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.

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

    VERSION=$(readlink -f '/usr/lib/' | 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...

ChrisTX commented on 2018-08-17 09:32

@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 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.
