Description Jozsef Daniel 2007-02-21 09:58:19 UTC
If I try to install octave-2.1.73-r2 (this ebuild runs make check), it fails in octave.test/linalg/linalg.exp, on the file octave.test/linalg/qr-7.m.

It always and consistently fails there and just there, regardless of rebuilds. My cflags are sane, I'm not using anything that could be considered heavy optimization.


This is the respective part from test/octave.log:

EXEC: ../src/octave -f -q -p .:../src//:./../scripts// ./octave.test/linalg/qr-7

Octave Output:
ans = 0
FAIL: octave.test/linalg/qr-7.m

Comment 1 Markus Dittrich (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-02-21 13:41:43 UTC
Hi Jozsef,

I just went through all the tests on my x86 dev boxes and
they all pass. What blas and lapack versions are you using?

Comment 2 Jozsef Daniel 2007-02-21 17:31:12 UTC
Comment 3 Jozsef Daniel 2007-02-22 09:33:05 UTC
I tried compiling Octave with blas-reference, and it works. Apparently the problem seems to be in blas-atlas somewhere.
Comment 4 Markus Dittrich (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-02-22 13:41:44 UTC
Hmm, interesting! It would be nice if we could isolate the atlas
subroutine that triggers this so we can let upstream know.

Comment 5 Markus Dittrich (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-05-12 16:29:59 UTC
I am not quite sure how to proceed since I can't reproduce it at all.
Hence, I am closing this one as CANTFIX. Please re-open should there
be any news or any clues as to how to fix this.
