petsc (3.2.dfsg-6) unstable; urgency=low
* Team upload.
* Fix PETSC_CHECKS m4 macro so that it also detects static petsc library
- petsc.m4: add -lhdf5 and -lstdc++ to PETSC_EXTERNAL_LIBS
- d/rules: add g++ to petsc-compilers
Thanks to Anton Gladky for a first version of the patch. (Closes: #691307)

petsc (3.2.dfsg-5) unstable; urgency=low
* Rebuild with newest version of HDF5, and force >= 1.8.8.

petsc (3.2.dfsg-4) unstable; urgency=low
* Added lam4-dev to Build-Conflicts (closes: #656189).
* Added alpha and lpia to architecture list (closes: #655940).
* Added CHOLMOD support (closes: #642439).
* Test building with HDF5 on all arches.

petsc (3.2.dfsg-3) unstable; urgency=low
* Reinstated s390x arch since an external error prevents it from building (no
s390x support in PVM -> no ScaLAPACK).
* Changed libscotch-dev to libptscotch-dev in libpetsc3.2-dev Build-Depends.
* Added cmake to Build-Conflicts because it causes setting of

petsc (3.2.dfsg-2) unstable; urgency=low
* Fixed MUMPS support to work with PTScotch (thanks: Satish Balay).
* Removed doc link to non-free PDF file.
* Added mpich2 case to debian/rules (closes: #652307).
* Restrict architectures to exclude armel because of an unknown python bug
(closes: #651453), kfreebsd-* because of a FORTRAN test problem, and s390x
because of dependency issues (missing architecture in PVM).
2011-12-30 - "Adam C. Powell, IV" <>
petsc (3.2.dfsg-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream (closes: #652101).
* Removed bin/win32fe/win32fe.exe and win32feutils.dll, docs/developers.pdf,
docs/manual.pdf, src/tops/twopager.pdf and the share and xcode directories
from upstream due to lack of source.
* Forward-ported patches, splitting ld.patch into hypre.patch and
* Changed arch-dependent packages to "any" -- let's test all arches.
* Reinstated patch/unpatch in build-arch, build-indep and clean targets.
* Re-added quilt to Build-Depends, lintian complains otherwise.
* PETSc dropped support for Scotch, need to disable MUMPS as well for now
(but keeping both in dependencies).
* Requires newer SuiteSparse than version 3.4.0 in Debian, kludged it to
compile properly but runtime behavior is unpredictable at best.
* Lintian overrides for false positives on copyright and petsc-dev.
* Using MPI selection from mpi-default-dev.

petsc (3.1.dfsg-11.1) unstable; urgency=low
* Non-maintainer upload.
* Don't mix source format 3.0 (quilt) and manual usage of quilt:
- Drop manual quilt calls from debian/rules;
- Drop superfluous quilt Build-Depends.
Closes: #643488
