#53125 closed enhancement (fixed)

Clarify the difference between eigen3 and eigen3-devel

Reported by: ksze (Kal Sze) Owned by: eborisch (Eric A. Borisch)
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 2.3.5
Keywords: Cc:
Port: eigen3

Description

eigen3-devel is a sub-port of eigen3, and the two ports conflict each other. However, their descriptions are exactly the same.

What's the difference between the two?

I would presume eigen3-devel is a development version, but does that mean it would be built without optimizations or with debug symbols? The description does not say.

Please clarify in the port description.

That's correct.

but does that mean it would be built without optimizations or with debug symbols?

No difference in how the stable and development versions are built.

The description does not say.

Please clarify in the port description.

You could make the same complaint about virtually every other -devel port.

The -devel version tracks pre-release (-rcN, -beta, ...) versions of eigen3 when they are available. Currently there is no pre-release version, so they both point to the same thing.
