But whatever I try, I cannot get sage to load the library. Here is what I tried:
1) FIRST ATTEMPT
export SAGE_PATH="$SAGE_PATH:/opt/mylib/bindings"
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH="$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/opt/mylib/lib::/opt/mylib/dependencies"
However, when I try to import from a jupyter notebook:
import mylib.mymodule.mysubmodule
I get the error:
ImportError: /usr/lib/libblas.so.3: undefined symbol: sgemv_thread_n
I only could find one reference (ticket 22006 on trac.sagemath.org - sorry, cannot post links yet) to a similar problem, however without resolution (the suggested workaround, namely to install `libopenblas-dev` did not work for me). Note that `mylib` does not depend in any way on BLAS.
2) SECOND ATTEMPT
export SAGE_PATH="$SAGE_PATH:/opt/mylib/bindings"
echo -e "/opt/mylib/lib\n/opt/mylib/dependencies" > /etc/ld.so.conf/mylib.conf
sudo ldconfig
But the library cannot be found this way:
ImportError: libmylib.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
3) THIRD ATTEMPT
export SAGE_PATH="$SAGE_PATH:/opt/mylib/bindings"
sudo ln -s /opt/mylib/lib/libmylib.so.1 /usr/lib/sagemath/local/lib/libmylib.so.1
sudo ln -s /opt/mylib/lib/libmylib.so.1 /usr/local/lib/libmylib.so.1
This results in the same import error as in SECOND ATTEMPT.
4) FOURTH ATTEMPT
export SAGE_PATH="$SAGE_PATH:/opt/mylib/bindings"
sudo ln -s /opt/mylib/lib/libmylib.so.1 /lib/libmylib.so.1
Now the library finally got loaded, but it cannot find its dependencies.
ImportError: libdependency1.so.1.2.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
THE QUESTION
What is the proper way to make sage resolve a custom library and its dependencies? I understand that sage tries to isolate itself as much as possible from the system, and I have also read that there is some "magic" going on to adjust environment variables: this seems to cause the problem (1).
ADDITIONAL INFO
Working on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS with sage installed from ppa as follows:
apt-add-repository -y ppa:aims/sagemath
apt-get update
apt install sagemath-upstream-binary
Note that everything works as expected when using the library from the system python console.matpenMon, 18 Sep 2017 03:15:57 -0500https://ask.sagemath.org/question/38842/
