@BrLi are you sure that you have the community rust/cargo package? Did you clean your previous build with -C?

@figue I'm afraid that doesn't help, I turn to GCC then.

@BrLi can you try to workaround the build with clang?

env _CLANG=1 makepkg -si

Hi, I'm having issue when building under clean chroot... The chroot system is up-to-date

can you help me?

@leewdch pushed new release with that patch. It fixes compilation in IceCat (based off FF-ESR)... I haven't tested though...

Also, clang is now used only if you export the variable _CLANG before building or if you set inside PKGBUILD.

@leewdch Try the patch from

Can you tell what's wrong? I'm trying to compile on a clean install but somehow it fails saying I need more than 2 value to extract:

@AndyRTR thank you. It's really weird, but I tried even in a virtual machine on a Windows host, and it fails too. So, if I maintain this package I need to validate the build. Feel free to delete CC and CXX variables from my PKGBUILD if you want continue compiling with gcc

AndyRTR commented on 2018-09-07 15:58

I see no need to switch to Clang compiler. Using gcc worked well for me building in a clean chroot.

figue commented on 2018-09-05 23:06

I had to switch to clang instead of gcc to build FF-ESR on my machines... Will test deeply tomorrow, but it should be OK. Is this a problem for someone?

Edit: tests were ok, will push change tomorrow.
