It builds and works correctly on my machine with icu 74.2-1

Hi, the package no longer builds or works with the recently updated ICU version 74 (at least for me).

Attempt to reinstall fails with the following:

@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
