Hi, it seems that there is an error in the PKGBUILD. It should be "license = ("custom")" instead of "license = custom". Otherwise there is an error and the package cannot be compiled.

@mickele: thanks for the modified PKGBUILD. I checked your modifications and it seems fine for me. Please keep me posted if something else goes wrong ;-)

Hi, I'm the maintainer of code-aster on AUR (
While updating code-aster I had two problems with metis. The first one is that code-aster needs onmetis, pmetis and kmetis from metis4.
The second is that the last version of code-aster uses metis4, but if you build code-aster with mumps support this needs metis5.
So I modified your PKGBUILD and other files so that:
- it builds the programs onmetis, pmetis, kmetis etc.
- it is compatible with metis5 (I added a "-4" suffix)
I sent vua mail this modified version.
Now we have two options: you can adopt my modified version of the package; I can create a new version of metis4 (something like metis4-full).
Probably the first option is the best, but what do you think about it?
