python-scipy uninstallable (needs gfortran transition)

Bug Description

I cannot install python-scipy because it depends on python-numpy. But somehow, it seems to conflict with python-numpy at the same time. Only works, if I do 'dpkg --force-conflicts'. The not very instructive error in Synaptic is 'python-scipy:'. Apt-get says ' python-scipy: depends on: python-numpy (>= 1:1.0.2) but should not be installed' (translated from the German output).

I am using Hardy amd64 with all updates installed until today, python-scipy is 0.6.0-5ubuntu1, python-numpy is 1:1.0.4-5ubuntu2.

right, has to be updated to build with gfortran, plus it should be tested before upload.

This will need the new suitesparse from unstable, which will require a FFe.

The PPA packages solve the dependency problems for me. I also ran today a 3 hour long simulation with scipy/numpy and done analysis with your version of Matplotlib without any breakage.

Installs for me as well. The basic things, I have tested so far, work without a problem.

William Grant (wgrant) wrote :

Thanks for the testing! I'm confident that everything works, but I can't upload it all to Hardy yet, as it requires a suitesparse transition, and one of suitesparse's reverse dependencies (petsc) now FTBFS. Once that's sorted out, I'll upload them all to Hardy.

The petsc FTBFS is bug #199256.

This bug was fixed in the package python-scipy - 0.6.0-8ubuntu1

python-scipy (0.6.0-8ubuntu1) hardy; urgency=low

  * Sync from Debian unstable.
    - Builds with gfortran, so is installable again. (LP: #187004)
  * debian/rules: Fix a few FTBFSes (LP: #199031):
    - Don't remove LICENSE.txt, or python-central gets angry.
    - Make sed look for stuff in /usr/share/pyshared, rather than the old
      python-central directory.
    - Unset {LD,F}FLAGS, as it FTBFS otherwise due to a braindead distutils.
  * debian/control: Comply with DebianMaintainerField.

python-scipy (0.6.0-8) unstable; urgency=low

  * Build depend on libsuitesparse (>= 3.1.0-3)
  * Build depends fixed to use gfortran based lapack and blas (Closes: #466868)

python-scipy (0.6.0-7) unstable; urgency=low

  * Bumped the version, because python-numpy conflicts with python-scipy (<=
    0.6.0-6). This compiles against the old suitesparse, but it makes the
    package installable and working again.

python-scipy (0.6.0-6) UNRELEASED; urgency=low

  * debian/control
    - uniforming both Vcs-Svn and Vcs-Browser fields
