Hi everybody, i have troubles using nest.

After installation I can import nest in python however the module seems to be pretty empty, i.e.

nest.ResetKernel()

gives

AttributeError: module 'nest' has no attribute 'ResetKernel'

and

help(nest)

only gives

Help on package nest:

NAME nest

PACKAGE CONTENTS pynestkernel

FILE (built-in)

When using nest without python from Terminal I get an [INFO] message about with a path pointing in the source where I created the package ~/Downloads/nest/src/nest-simulator-2.20.0/nestkernel/rng_manager.cpp

Also at the end of compiling I received the warning

WARNING: Package contains reference to $srcdir

also when looking in my /usr/lib/python3.8/site-packages/nest the only thing there is pynestkernel.so. Shouldn't there be more?

Can somebody help me with this? I couldn't find anything on this. Also playing around a bit with the PKGBUILD while looking into the Install guide https://github.com/nest/nest-simulator/blob/master/INSTALL didn't help me yet.

Thanks alot!

Hi,

I got this error, when importing nest:

File "/usr/lib/python3.5/site-packages/nest/__init__.py", line 53, in <module>
import lib.hl_api_helper as hl_api
ImportError: No module named 'lib'

Maybe there're some dependencies missing? I don't know, where lib.hl_api_helper should come from.

Edit: I was wrong. For some reason I had to add /usr/lib/python3.5/site-packages/nest manually to the sys.path

Thanks for the package,

Leo

Hi, cool package.

Anyway, the hyperlink for the upstream URL points to: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/nest/www.nest-simulator.org/www.nest-simulator.org/www.nest-simulator.org/.

You probably want it to point to: www.nest-simulator.org/

Also, the software seems to build and install fine on my i686 laptop.
