@hzhangxyz I've removed the atompaw dependency.

hzhangxyz commented on 2018-08-18 10:10

does it really need atompaw? it seems not?

you didn't add something like --with-atompaw-bins ?

I'm trying to update to version 8.8.2 but the build fails with an "assignment to contiguous pointer from non-contiguous target" error. I get the same error with 8.8.1. Does anyone have any suggestions? I have opened a thread on the abinit forum to try to resolve this:

Here's the PKGBUILD that produces the error:

# Contributor: Ed Sandberg <>
# Maintainer: Xyne

pkgdesc="Full-featured atomic-scale first-principles simulation software."
arch=('i686' 'x86_64')
depends=('lapack' 'blas' 'openmpi' 'atompaw')
makedepends=('gcc-fortran' 'perl')

build() {
  cd -- "$srcdir/$pkgname-$pkgver"
  ./configure --prefix=/usr #--disable-all-plugins
  make #-j $(($(nproc) + 1))

package() {
  cd -- "$srcdir/$pkgname-$pkgver"
  make DESTDIR="$pkgdir" install

Switching to HTTPS allowed me to access the site. I find it strange that I wasn't redirected automatically. Anyway, the package has been updated.

Thanks for the great work. Perhaps switching from http to https will fix your access problem to

Upstream's website is timing out for me right now. I will update at soon as I can access it again.

The package compiles with the latest upstream release.

I am unable to compile the current package and cannot spend any more time on it right now. I have not found anything on the upstream forum that would help either. It seems to be a simple linker error but I am not sure what it is expecting.

If someone finds a solution, please let me know. I will orphan the package if someone with more time or better understanding of the package wishes to maintain it, otherwise I will try to fix this when I have more time.

Doesn't compile here :(
also tried to download new version and compile by hand, but same error:

Disowned, adopted and updated. The package had been out-of-date for nearly 2 years and the maintainer has not been active for nearly 2.5.

The current package uses the default upstream configuration options, which include about 164 MB of test files. I am not familiar with the software so I do not yet know if these files are useful. They may be moved to a separate package in the future.
