It seems that unzip, m4, flex and bison are missing as dependencies.

configure: to install missing package under debian or ubuntu, try configure: sudo apt-get install unzip configure: error: Sorry missing unzip,m4,bison,flex,patch command ! ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in prepare(). Aborting... Error making: freefem

Patches are welcome.

@greyltc yes, the build process download dependencies (like mumps, etc). Not sure it's a good idea to do it appart

greyltc commented on 2019-06-13 09:15

Am I right in that the build process downloads something besides the URLs in the source array? Can we avoid that somehow?

gdolle commented on 2019-05-20 12:08

@haawda ok I'll check from my side

haawda commented on 2019-05-20 09:22

Version 4.1 does not compile for me, feel free to use freefem++-git.

greyltc commented on 2019-03-13 11:34

@haawda, Please change the hdf5-openmpi dependency to hdf5. Thanks!

Also probably perl needs to at least be in the makedepends since the first line in your prepare() function is a perl one.

Hi @haawda, it seems openmpi is not taken into account currently in the configure step. This should work:


It might be nice also to add optional dependency (optdepends=) to petsc package and mmg3d, i.e. add to the configure step

Great, implemented!

@eolianoe @haawda The mpif.h error may due to a bad mumps config (for arch). For parallel mumps version (See* files INCPAR variable). Freefem++ set a FFMPIINCLUDE variable (empty by default) and commented in download/

If you add

find ./download -name -exec sed -i 's+#\(FFMPIINCLUDE\s*=\).*+\1/usr/include+' {} \;

just before the "getall" in the prepare step, it should solve the problem.
