Thanks for the quick update!

Upstream responded with "Due to web portal issues the latest checksums are not updated." -- but what they really should have done is bump the version number...

Updated with the new sha256sum.

If you have an old "aocl-linux-gcc-2.1.tar.gz" archive laying around, please re-download!

daren commented on 2020-02-14 10:08

Weird, they uploaded a different archive under the same name.

The original one with the "e473..." sha256sum has timestamps from 15th of January.

A new downloaded one with the checksum you mention has timestamps from 23th of January... well.

The amd-libm seems to be fixed and split into amdlibm.h and amdlibm_vec.h as well... will update the PKGBUILD.

FTR, the distfile as downloaded with Firefox (repeatedly) gives me

% sha256sum aocl-linux-gcc-2.1.tar.gz
8ea9ec16051893e480f7ba09babeaa833897586aa4d0c2c53b22132b5884150c aocl-linux-gcc-2.1.tar.gz
%

-- differing from the checksum on upstream's web page and in PKGBUILD.

I have notified toolchainsupport@amd.com.

Actually, env-modules should put a (t)csh init file in /etc/profile.d, see <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Environment_Modules_(software)#tcsh,_csh_automatic_modules_initialization>

tcsh here, and since I use my own /etc/csh.* config I had to source /etc/modules/init/tcsh (which of course has ${MODULESHOME} in it - catch 22).

I guess it would be helpful to default to /etc/modules, unless ${MODULESHOME} is set.

daren commented on 2020-01-07 14:08

Hmm, it seems that your shell didn't have ${MODULESHOME} set.

Maybe you need to restart the shell after the installation of env-modules and see if the environment variable is set? I think it should be integrated into bash startup scripts, other shells might need manual env-modules sourcing in the ~/.<shell>rc file.

I should check for if this is set in the PKGBUILD, else it kinda malfunctions and indeed will try to install in /modules.

hfath commented on 2020-01-07 14:01

Ah, okay, I see it now. I guess AUR expects you to look out for such things. ;)

The package installs its environment module files under /modules -- is that the canonical location on Arch? The 'env-modules' package is configured for /etc/modules.

And which package would install the 'module' command mentioned in aocl.install - or did you mean what 'env-modules' installs as 'add.modules'?

Manual download of '${pkgname}-${os}-${pkgver}.tar.gz' required from upstream

url="https://developer.amd.com/amd-aocl/"

Had to do it this way because the real download of the tarball is somewhat hidden behind some web stuff that I don't understand.

hfath commented on 2020-01-07 11:29

Quite. The package might announce where to get it from, though...
