I ran into an issue with UI scaling after upgrading to all the icons were huge. I fixed this by going to "Help" -> "Edit Custom VM Options..." and adding -Dhidpi=false. Maybe this will help someone.

@stefan65 you can change builddir to place with more space, for example: echo "BUILDDIR=/var/tmp/makepkg" >> ~/.config/pacman/makepkg.conf

Is there any chance of improving the installation procedure when running a system with 8 GB (or less) of RAM?

I only have 8 GB of RAM in my system and therefore /tmp is 4 GB big. When installing updates for the android-studio package, this leads to a failure if I do not delete the downloaded ZIP file after unzipping and the unzipped folder when starting package compression.

@KyronNextLevel Isn't fakeroot part of base-devel?

These packages shouldn't be included as dependencies for aur packages according to wiki. Am I right?

A dependency is missing for the last manjaro. I had to manually install fakeroot.

@Anty0 @Pryka Thanks I will try out symlink as my machine only has 8 GB of RAM. I tried to resize my tmp folder but when I rebooted I had a whole bunch of issues when booting up.

@racks I had this problem too. I used to symlink Android Studio SDK Manager's folder outside of the tmp folder, because I didn't have enough ram to just resize tmp.

I did.

android-studio heavily use /tmp/ which is tmpfs in Arch. And by default its half of your RAM. In some cases that can be not enough.

You can temporarily resize /tmpfs by "mount -o remount,size=16G,noatime /tmp"

Where size= is your desired size. It will come back to default after a reboot. Also, it shouldn't be more than your RAM size. Probably also not your max, cause you can end with OOM easily.

Anyone had issues with their tmp folder being too small?

I know that most user would prefer pre-compiled version, but the point is, if there is a version that build from source in AUR, it is possible to include it in community repository. Look at intellij-idea-community-edition for example, user don't have to actually compile it. Binary package like intellij-idea-ce will never be in Community repository.
