adding the aliases to .bashrc is a very unreliable method it only really works for the user that built the package and only if he uses bash, it also clutters the .bashrc on every build, I'm sure I'm not the only one that doesn't appreciate a PBKGBUILD meddling with my home folder so I suggest instead placing the aliases in a /etc/profile.d/ script, here my suggested patch to the PKGBUILD:

Upcoming release here

Good time to testing ^_^

Will be nice use this strategy for faster builds.

Edited 2022-07-10:

Compilation process looks fine, looking in the below paths and {ldd -v, objdump -p, realdef d}ing looks fine too.


namcap noticed that that we have some empty directories.

/opt/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-v2206/ThirdParty is gone. When source /opt/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-v2206/etc/bashrc only MPI_ARCH_PATH is set right, but CGAL_ARCH_PATH, FFTW_ARCH_PATH, ADIOS2_ARCH_PATH, SCOTCH_ARCH_PATH and BOOST_ARCH_PATH are not set right since the directory is empty. I will take look how is done in other distributions.

Only leaving an informative message if someone else is facing this issue. No work around yet.

Edited 2022-06-03:

I run again some tutorials successfully after apply this 0001-GCC-12-compatibility.patch for gcc 12.1.0 or later.

It makes work our tutorials cases. Based in this upstream patch, solves this issue. Yay!

@dl6tud could you apply carlosal's patch to the PKGBUILD? at least the sed line as it does indeed fix the build

It was true, now with this 0001-C-14-for-CGAL-5-compatibility-KaHIP-support.patch is compiling fine as before and working with CGAL 5 or later, plus this add support to kahip as we can see that creates the following shared object


in the full log, yay.

Thanks for feedback, actually I compiled sucessfully openfoam-com before cgal-4.14.3 upgrade at 15th March, now with cgal-5.4-1, the compiler complains. Possible related with this issue

Also I see that


is not pointing to adios2 from system when install by stock, like yes happen right for CGAL_ARCH_PATH, FFTW_ARCH_PATH, MPI_ARCH_PATH, SCOTCH_ARCH_PATH, and BOOST_ARCH_PATH.

Your errors seem to be related to CGAL. The other errors such as

type specifier only available with ‘-std=c++14’ or ‘-std=gnu++14’

indicate that your CGAL works only with a compiler of the 2014 c++ standard. Maybe you have an old cgal version?
