This problem is related to the updated openmpi package to version 4. I believe PETSc only supports version 3 at this moment. I had the same issue and could only make it work by downgrading openmpi back to the last version. If you do, make sure you recompile any packages that depend on it, such as fftw-mpi.

I had the same problem as jvellojin, I installed fftw-mpi (had to remove fftw). Then I faced a similar problem with hdf5 and hdf5-openmpi. That problem was solved too.

However here is another, much nastier problem I'm facing:

=============================================================================== Compiling and installing SUPERLU_DIST; this may take several minutes =============================================================================== TESTING: check from config.libraries(config/BuildSystem/config/ ************* UNABLE to CONFIGURE with GIVEN OPTIONS (see configure.log for details):

Downloaded superlu_dist could not be used. Please check install in /home/linuxdream/.cache/yay/petsc-git/src/petsc/arch-linux-c-opt

==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().
Aborting... Error making: petsc-git

I'm really lost now... Needless to say the petsc package also returned the same problem(s).

I believe it works with fftw-mpi. It might work with fftw if you set --with-mpi=0, but I haven't tried that.

When trying to install from pamac gives the following error when building PETSC:

Unable to find fftw in default locations! Perhaps you can specify with --with-fftw-dir=<directory> If you do not want fftw, then give --with-fftw=0 You might also consider using --download-fftw instead.

Setting --with-fftw=0 is followed by the error: CMake Error at /usr/share/cmake-3.13/Modules/FindPackageHandleStandartArgs.cmake:137 (message): PETSc could not be found. Be sure to set PETSC DIR. (missing: PETSC FOUND)
