Just a heads-up that there's a typo in Zstd.cpp's code that prevents building.

<   zstdThrowIfError(ZSTD_CCtxParams_setParameter(params_.get(), param, value));
>   zstdThrowIfError(ZSTD_CCtxParam_setParameter(params_.get(), param, value));

The first line is corrected. The second is the original. Might need a patch...

This package installs to /usr/local. According to, "All Arch Linux packages should use the /usr directory."

@VOID001 Hi, it seems that was not updated for about 2 years. Currently, folly's CMake (previously autoconf) does not generate libfolly.pc for me. Do you have a reliable way to fix?

@ftiasch Hi, could you please include folly.pc file and install it to pkg-config dir? some packages depends on libfolly needs .pc file to resolve deps , such as facebook oomd. Thanks

This breaks since GCC 7 was adopted by Arch.

- Install gcc5 from repo
- export CC=gcc-5
export CXX=g++-5

Build Folly as usual

folly fails to compile with OpenSSL 1.1.0.

Looking at
Consider making openssl-1.0 a dependency and compile using that.

Just copy these before the configure call

CFLAGS+=" -I/usr/include/openssl-1.0" \
CPPFLAGS+=" -I/usr/include/openssl-1.0" \
LDFLAGS+=" -L/usr/lib/openssl-1.0" \

See for example

Worked for me!

I'm getting build errors too.

I 've got such error after installation:
ld /usr/lib/
ld: warning: cannot find entry symbol _start; not setting start address
/usr/lib/ undefined reference to `boost::re_detail_106300::cpp_regex_traits_implementation<char>::transform(char const*, char const*) const'
/usr/lib/ undefined reference to `boost::re_detail_106300::cpp_regex_traits_implementation<char>::transform_primary(char const*, char const*) const'

I couldn't compile fbthrift due to this error.
Looks like a problem with the last version of boost.

Sorry, just fixed build errors.
