For the people not willing to download 500MB of chromium source to build this package:

You can install it from my repo: https://repo.herecura.eu

Note: When the version here in AUR updates you should keep in mind it can take up to 30 minutes until its available in my repo.

If you are using an AUR helper you must make sure you have enough space where the helper wants to build. If your helper uses /tmp or something you are very likely to run out of "diskspace" while building this package.

@Musikolo Ah, I get it now. Thanks, those are valid points.

Hi @SeerLite,

I personally find at least the following 2 benefits in using packages:

  • Package is integrated with pacman, so all files are much better managed this way
  • Package gets installed once, and all users can enjoy the same software.

I hope it helps!

@BlackIkeEagle I see. Thanks, I didn't know about the environment variable.

Is there any advantage in using a package (like this one) as opposed to using Vivaldi's built-in solution?

@SeerLite if no usefull ffmpeg package is found that is indeed what happens

If you really don't want that you can disable this behaviour by adding

VIVALDI_FFMPEG_AUTO=0

in your environment to disable auto downloading of ffmpeg codecs

Latest Vivaldi versions install their ffmpeg codecs in ~/.local/lib/vivaldi/media-codecs-x.x.x.x/ on their second restart, or that's what I understood. Can anyone confirm?

Vivaldi just updated it's major version. Changing _vivaldi_major_version=2.11 to _vivaldi_major_version=3.0 in the PKGBUILD will work, or just do sudo mv /opt/vivaldi/libffmpeg.so.2.11 /opt/vivaldi/libffmpeg.so.3.0

@Dheart because that is the only way to be able to consistently build it. Our google friends don't care about gcc or upstream clang in the chromium project and their build breaks in misterious ways if you are trying to build outside the path they have defined. Also I don't want to be fixing these stupid issues all the time so I'm just using their toolchain to make my life easier.

Dheart commented on 2020-04-01 00:11

Why does this use google's clang, instead of the default in arch?

Thanks for adding it to your repository. :)

@hringriin

Because compilation by default happens in /tmp/ if you try to install the package using yaourt. /tmp maps to half of your ram by default and probably your system is running out of memory and trashing.

Try manually cloning in your home and compiling.
