Just created the repo. PRs are welcome :)

In order order to update (and/or build), you may need to uninstall scilab then build it and finally reinstall it to avoid conflicts between the two versions.

For now, scilab fails to run when launched from outside a terminal.

Hey TheGoliath,

Your pinned comment, link to your github repo is broken. 404 Github page not found error.

Cryen commented on 2021-02-01 22:16

I have issues building it with yay

src/cpp/GetSparseVariable.cpp:106:22: error: invalid conversion from ‘int*’ to ‘mat_uint32_t*’ {aka ‘unsigned int*’} [-fpermissive]

Same thing in 109

I got the same error you mentioned. I solved it replacing the line --with-modelica by --without-modelica in the PKGBUILD file.

@AchmadFathoni, please report problems on the proper page next time. The maintainer of scilab might not be a maintainer of java-testng.

Got error when building java-testing. Here is the detail

Also why is 404?

Xwang commented on 2020-10-17 12:37

Today I get the following error while building the package:

File "./src/modelica_compiler/", line 1:
Error: Files /usr/lib/ocaml/num/nums.cmxa and /usr/lib/ocaml/stdlib.cmxa
       make inconsistent assumptions over implementation Stdlib__sys
Command exited with non-zero status 2

Should I open a bug upstream? Is it an ocaml arch packaging issue?

@Bartus sorry but I do not use hdf5. However if you tell me what and how to test, I can do that.

bartus commented on 2020-06-17 08:16

@Xwang, could you perhaps test hdf5 support, as this patch is quite crude and can introduce some problems.

Xwang commented on 2020-06-17 06:09

The latest version compiles and installs correctly on my pc. Thanks!

bartus commented on 2020-06-16 23:22

Finished the patchs for libxml, hdf5>=1.8

# run from local clone to merge.
git pull

Haven't tested the resulting binary, only build process.

ps. sorry for the mess, accidently posted this to scilab-git instead here.
