Binary package hint: mit-scheme

package: mit-scheme

package: libltdl3
version: none

this package can't install in intrepid, because libltdl3 is not available.

here is the output of apt-get

~ $ sudo apt-get install mit-scheme

Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.

Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
that package should be filed.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  mit-scheme: Depends: libltdl3 (>= 1.5.2-2) but it is not installable
E: Broken packages

~ $ setup libltdl3
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Package libltdl3 is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
E: Package libltdl3 has no installation candidate

This probably only needs a rebuild, but building the package in a pbuilder fails.

gcc -Wl,-Bsymbolic-functions -o prpgsql.so -shared prpgsql.o -lpq -lc
./utabmd.sh

Unable to allocate process table.

Inconsistency detected.
make[3]: *** [utabmd.bin] Error 1

Maybe someone else wants to have a look, otherwise we will defer fixing this for jaunty, and maybe later backport the fix to intrepid.

This is unbelievable. Why is this package always broken?

Is there a reason why libtdl3 isn't included in Intrepid?

I have encountered the same problem installing mit-scheme on 8.10. As a workaround, the libltdl3 package from Debian lenny seems to work just fine when installed with GDebi; get it from

http://packages.debian.org/lenny/i386/libltdl3/download

I realise this is a bit of a cludge, but it works.

That is caused by the compiled (tiny?) scheme in ./utabmd.sh .
Related situation was reported by http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=778034 .

After the following command is executed, this package can be rebuilt without libltdl3;
% sudo sysctl -w vm.mmap_min_addr=0

However, this method seems to have a security problem.

I don't know how to reflect this issue to the package.

Any idea when it will be backported to Intrepid?

I've requested an SRU for Intrepid - it's being tracked in bug #341832. The bug was ACKed by the SRU team, so hopefully it should show up in intrepid-proposed within the next week or so (and intrepid-updates after another week or two).
