 Oh, don't forget to install 'calc' first:

http://www.isthe.com/chongo/tech/comp/calc/

tar -xjf calc-2.12.4.4.tar.bz2
cd calc-2.12.4.4
make all
sudo make install

or see:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/calc/files/calc/2.12.4.3/

There are src.rpms there, but they don't build on 11.4 and I
haven't taken time to debug. Job left to the interested reader :)

Sounds like a perfect job for a budding contributor.

If anyone is interested it is just:
Build that in your home OBS project.  Test it.  Submit it to a devel
project.  Test it.  Submit it to factory..

It goes into the next release.  It's too late for 12.1, but 12.2 will
be in another 8 months.

Hi
There is a user with it already...
https://build.opensuse.org/project/packages?project=home%3Amichal-m

The specfile looks nicely done. (In general getting the specfile in
good shape is the hardest part of packaging a utility for openSUSE
formal submissions.)

https://build.opensuse.org/package/view_file?file=calc.spec&package=calc&project=home%3Amichal-m&srcmd5=ec9ad07630f88d98e960a1ec300ac0d9

So all the budding contributor has to do is branch that package to
their own OBS home project. Build it against factory (should happen
automatically.) and whatever release they are running. (Likely will
need to use the WebUI to add that repo.)

Enable publishing for the build they want to test (via the WebUI).

It should then show up in the test search at:
http://software.opensuse.org/search?q=calc&baseproject=openSUSE%3AFactory&lang=en&include_home=true&exclude_debug=true

Once you find it, install it and test it.

Assuming it works submit to an appropriate devel project. Once
accepted install from that repo, then submit it on to factory for
inclusion in 12.2 and beyond.
