Thanks for the fix. :-)

I pushed another update to fix errors due to missing dependencies.

Manually installed intel-mkl from git/MAKEPKG instead of yaourt. Tried the same thing by cloning the repo and makepkg for r-mkl and running into this error.

/home/matt/aur/r-mkl/r-mkl/PKGBUILD: line 87: /opt/intel/mkl/bin/ No such file or directory

So I manually installed intel-compiler, then ran into another error after once again trying makepkg for r-mkl.

configure: error: in `/home/matt/aur/r-mkl/r-mkl/src/R-3.3.0':
configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables
See `config.log' for more details
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

The latest update (3.3.0-2):
- fixes compilation with icc/ifort
- icc/ifort are enabled by default now
- adds floating point precision options to icc
- removes i686 build options

You'll notice an error while checking the Matrix package. This is due to the LAPACK functions which error out on zero size matrices.

That was an error from Intel's side. Try again now.

You won't be able to build intel-mkl with yaourt anyway. I suggest cloning the AUR repo locally and building with "$ makepkg -scCi"

Hello all,

I've tried three times to install r-mkl with yaourt. I keep getting this error...any thoughts?

Thank you.

Thanks for your reply.

Then I'll use the GCC compilers until this is fixed.

AnRe005, the latest changes to Intel Parallel Studio introduced some changes which have broken compilation with icc and ifort.

AnRe005 commented on 2016-06-15 14:57


I tried to compile the pkg with the intel compilers and added the -fp-model precise flag to the _intel_cc_opt=... line.

The compilation fails with the message:

checking whether ifort and icc agree on int and double... configure: WARNING: ifort and icc disagree on int and double
configure: error: Maybe change CFLAGS or FFLAGS?

What else do I have to adapt?

Thanks in advance

No problem. Please keep us updated.
