I enabled LTO and PGO (using a profile generated by running the test suite). They are also used by Mozilla to compile the official firefox-beta binaries they provide, as they allow some performance boost, therefore it is synced in this package.

It is possible to keep the compilation options of the old versions of this package, by setting the options at the top the PKGBUILD (they are documented) to enable_pgo=n and enable_lto=n, or by building it with: env enable_pgo=n enable_lto=n makepkg

However, if running out of memory is an issue, before disabling LTO, try: env enable_no_keep_memory=y makepkg

It should tell LD to be less aggressive on the cache utilization during the compilation. It does not change anything on the generated binary, it should slow down a bit the compilation, but at least you can still enjoy a compilation with LTO.

pkgver is 61.3 while the source is DEVEDITION_61_0b1_RELEASE.tar.gz. Incomplete update?

TESTED: Here's the fix. Change the second $meme... source=("$meme2.tar.gz"$meme.desktop $name on line 27 of PKGBUILD..

And they use Python 3 now:

Thanks for clarification and the update. Seems the first line of the updated PKGBUILD should be:

The patches are useful too (disables annoying features), but i'll make a small cleanup as soon as 61 reaches b1

yan12125 commented on 2018-04-30 09:07

Seems only PKGBUILD is necessary? Mind removing other files?

I've only tried on nightly with rustup, so I'm not sure about 1.24.1.

bm456 commented on 2018-03-06 14:28


works with rust-1:1.24.1-1?
