Hi all,

I am trying to get into the 2.9.x build and testing cycle, but I am unsure
what additional packages I need for a fully functional compile (e.g.
including sparse etc...). Can someone point me to a list of the required
and optional packages including where to get these packages and what versions?


In addition to the 2.1.x dependencies you need GLPK and UFSPARSE. You might also like to install METIS prior to UFSPARSE to get a faster sparse cholesky factorization, though there are licensing issues with that... I can send source RPMs of UFSPARSE and METIS, though as they are lareg I prefer to do that offline. Tell me if you want them.
