I'll also enable the experimental Wayland support while at it :)

@thingsGoWrong: check your `/etc/makepkg.conf`, specifically `MAKEFLAGS`. I'm guessing you're overriding it to `-j1` (or unsetting it? `make` defaults to single-threaded if you unset `MAKEFLAGS`)

That said, there's not really a good reason to still use `make` in this century; I based this PKGBUILD on the one from `renderdoc`, but I'll update it now to use `ninja` instead, which doesn't rely on flags but instead auto-detects the number of cores.

Why is it building using only 1 core in 2020? Should default to all cores. Please fix.

@Strunkenbold: Hey!

Thanks for reporting Baldur's remark back to me. I indeed messed up by copying that flag to this package without understanding it, and may have caused him unnecessary trouble as a result.

This is fixed now, and I bumped the pkgver & pkgrel to make sure everyone has to rebuild the package with the correct flags.

Sorry about that :/

Hello, for some weeks now, the package failed to build.

I opened now a upstream bug and it got fixed within an hour. BUT, the author mentions that this package is broken, maybe someone with a little bit more experience could take a look:

@1ace A missing makedependence "cmake"

Change OFF to ON in


on line 38 of the pkgbuild and add



'qmake "CONFIG+=release" "DESTDIR=${srcdir}/renderdoc/build/bin" .'

on line 44 to get it to build properly.

Doesn't build for me either. I receive essentially the same error as @salviati showed in the previous post.

Build fails with the following error:

The package needs a couple of updates:

* For proper Vulkan support, renderdoc.json must be placed in /usr/share/vulkan/implicit_layer.d/. [1]
* qrenderdoc is now in preview form and builds successfully. [2] While it's not fully-featured yet, it does work, and it's the only GUI available for Linux. Perhaps it should be enabled.
