During package installation, I'm frequently receiving the following two errors for various packages:
“gcc: fatal error: cannot execute ‘cc1’: execvp: No such file or directory”
“gcc: fatal error: cannot execute ‘cc1plus’: execvp: No such file or directory”
To resolve this, I'm constantly toggling the CC, CXX, and CXX11 flags for C and C++.
Is there a good solution to this? Is the problem with my Makevars file? Are there too many compiler versions installed on my system? I'd like to make a recommendation to my admins, but maybe there's an easier solution. I see this as preventing the use of R within my organization.
Thank you for taking a look.
Here is my Makevars file showing a few of the packages I've had to toggle installations for:
MAKEFLAGS = -j8 ## C++ flags CXX=g++ #CXX=/usr/bin/g++ # had to use this to get the install for dplyr to work CXX11=/usr/bin/g++ # had to do this to get the install for pdftools to work #CXX11=g++ CXX14=g++ CXX17=g++ CXXFLAGS=-O3 -march=native -Wno-ignored-attributes CXX11FLAGS=-O3 -march=native -Wno-ignored-attributes CXX14FLAGS=-O3 -march=native -Wno-ignored-attributes CXX17FLAGS=-O3 -march=native -Wno-ignored-attributes CXXPICFLAGS=-fPIC CXX11PICFLAGS=-fPIC CXX14PICFLAGS=-fPIC CXX17PICFLAGS=-fPIC CXX11STD=-std=c++11 CXX14STD=-std=c++14 CXX17STD=-std=c++17 ## C flags #CC=gcc CC=/usr/bin/gcc # had to do this to get the install for cli to work #CC=/usr/bin/gcc -std=c99 # had to do this to get the install for rlang to work CFLAGS=-O3 -march=native ## Fortran flags FC=gfortran F77=gfortran FFLAGS=-O3 -march=native FCFLAGS=-O3 -march=native
Also, here's the output from sessionInfo(), if relevant:
