Archlinux currently has 3 llvm git implementations

  1. This package

    • It aims to provide a full llvm/clang compiler environment for development purposes.
    • Supports cross-compiling , bindings for external stuff (python, ocaml etc) , and some things not in extra-llvm.
    • intended to be used with archlinux core,extra & community repos
    • CONFLICTS with extra llvm/clang packages
    • binary versions in chaotic aur unofficial repository
  2. llvm-minimal-git

    • focuses on providing stuff needed for AUR mesa-git. Doesn't support cross-compiling or any bindings for external stuff like ocaml & python.
    • intended to be used with archlinux core,extra & community repos
    • compatible with extra llvm/clang packages
    • binary versions in chaotic aur unofficial repository
  3. packages created & maintained by Lordheavy, an arch developer

    • intended to be used with archlinux testing repos
    • sometimes has problems on systems where testing repos are disabled
    • uses same package structure as llvm/clang in official repos
    • source
    • binary versions in LordHeavys unoffical repo

I've looked good at clang-trunk , llvm-svn, repo llvm/clang packages and think this package is now on route to become a worthy successor to llvm-svn .

  • llvm-libs-git holds the runtime libraries.

    It conflicts with the repo llvm-libs package. This is the only way to make sure the llvm linker from git is used, and that's needed for a full dev environment.

  • llvm-git

    has llvm , clang, compiler-rt, ocaml & python bindings, polly , lld , lldb .

The Package now uses a new environment variable to make ninja behave, NINJAFLAGS. If you want to use it adjust the snippet below to your desired values and add it to makepkg.conf.

Incase you are satisfied with ninja defaults you don't need to do anything.

# Add to makepkg.conf
# limit ninja to 20 jobs
# requires special code in PKGBUILD
# see ninja --help for additonal options

The check() function fails rather often, but I do suggest to build with them. If build fails due to test failure you can add --nocheck to skip the tests.

Any luck with it?

The python2.7 dir does not get created in the build directory with the bindings/libraries, thus both operations fail.

Thanks for letting me know.

I don't understand exactly what is going wrong. Do you mean to say that the python2.7 dir does not get created in the build directory during the compilation of lldb? Or is it that the users's filesystem does not have the python2.7 directories?

Package fails to build. No python2.7 dir gets created/exists.
Problematic lines :
# Install the lldb python libraries.
cp --recursive --preserve=mode --no-preserve=ownership,timestamps python2.7/ "$pkgdir/usr/lib/"
# Relink the
ln -sf '../../../llvm/' "$pkgdir/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/lldb/"

Go ahead and update it. I disowned it.

Desperately needs an svn revision update. There's a horrible crash on a pure virtual function call on any attempt at using C++11's std::thread.

Alright, I was not sure how to approach this. I will take a look and post an updated PKGBUILD. Thanks!

Btw, you might have a look at the new makepkg's goodness for svn packages:

mmm commented on 2013-04-02 12:49

would it be possible to somewhat reduce the svn-checkout and resulting build size?
llvm-svn has 1.3GB instead of 82MB for llvm..

Updated with suggestions from lordheavy.
I had some issues with the license length limitation (40 chars) in the upload script on the AUR. The license is custom:University of Illinois/NCSA Open Source License.
