Thanks for maintaining this package. I think according to the Standards ( headers should go in /usr/include instead of /usr/include/scotch, the file parmetis.h would conflict with that provided by the parmetis package but at the top it says it says "Preferably use the original ParMeTiS include file...".

rememberthemer, thanks for the updated package build. Sorry about the delay in updating this. I must have missed the comment.

If anyone else sees something that needs to be updated, please let me know. As I said below, I am still learning here.

At present the way is created there are different compile flags for shared and static libs.
Specifically "-DIDXSIZE64" is ommitted for shared libraries. i.e. The shred and static libs are inconsistent.

Also, Manpages are installed to /usr/man when it should /usr/share/man (ARCH policy)

I have uploaded a fixed PKGBUILD to

Updated. Thanks for the heads up.

Could you make one small fix to the PKGBUILD file?

Line 23 ends up creating instead of a file, and as a result the shared scotch libraries never get built. Like so:

- sed "s/-lz -lm -lrt/-lz -lm -lrt -lpthread/" >
+ sed "s/-lz -lm -lrt/-lz -lm -lrt -lpthread/" >

thank you alfplayer. Without your comment I wouldn't have been able to build the package.

You're welcome!

I have created an updated PKGBUILD but I can't upload it. If BELiAL is ok with it, I would be happy to take the package over.

It doesn't compile until after I add -lpthread to LDFLAGS. I did it like this after cd in build function:
sed -i 's/-lz -lm -lrt/-lz -lm -lrt -lpthread/'
