I tried configuration (i.e. cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX:PATH=/usr ..) with lapack+blas from extra and without gcc-fortran. It is successful but strangely it gives these lines
-- Found Blas(ATLAS)
-- Found Lapack(ATLAS)
Note: I run ldconfig after installing lapack+blas. But the compilation breaks down because it can't find libatlas. I have to make further investigation.

Hmm, I have lapack and blas installed from the extra repository (and I reinstalled them to make sure they're not corrupt). So there must be differences between lapack in extra and atlas-lapack.

I forgot to add that if you have gcc-fortran without lapack+blas the package builds, but at the configuration stage it warns that lapack was not found and some algorithms may not work.

Hi Tempel, I have reproduced your error message on my system by uninstalling both gcc-fortran and lapack+blas. Perhaps your lapack library got corrupted, or you have non-standard lapack library (e.g. a vendor library) that isn't recognized by gmsh. With atlas-lapack the package builds fine.

Really? For me, without gcc-fortran, it doesn't complete the cmake command, ending with "-- Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!" Earlier in the same step, it says "CMake Error: your Fortran compiler: "CMAKE_Fortran_COMPILER-NOTFOUND" was not found. Please set CMAKE_Fortran_COMPILER to a valid compiler path or name."

To test this, I built it successfully, then cleared out the build directory, then removed gcc-fortran (no other packages were changed). After that, it would not build again.

You're right that each .f has a corresponding .c. So could this problem be from vagaries in the cmake system? Is there any reason it might behave differently in two different systems?

The package builds fine without gcc-fortran. Please note that for each .f source file there is a corresponding .c file in the source tree.

Tempel commented on 2010-10-17 03:31

It looks like gcc-fortran should be in the makedepends.

Feel free to report any problem in the future without the fear to bother me. BTW, gmsh needed to be rebuilt after gmp upgrade.

Tempel commented on 2010-04-06 17:13

I just recompiled gmsh, and now it works perfectly. Sorry to have bothered you!

gborzi commented on 2010-04-04 20:25

I have just recompiled gmsh and tried it on a simple IGES file. It was opened without problems. Please check if you have /etc/profile.d/ and that it is correctly sourced.
