@alexanderp, it nicely works! I really appreciate your timely improvements to it.

Since "provides" is dynamically generated, it is not reflected in .SRCINFO and this page. However, it works fine when actually installed.

@haruomaki, done as you suggested. please check and let me know.

I recommend adding R's builtin packages such as r-base, r-mass, or r-survival to the "provides" field, following the approach of the official r package.

There is currently an issue. For example, when trying to install the r-classint package, pacman attempts to install r even though r-mkl is already installed. This is because r-classint depends on r-class and r-kernsmooth, which are actually provided by r. It would be fine if r-mkl also provides r-class and r-kernsmooth.

Two things: 1) if you're having issues with MKLROOT but the path variable is setup correctly, run the install not as root. 2) For the latest version, had to install the oberdiek tex package. Otherwise it gets stuck building the manuals and crashes during build.

Hi. Currently, R does not support curl 8. See

Hi, I have the following message error

checking if libcurl is version 7 and >= 7.28.0... no
configure: error: libcurl >= 7.28.0 library and headers are required with support for https

For those having problems with arithmetic.c, check this thread to see how to change the source file:

Hi @hanziness . The script requires $MKLROOT to be set. If you installed intel-openapi-mkl, you should have the following on your system which gets sourced on login:

cat /etc/profile.d/ 
export MKLROOT=/opt/intel/oneapi/mkl/latest

@alexanderp For me (on Manjaro), the package installation fails because MKLROOT is unset, even though intel-oneapi-mkl is already installed (and I have rebooted since then). The reason of the failure, in my understanding, is that in PKGBUILD we first check if MKLROOT is unset and if it is unset, we stop (lines 93-96). Then if we did not error out (i.e. MKLROOT is set), we source the files that set MKLROOT (lines 97-106).

So, to make the package build for me, I move the MKLROOT check to AFTER sourcing, as seen below. My question is whether the current behaviour really is the intended one? This should fix MKLROOT related errors despite MKL being installed.
