@daskol I've tried but then I couldn't push the change remote: error: invalid pkgbase: python-bitsandbytes-cuda121, expected python-bitsandbytes Seems it is not possible to change it without removing the repo.

My original idea was to (possibly) have multiple packages based on which cuda version is "hacked" in.

I was probably too quick in removing the hack before anyway.

Latest released of the upstream doesn't include libs for cuda >12.3. So this package is current broken:

@Premik Please remove pkgbase since you do not use that feature in fact and just hold the name.

I've removed the cpu/cuda hack. It seems it is no longer needed in the newer version.

There is currently a .so lib hack to workaround the The installed version of bitsandbytes was compiled without GPU support aka str2optimizer8bit_blockwise name error.

There are several warnings when used but seems to be working nevertheless..
