Review swaps

I have two packages that need review for a
sagemath 7.6 update:

<a href="" title=""></a>
[Review Request: python-cysignals - Interrupt and signal handling for Cython]

<a href="" title=""></a>
[Review Request: python-fpylll - A Python wrapper for fplll]

python-fpylll needs python-cysignals, so, to review both,
one possible option is:

$ mkdir cysignals
$ cp python*-cysignals*.rpm cysignals
$ createrepo cysignals/
$ fedora-review -r -n python-fpylll -L cysignals


Review swaps

I have two packages for review. These should be very
simple reviews.

python-pathlib2: <a href="" title=""></a>
python-ipykernel: <a href="" title=""></a>


review-swap: brial

This package is required for an update to sagemath 7.3.

Brial is a replacement to PolyBori, and needs a bundled significantly
different Cudd, so, cannot use the system one.

It has only one conflict, brial-devel conflicts with polybori-devel.

Newer sagemath will use it, so polybori is likely to get orphaned
at some point:

Review swaps


Two easy reviews. These are required to update to sagemath-6.8.
[I will work to update to sagemath-6.9...]

Quick C++ question for C++ experts :)

Is this expected to not compile with -fno-implicit-templates?

$ cat
#include <string>
std::string test(int i)
std::string t;
std::string s = "(";
t = "";
for (int r = i; r; r>>=1) {
if (r & 1)
t = "1" + t;
t = "0" + t;
s += t;
s += ")";
return s;

main(int argc, char *argv[])
std::string s = test(16);
return 0;

$ g++ -fno-implicit-templates

Update to 0ad-0.18


In case you would like to see it faster in Fedora :)

0ad-0.18 needs mozjs31, so I need this package reviewed
and approved:
<a href="" title=""></a>

For rawhide I also need gloox rebuilt for the new
c++ string and list abi:
<a href="" title=""></a>

I pushed commits for 0ad and 0ad-data only for rawhide,
but requiring the new mozjs31 package, and gloox rebuilt,
"it works for me".


what is, regarding to std::string and std::list, plan to rebuild packages and better procedures?

In my case, I was updating coin-or packages when one of then
started failing at link time, only on i686, like this:

undefined reference to
std::char_traits<char>, std::allocator<char> > const&)'

I tried to, temporarily fix it by, only on i686 building with
"-D_GLIBCXX_USE_CXX11_ABI=0" in CXXFLAGS. It did work
on a clean mock chroot, but would fail with a core dump during
%check in koji.

taskotron failure to see dependencies (...has inferior architecture )

Automatic push to stable based on karma has been
disabled for this update due to failure of an AutoQA

But I cannot see the error:

not ok - depcheck for Bodhi update sagemath-6.1.1-6.fc20 # FAIL

dnf vs yum

I am sorry I did not fully follow the discussions earlier.

I only recall it was supposed to exist some compatibility
layer at some point.

But I keep all the time needing to

$ sudo rm -f /var/lib/rpm/__db*

because I forget and use yum instead of dnf in rawhide.

I am not really needing anything special, just install
a package, or run "dnf update" to update rawhide.


rpath/runpath in binaries


I missed the memo about it not being a fatal error now (rpmlint still tells it
is an error), but just in case, before attempting to enforce it a
package review,
I checked what I have right now in my rawhide box...

$ for f in /usr/bin/*; do file $f | grep -q ELF && chrpath -l $f |
grep -v "no rpath or runpath tag found"; done
/usr/bin/afm2pl: RPATH=/builddir/build/BUILD/texlive-2014/source/inst/lib

How to make a buildroot override for f21

I am making an update and to speed things up I made overrides
for f19 and f20, but for f21 I get

Could not determine release for coin-or-Ipopt-3.11.8-1.fc21 with tags ['f21']

Probably this is just a ping to update infrastructure :-)

(updated coin-or-Ipopt is required for just approved coin-or-Bonmin


review swap - coin-or-Osi

The package follows the same pattern of other coin-or
packages already in Fedora, should be trivial do review.

libgd breakage


It is taking a bit too long for some dependencies to be rebuilt
in rawhide.

Could a compat-libgd be provided please? I am receiving daily
mails about broken deps, already posted to $pkg-owner@ asking
what I could help, but still no response neither problems corrected.
Remi Collet told me it appears there are some FTBFS packages in
the cycle.

I would like to also start working on packaging sagemath 5.10,
but am not providing as much time to work on fedora as I would
want, so also not providing a compat-libgd sample package,


git rebase request on a project

Sorry if this is a dumb question, but I cannot find any information.

I would like to have "git rebase master" on f16, f17, and f18
branches of <a href="" title=""></a>
I once messed it a bit by adding a commit only to branches and
later merging master, now I cannot merge without a "merge master"
commit, and am not allowed to push myself a "git rebase master"


Review swap: c-graph

This should be a very easy one

Megaglest unit moving error workaround

In case you have this issue, I just "rediscovered" a workaround. Add


to $HOME/.megaglest/glestuser.ini

you probably will want to remove it later, once the problem is corrected
in mesa.

Initial fedora and upstream bug reports:
<a href="" title=""></a>
<a href=";aid=3598159&amp;group_id=300350&amp;atid=1266776" title=";aid=3598159&amp;group_id=300350&amp;atid=1266776">;aid=3598159&amp;group_...</a>

The problem appears to also affect f17 users, not just rawhude, based
on <a href="" title=""></a>


rpmlib(X-CheckUnifiedSystemdir) is needed by filesystem-3-2.fc17.x86_64

I know I got what I deserved by attempting to "fix" by hand the move
from / to /usr, just did need to boot from the fedora16 dvd, mount lvm
root and finish my "fix"; brain fart, and cyclic dep on moving /lib64
to /usr/lib64 and then a symlink, leaving it with all binaries failing
due to missing /lib64/
After that, while it is finishing updating to rawhide right now, I did
go search for documentation, but still find that
<a href="" title=""></a>
is not much clear about it.

Self introduction and sponsorship request


I made a first contribution package for xedit, that happens to be the
text editor I use for most tasks :-) see

I would like to contribute to SciTech SIG.
