Try replacing harminv with harminv-git.

Hi, i have problems compiling this:

Any idea what is wrong?

lmello, try rebuilding and installing libctl, adding CFLAGS='fPIC' option to the configure step in build() in the PKGBUILD

./ ./configure --prefix=/usr LIBS="-lm" CFLAGS='-fPIC' make

this fixed this error for me.

Try with the newest PKGBUILD.

There seems to be a compatibility issue between the latest guile and meep:

Downgrading guile to 2.11 does solve the issue for the time being.

It is working for me with hdf5-cpp-fortran and running meep-mpi.
Also, I usually make sure meep is re-compiled after any changes in its dependencies.

This issue seems to be related to the parallel version of hdf5:

Is this package still working correctly for anyone? I successfully compiled this with all the most up-to-date dependencies without changing any flags but then received this error when running (meep bend-flux.ctl)

heitzmann, thanks for the reply. Indeed, adding "--enable-shared" to CXXFLAGS while building mpb fixes the problem. I will update the mpb PKGBUILD shortly.

heitzmann commented on 2016-01-18 20:30

McNoggins, it seems the problem might be because meep is compiling with support for mpb on your machine (I suspect you have mpb installed).
In that case, try recompiling mpb with the -fPIC option as indicated in the error report.
Does that work?
