Bug Description

After the Precise Pangolin upgrade, it appears that libgoogle-glog-dev and libgoogle-glog0 are not available. Without the -dev package, asgard cannot be compiled. Without -glog0, it may not be dpkg'd. We should find a solution for this problem pretty fast.

Ubuntu Forum:

I hope this type of outsourcing is allowed. If not I will retract posts asap.

Thanks for chasing this Dan. We wont be able to build the Ubuntu package for the PPA without the glog library.

We have some options:

1. Discover the reason (if any) for glog not being included into Precise. Attempt to resolve before 6/15.

2. Disable logging in the 6/15 release so that we do not need glog as a dependency.

3. Replace glog by writing a logger or switching to another logger.

Here's a workaround:

1. Download

2. Compile and Install
tar xvf glog-0.3.2.tar.gz
cd glog-0.3.2
sudo make install

Asgard compilation seems to work after that.

3. Compile Asgard like usual. To run, prefix the command like this:

LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib ./asgard scripts/

Unfortunately, this doesn't solve the problem with our Ubuntu package. We still need the libgoogle-glog0 package in order to build a Precise .deb package.

Got here from Dan's AskUbuntu question.

1. Here's why it was pulled from Precise -- at the request of the Debian QA team:

2. If a ppa will do, 0.3.1-1ubuntu1 (from Oneiric) appears to compile just fine on Precise.

Thanks for finding the RoQA Ishaan.

r240 against lp:asgard disables glog in Asgard--which allows us to defer fixing our logging situation to the 8/15 release. We may need to explore another logging solution for that release.

Quantal and Raring add back libgoogle-glog0. I'm content to close this bug.
