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.

The following packages are required in order to use R Notebooks:

r-evaluate r-highr r-markdown r-yaml r-knitr r-rprojroot r-rmarkdown

Since they need to be installed (either system-wise through AUR, or for a single user directly from CRAN), I think these should be listed as optdepends.

Out of date for a month ... what's going on?

Per the previous comment and that of dviktor, add fctix-qt5 as dependency in yr makefile.

flying-sheep commented on 2018-05-07 14:30

fcitx-qt5 as well, please

alfunx commented on 2018-04-17 13:36

Please add 'orc' as dependency, which provides liborc-0.4

lillemets commented on 2018-03-21 09:33

@SZJX I still think there is some missing dependency issue related to the liborc-0.4 error. I've had similar behaviour on three separate Arch systems: Run RStudio and it throws the aforementioned error. Then install gstreamer0.10-base and it runs fine.

SZJX commented on 2018-03-07 15:12

@lillemets Seems that I was able to remove gstreamer0.10-base after having installed it, and it launches fine?

Hi! After last update I got these lines when the package is being built (for English users: cannot stat - no such file or directory):
