The latest update (3.3.0-2):
- fixes compilation with icc/ifort
- icc/ifort are enabled by default now
- adds floating point precision options to icc
- removes i686 build options

You'll notice an error while checking the Matrix package. This is due to the LAPACK functions which error out on zero size matrices.

Thank you Lennartv. That was a big help :-D

The md5sum and md512sum for r.png have changed.

New md5sum: 8e0c51650b8a63f110fa7b09e699e9c4

New md512sum: 1491b01d3d14b86d26c383e00e2305858a52ddd498158c9f7f6b33026ee01f246408b1676cffea73f7783c8c4cf546285705c43c0286adbd75ad77706918b5fe

[SOLVED]: Following your solution proposal to compile packages where icc fails...

My .R/Makevars is:
CFLAGS=-mtune=native -g -O3 -Wall
CXXFLAGS=-mtune=native -g -O3 -Wall
Installing "quantreg" I get:

Error in dyn.load(file, DLLpath = DLLpath, ...) :
unable to load shared object '/home/lennartv/R/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-library/3.3/quantreg/libs/':
/home/lennartv/R/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-library/3.3/quantreg/libs/ undefined symbol: __must_be_linked_with_icc_or_xild
Error: loading failed

Thanks in advance for your help. I highly appreciate your package in general.

Never mind. This solved the issue for me:

CFLAGS=-mtune=native -g -O3 -Wall
CXXFLAGS=-mtune=native -g -O3 -Wall
FCFLAGS=-O3 -fopenmp
FFLAGS=-O3 -fopenmp

Hello wast3,

yes, some packages fail to compile with icc. You can switch to gcc temporarily by creating a .R/Makevars file.

Or, you can build the package with gcc.

The package compiles and runs well, however I can't install anything from within R, as there are always undefined symbols associated with intel compilers. For instance, if I try install.package("igraph"), the compilation runs well, but the package fails to load with:

Error in dyn.load(file, DLLpath = DLLpath, ...) :
unable to load shared object '/usr/lib/R/library/igraph/libs/':
/usr/lib/R/library/igraph/libs/ undefined symbol: for_cpstr

Rcmdr fails with:

unable to load shared object '/usr/lib/R/library/quantreg/libs/':
/usr/lib/R/library/quantreg/libs/ undefined symbol: etime_

Guess something must be missing either from this package or intel-mkl

I'm having a problem with the update (used pacaur and yaourt):

Thank you Alexanderp!

AnRe005 commented on 2016-06-17 11:28

Thanks for the fix. :-)

alexanderp commented on 2016-06-17 09:28

I pushed another update to fix errors due to missing dependencies.

greenisagoodcolo commented on 2016-06-17 06:49

Manually installed intel-mkl from git/MAKEPKG instead of yaourt. Tried the same thing by cloning the repo and makepkg for r-mkl and running into this error.

/home/matt/aur/r-mkl/r-mkl/PKGBUILD: line 87: /opt/intel/mkl/bin/ No such file or directory

So I manually installed intel-compiler, then ran into another error after once again trying makepkg for r-mkl.

configure: error: in `/home/matt/aur/r-mkl/r-mkl/src/R-3.3.0':
configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables
See `config.log' for more details
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().
