Thanks @MartinDiehl, I'm glad we have python bindings and the scotch package will be good maintained soon. Both are the building blocks of many packages. Here is the log file for petsc 3.15.4-5, no problem installation.

@lahwaacz: thanks, it is fixed now.

The version 3.15.4-3 does not build for me (in a clean chroot with aurutils):

Now to install the libraries do:
sudo make PETSC_DIR=/build/petsc/src/petsc-3.15.4 PETSC_ARCH=arch-linux-c-opt install

@carlosal1015: I missed some dependencies. Please let me know if the current version still does not work.

can you check the checksums ?

Validating source files with sha256sums...

@xantares: This is the first time that the extensive test suite (including popups) is exectuted. I'm not sure if that is the intended beavior, I guess not.

xantares commented on 2020-04-04 09:28

could "make test" be run with xvfb-run to avoid popups ?

hypre's latest update moved all include files in /usr/include/hypre, should be updated.

When building this with aurutils the build fails with:

==> Starting prepare()...
rm: cannot remove '/logdest/logpipe.K4ZsD575': No such file or directory
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in prepare().

This seems to be an issue somewhere in the build toolchain (see but since I never had the issue with any other package I suggest just working around it by changing:

  while IFS= read file; do
    sed -i "s#$MATCH#\\1python2#" "$file"
  done < <( find ${srcdir} -name "*" -type f -exec grep -le "$MATCH" \{\} + )


  find ${srcdir} -name "*" -type f -exec grep -le "$MATCH" \{\} + | \
    while IFS= read file; do
      sed -i "s#$MATCH#\\1python2#" "$file"

(that works for me)

I'm disowning this package because I don't have the time to handle all dependency detection and their supported versions. I've created a petsc-git pacakge which downloads and installs all supported dependencies with eventual patches.
