Description (last modified by )
#29003 introduced 2stage installation of generated *.pc files,
via src/lib/pkgconfig
 but did not provide a way to clean them up at all. And this is a problem (cf. e.g. #29071).
Also, in some installations, repeated installations this code leads to 'permission denied' errors when trying to overwrite readonly files:

This ticket revises the installation as follows:
configure
no longer creates .pc files in the build tree Instead it creates rules in
make/Makefile
that create the .pc files inSAGE_LOCAL
.  Before pc files are installed into
SAGE_LOCAL
, the targets are removed, to avoid permission problems
This ticket does not solve everything. There may still be problems when switching from a system library to an spkgprovided library. We will use the followup ticket #29387 (Complete solution for installing the generated *.pc files) to address this problem.

Replying to mkoeppe:
I don't like the idea of requiring a Fortran compiler to even run
./configure
successfully.
(As you can see at https://github.com/mkoeppe/sage/runs/411989461, all "minimal" installs fail with configure: error: in
/sage':
configure: error: cannot compile a simple Fortran program`.)
comment:7 in reply to: ↑ 2 Changed 21 months ago by
 Description modified (diff)
Replying to mkoeppe:
My suggestion would be to rewrite this as a script package instead of putting things into
src/
. This stuff really does not belong intosrc/
.
Perhaps we should just create var/
next to src/
and put these things there?
comment:8 Changed 21 months ago by
No, I don't think so. These are configuregenerated files of sagethedistribution  like build/make/Makefile
. There's no need for a new top level.
Let me take care of this ticket after #29071 is done.

comment:24 Changed 20 months ago by
Agreed on the first two points in the description.
Don't agree on sage_system_blas_facade and the changes to Makefile.in. I don't see how it's "specialpurpose code". It's a quite generic solution that you seem to be replacing with "specialpurpose code" that's very specific to openblas. This ticket was needed for more than just blas.

comment:29 Changed 19 months ago by
I also don't quite understand the need to create a special script package, instead of adjusting build/make/Makefile.in
.
Is there a technical problem?
comment:30 Changed 19 months ago by
It seemed to be an elegant solution when I wrote this a month ago
comment:31 Changed 19 months ago by
It seems that your package handles more that blas/lapack pc files, no? Perhaps it just is wrongly named?
comment:32 Changed 19 months ago by
That's basically my question regarding gsl.pc above, I guess.
comment:33 Changed 19 months ago by
there is also a bug: PKG_CONFIG_PATH is pointing to the wrong directory, so these newly installed pc files are not found:
(sagesh) dima@fedora:sagetracmirror$ echo $PKG_CONFIG_PATH /home/dima/sagetracmirror/local/lib/pkgconfig:. (sagesh) dima@fedora:sagetracmirror$ find . name cblas.pc ./build/pkgs/sage_system_blas_facade/src/cblas.pc ./src/lib/pkgconfig/cblas.pc
comment:34 Changed 19 months ago by
oops, I mean, they are just not installed at all. PKG_CONFIG_PATH is correct, but pc files are not there, or anywhere, except the old location

comment:36 Changed 19 months ago by
What does build/pkgs/sage_system_blas_facade/spkginstall
look like on your machine?
comment:37 Changed 19 months ago by
here it is:
#! /usr/bin/env bash PCFILES="blas.pccblas.pclapack.pc" SAGE_PKGCONFIG="$SAGE_LOCAL/lib/pkgconfig" mkdir p "$SAGE_PKGCONFIG" if [ n "$PCFILES" ]; then cd build/pkgs/sage_system_blas_facade/src && cp P $PCFILES "$SAGE_PKGCONFIG" fi
also note that the original openblas.pc is in SAGE_ROOT
comment:38 Changed 19 months ago by

comment:40 Changed 19 months ago by
but this does not make any difference. As far as I can see, spkginstall
of sage_system_blas_facade
never gets run  I'm lost in untangling the reason for this.
