Hello,

Mitesh Patel and I have released 4.5.2.alpha1. Source tarball is at

http://sage.math.washington.edu/home/release/sage-4.5.2.alpha1/sage-4.5.2.alpha1.tar

Upgrade path:

http://sage.math.washington.edu/home/release/sage-4.5.2.alpha1/sage-4.5.2.alpha1/

This release has been tested on sage.math and bsd.math. A build on
t2.math is underway. Please build and test.

This release is now pretty much in feature freeze. We don't plan on
merging any tickets unless they fix blocker issues.

* Known issues

This release includes two tiny unreviewed change: I merged #5396, which
makes lcalc a build prerequisite for the Sage library. Rather than leave
things as they were and have everyone's build fail, I changed
spkg/standard/deps. Someone should test that lcalc really is a build
prereq for the library by removing line 442 of spkg/standard/deps and
trying to build alpha1; it should fail with an error as seen in
http://trac.sagemath.org/sage_trac/ticket/5396#comment:86. Someone
should test that.

The second unreviewed change is the deletion of several extra files in
spkg/standard, as I mentioned in
https://groups.google.com/group/sage-release/t/b6fd67d4d4543129. In the
unlikely case that those files were important or necessary, we can just
copy them from the alpha0 tarball.

Blocker ticket #9582 has not been fixed, so there will be at least one
doctest failure on OS X.

There are a couple Sphinx warnings from the Matlab interface. A ticket
for those will be opened shortly.

Mitesh saw a doctest failure in doc/en/tutorial/latex.rst involving
"\usepackage{tikz}", so please confirm if you see that.

By the way, we merged a new SageNB package chiefly to fix a doctest
(#9554) and to merge #3342's sage and sagenb repository patches into the
same Sage release.

Dan,

that's risky. If the builds are performed in parallel, the order of builds would
not be fixed, so what works for 99 people, might fail for the 100th.

The best way to solve it is to find out for sure whether lcalc is a prerequisite
or not by analysis of the source code - not trial and error.


On my Sun Ultra 27 (a relatively fast machine), lcalc takes only 12 seconds to
build, so I doubt making it an unnecessary prerequisite would have a major
impact on the build time of Sage. The Sage library takes about 5 minutes to
build on here, and packages like Singular take over 9 minutes, so I don't think
this would slow down parallel builds significantly.

Haven't seen that before. What platform did you build this on?

It didn't happen in alpha0 though. Should I try rebuilding lcalc?

With 64-bit KUbuntu 9.10 on Intel Core Duo long tests passed after
parallel package building.

On 32-bit Ubuntu 10.04 on Pentium M I get the same results as Harald,
though the non-zero value in the lcalc test is slightly different
(~e-18).

I should have a patch together soon for the latex/tikz failure at trac
9607.

Ubuntu 9.04 x86_64 (Core2, gcc 4.5.0, native code):

make build: OK (parallel build with 12 jobs)
make doc: OK (except the already reported 2 warnings and *)
make testlong: OK (all tests passed with #9607 applied)


Builds/tests on two 32-bit systems in progress...

Btw, thanks for managing this release, well done so far. :-)

There is one numerical noise from #5396 ticket. I will write a patch
which tests that L.value(0.5).abs() is less than 1e-14, instead of
current value of 0.


The long messages giving out some data about L function are from a
test function in lcalc library. It is helpful in testing. It just
prints out to standard output. Please ignore them.

I'm building on a bunch of machines; some have completed and some are
still going. I'll give a full report in a few hours. Meanwhile, on
every machine which has gotten this far, I'm seeing a failure on sage/
parallel/decorate.py, perhaps related to #9501? This happens during
testing when I run "make ptestlong", and it is repeatable from the
command line afterwards. For example, I see this on sage.math. My
build is in /scratch/palmieri/sage-4.5.2.alpha1/ in case anyone wants
to see if they can replicate it.



sage -t -long devel/sage/sage/parallel/decorate.py


------------------------------------------------------------
Unhandled SIGSEGV: A segmentation fault occurred in Sage.
This probably occurred because a *compiled* component
of Sage has a bug in it (typically accessing invalid memory)
or is not properly wrapped with _sig_on, _sig_off.
You might want to run Sage under gdb with 'sage -gdb' to debug this.
Sage will now terminate (sorry).

A file conf.py is actually part of #8465. I may try to work on that
ticket soon to repair this problem. Or is Minh around? He's the
right person, but I don't know if he's active these days.

I think that's a real bug that pops up when testing on a slow/nfs
filesystem. Martin Albrecht saw it once when refereeing the patch.
The patch should be bounced until I find a way to correctly deal with
this problem.

