Static version of libitpp is missing

Asked by yuricbs on 2008-06-10

The static version of the itpp library (libitpp.a) is missing from the libitpp Ubuntu packages. I see that all the other math libraries have both shared (.so) and static versions (.a), only that of itpp is missing. Would it be possible to include it? That would be very useful for itpp programmers that need to run their executables in machines that do not have the shared libraries.

Thanks in advance.

Hi yuricbs,

Please refer this link

If you are running Ubuntu, it is strongly suggested to use a package manager like aptitude or synaptic to download and install packages, instead of doing so manually via this website.

You should be able to use any of the listed mirrors by adding a line to your /etc/apt/sources.list like this:

deb gutsy main universe

Replacing with the mirror in question.

Thanks for the answer, but the link you indicated, with the libitpp-dev package, still does not contain the static library libitpp.a, so the problem is still unsolved.

What I think that can be done to solve it:

*** The team responsible for the libitpp-dev package should recompile the itpp library with the "static" option and include the "libitpp.a" file within the ubuntu packages of both hardy and gutsy versions.
