Subject: Re: [Pkg-electronics-devel] Bug#499711: geda-gnetlist is linked
against libguile1.8 which has a bug
http://www.geda.seul.org/wiki/geda:faq-gnetlist it causes gnelist to fail
with stack overflow at least then generating a netlist from a *.scm file.
Linking against libguile1.6 instead may solve the problem. Note this may
also affect other geda packages.
I must have mixed things up but i did read the text below on the webpage http://www.geda.seul.org/wiki/geda:faq-gnetlist and recompiled against 1.6.8 and now it works.
"This is a bug in guile-1.8.X. The gEDA developers are working on a fix. Meanwhile, try to backrev your version of guile to 1.6.7, which is known to work flawlessly with gEDA."
