Thank you for the feedback, this is great! I kept investigating my particular issue and it turned out that I did not pay sufficient attention. I actually forgot to comment out the relevant include and lib paths that I set in the config.site file … my bad. As I proceeded, I encountered a few more

Hi everyone, I'm finally joining the party here and so far made good progress following Taras' instructions. Disclaimer - I'm new to working with R sources. But would be very happy to help with testing and reporting to accelerate support native M1 builds. I am using the R-4.0.3 sources with the

Creating a native Aarch64 build of R on my M1 machine was surprisingly straightforward. Here is a step-by-step instruction of what I did in case someone wants to replicate it: 1. Install native homebrew as described in this blog post under “Multiple Homebrews”

As a follow-up, I now have a preliminary native build of R (using a gfortran compiled from sources forked from GCC and using minor modifications of Tomas Kalibera's instructions). The check timing was 148s, with Aqua (not X11) Tcl/Tk built from the sources and no X11 support, so not quite

Thank you for this update! I think that Apple Silicon has great potential for data science, the SPEC benchmarks reported by Anandtech look very encouraging. My M1 Mac should be arriving shortly, is there some way one could help out with the effort? — Taras > On 17 Nov 2020, at 15:57, Prof

Prof. Ripley, Thanks for these updates and for the efforts by all involved in this process. I am holding off on moving to the M1 based Macs until next year, as besides waiting for a larger display variant, as I am also waiting on updates to other applications that will support that hardware in

One thing that I noticed both on Silicon and the intel macs at GitHub Actions, is that the CRAN installer does not create the symlinks in `/usr/local/bin`. Probably some permission or entitlement issue. So you'll probably want to create them manually. E.g. on GHA it goes like this:

Thank to all who are working on this. Looks like a lot of work. Also looks like when and if R can run in native mode on the M1 it will be very fast. -Roy > On Nov 17, 2020, at 6:57 AM, Prof Brian Ripley wrote: > > Mine (a 8GB MBA) arrived today, so I have started doing some comparisons. >
