@ eolianoe: Thank you very much. I (almost) entirely adopted your PKGBUILD :-) "Almost" because:

-- indeed, ptscotch-mpich2 is not provided. But...
-- ptscotch-openmpi is provided (since it's ptscotch built with openmpi :-) ). And if i remove it from provides=() i'm forced to uninstall openfoam.
-- scotch_esmumps5 is indeed NOT provided but if i remove it, i'm forced to uninstall mumps.
-- both mumps and openfoam build perfectly fine with this new version of scotch. So it can be considered as a drop-in replacement for the other *scotch* versions.
-- Meanwhile I filed requests of deletion for all other scotch packages as advised in
-- also enabled an optional dependency: bzip2 (which unfortunately will also constitute a make dependency for scotch and any project depending on it, however i tried both openfoam and mumps by adding -lbz2 and they built fine).

I would appreciate your feedback on the above issues.

I've orphaned in case anyone here is interested in maintaining it

@eleftg: you should not provide ptscotch-mpich2, ptscotch-openmpi, and scotch_esmumps5 as there are different "projects" the first are built with different MPI and the last is a legacy version, but they should stay in the conflicts array.
You should rather provide scotch, ptscotch, and scotch-esmumps as this is that your package really provides.
Here is a proposal for an update PKGBUILD (which use 'make install'):

Well... yes, sure. Why not?

I can rename gpart to something like gpart-scotch.
What do you think about this?

eleftg commented on 2015-01-28 22:51

this package conflicts with gpart (

The reason is an executable with identical name: /usr/bin/gpart

Headers relocated in /usr/include/scotch, like in scotch. (5.1.12b-4)

I changed the PKGBUILD according to you suggestion.

PS: added line is options=('!makeflags') ;-)

Hi, when i try to compile the package I get the following error:

make[2]: *** There is no rule to build the target ''

In my makepkg.conf I have the option MAKEFLAGS="-j4". After I have removed it, the package compiles fine. I think the line:
should be added to the PKGBUILD.
