Bug Description

I installed FEniCS 1.0-beta on Fedora 15 (x86_64) using But I had problems with a bug(?) included in trilinos; after compiling for about 5 minutes I got following error message:

Scanning dependencies of target teuchos
make[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/local/fenics/SRC/fenics-1.0-beta/trilinos-10.6.4-Source/dorsal_build_dir'

Fortunately I already found a patch (for an older version of trilinos, which worked for me); see here:
bug report =>
patch =>;filename=trilinos_gcc46_build.fix;att=1;bug=625027

After applying the patch, I had to remove the "dorsal_build_dir" in "trilinos-10.6.4-Source" and run ./ again.

1) Could you integrate that patch in dorsal, like here dorsal-1.0-beta/FEniCS/patches/?
2) Could you add the platform "Fedora release 15 (Lovelock)" to the supported platforms? I used the fedora14.platform and worked fine.

Regards, Michele
