at a recent conference some people told me that they had problems with
applying all the current fixes to GAP 3.4. Therefore I have prepared a 'zoo'
archive that contains complete copies of all the patched files. Just copying
all these files over the old versions will get you up-to-date with all
patches released so far (up to patch 25).
As the archive contains complete files it is unimportant whether any
patches have been applied already.
The archive can be found as /pub/incoming/gapfix25.zoo on our ftp server
To unpack the archive just go to the gap directory (the directory containing
the subdirectories 'lib' and 'grp' and extract the archive using 'zoo' or
(If you are using the 'Guava' coding theory package, you should
go to the 'pkg/guava/' subdirectory afterwards and issue the command:
'make' to recompile the external guava program.)
I will make a similar archive available about every two or three months (or
earlier if sufficiently many patches occured in the meantime). Release of
these patch collections will be announced in the gap-forum.
Hope this is of use,
