The package does not install. There is an error related to the Python binding:

  File "/usr/lib/python3.11/site-packages/setuptools/command/", line 219, in finalize_options
    parsed_version = packaging.version.Version(self.egg_version)
  File "/usr/lib/python3.11/site-packages/packaging/", line 198, in __init__
    raise InvalidVersion(f"Invalid version: '{version}'")
packaging.version.InvalidVersion: Invalid version: 'nest-2.20.1'
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package().

Hi everybody, i have troubles using nest.

After installation I can import nest in python however the module seems to be pretty empty, i.e.



AttributeError: module 'nest' has no attribute 'ResetKernel'



only gives

Help on package nest:

NAME nest


FILE (built-in)

When using nest without python from Terminal I get an [INFO] message about with a path pointing in the source where I created the package ~/Downloads/nest/src/nest-simulator-2.20.0/nestkernel/rng_manager.cpp

Also at the end of compiling I received the warning

WARNING: Package contains reference to $srcdir

also when looking in my /usr/lib/python3.8/site-packages/nest the only thing there is Shouldn't there be more?

Can somebody help me with this? I couldn't find anything on this. Also playing around a bit with the PKGBUILD while looking into the Install guide didn't help me yet.

Thanks alot!

Hi, I got this error, when importing nest: File "/usr/lib/python3.5/site-packages/nest/", line 53, in <module> import lib.hl_api_helper as hl_api ImportError: No module named 'lib' Maybe there're some dependencies missing? I don't know, where lib.hl_api_helper should come from. Edit: I was wrong. For some reason I had to add /usr/lib/python3.5/site-packages/nest manually to the sys.path Thanks for the package, Leo

Hi, cool package. Anyway, the hyperlink for the upstream URL points to: You probably want it to point to: Also, the software seems to build and install fine on my i686 laptop. -Dave
