Your .SRCINFO file is duplicated. You probably used >> instead of > when making it.

@rhagu I've examinated the GUI and the source package for it. No build instructions. There's only a bin official package, but I want to build this from sources. If you want create a dakota-gui-bin package

Thank you, it works now! :-)

Any plans for dakota-gui?

I try to install dakota with manjaro and get an error, that /usr/include/menu.h already exists.

Everything else seems to work fine. Any idea why this happens?

the output is all german:

I forgot to add this but the fix that I received from Sandia, which answers storrgie's question and also makes the CXXFLAGS -fpermissive not necessary.

change these two lines in dakota-6.6.0.src/packages/external/acro/packages/utilib/src/utilibOptionsParser.h

If you pull from their repository you will have the most updated version, this was the recommendation I received from someone at Sandia. I have asked Sandia for their repo address after discussing with them this fix. I am not sure if it is a public repo that can be pulled as of yet.

I just got dakota building on my computers by adding -fpermissive to the CXXFLAGS in the makepkg file.

I'm having trouble building this on my machine with all dependencies satisfied. Does this build properly for you? Please see the error I'm getting below:
