Dear OCaml platform users and developers, I am working in an environment where OCaml (but not OPAM) is installed system-wide via RPMs, along with a few OCaml libraries. All of the libraries have corresponding OPAM packages. I would like to create an OPAM switch that is an alias of the "system" switch, but to also inform OPAM about the packages already installed system-wide. Simply creating a switch a as an alias of "system" seems to "not notice" any of the libraries installed via RPMs. Do you have any suggestions?
The set of RPMs installed on the system changes at glacial speeds, so having a dumb script into which I hard-code some information about the packages installed by system-wide RPMs is perfectly acceptable in my case, if a more elegant solution does not exist (yet): I just would like to know what information I would need to hard-code, and I am hoping that asking here can save me a few hours of hunting through the OPAM source code. In case it matters, this is OPAM 2.0 pre-release. Thank you in advance! -- Best, Evgeny ("Zhenya")
