    Default ngspice from unstable electronics repository missing executable files

    Hello,

    Hopefully someone that uses ngspice can help out on this one. I
    installed the ngspice application from the electronics repository but
    most of the binaries needed to run the program are missing.

    The only executable I found is /bin/cmmp

    which is not enough to run the program. In fact, I do not have a clue
    what cmmp is.

    Compiling from source gives me the following executable files

    /usr/local/bin/ngmakeidx
    /usr/local/bin/ngmultidec
    /usr/local/bin/ngnutmeg
    /usr/local/bin/ngproc2mod
    /usr/local/bin/ngsconvert
    /usr/local/bin/ngspice

    I know it is from an unstable repository
    (https://software.opensuse.org/package/ngspice but it is a nice program
    to tinker with electronic circuits without having to actually build them.

    Thanks in advance,

    Eric

    Are you running TW or LEAP 42.2, or some other OS?

    I am running LEAP 42.2. It is a fresh install with all current updates.

    Hi
    Not sure why it was built with the ngshared option (no binaries)....
    Code:
    --with-ngshared
    This option let you compile ngspice as a shared
    library or dll, allowing an application controlling
    ngspice. This option excludes using --with-x or
    --with-wingui. Useful additional options are
    --enable-xspice --enable-cider --enable-openmp.
    No graphics inetrface is provided, this has to be
    handled by the controlling application.
    Branching, cleaning up and submitting soon....

    Thank you very much,

    I look forward to the update.

    I am still cleaning up after compiling from source. I managed to bring
    in the entire texlive suite with every language under the sun when I
    downloaded the dependencies using Yast. I had this happen a couple of
    years ago and it was not fun updating laptop when I am on the road with
    very slow Internet access. Yast is taking its time removing them.

    regards

    Eric

    Hi
    So have reverted the build (and cleaned things up a bit);
    https://build.opensuse.org/package/s...ronics/ngspice

    I've enabled publishing for Leap 42.2, so once built, follow the link
    on the right hand side to the download repo and test, if all OK (and
    confirm), might look at creating an additional engine build, or just
    push the changes...
