I am working with a very large dataset, typically dealing with a few millions of combinations. I want to solve the assignment problem.(maximise the sum) I had tried solving it on a small test set using adagio::assignment, clue::solve_LSAP

I wasnt able to successfully install the "lpSolve" package on my system, threw some segmentation fault

Wanted to know which of these is faster or any other method which does it faster.

Take a look at:

> CRAN Task View: Optimization and Mathematical Programming

In addition to the lpSolve package [and the specialized solvers you mentioned], you can choose – in the "realm" of OSS – from glpkAPI and Rsymphony; and, furthermore, "major players" from the commercial domain [CPLEX, Gurobi, MOSEK] also provide interfaces to their solvers [hint: you might want to check if you're eligible for an academic license – or, if you are not, try to get hold of an evaluation copy].
