Description Rich Mattes 2012-05-25 23:21:31 UTC
Description of problem:
tbb doesn't come with a pkgconfig file from upstream.  However, debian (and therefore ubuntu) are shipping tbb.pc, which some downstream projects have started depending on.  I am requesting that fedora follow suit, and work with upstream to provide the .pc file in the source distribution.

For reference, the tbb.pc from ubuntu (downloaded at looks like:


Name: Threading Building Blocks
Description: Intel's parallelism library for C++
Version: 3.0+r018
Libs: -L${libdir} -ltbb
Cflags: -I${includedir}

Comment 1 Petr Machata 2012-06-04 19:53:57 UTC
Agreed that this might be useful to do.  I'll contact Intel and see if they would be willing to add the .pc file to their distribution.  But I don't think it would be undue burden to carry that file downsteam in the mean time.

Comment 2 Petr Machata 2012-06-07 20:00:12 UTC
I'm spinning an update in rawhide that rebases to 4.0 update 4, and also provides the .pc files.  I would prefer naming the .pc file libtbb.pc, as there are two other libraries libtbbmalloc and libtbbmalloc_proxy, but for sake of compatibility and consistency, I dropped the "lib" prefix.  Would you please be so kind as to review whether it seems correct?

Comment 3 Rich Mattes 2012-06-10 18:32:30 UTC
I just gave the 4.0.4 packages from rawhide a try.  The pkgconfig files you've included look good, and work when tested with the projects I mentioned that look for them.  Thanks for taking care of this.
