Target version:-


The scripts download and install dolfin-hpc version 0.8.2, but the configure.ac for Unicorn checks for version 0.8.3 of dolfin-hpc.


#1 Updated by Niclas Jansson about 6 years ago

Yes, the DOLFIN and Unicorn releases has slip slightly out of sync. There is a set of preconditioners that some Unicorn solver uses. These preconditioners were defined after DOLFIN 0.8.2 were released.

A workaround is to redefined unicorns configure script, change the line

PKG_CHECK_MODULES([DOLFIN], [dolfin = 0.8.3-hpc])


PKG_CHECK_MODULES([DOLFIN], [dolfin = 0.8.2-hpc])

and run regen.sh to regenerated configure.

This also reminds me that I should fix the remaining issues that prevents DOLFIN 0.8.3 from being released.

#3 Updated by Tobias Nilsson over 5 years ago

Hi! Should the bug status really be 'resolved' for this?
I got the same error again. Will use the suggested workaround.

checking for DOLFIN... no
configure: error: Package requirements (dolfin = 0.8.2-hpc) were not met:

Requested 'dolfin = 0.8.2-hpc' but version of DOLFIN is 0.8.3-hpc

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables DOLFIN_CFLAGS
and DOLFIN_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.
