Current packages state (non-conflicting ones):

bartus commented on 2019-04-10 11:40

Note: This is a non conflicting version of blender-git package with GPU architecture detected at build time.
This package is also hosted on GitHub.
Use env vars to control build process:
  • DISABLE_CUDA=1 to skip cuda kernel build (cycles+compositor+optix)
  • DISABLE_EMBREE=1 to skip embree-bvh build.
  • DISABLE_NINJA=1 to switch build system to make (default:ninja)
  • DISABLE_OPTIX=1 to skip optix device build.
  • DISABLE_USD=1 to skip universal scene descriptor build.
Usage cases:
  • export DISABLE_CUDA=1 before build
  • DISABLE_CUDA=1 ~your-aur-helper~
  • makepkg DISABLE_CUDA=1
  • yay -S blender-2.8-git --mflags "DISABLE_CUDA=1"
Yay users warning:

Since yay relies solely on aur-rpc to solve dependencies instead of calling makepkg --sync it can't follow dependencies logic defined in PKGBUILD. That's why it's up to the user to provide dependencies to enable desired features. Optional features includes cuda/optix/embree/usd.

tl;dr; If you want to prebuild cycles kernels, you have to install CUDA beforehand. If you don't have CUDA installed, PKGBUILD will fail unless you disable cuda with DISABLE_CUDA=1, same for embree, optix and usd.

Hi. It seems that blender needs LLVM6 to build, so maybe add llvm6-libs to deps : - )

And thanks for maintaining this and other packages!

@kingcreole: looks like cmake<>cuda issue in arch repo. For now, just enforce sm_50 (here is PKGBUILD for you ;). If the problem prevails, I will have to drop autoselect Cuda arch ;(

kingcreole commented on 2018-08-30 20:53

thank you, for me it shows

-- Found CUDA: /opt/cuda (found version "9.2") 
-- CUDA nvcc = /opt/cuda/bin/nvcc
-- Automatic GPU detection failed. Building for common architectures.
-- Autodetected CUDA architecture(s): 3.0;3.5;5.0;5.2;6.0;6.1;7.0;7.0+PTX
-- Enabling CUDA support (version: 9.2, archs: sm_30 sm_35 sm_50 sm_52 sm_60 sm_61 sm_70 compute_70)

@kingcreole: please look at the build log if autodetect is working for cuda

-- Found CUDA: /opt/cuda (found version "9.2") 
-- CUDA nvcc = /opt/cuda/bin/nvcc
-- Autodetected CUDA architecture(s):  5.0
-- Enabling CUDA support (version: 9.2, archs: sm_50)

In case it isn't, remove this line form prepare() function. git apply ${srcdir}/SelectCudaComputeArch.patch

hi, i can't build 2.8 currently, i get this error: [ 12%] Generating filter_sm_30 sm_35 sm_50 sm_52 sm_60 sm_61 sm_70 compute_70.cubin nvcc fatal : Value 'sm_30 sm_35 sm_50 sm_52 sm_60 sm_61 sm_70 compute_70' is not defined for option 'gpu-architecture' i have an Optimus setup with an nvidia 840m graphics card i believe, when i type nvidia-settings it sais that nvidia is not loaded and "ERROR: Unable to load info from any available system" with optirun just the later

Hi, you don’t need the blender.install file anymore, since pacman 5.0 the hooks take care of updating the .desktop database and the icon cache.

openvdb4.revert.patch its outdated

i've fixed it

bartus commented on 2018-03-31 06:25

@wojtex: I've noticed, the only problem is that I had left my keys in Krakow and won't be able to update the package till after the holidays ;)

wojtex commented on 2018-03-31 02:58

openvdb4.revert.patch is not needed anymore:

bartus commented on 2017-09-30 11:56

I tend to rebuild all my packages few times a month to check if everything works fine.
blender-2.8 stops working after 25.09 cause of openvdb4 compatibility patch which breaks blender against archs openvdb package. I patch this today and everything works fine now.

Building entire `install_deps` brigs all blender dependencies redundant to arch packages to /opt directory.
