Thanks. 3.5.2-2 fixed the problem for me.

If I run R, I get /usr/lib/R/bin/exec/R: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory and if I start RStudio I get a black IDE with ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED in the center.

ls -l /usr/lib | grep libtinfo gives the following output:

-rw-r--r--   1 root root        24 Jan 11 10:45
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root root        16 Jan 11 10:45 ->

I think what broke my R was replacing the official r-package with this one.

Confirmation: Replaced this package with the r-package in Manjaro's official extra repo. Now R and RStudio works again.

Please add ncurses5-compat-libs as a dependency, as it is still compiled with ncurses5 while arch moved to ncurses6.

Hash value of microsoft-r-open-3.5.0.tar.gz has been changed

Microsoft changed the download url, that's why you get the invalid hash and the missing directory errors. Fixed in pkgrel 2.

- makepkg complains about invalid hash of the main tarball downloaded. - If replacing correct hashes in PKGBUILD, it crashes claiming being unable to cd to microsoft-r-open subdirectory

microsoft-r-open is now in archlinuxcn repository. A watcher bot will automatically sync all updates here in AUR into the repository. [archlinuxcn] Server =$arch ## or use a CDN (beta) #Server =$arch ## or install archlinuxcn-mirrorlist-git and use the mirrorlist #Include = /etc/pacman.d/archlinuxcn-mirrorlist Once the repo is added, archlinuxcn-keyring package must be installed before installing this package.

You're right Scimmia and thanks for the suggestion. I've removed the extra dep and updated MRO to 3.3.2 which was released today.

Scimmia commented on 2016-11-22 03:08 (UTC)

Please use bsdtar to extract the rpms, the same way makepkg already does. No need to pull in an extra dep for a useless wrapper script.

alexanderp commented on 2016-10-30 22:06 (UTC)

I've adopted the package and updated it to the new MRO format by Microsoft with bundled MKL. To use this package you must read and agree to the EULAs in /opt/microsoft-r-open

petecan, I will consider changing the dependencies. To break the cycle one might also consider using pacman with the '-dd' option. With regard to my earlier comment other changes in the package, I feel using a setup (regarding paths etc) more like the R package in the regular repository with the MS-modifications added might make sense.

petecan commented on 2016-01-30 11:32 (UTC)

Thanks for the package, very useful! I'm having troubles installing it because of circular dependencies MRO -> MRO-openblas / MRO-openblas-systemblas / revomath -> MRO. I have the "openblas-lapack" package installed, but "microsoft-r-open-blas-systemblas" also fails to install because of the circular dep. Is it very hard to break the cycle making these BLAS libraries not to depend on microsoft-r-open?

jdarch commented on 2016-01-21 08:56 (UTC)

Should this package try to mimic the rpm/deb/win packages distributed by Microsoft as much as possible, or should it go its own path and adapt itself to Arch more?

jdarch commented on 2016-01-19 20:34 (UTC) (edited on 2016-01-19 20:35 (UTC) by jdarch)

MRO should be there any minute now, but I thought it won't hurt to make a final RRO including the hotfix_01

jdarch commented on 2016-01-18 09:24 (UTC)

MRO is scheduled for release on the 19th, I will create new packages and ask to merge the RRO-ones with them.
