Travis Build Status: <img alt="Build Status" src="https://travis-ci.org/bartoszek/AUR-blender-2.8-git.svg?branch=travis" />

Use env vars to control build process:
  • DISABLE_CUDA=1 to skip cuda kernel build (cycles+compositor+optix)
  • DISABLE_NINJA=1 to switch build system to make (default:ninja)
Yay users warning:

Since yay relies solely on aur-rpc to solve dependencies instead of calling makepkg --sync it can't follow dependencies logic defined in PKGBUILD. That's why it's up to the user to provide dependencies to enable features. Optional features includes cuda and optix.

tl;dr; If you want to prebuild cycles kernels, you have to install CUDA beforehand. If you don't have CUDA installed, PKGBUILD will silently skip cycles kernel build, same with the Nvidia Optix support.

Again, thanks. Yes, that is perfect.

@omgold: blender-2.81-git

We have:

  • blender=2.80 in arch/extra
  • blender=2.81 in aur/blender-2.81-git
  • blender=2.82 in aur/bledner-2.8-git and aur/blender-git
  • blender=2.79 in aur/bledner-2.7-git

When blender=2.80 falls off aur/extra I would add aur/blender-2.80-git

Is this scheme satisfying :)

perhaps. I'll rename this package to bledner-2.8x-git for clearness.

omgold commented on 2019-10-22 09:13

Thanks. It should still be useful later, I assume, as it can be adjusted to install other older versions, then.

@omgold: ok, I'll made one but it would be rether short lived PKGBUILD, as in a week blender 2.81 will land in arch/extra repo (after blender con I assume).

omgold commented on 2019-10-22 07:18

I would have a feature request. It would make sense, IMHO, to name the package and the installed files/dirs 2.81/2.82 instead of just *2.8. Currently blender has 3 versions of 2.8x, which people might want to have installed (2.80 stable, 2.81 beta and 2.82 alpha). Also in general it would be a good thing to allow installing multiple versions in parallel (as new versions tend to break old blend files).

@Humar if you are using yay you can run yay --gendb once and use yay -Syu --devel for system updates, instead of plain yay or yay -Syu. yay --gendb command will store hashes of current commits of your -git packages. yay -Syu --devel will check if any of those saved hashes have changed at the repo origin, meaning there is a new commit, then update if they have.

Nvidia optix backend landed in cycles.
  • Requires precompiled cuda kernel (cuda and optix installed)
  • You need a RTX Nvidia GPU.

Intels Open Image Denoise an AI base denoiser just landed in blender compositor.

@bartus: I see, sorry!

I will maintain it myself then.
