I am getting the following errors when trying to build this.

First lots of "identifier "_Float128" is undefined for lots of functions:

In file included from /usr/include/math.h(315),
from /opt/intel/compilers_and_libraries_2018.0.128/linux/compiler/include/math.h(95),
from /usr/include/python2.7/pyport.h(325),
from /usr/include/python2.7/Python.h(58),
from _configtest.c(1):
/usr/include/bits/mathcalls.h(85): error: identifier "_Float128" is undefined
__MATHCALL (acosh,, (_Mdouble_ __x));

Then the build ends with:

removing: _configtest.c _configtest.o

Any pointers on how I can debug this is appreciated.

Thanks for the update! The "" file has changed in 1.13.1 (fixing the version bug), so I believe that it needs to have its checksum updated.

As a side note, won't this file be downloaded with the source anyways? Why is it downloaded separately?


dkumor commented on 2017-07-18 18:46

Please update to 1.13.1 - 1.13.0 fails compilation with

AttributeError: LooseVersion instance has no attribute 'split'

This was fixed in 1.13.1:

gergi commented on 2017-02-07 14:09

Add dependency 'cython'.

tsumina commented on 2017-01-20 07:15

@ricrogz you can try to make a symbol link of /opt/intel/mkl to /opt/intel/composerxe/mkl and this should work.

ricrogz commented on 2016-10-16 11:07

As @bear mentioned, the current intel-mkl installs to a different path than mentioned in the site*.cfg files (/opt/intel/mkl instead of /opt/intel/composerxe/mkl).

Due to this, the package, as it is right now, is compiling *without* mkl support.

matrs commented on 2016-03-05 05:37

I did the changes suggested by @bear in the site files(hint: edit site files and install using --skipinteg) and it found the mkl library which previously didn't (FOUND: libraries = ['mkl_rt', 'pthread']). The thing is that if you dont make those changes it doesn't found the mkl library and still builds, so it's easy to believe that everything is working but your numpy is using another blas library.

liubenyuan commented on 2016-02-26 04:51


Thanks ! It works.

BTW, when compile, -openmp may be deprecated, it suggests using -qopenmp

bear commented on 2016-02-25 18:07

The site.cfg is not correct, after changed to the following, can import correctly after installed.

library_dirs = /opt/intel/mkl/lib/intel64
include_dirs = /opt/intel/mkl/include
mkl_libs = mkl_rt
lapack_libs =

liubenyuan commented on 2016-02-25 14:44

and can this package be compiled using -iopm5 instead of -openmp ?

liubenyuan commented on 2016-02-25 14:32


Thanks ! I install the patchelfmod in aur (this package needs update, for example the pkgname is patchelfmod however the source dir is patchelf), and numpy.test() works fine.

and i think a patch in linking to is needed :)

anyway, thanks for your solution !

liubenyuan commented on 2016-02-25 14:18


I can only find patchelf in my archlinux, where could I get patchelfmod ?

BTW: I also tried to add -lirc in LDFLAGS, is it correct to do so?

trovao commented on 2016-02-25 11:51

@liubenyuan, @benob

I've solved this with patchelfmod by adding a dependency explicitly on the shared object files:

$ sudo patchelfmod -a /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/numpy/linalg/
sudo patchelfmod -a /usr/lib/python3.5/site-packages/numpy/linalg/

I've tried tweaking the to include -lirc, but it seems my flags weren't enough.

liubenyuan commented on 2016-02-25 02:20


same problem here. using intel-mkl 2016.1.30

Installs fine with intel parallel studio xe 2015, but when I import numpy I get the following error:

Preloading the library fixes the problem, but I would like a better solution.

gilli commented on 2014-11-14 17:10

My installation failed because intel-fortran-compiler and intel-compiler-base targets havn't been found.

I guess this is a dependency issue.

bred commented on 2013-11-15 08:34

The conflicts are solved automatically by pacman.
python-numpy (form extra) will be removed automatically.

enedene commented on 2013-11-14 16:06

When installing python-numpy-mkl, do I need to remove the python-numpy from extra repository first? Are there conflicts? Or is it all done automatically?

bred commented on 2013-11-12 17:31

This Pkg must be compiled in couple with intel parallel studio:

bred commented on 2013-11-08 14:53

Yes is still maintained.
But I've never seen the patch.

I'll fix the problem shorter:

iosonofabio commented on 2013-11-08 12:36

Is this package still maintained? Are the changes suggested by spleach going to be included?


spleach commented on 2013-09-10 21:01

Some of the dependencies in the PKGBUILD seem unnecessary.. The distribute dependencies should instead be replaced with setuptools, which are in the [extra] repo, whereas the python[2]-distribute packages in `depends` aren't available via pacman or the AUR.

Also, nose packages are also only required for testing, not for packaging, so should be listed either in `optdepends` or `checkdepends`.

Finally, on x86_64 systems, should be passed `--compiler=intelem` instead of `--compiler=intel`. I'll attach a patch in a minute...

jdarch commented on 2013-09-08 08:53

I can understand one might want to use Intel's compiler suite in addition to the MKL, but would a dependency on 'intel-mkl' not suffice for a minimal 'python-numpy-mkl'-package?

Anonymous comment on 2013-07-23 10:02

numpy-1.7.1 is out.

bred commented on 2013-02-17 09:46

For this PKGBUILD you must use the imtel-mkl and intel-compilers provided in the Intel parallel studio XE:


Nabobalis commented on 2012-10-05 12:10

Thanks for this. So does this create a python 2 and 3 version of numpy with mkl?

bred commented on 2012-10-03 06:28

Edit this line in the PKGBUILD

true && pkgname=( 'python2-numpy-mkl') <<<<<< !!!

Remove 'python-numpy-mkl 'from the list.

How can I just build python2-numpy-mkl without installing python3 and related dependences?
