feature to add to IO, if it's not there yet.
As Python serialisation was never my concern, I have little idea about it.

This is a SageMath ticket. So, Python serialisation has to come into play sooner or later.
Having IO installed and working is a nice first step. But eventually,
sage: G = libgap.DihedralGroup(8) sage: loads(dumps(G))
should work. And also something like the following should work:
class Foo(Ring): def __init__(self, G): assert G in Groups() self.G = G ... def __reduce__(self): return Foo, self.G
and then
sage: loads(dumps(Foo(libgap.DihedralGroup(8))))
But that would be for two followup tickets. One for pickling, the other for making libgap aware of Sage's categories (thus, translating G in Groups()
into bool(G.IsGroup())
).

Since dlopen

If I remember correctly this is where io.c
expect some of its "include". I am planning to patch in sageongentoo rather than doing something like that.
Now going through the ticket and this bit in particular:
+ cdef void* handle + for suffix in ["so", "dylib", "dll"]: + handle = dlopen("libgap."+suffix, RTLD_NOW  RTLD_GLOBAL) + if handle != NULL: + break
where the point has been made that we don't need the full path. Now that starts to get unrelated but we do the same thing for libsingular in libs/singular.pyx
and we go to great length to get the full path even defining it in env.py
. If I read this correctly it is now way more complicated than it should be.

That's right. Perhaps the proper way would be to use sdh_install
rather than cp
, but on the other hand it's not clear to me whether $GAP_ROOT/src/
is a location supported by this machinery.
Erik, could you look into this?
(Of course, GAP having its include files in the same directory as C sources is a problem, due to their lack of proper install mechanism...)

I would like to handle the path for libgap.so (and its related variants) better, and had planned to do so soon before I saw all the recent work on this ticket.
I think the path to libgap should be set in sage.env
and should be possible to override by environment variable, analogous to the handling of SINGULAR_SO
(it could even repurpose the same code moreorless).

Hi!
I'm currently trying to compile a bunch of GAP packages in Sage environment, and apparently, I need to add this:

Is it the only way?
comment:43 Changed 2 years ago by
 Status changed from needs_review to needs_work
I just looked into this with Odile, who was trying to compile the IO package. I don't think patching the sources is the way. It's strange that the configure script, even given a path to the gaproot, doesn't add this. I will look into what is intended for this and see if there's a reason what we're doing with just passing withgaproot
to configure doesn't work.
Either it's a bug on our end, or a bug in the package's configure. Odile was able to work around it by adding CFLAGS=I../../ I../../gen
and that seemed to work (where ../../
here was the relative path to the gaproot). If we have to do that we can, but it still smells like a hack.
I also want to address https://trac.sagemath.org/ticket/26930#comment:30

I don't see why we should not patch package's source.
It's written with GAP's sources and headers alike living in GAPROOT/src/, and
naturally you can either create some foo/src to use in I
, or else, indeed, replace src/
with gap/
.
I would like to see the log of the failure (without these extra CFLAGS)

there is no guarantee that one does not break GAP's installation in Sage this way  and it happened in the past often that people tried installing this way GAP packages with kernel modules (such as IO) and ended up with broken Sage installations.

I don't see why we should not patch package's source.
It isn't necessary normally when building the package, so why should it have to be patched? ISTM the problem is just how GAP is being "installed" in Sage, which as we know is tricky since it doesn't have a proper installation system.
I think the stuff Odile pointed out last night about sysinfo.gap
clearly needs to be addressed (and in a separate ticket; this one is already trying to do too much).
For example, mine contains (this is just partial):
$ cat sysinfo.gap # This files has been generated by the GAP build system, # do not edit manually! GAParch=x86_64unknowncygwindefault64 GAP_ABI=64 GAP_HPCGAP=no GAP_ADDGUARDS2= GAP_BIN_DIR="/home/embray/src/sagemath/sage/local/var/tmp/sage/build/gap4.10.0/src" GAP_LIB_DIR="/home/embray/src/sagemath/sage/local/var/tmp/sage/build/gap4.10.0/src" GAP_CC="gcc" GAP_CFLAGS=" O2 g " GAP_CPPFLAGS=" I/home/embray/src/sagemath/sage/local/var/tmp/sage/build/gap4.10.0/src/gen I/home/embray/src/sagemath/sage/local/var/tmp/sage/build/gap4.10.0/src/src I/home/embray/src/sagemath/sage/local/var/tmp/sage/build/gap4.10.0/src DHAVE_CONFIG_H I/home/embray/src/sagemath/sage/local/include " GAP_LDFLAGS=" L/home/embray/src/sagemath/sage/local/lib L/home/embray/src/sagemath/sage/local/lib Wl,rpath,/home/embray/src/sagemath/sage/local/lib Wl,stack,16777216" GAP_LIBS=" lgmp lz lreadline "
In other words, it puts in a lot of paths, which seem to be important for building many packages, but that reference the SPKG build directory and not the actual final GAP_ROOT location (under $SAGE_LOCAL/share/gap
).
So I think this probably needs to be fixed up when "installing" GAP, at a minimum.

On the other hand, the problem of using src/ prefix for includes in quite a few GAP packages seems to be a bit too big to patch.

