To transition users from this package to repo's now newer python-numpy with blas-openblas, I suggest that you change this to an empty metapackage that depends on those two.

That would ensure that everyone gets the latest versions of those, from whichever distro they are using (Arch Linux or a derivative).

You can use the following PKGBUILD code:

pkgdesc="Meta-PKG to use NumPy with the optimized OpenBLAS-Lapack libraries"
depends=("python-numpy" "blas-openblas")

@MarsSeed, good point! fixed.

Please kindly do one more update: change depends openblas-lapack to blas-openblas.

This will help users who used this package to make the transition to the new Arch blas-openblas and avoid install/upgrade conflicts and confusion.

@MarsSeed, you're right on both. The new blas-openblas package means this package is no longer needed. I will no longer update it.

MarsSeed commented on 2023-06-15 12:41 (UTC)

Also, is there a difference in building this with the openblas version of lapack, or just using the repo-built python-numpy and switching its dependencies from original blas et al to the openblas implementation?

Because the new repo package blas-openblas should be a drop-in alternative to the original blas/cblas/lapack/lapacke packages at install & runtime, without recompiling anything.

TLDR; Please change depends openblas-lapack to blas-openblas.

Arch announced on June 14 a new blas-openblas repo package.

The earlier AUR package openblas-lapack is the same, therefore it will have to be deleted.

This PKGBUILD doesn't seems to work with newer python-setuptools. Possible upstream issue:

FYI, I have to run export SETUPTOOLS_USE_DISTUTILS=stdlib before makepkg to make the package successfully built.

I will help co-maintain this if it is difficult to keep up with updates. Many packages depend on numpy and often require the most recent version for their own latest releases.

Can we get an update to ? This is necessary for common packages which depend on numpy like pandas.

edit: thanks for taking care of that!

You should determine the sitelib path dynamically:
