@corvus_albus Thanks, now it's fixed.

The file spooles.2.2.tgz fails to download from

However, it downloads using the https version of the same link:

You are right. I set the OMP_NUM_THREAD variable. Thanks for clarification. I am not really into programming, so a little bit helpless here :)

Spooles uses the pthread library, not openmp. I know there is an environment variable to control openmp (IIRC it's OMP_NUM_THREAD), but I'm not aware of anything like this for pthread. Anyway it is probably a Calculix problem. Looking at my code I have these calls for multithreading and single thread

rootchv = FrontMtx_MT_factorInpMtx(frontmtx,...


rootchv = FrontMtx_factorInpMtx(frontmtx,...

Thanks for the fast answer. Yes, I mean Multi-Threaded. Just noticed it when using Calculix, that Spooles is only using a single core although the environment variable is set to use more cores. So maybe the problem is within the Calculis package then.

@blixawillbargeld By MT you mean Multi-Threaded? If so, this version is compiled with MT (but without MPI), and on my system it works. Or better, since I haven't used it for some time, it used to work just fine.

Anyone running the MT version of Spooles? Any advice on how to build?

It builds now, but I still had to change the source URL. You might want to correct that, but at least it's easy to overcome. Thanks!

Try the new package.

After changing the source location as per hkl's suggestion, I end up with an error during compilation:

In file included from init.c:4:0:
../../timings.h:5:24: error: storage size of ‘TZ’ isn’t known
static struct timezone TZ ;

Any ideas of what to do?
