The current release of nodejs-lts-carbon will sometimes fail an assertion from libuv interfaces (See example below). Rebuilding nodejs-lts-carbon locally on my system with no changes fixed the assertion.

Additional info:
* package version(s): 8.11.3-1
* config and/or log files etc.: See below
* This was also reproduced by at least two other users who commented on the 'code' aur page.

Steps to reproduce:
1) Install nodejs-lts-carbon
2) Build 'code' from AUR (for example)
3) Early in the build process (yarn's Linking dependencies step), nodejs will crash with the following output excerpt:

[3/4] Linking dependencies...
[---------------------------------------------------------------------] 0/18064node[11279]: ../src/ node::{anonymous}::After(uv_fs_t*): Assertion `0 && "Unhandled eio response"' failed.
1: node::Abort() [node]
2: 0x55dfbf7a893b [node]
3: 0x55dfbf7e17f7 [node]
4: uv__work_done [/usr/lib/]
5: 0x7f6bed77b7f8 [/usr/lib/]
6: uv__io_poll [/usr/lib/]
7: uv_run [/usr/lib/]
8: node::Start(uv_loop_s*, int, char const* const*, int, char const* const*) [node]
9: node::Start(int, char**) [node]
10: __libc_start_main [/usr/lib/]
11: _start [node]
This task depends upon

I’ve rebuilt the package, please let me know if that fixed it for you.

Yep, that appears to have fixed it. Thanks!

This needs another rebuild because of the libuv 1.22.0 update. Building 'code' form AUR again fails with 8.11.3-2 (it just segfaults), but works with a rebuilt version of nodejs-lts-carbon.

Cool, finally found the bug report :)

Segfaults for me:

pacman -S nodejs-lts-carbon yarn
git clone
cd example-yarn-package

@Zrax how do you get the detailed output of the segfault? I had to dig though core dumps for find a reference about libuv
