I've run Arch Linux package manager to install sagemath many times before on Linux Manjaro and it never failed to compile before. This is the first time I've seen a compile error. This seems like a packaging issue?


>uname -a
Linux me-pc 4.14.74-1-MANJARO 

>cat /etc/*release
Manjaro Linux

I select sagemath from AUR using the package manager, click install. I fail with this error

I've put the complete build log file here (this form will not let me attach a plain text file).

I install the Linux system new, and was trying to install sagemath on it.

Posting this here in case someone wants to have a look to see why it failed to compile. It seems to be missing some prerequisites.

You're missing the gsl package. This used to be pulled in via pynac -> libgiac, but since the libgiac dependency was removed due to this is no longer the case. You should install libgiac manually for now, will fix the dependencies for next release
