Most excellent. Thanks again rouzbeth.

Alright folks, some changes:

1. Turns out removing .la files results in nrnivmodl not working anymore. For now we have to keep them.
2. There is now a patch to make neuron compile with Python 3. The new version of the PKGBUILD applies the patch and compiles neuron for the latest version of Python. If you want to have it work with Python 2.x simply replace all instance of "python" with "python2" in the PKGBUILD.

Great! Thanks for getting it to install with python.

New version to correct the md5. While at it, I also had another attempt at getting the python library to install. There is an error compiling for python 3, so for now we have to use python 2. But at least it works.

The md5sum appears to be wrong.

Also, I'd like to be able to install with python support as well as install the python module, so I can "import neuron" in a python session and work from there. I know that in order to do this, one must ./configure with "--with-nrnpython=/path/to/python/binary". If I add it to the PKGBUILD, I get an error during the package() phase "/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lnrnpython". I assume this has to do with the fakeroot environment but I'm not very familiar with how fakeroots are set up for things like this, so I can't get it to build the package.

Installing the python module is straightforward after that, of course, since it just requires running the (i.e., the two lines that are commented out). So, is it possible to get this package to install with py support, or should I just build and make from source to get this?

Updated to add options=('libtool'). Thanks achilleas.k

I need to add options=('libtool') otherwise I get errors when compiling with nrnivmodl.

Why is the nrnpython installation disabled in the PKGBUILD?

#cd "src/nrnpython/"
#python2 install --root="$pkgdir/"

Thanks xgdgsc!

The md5sum of the package has changed.
