Re: Aspell review (was Re: Pending package status (14 Jul 2003))


Actually, I *can* reproduce the problem with the binary aspell, but if I 
rebuild it myself to debug, the problem goes away..

Interestingly, the way aspell displays the word it wants to change changes 
too.. I'm WAGging that I'm linking to something Gareth wasn't linking to.. 
- possibly ncurses.


Just read Gareth's original mail and did a cygcheck on aspell.exe - that's 
it: I'm linking to ncurses while he isn't. If Gareth agrees, I'd vote to 
link to ncurses and try again: all you need to do is install ncurses and 
rebuild. (WFM).

Elfyn, could you check the linked-to-ncurses versions available for 
download (see below) to see if that fixes your problem?

Gareth, would you mind if aspell were linked to ncurses (I take from your 
original mail that you wouldn't, but you're the maintainer ;)

PS: I haven't fixed the presence of the import & libtool library in the 
    libaspell package, nor have I patched the setup.hint file to reflect 
    the new dependency - I'd like to know Gareth's opinion first - after 
    all, I only maintain the dictionary :)
