[gentoo-dev] [PATCH 2/2] sci-libs/fflas-ffpack: new package for finite-field linear algebra.

2020-04-02 Thread Michael Orlitzky
This is a straightforward import of the latest fflas-ffpack-2.4.3.ebuild that François Bissey has been maintaining in the sage-on-gentoo overlay, with only a few minor changes: * I added a "+" to the LICENSE to match the upstream LGPL-2.1+. * I switched the openmp check to use

[gentoo-dev] [PATCH 1/2] profiles/desc/cpu_flags_x86.desc: add avx512dq and avx512vl.

2020-04-02 Thread Michael Orlitzky
These two flags are already supported by cpuid2cpuflags, but so far no package in ::gentoo uses them. The forthcoming sci-libs/fflas-ffpack will use them, however, and -- given that they're CPU flags whose names are fixed -- it seems most sensible to add them globally right away. Bug:

[gentoo-dev] [PATCH 0/2] New x86 CPU flags and a package to use them.

2020-04-02 Thread Michael Orlitzky
Sending to the list because it adds two new global CPU flags, already supported by cpuid2cpuflags but not listed in the profiles yet. Michael Orlitzky (2): profiles/desc/cpu_flags_x86.desc: add avx512dq and avx512vl. sci-libs/fflas-ffpack: new package for finite-field linear algebra.

[gentoo-portage-dev] [PATCH v2] NeededEntry: infer implicit soname from file basename (bug 715162)

2020-04-02 Thread Zac Medico
For dynamic libraries, infer an implicit DT_SONAME setting from the file basename, which is consistent with dynamic linking behavior in practice. This makes it possible to resolve soname dependencies for musl's libc.so which lacks a DT_SONAME setting. Bug: https://bugs.gentoo.org/715162

Hello, I was reviewing about how to enable globally on my system the usage of libappindicator and I realized that we have multiple names for that in the tree. "ayatana" is the only global one, while other packages are using "indicator", "libindicate", "appindicator"... Personally I would merge
