HYPRE detection is currently broken, the correct version should be 2.14.0 and the naming scheme for the so file is libHYPRE-x.y.z.so now. Replacing the corresponding lines 14/15 in test_optdepends.sh with these fixes the problem:

    VERSION_MIN=2.14.0
    VERSION=$(readlink -f '/usr/lib/libHYPRE.so' | sed -r 's/^.*libHYPRE-(.*)\.so/\1/')

Do we really need this step?

# src for tutorials
cp -r ${_build_dir}/src ${pkgdir}/usr/share/doc/$pkgname/

The src folder by itself is around 147M. Should it be enough just cp -r ${_build_dir}/doc ${pkgdir}/usr/share/doc/$pkgname?

I think that would make sense only if we actually installed petsc in the system directories under /usr/local . I'm not sure what the policy is on that...

Should we also copy /opt/petsc/linux-c-opt/lib/pkgconfig/PETSc.pc to /usr/share/pkgconfig? I run pkg-config --cflags PETSc and get Package petsc was not found in the pkg-config search path

@heitzmann: Sorry my bad, I just noticed they switched the configure, but hadn't actually tried myself. The reason you get undefined reference errors is because CBLAS and LAPACKE are missing in their pkg-config --libs output. Adding those will make configure work, but the code itself will not compile due to undefined symbol errors while compiling pastix.c. I would assume that PETSc simply doesn't PaStiX 6.x yet and that the API changed. Their own build script still downloads 5.2.4 supporting that assumption.

@ChrisTX: Would you have a fix by any chance? I gave it a try but could not make it work. I must be missing some libraries, because what I get from pkg-config pastix --libs gives me many undefined reference errors...

@heitzmann: PaStiX 6.x doesn't ship pastix-conf anymore and they're now using pkg-config instead, with the package names pastix and pastixf (with Fortran support). Could you update test_optdepends.sh accordingly?

@heitzmann: You're welcome. Using a dedicated tool for comparing version strings is definitely a good idea. Lots of pitfalls due to various formats and suffixes.

Thanks @sigvald. I've modified a little the code to use sort -V to compare version strings, which seems more reliable (https://stackoverflow.com/a/4024263)

Here's a rudimentary solution for test_optdepends.sh that admittedly turned out uglier than I had hoped. I haven't tested it but I think it should work.

function version { echo "$@" | awk -F. '{ printf("%d%03d%03d\n", $1,$2,$3); }'; }

# Add hypre support
if [ -f "/usr/lib/libHYPRE.so" ]; then

    VERSION_MIN=2.14.2
    VERSION=$(readlink -f "/usr/lib/libHYPRE.so" | grep -oP '\d+.\d+.\d+')

    if [ $(version $VERSION) -lt $(version $VERSION_MIN) ]; then
        (>&2 echo "WARNING: COMPILING PETSc WITHOUT HYPRE.")
        (>&2 echo "HYPRE $VERSION FOUND BUT AT LEAST $VERSION_MIN IS REQUIRED.")
        sleep 3
    else
        CONFOPTS="${CONFOPTS} --with-hypre=1"
    fi
fi

Since the warning goes to stderr it doesn't affect the variable in PKGBUILD.

If you want you can either just take it and add it to test_optdepends.sh or add me as co-maintainer. Both are fine.
