However, when I try to use it in a SLEPc algorithm, it breaks because MatCreateVecs yields standard vectors even if I set "-vec_type cuda". Looking through the source etc. it seems that MatShellSetOperation can't be used to implement a new MatCreateVecs function (MATOP_CREATEVECS does not exist). Is there a way to change the type of vector that comes from MatCreateVecs for shell matrices?

It is MATOP_GET_VECS. If you implement this operation, most SLEPc functionality should work with CUDA.

PETSc developers: shouldn't MATOP_GET_VECS be renamed to MATOP_CREATE_VECS ?
