Cheers @donpicoro, I can confirm that this now successfully builds, utilising all 8 of my cores.

Thanks for the swift response and fix.

Hi, parnmatt

I can't remember why I used the "-j1". I had troubles at some point and I can remember where/when was it. So now it's removed.

The compilation of the documentations seems like it is a no go. I found this
which seems like the proper explanation for it.

Cheers and let me know if you have any more comments.

…Also, is there any particular reason the PKGBUILD has a hard coded -j1 for making, rather than letting our makepkg.conf take care of it?
Does CLHEP have to be compiled on a single core?

I'm getting a build error.

Seems to be an issue converting the documentation, dvi --> ps --> pdf

Something seems to be undefined in the file. Output below, any thoughts?

(surprised it's not just using pdflatex directly [or to use latexmk -pdf which is included and compiles the needed amount of times].)

CLHEP was released a couple of days ago. :)

Thanks for maintaining! :)

donpicoro commented on 2014-05-08 17:38

updated. Thanks !! =D

lonaowna commented on 2014-05-08 12:52

version is available

donpicoro commented on 2012-03-04 18:00

the documentation is now in
instead of

donpicoro commented on 2012-02-27 21:51

in this release now it builds also the documentation and regarding the two previously (fixed) reported bugs:
- binaries in /usr/bin DO NOW have the correct permissions .... :D
- the symlinks for the libraries in /usr/lib are not created .. :(

it was Bye bye to the first one :D
but the second one is still there... so partly the quick fix provided by Bastian is there.

donpicoro commented on 2012-02-03 00:28

As pointed by Bastian Beischer the package presented the following problems when building it using cmake.

- binaries in /usr/bin do not have the correct permissions
- the symlinks for the libraries in /usr/lib are not created.

Thanks Bastian for also provide the proper quick fix.

donpicoro commented on 2012-02-01 20:26

It was flagged as outdated and it was orphan, so I decided to give it a go. Now I maintain it and is looking good here ;)

Cheers and happy usage.

Thanks! Checked 64bit version and things seem to work fine from what I can see :)

Please update source version, as my geant4 package depends on version (as of tomorrow). Would be nice if the geant4 package could depend on this clhep package instead of providing it.
