This package is required for the R-package V8 (https://github.com/jeroen/V8). It is frequently updated, though unless it is broken, users must not build all updates. Since V8 contains a large codebase and compilation takes a while, I recommend to build it in a directory and not with an AUR-helper.

@JanMarvin: You're right it's something to do with the system + mirrorlist. Didn't realize that could be the problem because I was running things with the -Syyuu flags. Shows I'm on ICU67 (instead of 68) and there really is something wonky going on with the (Manjaro) mirrors since I can't seem to even find + install "reflector" (edit: manjaro mirrorlist != arch mirrorlist).

I'm going to point this at a Manjaro problem for now and just plan to reinstall my system in plain arch (serves me right for being lazy and using a GUI installer).

JanMarvin commented on 2021-01-10 21:17

Well you should update icu prior to the v8-R update. It works for me and builds in the Arch docker on github, so I'd say it's definitely a problem on your end. Outdated pacman mirror and/or outdated system? Either way, you're of course free to use the static build as mentioned a few comments earlier.

Anyone else having issues updating this package? I'm getting a static assertion failed: v8 is required to build with ICU 68 and up error, but it's weird because I'm doing an update not a fresh install...

I just ended up removing v8-r (sudo pacman -Rnsc v8-r) and installing it using the "Linux: Static libv8" instructions (https://github.com/jeroen/V8).

snippit:

../src/objects/intl-objects.cc:52:28: error: static assertion failed: v8 is required to build with ICU 68 and up

Wow, somehow I missed https://github.com/JanMarvin/archpkgs. Thank you @JanMarvin, this is a great service to the community of Arch Linux useRs

JanMarvin commented on 2020-12-31 12:02

@izahn: That is correct. Recently, the V8 R-package added a new way to get a static V8 build. However - while I was involved creating the initial static V8 build that led to the option you just mentioned - this download is intended for x64 Linux distributions that do not provide a working V8 package (iirc at that time: openSUSE). Arch users, on the other hand, are fortunate to have a working and updated PKGBUILD as well as an option to obtain binaries (for those that do not want to build V8 once a week). Finally, I am investing a good portion of my time working with upstream to keep the R-package usable with latest V8. Ultimately, it is a decision left up to the user.

izahn commented on 2020-12-31 00:42

The V8 R package now offers the ability to install binary and no longer requires a system library. You just need to set an environment variable DOWNLOAD_STATIC_LIBV8=1 as documented https://github.com/jeroen/V8

JanMarvin commented on 2020-11-06 18:37

If you're interested in binary builds, but do not want to use my arch mirror at github, there are now binary builds at github built using .github/actions and docker.

levitsky commented on 2020-10-20 15:28

Ah, thank you @JanMarvin. I didn't realize they were different.

JanMarvin commented on 2020-10-20 13:31

This is because you have installed v8-r from my github and not from the AUR. As stated here when using the github version of my package, you need to install V8's github master.

I keep this version here usable with the CRAN release and propose fixes upstream to Jeroen before they break any work environment.

levitsky commented on 2020-10-20 13:22

Thank you @JanMarvin. I didn't find this in the manual. Running install.packages('V8') in R results in compilation errors, such as:

/usr/include/v8-internal.h:450:38: error: ‘remove_cv_t’ is not a member of ‘std’; did you mean ‘remove_cv’? and /usr/include/v8-internal.h:450:63: error: ‘::Perform’ has not been declared
