For those who are getting this error message:


File "<stdin>", line 4
print "You can't run mpdboot on %s your python version must be >= 2.2, current version is: %s" % ([gethostname()], [version[0:3]])
SyntaxError: invalid syntax


It's happening because this script supposes you are running an environment with Python 2.* version, but actually you are using at least in Manjaro python 3.* as your default version and it causes several issues related with syntax problems.

I found out a way to solve this without the need of change the scripts or change the default symlink /usr/bin/python.
Follow the steps retreated here:

First create a dummy folder:
$ mkdir ~/bin
Then add a symlink python to python2 and the config scripts in it:
$ ln -s /usr/bin/python2 ~/bin/python
$ ln -s /usr/bin/python2-config ~/bin/python-config
Finally put the new folder at the beginning of your PATH variable:
$ export PATH=~/bin:$PATH

without the edit, i couldn't build r-mkl, for example

It was like that when I took over the package. You seem to be right in that it doesn't really add anything. Does it cause any issues?

syne commented on 2016-05-17 13:41

conserning r-mkl could you tell me why the second symlink on line 300 is necessary?
everything works fine with just
ln -s ./${_composer_xe_dir} composerxe
instead of both lines 299 and 300

That seems great, but I haven't reinstalled. This versioning is in line with what gets installed in Windows (e.g. "IntelSWTools/compilers_and_libraries_2016.3.207" with subfolders for ipp, mkl, etc. and no other versions in the paths).

I put each version number of all packages in the package description, so now all packages should build property with makepkg -i.

The version number of each package is retrievable in the Description field by running for e.g.: "pacman -Qi intel-mkl"

The main version of all subpackages remains the same with intel-compiler-base so that makepkg -i works by request in these comments.

Let me know if there are issues.

@fishstamp82, If that solves the install problems (SRCINFO and PKGBUILD), then I won't complain, but I like to be able to see what versions of IPP and MKL are installed.

fishstamp82 commented on 2016-05-07 19:05

What I did was to change it to make it installable with "makepkg -i", but then all the packages are built with the default compiler-base version number, meaning mkl will lose its unique 11.0.3 version numbering, as was the case when all packages had to be installed individually.

I sincerely hope this is what you guys wanted, if not, let me know and I will either revert it to the previous build, or change this one accordingly.

I think there is a problem in the .SRCINFO or in the version number for the intel-mkl package:

The package version is 2016., but .SRCINFO has 2016.

After updating I still get this:

==> Software upgrade (new version) :
aur/intel-ipp 2016. -> 2016.
aur/intel-mkl 2016. -> 2016.
aur/intel-mpi 2016. -> 2016.
aur/intel-tbb_psxe 2016. -> 2016.
