Description bugs 2014-12-30 21:15:51 UTC
The gnutls and gnutls-devel packages do not include the guile bindings for gnutls.  There also does not seem to be a subpackage containing the bindings.

$ yum install guile gnutls gnutls-devel
$ guile
scheme@(guile-user)> (use-modules (gnutls))
While compiling expression:
ERROR: no code for module (gnutls)

Comment 3 Nikos Mavrogiannopoulos 2015-01-07 08:27:55 UTC
Does the updated package fix your issue?

Comment 4 bugs 2015-01-07 19:23:27 UTC
No, it does not.  As far as I can tell, the new package also does not contain any Scheme files.

Comment 5 Nikos Mavrogiannopoulos 2015-01-07 21:48:01 UTC
Did you install the gnutls-guile package?

Comment 6 bugs 2015-01-07 21:56:38 UTC
No, I did not because I blindly followed the instructions above :)
I just installed gnutls-guile and it appears to do just what I want.

I do note two things, however:

- the package does not include compiled scheme files, so when first loading the gnutls module in the guile REPL the code is automatically compiled.  I think this behaviour is absent in other guile libraries, e.g the files contained in the guile-lib package (they all include the compiled version as well).
- there are compilation warnings, which may indicate missing dependencies:

scheme@(guile-user)> (use-modules (gnutls))
;;; note: auto-compilation is enabled, set GUILE_AUTO_COMPILE=0
;;;       or pass the --no-auto-compile argument to disable.
;;; compiling /usr/share/guile/site/gnutls.scm
;;; gnutls.scm:434:0: warning: possibly unbound variable `protocol/ssl3'
;;; gnutls.scm:435:0: warning: possibly unbound variable `protocol/tls1-0'
;;; gnutls.scm:436:0: warning: possibly unbound variable `protocol/tls1-1'
;;; compiled /home/rekado/.cache/guile/ccache/2.0-LE-4-2.0/usr/share/guile/site/gnutls.scm.go

I have never used the gnutls guile bindings before, so I don't know if the warnings indicate real problems.

Comment 7 Nikos Mavrogiannopoulos 2015-01-08 09:41:41 UTC
Thanks. Ludovic Court├Ęs (the author of the guile-gnutls) mentioned that the warnings are harmless, so we can ignore them for now.

Comment 8 Fedora Update System 2015-01-14 07:33:45 UTC
gnutls-3.3.11-2.fc21 has been pushed to the Fedora 21 stable repository.  If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
