@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

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.

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.

I think this is an R problem, since by running the test script mgcv-Ex.R with R version 3.2.4 (binary install), it encountered the same error in line 1940:
cl <- makeCluster(nc)
A workaround is to change the PKGBUILD to do `make check` instead of `make check-recommended`, to avoid this check altogether.
I'll follow this up with the R maintainers.

Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4600U CPU @ 2.10GHz

Sorry for my slow replies. I don't seem to be getting notifications despite subscribing to the thread.

Yes, the default is GCC. On my i7-2640m the "checking examples" step doesn't take more than 1-2min. Which CPU do you have?

nacnudus commented on 2016-06-02 18:10

Yes, I interrupted it after about eight hours with no activity on the process. Am I compiling it with GCC? It seems to be the default since
#_CC="icc" # comment to build without the Intel compiler
has been commented out by default.

alexanderp commented on 2016-06-02 16:27

I compiled again with GCC and get no such error.

This line seems strange to me:

* checking examples ...^C ERROR

Did you press Ctrl+C while in the middle of checking the examples?