I added yet one more ticket for working on a way to get the libgap.so: #27230
The idea, as in comment:30, was to use the same code for both SINGULAR_SO
and a new LIBGAP_SO
variable which serves a similar purpose.
If that code ends up being contentious we can fall back on a simpler method, though I think either way it makes sense to reuse the code used for SINGULAR_SO
as well, rather than just looping over some extension names.

If you want, please also try merging #27230 into this and adding a LIBGAP_SO
to sage.env
like I suggested in that ticket, and then use that instead of the loop you have currently around dlopen
. That's a good observation that for Python 3 it will have to pass bytes to dlopen()
, so you can use str_to_bytes(LIBGAP_SO)
for that.

no, io package is still optional. As you see, this ticket does two things:
 fixes Sage's libgap interface to allow kernel modules
 adds two packages (both needing the 1st thing) to its optional spkg gap_packages

I wouldn't necessarily call it "harmless" but if it's a typo that's okay; I just wondered if there was a real reason or not.

Seems to work on OS X. At least there is more stuff (io

What else would you like me to check?

but some GAP packages were not fully functional, as their binaries (only few GAP packages have these) were installed in wrong directories...

could you run tests, just to have another data point? (I tested on OSX 10.13, I don't have 10.14, my OSX box is too old for it).

You just need to pull the branch, the GAP tarball is the same. So can be done over GSM :)
After merging the branch, you'll need to do
./sage f gap_packages && make ptestlong
And if there are errors in tests, please posts them (from logs/ptestlong.log
file).
Thanks!

On Cygwin I'm getting a few cases of this failure in src/sage/coding/linear_code.py
:
sage t long src/sage/coding/linear_code.py ********************************************************************** File "src/sage/coding/linear_code.py", line 3134, in sage.coding.linear_code.AbstractLinearCode.weight_distribution Failed example: C.weight_distribution(algorithm="leon") # optional  gap_packages (Guava package) Exception raised: Traceback (most recent call last): File "/home/embray/src/sagemath/sage/local/lib/python2.7/sitepackages/sage/doctest/forker.py", line 671, in _run self.compile_and_execute(example, compiler, test.globs) File "/home/embray/src/sagemath/sage/local/lib/python2.7/sitepackages/sage/doctest/forker.py", line 1095, in compile_and_execute exec(compiled, globs) File "<doctest sage.coding.linear_code.AbstractLinearCode.weight_distribution[8]>", line 1, in <module> C.weight_distribution(algorithm="leon") # optional  gap_packages (Guava package) File "sage/misc/cachefunc.pyx", line 1950, in sage.misc.cachefunc.CachedMethodCaller.__call__ (build/cythonized/sage/misc/cachefunc.c:10265) w = self._instance_call(*args, **kwds) File "sage/misc/cachefunc.pyx", line 1826, in sage.misc.cachefunc.CachedMethodCaller._instance_call (build/cythonized/sage/misc/cachefunc.c:9750) return self.f(self._instance, *args, **kwds) File "/home/embray/src/sagemath/sage/local/lib/python2.7/sitepackages/sage/coding/linear_code.py", line 3184, in weight_distribution lines = subprocess.check_output([os.path.join(guava_bin_dir, 'wtdist'), input]) File "/home/embray/src/sagemath/sage/local/lib/python2.7/subprocess.py", line 223, in check_output raise CalledProcessError(retcode, cmd, output=output) CalledProcessError: Command '['/home/embray/src/sagemath/sage/local/share/gap/pkg/guava3.14/bin/x86_64unknowncygwindefault64/wtdist', '/home/embray/.sage/temp/NAVIBrick/6764/tmp_7ZlhoX::code']' returned nonzero exit status 11
The "exit status 11" indicates that the wtdist
program, whatever that is, from the guava package is segfaulting. Which is odd because I don't remember having any problem with that before, and it's not clear why it would start with this ticket (unless maybe it's doing something with the IO module that it didn't do when it was unavailable).
I'm going to try backing out the changes from this ticket and rebuilding gap_packages
again just to rule out the possibility that the problem is somehow related to this ticket.
comment:92 Changed 2 years ago by
we didn't build this part of guava before, that's why...
comment:93 Changed 2 years ago by
I don't see anything explicitly in this ticket that would cause it to start being built though, so I'm a little confused. Is it because we didn't have #27218? Does it just, silently not build or something?
comment:94 Changed 2 years ago by
AFAICT the code that uses it doesn't check if the wtdist
program exists or not or anything like that, so it should have just failed before with a command not found or something if it wasn't being built...
comment:95 Changed 2 years ago by
Well I was able to reproduce that issue with gap_packages
prior to this ticket so I guess it's unrelated. I'll make a new ticket for it. I'm not overly concerned about it in this case since gap_packages is not installed by default anyways.
As a side note, I realized in testing this that it this ticket should also bump the patch version on the SPKG version.
We should also clean up the commit history. I can go ahead and do that...
comment:96 Changed 2 years ago by
oops, sorry, I meant it was not installed before GAP 4.10.
I gather it could be something trivial like whether or not there is .exe
suffix...
Yes, please, bump up the version and rebase. The followup to this is #27295.

on OSX the dlopen call does not work. However, it does if given full path to the dll, i.e.
src/sage/libs/gap/util.pyx
name resolution procedures are different on OSX. Actually, I don't know what's happening on Linux so that libgap.so is found. Perhaps, it's already loaded on Linux, but not on OSX?
