THANKS! I had the same error and finally solved it with your help. And I spend more then 2 hours... :/
Before your post, without finding a solution (My former workaround was using the https://github.com/Stono/ike Docker Image and manually setting the DNS...)

After installing the latest Microcode update (Package is outdated, so I used the one from the Intel website), nothing changed for me (dmesg | grep microcode shows a update, but ike still fails)
Seems that your solution only works for Haswell, with the 5600U (Broadwell) it didn't work.

So I kept digging, with the information that HLE may be the cause and the info from this thread: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=202545 I build glibc without the flag "enable-lock-elision"

==========
sudo abs core
cp -r /var/abs/core/glibc /tmp
cd /tmp/glibc
# PKGBUILD: remove the line containing --enable-lock-elision with sed:
sed -i '/--enable-lock-elision/d' PKGBUILD
makepkg
sudo pacman -U /tmp/glibc/glibc-whatever.pkg.tar.xz
==========

Then reinstalled the package and it works!

Phate666,Hidi:

I've just resolved this after about 2 hours of digging.

This error:

iked: pthread_mutex_unlock.c:87: __pthread_mutex_unlock_usercnt: Assertion `type == PTHREAD_MUTEX_ERRORCHECK_NP' failed.

Is I believe related to Intel TSX extensions and HLE (Hardware Lock Elision). Broadwell and Haswell processors (My CPU is a 4790K) had faulty implementations of these and were later disabled by Intel.

Installing 'intel-ucode' (https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Microcode) which disables these features, and reinstalling this package fixed this issue for me.

For me it isn't working with errors like this

For me it isn't working. There're multiple errors like this..

Hi, i have the same problme like Phate666.
I'm on x86-64 and glibc is 2.19-3. Reinstalling glibc & recompiling doesn't solve the issue.

pelluch commented on 2014-02-15 22:51

Hi, I'm not sure why that could happen, but could you give me a few more details? Does it happen when you perform a specific action? Are you on x86-64 or are you using 32-bit arch? Also, this is a wild guess, but could you check if you have the latest glibc correctly installed?

Phate666 commented on 2014-02-11 16:35

Not working for me:
iked: pthread_mutex_unlock.c:87: __pthread_mutex_unlock_usercnt: Assertion `type == PTHREAD_MUTEX_ERRORCHECK_NP' failed.

You are very much correct, as namcap has pointed out. Sorry for the slip-up and thanks for the notice, I've corrected the PKGBUILD to reflect this.

angelblade commented on 2013-06-12 18:18

Its required add as dependency libedit. libedit is on [core]

pelluch commented on 2013-05-25 00:41

Upgraded to 2.2.0. I added a .service file for use with systemd and a patch for correcting the bug specified in https://www.shrew.net/download/changelog/ike/2.2.1-rc-1 .
