Description Florian D. 2020-12-30 18:43:07 UTC
with sci-libs/openblas-0.3.9-r1 you got the libopenblas.a file in /usr/lib64
with sci-libs/openblas-0.3.13 there are only the .so files/symlinks

(regardless if you set eselect-ldso or not)
some programs demand the static lib, e.g. GAMESS

please provide the static lib again.
current workaround is to compile the source manually.

Reproducible: Always

Is there a reason you need it?

Are you sure? I don't see anything about static libs in

Not that I've tried to build given the fetch restrictions.

Either way, static-libs support doesn't get added to ebuilds without a very good reason (typically only for rescue tools, or if no shared version exists).

I compile GAMESS from source, the gentoo version is a bit outdated (upstream is changing the file without version number, so quite a mess for distribution packagers, file size/checksum will fail frequently, but this is off topic here)

the GAMESS install script demands the static lib... (perhaps a "static" USE flag would be favourable?)

> thanks.

Then we should fix the install script. I don't see a rationale for installing static-libs here.

(In reply to David Seifert from comment #5)
Indeed, I've found another install method, wich accepts the dynamic libs. 

my use-case is solved, the bug can be closed :)

but the initial idea from upstream was to faciliate the use of render-farms, so you can provide one executable and distribute it to the nodes without having to install openblas to each node. 

I think there is a reason why other math-libs have a "static-libs" USE flag, too, e.g. sci-libs/mkl, sci-libs/atlas
