@hoorayphyer: Thanks for the feedback. Could you try to:
* rebuild libpng15,
* run 'gdb visit',
* try with this source: 'http://portal.nersc.gov/project/visit/releases/2.12.0/visit2_12_0.linux-x86_64-rhel7.tar.gz',
and give me the results?

I get the same error as @killozap. I did some downgrading experiments and found that all versions > 2.10.2 gave me the crash problem. The notable changes in PKGBUILD from 2.10.2 to 2.10.3 are the libpng15 instead of libpng12 and rhel7 instead of rhel 6. I don't know if this information helps.

@kilozap & @MisterEwok : could you provide me more information (for instance send me a smal file which make visit crash or some debug information with gdb or some special configurations or logs of 'visit -debug 5')?
Besides, could you try with another linux binary from [a]?

I get the same error as @MisterEwok, visit crashes when drawing a plot:
Exception: (LostConnectionException) /scratch/brugger1/kickit/visitbuild/visit2.12.0/src/common/comm/SocketConnection.C, line 484: <The reason for the exception was not described>

@MisterEwok: I tested with various versions from the AUR but none seems to suppress the message.
However, I'm able to make some plots maybe you should try one of the other visit packages https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/visit and https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/visit-build

@eolianoe:
If it's built with an older version of libicu, that should be made a dependency, right? Several versions live in AUR.

Also, it actually crashes on me when I press Draw after creating a plot.

eolianoe commented on 2016-08-30 06:29

@MisterEwok: I also get this error, but as it runs smoothly it's not a big deal. I think it's linked to the fact that the binary is compiled against another version of libicu.

MisterEwok commented on 2016-08-29 16:13

I get this error that I didn't get before. It still runs, but does anyone know what the actual dependency is here?

@paulmelis: updated, thanks

Hmmm, although the link was changed on https://wci.llnl.gov/simulation/computer-codes/visit/executables, it also doesn't work... Will tell the visit guys

paulmelis commented on 2015-11-24 04:22

The link

http://portal.nersc.gov/svn/visit/trunk/releases/2.10.0/visit2_10_0.linux-x86_64-rhel6.tar.gz

does not work anymore. Should be

http://portal.nersc.gov/project/visit/releases/2.10.0/visit2_10_0.linux-x86_64-rhel6.tar.gz

visit 2.7.0 is out, can you update it?

Thanks!

tnoo commented on 2013-04-02 06:42

version 2.6.2 is out

Glanzick commented on 2012-10-26 16:38

I was able to get the 32-bit version installed by modifying the PKGBUILD to download the 32-bit version off the site ("supports" RHEL5 and "Will work on most Linux x86 systems.". Also had to modify the dependencies to be libpng12 instead of libpng as mentioned by tzok since the current libpng on my Arch install is libpng15.

AsmundEr commented on 2012-08-22 08:06

The package needs cpio in order to install correctly. This is not indicated in the PKGBUILD.

tzok commented on 2011-03-25 10:03

The package needs tcsh to build and libpng12 to run. Those two are not included in the PKGBUILD
