Subject: Math::Pari Won't Install Because It Can't Find the GP/PARI on megrez.math.u-bordeaux.fr
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 1.2k
Math::Pari won't install at all, because the required GP/PARI won't download from the u-bordeaux site. (Transcript follows.) I run debian, and I installed the debian gp-pari packages, but apparently even that isn't good enough. Thanks for any help you can provide. - ---------- cut here ---------- 8< ----------------------------------- [ERROR] [Fri Aug 15 16:58:24 2008] Could not run '/usr/bin/perl Makefile.PL': Did not find GP/PARI build directory aroun d. Do you want to me to fetch GP/PARI automatically? (If you do not, you will need to fetch it manually, and/or direct me to the directory with GP/PARI source via the command-line option paridir=/dir) Make sure you have a large scrollback buffer to see the messages, or `tee' the STDOUT/STDERR to a file.

This happened in August a few years ago too (site maintainance?). Just google for pari-2.1.7 - there is a lot of mirrors reported... Hope this helps, Ilya
