@alexanderp intel-mkl currently shipped in [Community] does not include, which is required by PKGBUILD.

@Nexilim, no need for special Makevars file. R should already be using the correct libraries and headers during package compilation.

Nexilim commented on 2020-03-07 23:28

Could anyone please share their Makevars file with the correct flags and routes to MKL? Thanks!

@petronny, that's not a build error. That's an error during the check phase and it doesn't affect the package, nor R usage.

Hi, now I get

Error in texi2dvi(file = file, pdf = TRUE, clean = clean, quiet = quiet,  : 
  pdflatex is not available

when building this package.

Should we list texlive in makedepends?

@laborat, the recent (two days old) community/intel-mkl package lacks a lot of content from the split package.

Please keep on using aur/intel-mkl as part of aur/intel-parallel-studio-xe until the relevant scripts are ported to community.

Also, as a general note, those with Ryzen processors could obtain even better performance by setting an environment variable. Please see

The recent update to r-mkl appears to have an issue:

/home/user/.cache/yay/r-mkl/PKGBUILD: line 88: /opt/intel/mkl/bin/ No such file or directory

Indeed, my /opt/intel/mkl only has 'include' and 'lib'. Missing dependency? community/intel-mkl is at its latest version, 2020.0.166-3

@xia0er R uses R-package/src/Makevars instead of the system Makevars when building packages. I find this when I try to build r-mxnet.

I can't recall exactly but I think there is a way to set the Makevars in userspace by editing something like ~/.R/Makevars.

Also someone filed an issue on arch4edu about that the prebuilt binary needs rebuild against the latest mkl. I'm working on it.

My issue is fixed by editing /etc/R/Makeconf: FCLIBS_XTRA = -L/opt/intel/lib

Not sure why this is still needed, as I can see that /etc/ has /opt/intel/lib included. I have also tried to set the environment variable export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=-L/opt/intel/lib before starting R, but it doesn't fix the issue.

Hope this helps others with similar issues.

@xia0er, looks like your system (container) might be broken. It's considered bad practice to manually manage software inside the container. Instead, recreate your base image.
