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.

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.

The problem was related to the apache-lucene package on the AUR. I've contacted the maintainer and was added as a co-maintainer to eventually fix the package.

Everything should work now :)

Hi, I got this error when I try to install:

ERROR: Failure while downloading

Thx fro help

Xwang commented on 2020-05-16 14:55

@bartus is there anything I can do to solve it or is it an upstream bug?

bartus commented on 2020-05-16 14:13

@Xwag: this error is caused by including libxml headers in extern "C" section, forcing C style linkage.

Even though I've jdk8 and compiled the jgraphx 3.7.4, I still have the following issue:

checking lucene-core... no configure: error: Could not find or use the Java package/jar lucene-core used by Lucene (looking for package org.apache.lucene.LucenePackage) ==> ERRORE: Si è verificato un errore in build(). L'operazione sta per essere interrotta... :: Unable to build scilab - makepkg exited with code: 4

The apache-lucene package v.8.5.1-1 is installed, but it seems to contain only this file: /usr/share/licenses/apache-lucene/license.txt

EDIT: I've reinstalled the apache-lucene and now it has correctly populated the /usr/share/java/apache-lucene folder. Now the building process starts but it terminates with this build error:

/usr/include/unicode/ucnv.h:585:1: error: conflicting declaration of C function ‘void icu_67::swap(icu_67::LocalUConverterPointer&, icu_67::LocalUConverterPointer&)’ 585 | U_DEFINE_LOCAL_OPEN_POINTER(LocalUConverterPointer, UConverter, ucnv_close); | ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ /usr/include/unicode/uenum.h:68:1: note: previous declaration ‘void icu_67::swap(icu_67::LocalUEnumerationPointer&, icu_67::LocalUEnumerationPointer&)’ 68 | U_DEFINE_LOCAL_OPEN_POINTER(LocalUEnumerationPointer, UEnumeration, uenum_close); | ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ make[2]: [Makefile:883: src/cpp/libscifunctions_manager_la-dynamic_modules.lo] Errore 1 make[2]: uscita dalla directory «/home/andreak/tmp/trizen-andreak/scilab/src/scilab-6.1.0/modules/functions_manager» make[1]: [Makefile:844: all-recursive] Errore 1 make[1]: uscita dalla directory «/home/andreak/tmp/trizen-andreak/scilab/src/scilab-6.1.0/modules» make: *** [Makefile:1608: all-recursive] Errore 1 ==> ERRORE: Si è verificato un errore in build().

Which maybe is related to this bug:
