New version which works with PARI 2.4.3: http://cage.ugent.be/~jdemeyer/sage/lcalc-20100428-1.23.p1.spkg

I have also notified the upstream contact Michael Rubinstein and sent him the patch lcalc-newpari.patch

The patch level for the new spkg should be 2, since we used p1 for #9665. This should fix the "already installed" problem reported by John Cremona in comment 180 at #9343.

Just noticed that, too. :)

There are also post-merge comments at #9665, I don't know if they should be included here or if there's even a new ticket for these.

comment:7 Changed 11 years ago by leif

Jeroen, could you describe in more detail which failure(s) this ticket is intended to fix (including Sage version, operating system, processor etc.)?

John Cremona has successfully installed and tested #9343 (unintentionally) without this new spkg, and I've also successfully installed the other to spkgs and applied the patches from #9343 on top of Sage 4.5.3.alpha0 + #9475 and #9717 on Fedora 13 x86 (Pentium 4 Prescott, gcc 4.4.4).

Of course lcalc wasn't (re)built in the above tests. (I'll try that later, currently running ptestlong without the lcalc package from here.)

comment:8 Changed 11 years ago by leif

Just for the record: SPKG.txt currently lacks a Dependencies section, the package has no spkg-check, and spkg-install uses make, not $MAKE...

comment:9 Changed 11 years ago by leif

  • Cc cremona added

In addition, it contains at least two or three files that should be deleted: some *.bak file, a *.swap.crap file and some static library (*.a) I think we don't need (correct me if I'm wrong here).

(In case Jeroen's patch here is now obsolete due to a meanwhile newer PARI version at #9343, which John Cremona is currently investigating, we could recycle this ticket to address the above mentioned issues.)

Updated spkg: http://www.warwick.ac.uk/staff/J.E.Cremona/lcalc-20100428-1.23.p2.spkg

(This version is based on lcalc-20100428-1.23.p1.spkg as merged in 4.5.2)

I made this before seeing the recent comments here. Feel free to add the Dependencies section etc -- I will not have time to do that for at least a day.

I've added a note at #9665 about this ticket.

  • Summary changed from Upgrade lcalc to pari 2.4.3 to Upgrade lcalc to work with Pari svn snapshot 12577 - a pre-release of Pari 2.4.3

I've changed the title and description a bit, to reflect the fact that #9343 is not Pari 2.4.3.

Not even Pari 2.4.2 has ever been released - there is only an alpha of that available.

You should perhaps have updated the spkg link to point to John Cremona's new p2 spkg, too. ;-)

I don't know where it is. In any case, it should not be a .p2, since the current one in Sage is lcalc-20100428-1.23.p0.spkg, to a revision should be called lcalc-20100428-1.23.p1.spkg.

I hope the

gcc -Wa,-W

(to suppress warnings from the assembler), has not got back in, as -W is not recognised by the Sun assembler and it creates an error.

(lcalc-20100428-1.23.p1.spkg from #9665 was merged into Sage 4.5.2.rc1)

comment:17 Changed 11 years ago by jdemeyer

I removed some .DS_Store and ._.DS_Store files from John's spkg and uploaded the result to http://cage.ugent.be/~jdemeyer/sage/lcalc-20100428-1.23.p2.spkg

  • Status changed from new to needs_review

I can see that this spkg does not depend on the upgrade to the new pari. This can be included before the latest version of pari is accepted. In couple of month, I will try to get Mike to use autotools for building. This will eliminate a lot of problems with spkg as of now. I am changing the status to needs review if it is ok with you.

comment:20 follow-ups: Changed 11 years ago by rishi

Following suggestion of Mitesh, I have small some small cleaning up of unnecessary files in patches and few lines in spkg-install over the changes of jdemeyer.

Perhaps do some of the clean-up I suggested above?

There are further minor things (like the date/version at the top of spkg-install; SAGE_DEBUG=yes usually disables optimization, unquoted environment variables, etc.).

I wonder if we should add (a) further patch(es) to get rid of some of the annoying warnings (cf. http://trac.sagemath.org/sage_trac/ticket/9343#comment:191 ff.), but we probably shouldn't do too much at this ticket.

I'm not sure if Cygwin support is required yet... ;-)

Could you upload an spkg patch for your changes (except file deletions) here?

It's a bit more convenient for reviewing and adding further changes...

I copied your spkg to http://cage.ugent.be/~jdemeyer/sage/lcalc-20100428-1.23.p2.spkg (like this, I don't have to update the descriptions of #9343 and #9592).

I've made an spkg that builds on Cygwin at #9775 based on the one here. It might make more sense to make any additional changes to the SPKG there.

Yes; hopefully #9845 gets reviewed soon s.t. this ticket won't get merged at all (positively reviewed though), since the former contains all changes from here.

Do we have a positive review here?

comment:35 Changed 11 years ago by leif

Doesn't bother me, but should we keep

# disable Cygwin build for now
if [ "$UNAME" = "CYGWIN" ]; then
#    cp ../../patches/Lcommandline_elliptic.cc .
    echo "Sorry, the lcalc build is currently broken"
    echo 1
fi

? (In case I by luck have looked at the current .p2 / its current patches/diffs.)

Fortunately there's a follow-up ticket to address the rest...

Is patches/Lcommandline_elliptic.cc.cygwin.diff up to date? Do we still use patches/Lcommandline_elliptic.cc.cygwin.*. Let's do any necessary updates at #9845.
