Hey, sorry for taking so long Thaodan. Verbose mode doesn't show anything else:

[code]pacman -Sy --verbose :( Root : / Conf File : /etc/pacman.conf DB Path : /var/lib/pacman/ Cache Dirs: /var/cache/pacman/pkg/ /var/cache/pacman/custom/

Also, funny thing, I noticed from the pinned comment, the '<' '>'. I don't think these are supposed to be there, but either way it doesn't seem to work.

Can you provide logs? May try add --verbose to pacman.

gfurst commented on 2019-04-02 18:04

This may be a bit unrelated here, but I can't get access to the repository (thaodan pre-built) via pacman. Even though I can open it just fine in my browser. What actually happens is that pacman complains of the database being unreachable, but I don't seem to be having dns resolve issues anywhere else. Does anyone have a clue why might this be?

Thaodan commented on 2019-03-27 19:55

Please try again. I had a typo if you look a few lines above.

I'm not able to build the current version. It tells me:

 1:42.10 ERROR: --enable-rust-simd does not work with Rust 1.33 or later. See .
 1:42.15 *** Fix above errors and then restart with\
 1:42.15                "./mach build"
 1:42.15 make: *** [ configure] Error 1

@sevenk: add CXXFLAGS+="-mno-avx2" to build().

sevenk commented on 2019-03-20 11:45


can someone tell me on how to build without avx2? All my attempts so far where fruitless.

What have I to change in PKGBUILD or mozconfig? Or where to put the -mno-avx2 flag?

BR seven

Or we need to depend on libvpx 1.7 on AUR instead of 1.8

farseerfc commented on 2019-03-09 12:02

@Thaodan libvpx 1.8.0 is not compatible with firefox, so we may need to disable "--with-system-libvpx" in mozconfig to use the mozilla vendored libvpx.

Thaodan commented on 2019-02-19 18:18

@pix3l it's missinformation because Firefox isn't linked against Qt. ( I think you mean Kmozillahelper which links against Qt). Run ldd on any ELF binary of this pkg and you'll see.

Farseerfc explained the issue already and he is probably right (need to verify). On my pc the build runs just fine but only because I have avx2 support. I'll fix the build and provide a new bin tomorrow.

Also please provide debug information like shell output and backtraces or I can't help.
