@lobachevsky Thanks a bunch for updating to 1.4.2!

salviati commented on 2020-10-14 23:05 (UTC)

Current stable seems to be 1.4.2

@salviati: Yes, I never got Kwant to compile against regular mumps, which is the reason for mumps-seq-shared. I'll have a look whether I can get it back to work. I will also update Kwant to 1.5 since it's outdated.

Build fails (installed mumps, mumps-seq and mumps-seq-shared fail to compile) with the following error:

Hi hunar1997,

sorry for the late reply, I've missed the AUR mail.

I do get the same failing test you described and I will have a look at it before Christmas and report it upstream, if that hasn't happened already. I guess the problem might come from Python 3.8, because I also saw a lot of deprecation warnings during the build process.

That you can install it via pip is not surprising, because the package builds, it might just not be correct. :)

It fails to build
kwant/tests/ .....F

=========== 1 failed, 349 passed, 1104 warnings in 74.78s (0:01:14) ============ ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in check().

I could install kwant using (pip3 install kwant --user) but couldnt get MUMPS to work that way

The reason is that the pyx-files of kwant 1.3.2 were cythonized with a Cython version that did not yet support Python 3.7.

This is fixed in upstream version 1.3.3, whose release I missed (I'm running the git version myself). Sorry for that. I'll push a new package version in a minute.

Hi gerson,

sorry for the late reply. I'll investigate.

I had trouble installing from AUR again. But I'm not sure what is failing, so I'm pasting part of the error message at the end of this comment.

I've managed to install it using pip (--user), which downloads version 1.3.3.

kwant/_system.c:33652:21: error: ‘PyThreadState’ {aka ‘struct _ts’} has no member named ‘exc_type’; did you mean ‘curexc_type’?
    *type = tstate->exc_type;

Thanks for the comment! I saw it in the docs, but somehow forgot to add it.
