Hello, I am trying to install the mpich library on my machine. I noticed it wasn’t available in the CCR, so I tried downloading the snapshot on AUR. The makepkg -S works fine, as I managed to create the .src
However, when I try to sudo pacman -U mpich-3.2-1.src.tar.gz , I get two errors saying that the package is corrupted and that metadata are missing…

I also tried to build from the source, as proposed on the official website, with no success.

If anyone have any knowledge about that, that would be great !

Yeah that’s not an installable package - that’d be the gzipped source tarball. Why are you using makepkg -S? See man makepkg for information on how to use it. You probably want to use -s, possibly -si. Refer to the manpage to learn about the two.

Hi and welcome to Chakra.

Make sure to check out our guide on importing Arch or AUR packages to CCR also.

Hi, thank you for the quick answer, I will try to look forward into that. I had no idea it worked differently from what I’m used to.
