Description Thomas Veith (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-04-28 07:39:45 UTC
Attached ebuild and patches build GAP, a system for computational discrete algebra with particular emphasis on, but not restricted to computational group theory.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:


Actual Results:  
The tests run okay, below a log: 
 
gap> 3^80; 
147808829414345923316083210206383297601 
gap> tst := Filename( DirectoriesLibrary("tst"), "testall.g" );; 
gap> Read(tst); 
You should start GAP4 using:  `gap -N -A -x 80 -r -m 100m'. The more 
GAP4stones you get, the faster your  system is.  The runtime of 
the following tests (in general)  increases.  You should expect 
about 100000 GAP4stones on a Pentium 3, 1GHz. 
The `next' time is an approximation of the running time for the next test. 
 
Architecture: i686-pc-linux-gnu-gcc

New Version

There is a new version of this application, gap-4.4.10, and also for severe packages, as xtom, that now is in the 1.1.2 version, and the latest packages-2008_02_05-17_04_UTC.tar.bz2.

The ebuild i've attached have severe errors... I'll  try to fix it, if somebody can do it earlier please do it.

Updated ebuild.

Bumped version of 'PACKAGES', since I couldn't download the old version. Made it build, except for building of 'pargap' which I commented out. (Think 'make' went ultra recursive on pargap, and called itself thousands of times deep.)

I know that may be a bit insane but could we split the packages?
Or even make them into separate ebuilds (I know more work).
I am making this bug a dependency of the sage bug and sage only
needs Guava. I also just read the list of packages you compile,
I would have thought from gap web page that there were more of them
in that tarball (will be checking later today).

Comment 14 François Bissey 2008-07-04 21:28:30 UTC
Funny that, I don't own this bug or bug #201321 so I cannot
make them depend on each other :(
Really thinking of becoming a dev just for this.
Comment 15 Sébastien Fabbro (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-07-05 10:15:57 UTC
This ebuild has also been in the science overlay, but I haven't compared the two ones yet. Andrey any insights on this?

I have had a look as I also tried the science overlay one. There are 2
main differences:
*the science overlay ebuild is plain gap with the standard shipped package, 
this one includes optional, reviewed, gap packages.
*patch - in the science overlay no patch but an .el file for amd64.
Here we have a strange config patch that definitely need reviewing, and
2 patches on the optional packages.

For sage I want at least one optional package: Guava which is build with
this ebuild. Ideally we would want to either to have use flags for individual
optional package or separate ebuild (although it may take some figuring out).
Separate ebuild has the advantage that one can update a package without
updating gap.

Exactly. I think separate ebuilds would be much better (or maybe ebuilds for some thematic groups of gap packages, like in texlive). Not everybody will want *all* gap packages. I planned to write such separate ebuilds, but has not yet done so.

I don't understand the configure patch here. gap compiles fine without it, so, why create future maintainance problems by patches? Patches for specific gap packages need to be reviewed by a gap (and group theory!) specialist, I am neither. Ideally, such patches should go upstream and be reviewed by the gap project.

I'll have a look if I can supplement the science overlay ebuild (which only installed the core gap) by ebuilds for gap packages (at least the most useful ones).
Comment 18 Riccardo Brasca 2012-06-12 07:08:13 UTC
Is there any news about gap coming in portage?

Is there something wrong with the version in sci overlay?

New version -- gap-4.5_p5

I used old ebuild (4.4.12) to create new one. 
However I am not programmer nor I know ebuild writing customs so please have a look inside and correct what should be!

In 4.5 version there were some changes, including readline support, gmp support and new packaging scheme.

Detailed instructions I followed while writing this ebuild are below.
http://www.gap-system.org/Download/INSTALL

Added USE flags:
readline: adds support for sys-libs/readline
static-gmp: builds dev-libs/gmp _shipped_ with gap (currently 5.0.5)
gmp: use system dev-libs/gmp
Comment 21 Marek 2012-09-18 12:52:54 UTC
There is an open issue with gap-packages. How should we deal with them?

(instalation as in Section 7 of 
http://www.gap-system.org/Download/INSTALL
)

packages USE flag? GAP_PACKAGES?

I don't use vim nor emacs so I didn't check 'magic' happening in ebuild when enabling related USE.

Cheers,
