Ubuntu 13.4 cannot compile

Asked by Niklas

Hello Community,

I recently installed a second VM with the new Ubuntu 13.4 and Fenics via PPA. Unfortunately the JIT Compiler cannot compile and throws a runtime error:

           RuntimeError: In instant.recompile: The module did not compile with command 'make VERBOSE=1

I tried reinstalling the package, without success. Does Fenics run with 13.4 on other machines?

The problem seems to be in /usr/share/ufc/UFCConfig.cmake, where /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libpython2.7.so is used also on 64 bit platforms. To fix the problem temporary, change line #20 from

  set(UFC_PYTHON_LIBRARIES "/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libpython2.7.so")


  set(UFC_PYTHON_LIBRARIES "/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libpython2.7.so")

I will look for a more permanent fix.