I've rerun the test 20 times with a timeout that always "hits"; at least
this doesn't leave any files (nor orphans) around. I'll try later with
DOT_SAGE pointing to some NFS-mounted filesystem...


Btw, we have uses of $DOT_SAGE/tmp, $DOT_SAGE/tmp/tmp and $DOT_SAGE/temp
(perhaps even others, too).

More information: I saw this failure on all of the skynet machines
that have gotten to that test so far, building in my home directory
there. Is that nfs? I also saw it on sage.math, building in /
scratch. After a failure on sage.math, I deleted my whole .sage
directory and got the failure again (running just the one test from
the command line). Then I did

export DOT_SAGE=/scratch/palmieri/.sage

and ran the test several more times. The first time, it ran for more
than three minutes before I hit ctrl-c. The second time it passed.
The third time I ran "verbose" and it claimed to pass, although toward
the end it says

Is this a serious bug in the doctesting structure? How can a
segmentation fault not lead to a doctest failure?

Looking at the code, I guess this is supposed to happen, and the
segmentation fault is supposed to be caught by the @fork'ed process.
So it's okay, right?

Yes. The referee specifically wanted an example of a segfault.
@fork is a cool-arse new decorator we wrote that lets you do stuff
like:

@fork
def crazy_function(...):
crazy stuff that segfaults, leaks memory, etc.

z = crazy_function(...)

and happily go along without any serious trouble.

The following tests failed:


sage -t "devel/sage/doc/en/tutorial/latex.rst"
sage -t "devel/sage/sage/symbolic/random_tests.py"
Total time for all tests: 6966.2 seconds

This is on a power mac running 10.6.4.

That one is most probably fixed at #9607 (already positive review).

Here's what I have so far: I've built successfully and only seen
previously reported failures (decorate.py, lcalc_Lfunction.pyx, and
random_tests.py on OS X) on the following machines:

- sage.math
- t2 (I started this build late and doctesting is still going)
- a Mac OS X box
- skynet machines cleo, eno, flavius, iras, lena, menas, sextus,
taurus.

skynet machine cicero is still doctesting.

skynet machine mark (sparc solaris) is still building: it's been more
than 8 hours now. We'll have a race: see if you can release rc1
before mark finishes building and doctesting alpha1. On the bright
side, on this solaris machine with the new gcc compiler built to use
the sun linker, it's gotten farther in the build than I've ever seen.

skynet machine fulvia (solaris on x86): the build failed. I think gcc
is misconfigured.

In case you're keeping score, I saw the lcalc_Lfunction failure on
cicero (x86-Linux-pentium4-fc), cleo (ia64-Linux-rhel), and iras (ia64-
Linux-suse).

On iras I also saw the non-timeout failure described at
http://trac.sagemath.org/sage_trac/ticket/9584: this failure was not
fixed by this ticket, but it also only occurs sporadically.

The ticket for those lcalc doctest failures is #9615. It's a blocker for
4.5.2.

This is now #9616. William, you mentioned that we should just yank the
patch from #9501; is that what you would like for 4.5.2?

As a note to anyone who would like to do that, you can use

hg backout --merge 21d255f024a0

to create a changeset that represents the inverse of the patch at #9501.

That's good news, though I think later you said on a ticket it failed at cvxopt.

It should be possible to build on mark. I've built Sage on a range of SPARCs

* Netra T1
* Blade 1000
* Blade 2000
* T5240

I'm sure we can add Blade 2500 to that list!

Was this a 32-bit or 64-bit build?

I've managed to build Sage on OpenSolaris on x86 hardware as a 64-bit binary,
but it crashes at startup. But it needs a few patches - not all of which I have
put on tickets. I hit problems earlier in the build process when I first tried a
32-bit build, and decided it was less hassle and more worthwhile to just
concentrate on a 64-bit build. So I have not tried 32-bit much on x86

This one is fixed at #9607.
http://trac.sagemath.org/sage_trac/ticket/9607


> sage -t -long "devel/sage/sage/interfaces/ecm.py" # Time out

You can increase the timeouts (in seconds) by e.g.

$ export SAGE_TIMEOUT=900 # 15 minutes, for testing without "-long"

$ export SAGE_TIMEOUT_LONG=3600 # 1 hour, for doctesting with "-long"

(The timeouts are wall/real time allowed for each *file* being tested,
not CPU/user time.)


> sage -t -long "devel/sage/sage/symbolic/random_tests.py"

This is most probably #9582, which has not been fixed yet.
http://trac.sagemath.org/sage_trac/ticket/9582


> Total time for all tests: 17431.1 seconds

Wow! ;-)
