In order order to update (and/or build), you may need to uninstall scilab then build it and finally reinstall it to avoid conflicts between the two versions.

For now, scilab fails to run when launched from outside a terminal.

It does not compile: File "src/modelica_compiler/symbolicExpression.mli", line 27, characters 5-8: Error: Unbound module Num make[3]: *** [Makefile:3769: src/modelica_compiler/symbolicExpression.cmi] Error 2 rm src/modelica_compiler/parser.mli src/modelica_compiler/linenum.mli src/modelica_compiler/lexer.mli

The package fails to compile. Latest ocaml (4.06.0) seems to be the issue.

@hpfmn: downgrading is fine if you downgrade all of your package, but please, never symlink libraries and advise people to do it. If the soname change there might be a reason, you just need to rebuild.

won't build or start with current openmpi version 3.0.0:

/usr/bin/scilab-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libmpi.so.20: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

creating a symlink in /lib/openmpi or downgrading to 2.1.1 helps though

@Xwang Apparently Scilab isn't compatible with apache-lucene>=7

I have the compile error without having scilab installed.

I get the following compile error:

The configure script can't find jgraphx, even though it is installed (with the aur jgraphx-git package).
What should I do ?

eleftg commented on 2017-10-28 20:56

It fails to build the documentation.

the "make doc" step of build() throws this output:

https://pastebin.com/dAXqcVNz

Even by removing "make doc" from the PKGBUILD and completing successfully the installation, we can't bypass the issue, as during execution we get :

"stack smashing detected"

which means the error will most probably have to be reported upstream (if not already the case). Running software with stack buffer overflows is generally not a good idea.

@ye_k: you should never create symlinks for libraries, if the soname changed there is a reason. Clear your build directory and rebuild everything against '/usr/lib/libhdf5.so.101'.
Everyting is working after a build in a clean chroot with the current hdf5
