I've been in touch with the developer of scotch and he is going to attempt to fix some of the current issues and release 6.0.5

In any case, it should be fine for OpenFOAM, I've been using it. Can you explain in more detail the error when building OpenFOAM?

scotch don't run correctly for install OpenFOAM. What's the problem?

Yes, the undefined reference to scotchyywrap should have been fixed in the latest PKGBUILD in git.

I have some errors message linked to "undefined reference to scothyywrap", are they linked to your comments about bison/flex?

ioquatix commented on 2017-01-10 00:57

I tried to build this package today. I found new issues with bison/flex changes.

I contact the maintainer of the source code to find out how to fix upstream.

There are other issues but I can't reproduce the ones by franzf and Aeronaelius.

This package is being maintained but PKGBUILD file is fixing so many issues. I'd rather fix upstream. It's crazy.

I am facing the same error as franzf:

./test_common_random /tmp/rand.dat 0
ERROR: main: cannot replay random sequence

I gladly accept any help.

franzf commented on 2016-08-11 12:48

It does not seem to build:

./test_common_random /tmp/rand.dat 0
ERROR: main: cannot replay random sequence
make[2]: *** [Makefile:121: check_common_random] Error 1

Appreciate any help with this.

I'm sorry guys. I did not even realize I was still the owner of this package. I haven't been using Arch for a year or so now. I'll release it for someone else.

These extra compression options provide functionality that may be useful to other users. Ideally, I would like to provide them as optional dependencies but so far I couldn't find a way (they need to be present at link time).

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think that the current AUR packages depending upon scotch succesfully link against -lbz2 without a big fuss as to the amount of patches needed.

Is it possible to remove the bzip2 dependency, including the seds to include -DCOMMON_FILE_COMPRESS_GZ ? It requires a lot of patches to other packages where scotch is a dependency (basically to link with -lbz2).
