Awesome, that worked for me also. I fixed the PKGBUILD and upgraded it to ALPS 2.2.b1-r7195 (ALPS 2.1.1-r6176 still doesn't compile).

I try installing alps 2.2 but those errors happened again, by advise from one of members of alps-user mailing list after cmake complain about those variables, I simply set them to empty string and configure again and it works for me and I finally install alps 2.2 on my system

I think maybe its happen because of wrong boost version.
according to ALPS installation guide, ALPS 2.1.1 does not support Boost >= 1.51.0
but my current boost version is boost 1.55.0-4.
I didnt test it yet with Boost <= 1.51.0. and also alps 2.2.

I get the same error. I don't know how to fix it.

hi every one
I try to install alps, but I get following error from cmake:
CMake Error: The following variables are used in this project, but they are set to NOTFOUND.
Please set them or make sure they are set and tested correctly in the CMake files:

I had to rebuild due to the recent boost update (1.49 -> 1.50)
I also changed 2 things:
- I uncommented the 'make' line (this was commented out by accident)
- I added 'ln -s ../../pyalps usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/' to make python see alps (the alternative is to run with alpspython)

As for the failed tests: all of them not very important, but developers promised to investigate this issue. When I build ALPS last time python-related tests was OK.
As for another package-related questions, I'm not familiar yet with the way how pacman installs/removes packages, so I can't say anything valuable.

I updated the package. Only 6 of 98 tests failed.
I'm also installing into /usr now (instead of /opt/alps). I don't have a strong preference. I only changed it since I haven't written a setup file (to set any needed paths).

After installing, in order to get python2 to 'import pyalps', I had to do
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/pyalps /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/
Is there a way I'm supposed to do this? Or should I just add that into the package (it's currently commented out)?

94% tests passed, 6 tests failed out of 98
The following tests FAILED:
23 - test_deque (Failed)
24 - test_vector (Failed)
95 - python_hlist_test (Failed)
96 - python_mcdata (Failed)
97 - python_pyhdf5 (Failed)
98 - python_mcanalyze (Failed)

Wow, thanks! I'll update the package.

I've asked developers and they made some patches. Now latest version compiles without problems. Most of the tests also passed.
