IIRC faust is quite picky about the LLVM version, so it will only accept 4.0.0 but not 4.0.1, we used to adjust those checks ourselves every time LLVM got an update before Teteros contributed that patch to upstream (see I’ll try to update the package soon™, but until then you should be able to work around that issue by compiling radium with llvm 4.0.0 which you can obtain from

your patch seems to be merged already but i stil have problems compiling it with LLVM 4:

make[1]: Entering directory '/home/lie/.cache/pacaur/radium/src/radium-4.8.5/bin/packages/faust2'
make -C compiler -f Makefile.unix prefix=/usr/local

Makefile.unix:121: *** "Unknown LLVM version 4.0.1". Stop.

Yeah I use integrated graphics (Intel). I agree that it should not make a difference in theory, but if it does in fact happen I think it can be called a bug, be it in Radium, Mesa, LLVM or somewhere else entirely. It might be a good idea to consult somebody with a deeper understanding of the inner workings involved.

Do you by any chance have a non-radeon card? When I removed 4.0 libs the radeon/mesa opengl driver stopped working, but radium could start, although it printed an error that opengl is not working which is right of course.

I was thinking of reporting it, but in theory only llvm39 should conflict with llvm, the libs packages are fine without the conflict array as they only provide the extra libs, rather than overriding anything.

Anyway the fix is merged already (!) and in upstream 4.8.0 release, check it out when you can.
EDIT: Merged in master but not in 4.8.0 yet.

I still don’t quite get why that error occurs for you but not for me, even though I also have installed both 3.9 and 4.0, but if there is in fact some kind of incompatibility between those two versions of llvm-libs you might want to report a bug to the project (i.e. (I’d rather not report it myself because I can’t reproduce it and I still don’t really understand what happens). As for the patch, I don’t have the time/calm to review it properly right now so it’ll probably land in a few days or once it gets merged.

TL;DR I patched radium's bundled faust to work with llvm 4.0, either grab the patch from here:
and add this to the PKGBUILD (and source array)
patch -d bin/packages/faust2 -p0 < "${srcdir}/0001-LLVM-4.0-support.patch"
or wait for my pull request to be merged:

Got the time to track this down, it appears the crash happens when you have llvm-libs from repo installed, which is the 4.0 version, this occurs because llvm39-libs does not seem to conflict with it, so I ended up with llvm39 and llvm39-libs installed (which is intented) as well as llvm-libs (4.0) Of course, this should work as ldd on radium shows it correctly links to lib, but for some reason it crashes for me with the 4.0 lib package installed.

I ended up patching radium's faust to work with llvm 4.0 as without it, some important libs like mesa would have to be recompiled to work with llvm39.

Still occurs with your package build unfortunately. I'll snapshot my current partition, and do a fresh install to eliminate some linking or lingering cache/config from possibly interfering. Though you'd think a chrooted build would help if that was the case.

J5lx commented on 2017-04-29 08:09

Personally I don’t experience that at all. So weird! For now I uploaded my own build of the package at, could you try installing it and see whether the error occurs with that build as well?

Indeed 4.7.6 compiles without errors.
However after I installed the build package and try to run radium, this is the output.

Official x64 build runs without this error.

The commit you mentioned is part of 4.7.6, so I suppose their is nothing special left to do for me. That aside, the package builds perfectly fine for me, both 4.7.4 and 4.7.6, so I’m a little curious as to what exactly you are referring to.
