Description Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams 2006-01-23 04:15:22 UTC
Spec Name or Url:
SRPM Name or Url:
Description: The Numeric Python extensions is a set of extensions to the Python programming language which allows Python programmers to efficiently manipulate large sets of objects organized in grid-like fashion. These sets of objects are called arrays, and they can have any number of dimensions: one dimensional arrays are similar to standard Python sequences, two-dimensional arrays are similar to matrices from linear algebra. Note that one-dimensional arrays are also different from any other Python sequence, and that two-dimensional matrices are also different from the matrices of linear algebra.

This package also contains a version of f2py that works properly with it.

Comment 1 Ed Hill 2006-01-23 05:19:55 UTC
Hi Ignacio, this is just a very quick look, not a full review:

 + source matches upstream
 + specfile looks sane
 + license looks OK

 - the license should probably (?) be in %doc
 - in %build, CFLAGS is set twice (redundant)
 - build on FC-4 fails with this message:

+ /usr/bin/python -c 'import pkg_resources, numpy ; numpy.test(1, 1)'
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<string>", line 1, in ?
ImportError: No module named pkg_resources
error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.44127 (%check)

Comment 4 Ed Hill 2006-02-04 04:39:00 UTC
Hi Ignacio, heres a more thorough review:

 + good parts from comment #1 still good
 + rpmlint produces a bunch of warnings and errors but taking a
     look at them it appears that they're all just brain-dead
     rpmlint annoyances
 + package builds in mock for fc4-i386
 + BR list looks good
 + shared libs looks good (no *.la)
 + dir ownership OK
 + no %files dupes
 + permissions OK
 + has correct clean bits
 + code not content
 + some headers and libs are included but its acceptable
 + ran some simple examples and no segfaults -- good

and I don't see any blockers so its APPROVED.

Comment 5 Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams 2006-02-16 16:34:59 UTC
Built under FC4 and devel.
