linux_dream, you can simply remove the line with "-DDOLFIN_ENABLE_HDF5=FALSE" (or set it to true). Just a warning: I've had problems with HDF5 and MPI simultaneously enabled in dolfin before.

When I try to read a file.xdmf in Python, I get the error message: Error: Unable to get dataset. Reason: DOLFIN has not been configured with HDF5.

as described!topic/fenics-support/-ApSpB4-UuY. Would someone happen to know how I can compile dolfin-git with HDF5 support? I already have python-h5py-openmpi, python-lxml, etc.

jvellojin, you should probably report this to PETSC, not dolfin. In any case, I believe you have to use fftw-mpi, not fftw.

jvellojin commented on 2019-02-10 19:47

When trying to install from pamac gives the following error when building PETSC:

Unable to find fftw in default locations! Perhaps you can specify with --with-fftw-dir=<directory> If you do not want fftw, then give --with-fftw=0 You might also consider using --download-fftw instead.

Setting --with-fftw=0 is followed by the error: CMake Error at /usr/share/cmake-3.13/Modules/FindPackageHandleStandartArgs.cmake:137 (message): PETSc could not be found. Be sure to set PETSC DIR. (missing: PETSC FOUND)

r.miguez: You may also be intersted in the Python interface which can be found in the package python-dolfin-git.

heitzmann: Thanks for the clarification! I am starting using it and thought it had something on top of executable scripts such as "dolfin-convert".

r.miguez: dolfin is a C++ library, it does not have an executable, as far as I know.

Hi folks, for some reason I cant execute dolfin after I run the makepkg and build it. I tried to run "source /usr/share/dolfin/dolfin.conf" but nothing happens, I get command not found when I run "dolfin --version". Any clue?

I believe this line can be removed now:

Thanks, tobin, I'll update the PKGBUILD accordingly.
