Thanks, applied.

scalapack does use some deprecated MPI routines. The following "prepare" in PKGBUILD fixes this issue for me

prepare() { cd ${pkgname}-${pkgver} sed -i 's/MPI_Type_struct/MPI_Type_create_struct/g' BLACS/SRC/*.c sed -i 's/MPI_Attr_get/MPI_Comm_get_attr/g' BLACS/SRC/blacs_get_.c cd CMAKE patch -Np0 < "$srcdir"/cmake3.13.3.patch }

Thanks, heitzmann. I applied a patch I found in the link you gave to me. It does the same as the sed-command you suggested.

Build fails with CMake 3.13.3 as reported in

A quick and dirty fix to get it working while there is no fix upstream is to add

sed -i -e '20 a "${PROJECT_SOURCE_DIR}/BLACS/INSTALL"' ../${pkgname}-${pkgver}/CMAKE/FortranMangling.cmake

around line 30 in PKGBUILD

The only clean way to handle soname bumps are rebuilds. snoname bunp are there for a reason. Symlinking is the wrong way to solve such things.

I have openmpi, scalapack, lapack, and blas installed on my system and had the following problem today with scalapack. The library was binded to the mpi library, wheres the recent update of openmpi changed this to, rendering scalapack non-functional. Is it possible to modify the installation script so that the bindings are always to the symbolic links, i.e.,,,, instead of actual library files including version numbers? This way everything should work fine.

Re-installing scalapack solved the problem as expected.

Is it possible to make an mpi version of blacs/scalapack, ubuntu has libblacs-mpi-dev and libscalapack-mpi-dev, is it possible to get Arch versions?

As mentioned below: 'gcc-fortran' is missing as a makedepends.

license has become an array

license='custom' should be changed to license=('custom')

Does not build because of a typo in the sed command line 52:
pkg/usr/lib -> ${pkgdir}/usr/lib
