Re: [Pkg-octave-devel] Dynare: git, matlab, testsuite

Rafael Laboissiere <rafael@debian.org> a écrit :

My preference is to migrate to Git, but this is a personal wish.  If it is
too complicated for you, we can along with SVN.  I will create an
experimental Git repository, converted from SVN.  Later, we can decide which
one to use.

I'll use the Git repository once you've created it. Learning Git is a good investment anyways.

The goal is therefore to provide compiled MEX files for Matlab. We
obviously can't ship the binaries with Debian.
So my idea is to create a dynare-matlab package (depending on the main
dynare package), which
* install the MEX sources in /usr/src/dynare
* ask the user the location of Matlab on his drive, via debconf
* compile and install the MEX files in the postinst script

Do the user need the whole Matlab installation for this step?

My understanding is that the most basic installation of Matlab, without any toolbox, is able to compile MEX files. It relies on gcc.
