Description rainer 2007-09-13 18:51:57 UTC
maxima-5.13.0 fails to compile,
I am so far using maxima-5.11.0-r2.

binary-gcl/nregex.o:nregex.c:(.text+0x0): first defined here
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
sh: ./binary-gcl/raw_maxima: No such file or directory
Error in LET* [or a callee]: Cannot delete the file #p"./binary-gcl/raw_maxima": "No such file or directory".

Fast links are on: do (use-fast-links nil) for debugging
Broken at DELETE-FILE.  Type :H for Help.
 1 (Abort) Return to top level.

Here it hangs in some input mode which is unknown to me, I do not even how to 
exit this mode gracefully.

I just commited a newer maxima with the gcl-alt-link bit removed and set sbcl as the default lisp. Could you tell me whether it still hangs, I tried it with both gcl and sbcl on my boxes, and did fine.

Comment 3 Sverre Anmarkrud 2007-09-14 06:18:09 UTC
I had the exact same problem as the OP. Your new ebuild with sbcl as the default lisp intially failed as I did not have sbcl installed nor did the ebuild pull it in. Adding sbcl to maxima's useflags correctly pulled in sbcl and maxima compiled nicely.

This was just fixed in cvs. Thanks. 
We should keep this bug open if maxima-5.13.0 don't compile with gcl or other lisps. Report problems here.

Comment 6 rainer 2007-09-15 18:36:57 UTC
maxima-5.13.0 builds just fine for me after pulling in sbcl.
gcl has therefore become redundant and can be removed in my case. 

There seems to be a non-critical error in the ebuild:
/usr/portage/sci-mathematics/maxima/maxima-5.13.0.ebuild: line 103: !use: command not found
Comment 7 Marijn Schouten (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-09-19 17:26:15 UTC
Problems related to gcl are unlikely to get fixed and gcl may be removed entirely sooner or later.

Maxima builds fine with clisp or sbcl, so I suggest using those.
Comment 8 Colin Macdonald 2007-09-19 20:24:52 UTC
just a "me too".  also fixed by switching to sbcl.
Comment 9 2007-10-28 14:04:29 UTC
Since the current maxima ebuild uses sbcl as the default lisp and it warns about problems if the user chooses gcl, this bug shouldn't be closed?
Comment 10 Justin Lecher (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-06-23 07:48:30 UTC
As there is no new report for three years and the version in question left the tree I close this one. In case of objections, reopen or comment.
