ERROR: configuration failed for package ‘nloptr’
-----------------------------[ ANTICONF ]-------------------------------
Configuration failed to find the libv8 engine library. Try installing:

  • deb: libv8-dev or libnode-dev (Debian / Ubuntu)
  • rpm: v8-devel (Fedora, EPEL)
  • brew: v8 (OSX)
  • csw: libv8_dev (Solaris)
    Alternatively, on Linux (x86_64) or MacOS you can set environment variable:
    to automatically download a static version of libv8.
    To use a custom libv8, set INCLUDE_DIR and LIB_DIR manually via:
    R CMD INSTALL --configure-vars=‘INCLUDE_DIR=… LIB_DIR=…’

The error at the end is saying that you need to install libv8 on your system. It’s suggesting with Ubuntu that would be the libv8-dev package. I’m not sure what the package would be for Centos 7.3, but hopefully there is one available to install.

Or run


and try installing brms again.
