This package is also hosted on GitHub.
Use env vars to control build process:
  • DISABLE_OPENCL=1 to skip opencl kernel build.
Usage cases:
  • export DISABLE_CUDA=1 before build
  • DISABLE_CUDA=1 ~your-aur-helper~
  • makepkg DISABLE_CUDA=1
  • yay -S blender-2.8-git --mflags "DISABLE_CUDA=1"

I think the current version of this is incompatible with the current version of blender-plugin-luxcorerender, as I get boost argument types mismatch errors when using the plugin.

Also, I can't seem to use this without OpenCL, with CPU option it still tries to use OpenCL and throws an error if I don't have an OpenCL set up.


OK, about the second thing, I didn't know you need to disable OpenCL in luxrays by adding -D LUXRAYS_DISABLE_OPENCL=1 to cmake if you want it to work without OpenCL. I'm guessing the normal OpenCL build uses OpenCL even if you use CPU integrators because the raytracing part in luxrays is then still using OpenCL.

As such, I think you should make opencl-driver a hard dependency, since the package is useless without it. Also, we could add another CPU-only one (I don't have time now, but I can do it next weekend).

And the first thing still holds true, the current version of this package (which gets luxcorerender 2.1 beta 1) is incompatible with current version of blender-plugin-luxcorerender (which gets exporter version 2.1 beta 2). By the way, could you maybe just use the upstream version, like 2.1-beta2 (I think it shouldn't screw up version ordering).

@adsun: fixed.

The optdepends opencl-driver is misspelled "opencl-dirver".

@gdm413229 cmake script for lux is hudge garbage, will need to strip it from a bunch of internal deps and refactor linking routines. Should be working now.

I've got a package installation issue involving conflicting files between the package and the file system on my machine. The error message is located below this text.
