The PKGBUILD sets make to USE_SYSTEM_LLVM=1, and current version of LLVM in Arch is 3.4.

Since Julia has some issues with LLVM 3.4, some segmentation faults and other errors can occur. Please see:!topic/julia-users/5zjoL6nMHyE and .

I've tried to downgrade Arch LLVM to 3.3 (using and that fixes the issues.

I didn't try compiling Julia with USE_SYSTEM_LLVM=0 as it was taking too much time, but I suppose that this will be the only option to the PKGBUILD since setting it to be dependent on LLVM 3.3 may be worst for the users.

Would it not make more sense to remove the dependency on librmath? That package conflicts with R. Since Julia is targeting the same kind of user base it is likely users will want to have both installed.

Also Julia uses a patched patched version of the Rmath library and recommend that their patched version is used (See [1] [2]). The AUR librmath package is a straight build from the R release.


Anyway, since I had R installed, I changed the PKGBUILD file and removed the dependency on librmath and then set USE_SYSTEM_RMATH to 0. All built fine.

The best case indeed. So shall it be removed and cause no longer problems

Indeed, the patch is no longer needed.
