Hi, I'm having a problem trying to build this package. Can anyone help me?

It seems to be some issue with Python/NumPy but I have no idea how to fix it..

My attempt:

The package has been updated and should now be functional, I completed a successful build. Working on Interview now.

I get the same error as @DGalt with linux 4.8.8-2. Any solution?

DGalt commented on 2016-06-10 04:23

getting "Error: A failure occurred in build()". Initially thought it was due to it not being able to find Interviews, so ran makepkg after editing PKGBUILD to include --without-iv, but still fails (although with slightly different message).

Initial attempt:
Second attempt:

What's weird is Interviews is installed in /usr (I see the InterViews folder in /usr/include). I just went ahead and installed neuron on my arch install on my laptop and it went fine - not sure why it's not working on my other machine. My other machine is more up-to-date, though - 4.6.2-1 vs 4.4.5-1

Edit: after updating my laptop to 4.6.2-1 and trying to re-install neuron I get the same series of errors that are shown in the "Second attempt" pastebin

That's a tough one. I don't see how it can be due to packaging. I'm looking into it :)

When I open nrngui and click Tools -> Model View, the program crashes. The problem is: the file /usr/lib/python/neuron/ should be called simply

Is this an upstream bug?

I am going to push an upadte for neuron 7.4 shortly.

Try commenting out the line

patch -p1 < $srcdir/patch.diff

in the PKGBUILD file.

I'm having troubles installing the package with python2 (python3 works just fine). I've replaced "python" with "python2". The error I'm getting is

nrnpython.cpp:169:32: error: invalid conversion from 'char* (*)(FILE*, FILE*, const char*) {aka char* (*)(_IO_FILE*, _IO_FILE*, const char*)}' to 'char* (*)(FILE*, FILE*, char*) {aka char* (*)(_IO_FILE*, _IO_FILE*, char*)}' [-fpermissive]
PyOS_ReadlineFunctionPointer = nrnpython_getline;
Makefile:562: recipe for target 'nrnpython.lo' failed

I have no idea what I am doing really and I'm quite clueless where to start looking for the problem. I have numpy, scipy (for python2) and mpich2. Any hints much appreciated.

Great. Thanks again rouzbeh.
