$$\int \frac{1  5x^4}{(x^5  x  1)^2}dx$$ In theory it is indeed solvable with partial fractions. Maybe in practice too, I haven't tried it. But it's going to be very complicated because you can't find the explicit roots of the denominator. So I'm not at all sure if the method will work here. However, an easy solution does exist here, a primitive is simply $$\frac{1}{x^5  x  1}.$$
