Don't know if this applies to anyone else, but Unreal shrinks by about 4 gigs with clang 5.

If you get this error:
Permission denied (publickey).
fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

You need to register an account on Unreal Engine website to get access to their private Unreal Engine repository and also add public ssh key to your Github account, as described here:

Clang updated to 5.0. When 4.18 comes out it should just work. I'm going to work on getting this to compile with 5.0 over the next couple days.

Going to say this here too, recompile the package, everything works after that, the issue is caused by the recent glibc update.

@majora320 this is a temporary workaround till Epic addresses the issue.

@acerix Thank you:)

acerix commented on 2017-09-02 19:44

@Shatur Thanks for the changes. You new version looks good, so I just updated and added you as a maintainer.

I had the same issue as kro007 from 2017-08-08 08:29

UE4 would install but upon running it would freeze my system necessitating a hard reboot

It appears to be an issue with Mesa 17 and my R280X (not sure if any other cards are impacted)

Fix is simply to LD_PRELOAD the elf lib so:

LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/ ./UE4Editor or LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/ ./UE4Editor

And I'm up and running

More information is here and here:
