I get a bsdtar error when installing with trizen, right after the install script finishes. It seems that a file 'data.tar.gz' is missing.

Removing breaks Encrypt and Decrypt. The examples in the documentation don't work when is removed. Please remove the libcrypto line from duplicate-libs.txt. Maybe removing so many libraries is dangerous? What's the motivation for removing so many?

@lol-md5 portaudio is already an optional dependency.

lol-md5 commented on 2018-10-23 22:34

@JP-Ellis, would you mind adding portaudio to the optional deps?

lol-md5 commented on 2018-10-23 22:04

@JP-Ellis, yep, disk space was the issue. Man, this is such bloated software.

JP-Ellis commented on 2018-10-22 23:36

@lol-md5 it appears you have an issue with running out of space. Do you have about 10GiB of free space? Can you try building to package using makepkg?

I'm having trouble installing this.

Installation failed. See

What should I do? I need this for school.

@ucb Your best bet with Mathematica is to download the snapshot of the PKGBUILD in some directory and have the installer in the same directory, and then building everything using makepkg. I'm not familiar with pakku, but most likely what is happening is that pakku is downloading the PKGBUILD into some other directory (something like ~/.cache/pakku/mathematica or $TMPDIR/pakku/mathematica) and then running makepkg in there (which doesn't have the .sh installer and thus makepkg fails).

Newbie here:

Can somebody tell me what is the 'startdir' of the installer? I executed the installer using pakku from my download dir where the .sh resides but the installer couldn't find it. I also tried to edit the source line to point to the download dir so far to no avail.

Thanks in advance!

@shuye02 Portaudio is already an optional dependency. The reason it is optional is that it is not needed when Mathematica is used within the terminal only.

@RunAndTumble Indeed Mathematica is quite a big package. I already make attempts to reduce its size by removing duplicate system libraries or unnecessary binaries. Also please have a look at the end of the PKGBUILD as I include an option to remove all documentation. It is commented out as most people will actually want the documentation; however, you are free to uncomment that and save a large amount of space.
