Is CA still being developed?

Hi All,

Is Code Aster still being developed? Years ago there were releases every 6 months or so, it all seems pretty quiet at the moment.

Re: Is CA still being developed?

Hi Gary,

sure! Here are the official repositories (careful with the empty space):

SRC: https:// gitlab.com/codeaster/src
Changelog: https:// gitlab.com/codeaster/changelog

I am not happy the way new updates for Salome_Meca get pushed and how build dependencies are dealt with, but CA is still in development smile V15 had a "mayor" reengineering of the internals smile

Regards,
Fer

i am probably too dumb
but i cannot see in the  referenced pages anything describing how to build a new version of code_aster without singularity

if fact this links goes on and on opening no sub pages

Re: Is CA still being developed?

In the Compiling code_aster from scratch section : https:// gitlab.com/codeaster-opensource-documentation/opensource-installation-development/-/blob/main/install/install-code-aster-native.md it seems that you can install it without singularity.

i do not understand this link sends me to a code_aster forum thread
which does not give any hint to compile a stand alone version of newer code_aster

Do you remove the space between // and gitlab ?

you are right, all informations are about working and compilation inside container. I don't understand why developers force all to use container or salome-meca. It's a little bit ansys-workbench way.

Because I am not fan of containers nor salome-meca I was able compile the 15.5 version downloaded from sourceforge with version 14.6 settings (setup.py) only with change of src folder of aster and using newer mumps, ale other dependencies works. You just have to change the version of files in __pkginfo__.py

for me it was the solution for now, but maybe in future I will have to use salome-meca in container :-)

Re: Is CA still being developed?

https:  //gitlab.com/codeaster-opensource-documentation/opensource-installation-development/-/blob/main/install/install-code-aster-native.md

In this page there is the procedure to compile prerequisites from scratch (a tar archive) then code_aster without singularity containers. This for the unstable version

Re: Is CA still being developed?

The mpi installation is presented because it is always harder

For sequential version, discard installation of MPI librairies and at the end to configure prerequisities, set
ARCH=gcc-openblas-seq for exemple. seq is for sequential version (it is mentionned at the end)

For aster, use waf_std instead of waf (waf=waf_mpi now)

It is the only way to build code_aster now. We cannot support the old method ("from scratch") because we have several platforms on which to deploy code_aster/salome_meca and it is far too complex to manage with all the prerequisites required.

The real problem for me is the size of the final file (nearly 8GB in some versions).

hello

thank you for your valuable help i tried to install
here are my results

under opensuse 15.4
compiling is impossible because of incompatible libraries
some of them do not seem to exist or have a very different name

under unbuntu 18.04
compiling went ok
this happens when launching a problem under astk

Re: Is CA still being developed?

Have you verified that your installation is ok with lauching all verification test cases with run_testcases ?

You can use run_aster instead to have more informations

Re: Is CA still being developed?

run_testcase from src directory and run_aster (in install/bin) from where you want (before source the file profile.sh in install/share_aster)

hello nicolas_p

i am afraid we are not talking about the same thing
or i am completely dumb
none of the file comand or dir you mention exist in the  /opt/aster installation done from the
https:  //gitlab.com/codeaster-opensource-documentation/opensource-installation-development/.....

on the other hand in a working old style 15.2 installation
/opt/aster152/15.2/share/aster/profile.sh does exists
/opt/aster152/15.2/bin/run_aster does exist
i do not see any command named run_testcase
