16:36 chm hi PDL-ers
16:39 chm jberger : Have you taken a look at the Alien::FFTW3 test reports?
16:40 chm There seem to be a number of common problems that might be readily fixable...
16:40 chm Here's one: Downloading File: fftw-3.3.3.tar.gz ... Timeout at /home/c/perl5/perlbrew/perls​/18.1i/lib/5.18.1/Net/FTP.pm line 491.
16:41 chm Here's another (on linux): Can't exec "pkg-config": No such file or directory at Build.PL line 30.
16:41 chm Here is on FreeBSD: Couldn't figure out a reasonable place to stick the pkg-config files for fftw.
16:42 jberger Hmmmm
16:43 chm I don't know if it is Alien::FFTW3 specific but they smell like something just a tiny bit off (maybe simple to fix)
16:44 chm One thought is that Alien::Base be a lot more verbose in its output so we could diagnose things better.
16:44 jberger Possibly
16:45 jberger I thought I had made pkg config optional
16:45 jberger :-\
16:45 chm ouch!  :-)
16:47 jberger Anyway my big problem is that work used to be my big driver of both pdl and alien work
16:47 jberger Now new job and I use neither
16:47 jberger :-(
16:47 chm Well, my work now needs 64bit support....
16:47 chm Hence the push...
16:47 jberger Right, scratch the itch you have
16:48 chm The push for the Alien stuff is the goal of factoring out the various dependency based modules from the PDL core for PDL3 work
16:48 jberger I want to stay in the loop and help, but major work on these things is not likely to happen for me for the foreseeable future
16:49 jberger That push is important imo
16:49 chm I understand.  Is the plan I responded to your email ok with you?
16:56 jberger Sure
16:57 chm Well, I have a snow day today and need to get back to fixing the 64bit index support problem.
16:57 chm Got a bit distracted fixing the FFTW3 stuff but I think having a working, state-of-the-art FFT is important for a math tool...
16:58 jberger Maybe I will make a github organization for it
16:58 jberger Enjoy
16:58 jberger And yes fft is very important
16:58 chm I'll keep an eye on the logs and maybe catch up later.  Thanks.  o/
