This is the same package as abinit. If you want to contribute, I can add you as a co-maintainer on that package.

(edit: merged from abinit-dev and added corvus_albus as co-maintainer)

Compilation fails with mkl_dfti.f90: No such file or directory

Sorry for the delay. It should be fixed now.

Package doesn't build:

THEN a lot of other stuff and finally:

Error: Type mismatch between actual argument at (1) and actual argument at (2) (COMPLEX(8)/REAL(8)).

Can somebody help?

PS: abinit-dev works fine. maybe you could compare the PKGBUILDs to solve...

@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.
