I’ll be adding the GNU Scientific Library (GSL) as a new dependency
on the trunk. GSL is a huge numerical library that’s been under
active development for more than 10 years:
Fedora, Debian and Ubuntu all package it.
Under Fedora the relevant packages are: gsl-devel gsl pygsl:
$ sudo yum install gsl-devel gsl pygsl
I’m not exactly sure of the package names under Debian or Ubuntu.
Could someone who knows please let us know and update the Debian and
Ubuntu build pages on the wiki? I’ll update the Fedora page.
gsl-1.11 is the latest, but it looks like gsl-1.10 is what’s widely
distributed. 1.10 should be fine.
