Thanks to an advice on the rstudio-desktop-bin package page I solved the aforementioned problem through


But now I've also another problem, since the is required. I saw there are other older icu versions on AUR, but the 61 is lacking. Is there anyone that is able to help me.

Thank you very much as always

Problem solved downgrading glibc from 2.28 to 2.27

Thanks so much for the help

@nessuno, probably something related to glibc.

After the last update of the package I have this errore when I try to install sparklyr

terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::runtime_error'
  what():  Mutex creation failed
/usr/lib64/R/bin/INSTALL: line 34: 10596 Done                    echo 'tools:::.install_packages()'

Someone is able to help me in understanding what it means and how to solve it?

Thanks so much!

The new types defined in GCC 7 (_Float32, _Float32x, etc) seems to caused the problem.

Updated to 3.5.0.

WARNING: Compilation with icc/ifort is broken.

@pat-s In my experience, no, I've never had freezes during normal usage. I've been using R with the Intel MKL on all my computers for several years.

The only drawback I found was that some packages are not compatible with icc/icpc, therefore I sometimes need to fallback to gcc/gfortran in ~/.R/Makevars (e.g. for the forecast package)

Glad to hear it's working properly on your side now.

Usage related: I encountered several "freezes" during usage that only occurred with the "intel-mkl" library (not with openblas or default blas). No error is thrown, the process is just stuck at some point and there is no way to track down the problem. I'll try it again with the latest version, maybe something changed. Just wondering if anyone else faced similar problems in the past?

EDIT: Installation worked and the errors mentioned have vanished. Thanks!

@alexanderp : r-mkl-3.4.4-3 compiled with icc without any problem!
