What is the result of 'echo $TRILINOS_DIR'? I get '/usr'. It may be that you need to do 'source /etc/profile.d/' or log in and out again before the environment variable is set. Please report back.

I'm trying to install dolfin using the provided PKGBUILD, but it fails when trying to find armadillo. I've reinstalled armadillo multiple times from AUR, but no go. Every time I try to build dolfin it fails at the ARMADILLO_TEST_RUNS. Any suggestions?

Orphaned, please see

The latest stable dolfin version is 1.0.0 released on 2011-12-19, and aimed at Ubuntu users. In Arch terms this means that several dependencies are quite 'old' (e.g. the required version of CGAL also requires an earlier Boost). So, whilst it would be possible to make the older fenics work with newer versions of dependencies, and it would be possible to work out how to install older versions of dependencies, I think that Arch Users would rather be using the latest fenics software and, if necessary, make it work on our very fresh systems.

So, I am going to maintain these packages: dolfin-bzr ffc-bzr fiat-bzr instant-bzr ufc-bzr ufl-bzr viper-bzr
and I am going to orphan these: dolfin ffc fiat instant ufc ufl viper, and if no one adopts them (and I can see no reason to do so) they will be deleted in a week.

Just to be clear, there are still some optional packages that are not found, but then I didn't install them.

...and this package: i.e. dolfin-bzr not dolfin.

Thanks for making this work! :D

Works now for both C++ and dolfin demos, well this one at least:

$ python2 /usr/share/dolfin/demo/pde/poisson/python/

The working combination of packages is to use all the fenics
packages in the AUR (these are now up to date) and use viper-bzr
instead of viper.

dolfin-bzr works fine now dolfin-bzr (

PARMETIS: for it to find parmetis, both metis and parmetis need to be installed
