Sorry for answering that late.

The solution is quite old:

At the end is the solution.


As I removed brlcad and did the mkinitcpio again all was running fine afterwards.

@Baumi: Thanks for reporting this issue. My system does not reproduce this situation; would you be able to provide further information on how you identified this?

Baumi commented on 2017-08-02 12:29

brlcad is quite dangerous.
If you installed it and do a update inlcluding "mkinitcpio -p linux" your system will be broken.
The reason is, that some modules from gzip are not compatible between brlcad and your running system. And mknitcpio accidentally takes the wrong one to create an image.
Only repair method: uninstall brlcad, do an manual "mkinitcpio -p linux" and reboot. At least on my box it worked.

@ejno, no I hadn't. If it's documented somewhere I missed it, sorry

@Lacrymology: Hi, did you re-login or source /etc/profile.d/brlcad.sh ?

I can't see any binaries installed in a common path location.

@pegasusearl: The primary editing interface is MGED (https://brlcad.org/wiki/MGED), which can be started by running "mged" from the command line. The successor (alpha release) editing interface is Archer, which can be run as "archer".

excuse me, how to run brlcad?

@thebunnyrules: Okay, thanks for the update. Let me know if you still encounter any problems with building BRL-CAD or the package. Regarding noexec, it's a mount option that disables direct execution of files that have the execute bit set. Some people mount /tmp or /home noexec, and some non-UNIX filesystems exhibit similar behavior by default.

Well, it seems like I messed up my development environment by mixing and matching header files from other distros. I'll know better than that next time ;)

I set myself up a couple of virtual machines: one Ubuntu to compile the source codes that compile better on Debian based systems. And I made myself an Arch vm while I was at it to see how the BRL-Cad compiles on a fresh system. brl-cad aur compiled without any problems inside my VirtualBox. I'm just going to restore my system to a more stable point via one of my backups.
