A patch for swig just entered its devel project (devel:tools:building) which adds support to swig for octave >= 3.8.0. This should allow re-enabling of octave bindings for both plplot and mathgl (both of which use swig to generate its octave bindings) in this project. I request that a link to the swig package in devel:tools:building (which has the latest fixes etc.) be created in science project so that the fixed swig can be used for building packages here.

Could a repository maintainer please extend the signing key for this project?

osc signkey --extend science

Ismail Donmez namtrac wrote about 1 year ago

Done now. Thanks!

Are we ready to enable building against openSUSE:42 and see how that works? If there are build failures, I am willing to go through them one-by-one and fix these, then submit from Factory to 42 the ones that work finally (no reason why they won't, but not counting chickens before...) Just wanted to know if there is any objection to enabling the 42 build target. Thanks!

I don't think you can harm anything by doing so. Go ahead.

openSUSE:42 build target was enabled, but I need to solve problems with mvapich2.

Could the Meta file for science project be updated to add "openSUSE:Factory:PowerPC" for ppc64/ppc64le ? I do not have write access to do it myself. eg: https://build.opensuse.org/project/meta/home:michel_mno:branches:science

Is it possible to enable build for openSUSE_13.1 (Evergreen) again please? Thank you :)

Dmitry Roshchin Dmitry_R wrote about 1 month ago

It's possible, but openSUSE 13.1 is out of support. Are there any reasons?

Christian Wittmer computersalat wrote about 1 month ago

Yes, it is out of 'official' support by openSUSE, but still in use as current 'Evergreen' release ... In the 'Evergreen' ML we got the message that 'science' repository is gone. So I am here to please the maintainer to readd openSUSE_13.1 as long as it is Evergreen. That would be really nice :) Thank you very much :)

Dear maintainers, since a couple of days I realize my 13.1 system does not get updated properly anymore because of the science repository being down.

There is a substantial community using openSUSE 13.1 based on its evergreen status. See https://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Evergreen, and see also the questions about the science repository, coming in on the Evergreen mailing list at http://lists.rosenauer.org/pipermail/evergreen/2016-June/date.html

Would you please be so kind as to re-enable http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/science/openSUSE_13.1/ again. I'm certain, that not only myself would very much appreciate this.

Thank you so much for your consideration.

I also would like to endorse this request, please add Opensuse 13.1 again!

And, concering "out of support": SLE-11 SP3 is looooong out of support, the supported version is SLE-11 SP4 ...

Will there really no mercy for openSUSE 13.1 users from this repos maintainers?

Tomas Cech sleep_walker wrote 25 days ago

@mark314, would that be possible that you'll just create link package from the packages you use to some your project and enable openSUSE_13.1 repository target there?
