Comment 1 Ian McInerney 2021-02-11 11:24:25 UTC
Why is this blocking the Python 3.10 bug? The build failure is in the linking stage because of a symbol in ngspice, not Python.

Comment 2 Tomáš Hrnčiar 2021-02-11 14:24:52 UTC
It is there only for tracking purposes. We are rebuilding all Python packages in COPR and this way we know that breakage of the package is reported.

Comment 3 Steven A. Falco 2021-02-12 19:33:52 UTC
A new version of ngspice has been built [1] that corrects the problem.
