If you are having issues with NVidia, you need to build a patched libva-vdpau-driver-chromium, see here for details.

This package is compiled with 'use_vaapi=true', but you need to pass --ignore-gpu-blacklist if you want to enable hardware video acceleration using VA-API.

For those using distcc, the following PKGBUILD diff helps smooth over the gap between distcc arg processing and special Clang args:

diff --git a/PKGBUILD b/PKGBUILD

please update the vaapi patch, a new version is out: https://chromium-review.googlesource.com/c/chromium/src/+/2062356

@puckrockguy318: This is an upstream issue. I never had any issue rebuilding with "makepkg -e". Let keep it simple by only adding additional VA-API stuffs and nothing more.

punkrockguy318 commented on 2020-06-29 14:52

The two "ln -s" commands should be changed to "ln -sf" so that rebuilds can complete successfully and not fail with "ln: failed to create symbolic link 'third_party/node/linux/node-linux-x64/bin/node': File exists"

@dimytch check my comment just below yours

delete lines 252 and 253 in the pkgfile and try again
And i think this should be pinned, many people complain about build time, i recommend pinning that its highly recommended to use ccache to speed up build.

In my setup build time takes 6 hours the first time, but less than 20 minutes the seconds time.

after 24 hours of compiling, at link stage...

line 252 breaks packaging, file chromium-drirc-disable-10bpc-color-configs.conf is removed
