[SOLVED] paraview and vtk

Hi all

I use paraview and vtk. This means, i have to install both at the same time, but this is not possible as one conflicts with the other.

I know there is an AUR package called 'paraview-opt'. And this workes perfectly. But compiling Paraview allways takes a long time and the fact that this package is often out of date and thus the build fails after ~1h is a big pain.

I have the ability to update and fix the 'paraview-opt' package myself. But it is allways a time-consuming ordeal.

Would it be possible to setup the community package 'praview' in such a way that it does not conflict with vtk?


Thanks
David

Re: [SOLVED] paraview and vtk

It can easily be changed in the community package but the maintainer has no interest in doing so.

You can find a precompiled version of paraview-opt in the following unofficial repository:

Re: [SOLVED] paraview and vtk

Apparently, the official package now installs to /opt/ and does not conflict with vtk anymore. Awesome!

It is only in 'community-testing' for now https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/61594, but seems to work so far.
