Anybody else experiencing sudden crashes of RStudio with the latest built version (1.1.463)?

NB: Tested with the AUR packages mentioned below. Works like a charm.

Aside from the out of date topic: Wouldn't it be cleaner to depend on the gstreamer packages from AUR?

Installation fails on 32 bits architecture. Must edit PKGBUILD to remove several '/'

It required 'orc' for runtime. Please update the PKGBUILD

For those having the std::runtime_error error message: This is due to the 'later' package. The latest github release has a fix for this: devtools::install_github('r-lib/later'). For any future arch linux users wondering why everything broke.

I confirm that my problem was about glibc v2.28 and that, so, was on R and not on RStudio

@nessuno. Fixed by removing all R packages besides base and rebuilding/reinstalling rstudio-desktop-bin. R is most current version from pacman. Although when I try to build some new packages (e.g. "later"), it throws a similar error and cannot build... "terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::runtime_error' what(): Mutex creation failed"

I imagine it has to do with some sort of internal C thing..perhaps as usual, archlinux is ahead on gcc or something that makes older syntax from the packages not build? its beyond my level of current computer comprehension.

Fixed by downgrading lib32 and glibc...which is apparently a no-no, but I need to make this code work for a deliverable later today...always famous last words...

sudo pacman -U /var/cache/pacman/pkg/glibc-2.27-3-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz /var/cache/pacman/pkg/lib32-glibc-2.27-3-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz

I have a very similar error

what(): Mutex creation failed

but I have it if I try to install sparklyr and it started doing so since I updated r-mkl and not this package


  1. If you discover how to solve the problem, please let me know!
  2. Are you sure that you didn't update your r package together with the rstudio one?

Hey, I upgraded to latest version and installed the packages hexd recommended. I can only get a few commands in (e.g. loading libraries, read.csv) before the R session aborts with the error:

"The R session had a fatal error. Unexpected exception: Mutex creation failed"

It seems to not be correlated to any particular command and can occur with or without user input to the command line. Does anyone have any thoughts on why this is occurring? Does it have to do with me not updating some C libraries in pacman?

Thank you.
