Can anyone confirm if numba works for them with llvmlite patched like below?

I did a clean build for llvmlite+numba and "from numba import jit" gives an llvm error.

For now, the only workaround seems to not update & add in /etc/pacman.conf IgnorePkg = llvm llvm-libs

Now it has reached my mirror as well. Updated!

For me, it's already there ;)

pacsearch llvm.*-libs: extra/llvm-libs 6.0.0-4 [installed], extra/llvm35-libs 3.5.2-4 [installed], local/llvm50-libs 5.0.0-2 [installed]

llvm in extra is still 5.0.1, so I'll stick with that until extra upgrades to 6.0.0

If you realize this happens before me please flag it!

@maschu: Would you consider updating deps: depends:llvm50-libs makekdepends:llvm50 Until a new version adopts llvm6 ;)

@mschu md5sum doesn't check out, maybe 4b3478517681c94c783867baad58c3db?

@bartus supports llvm>=5, try python-llvmlite-git?

Patches welcome.

However, the llvmlite situation repeats itself every couple of months and if you don't give me a reason why you *need* llvm5 as soon as it comes out I'm not willing to continuously provide different workarounds.

Also, please don't mis-quote, I said "easiest solution". Give me a reason why you need another one.

@mschu: ''solution is to not update LLVM until the llvmlite catches up.''
Why not creating a package for llvm4 on AUR and update dependencies of `python-llvmlite` package to point there. You would be able to build `python-llvmlite` in chroot with llvm4 and install it alongside llvm5 with split llvm4-libs.
//this is what I basically did on my system, but instead of building llvm4 form source just repackage llvm-libs-4.0.1 from `downgrader` to contain only `/usr/lib/*`.

I updated to llvmlite=0.20.0, which still depends on LLVM<5. If you don't need LLVM=5 and want to use llvmlite, the easiest solution is to not update LLVM until the llvmlite catches up.

The latest llvm update breaks this package since it requires llvm < 4.1. I checked the upstream repo but I am not sure they have updated the package to support llvm 5 but either case we need a llvm4 package or wait for the upstream to update.
