I solved my problem by copying over pacman.conf-pacnew to pacman.conf.

I tried to follow the directions here:

I thought I was pretty good w/ copy/paste and decided maybe I was not. So I ran across this package and running into the same issue of it bombing out with a million warnings and nothing getting installed:

@ProfessorKaos64 arch-bootstrap will not build any packages. It will perform a part of the installation of a new ArchLinux system in a bootstrap directory (which later would be the root filesystem of the new system). For this purpose, it will download an earlier prepared minimum set of packages, from a given URL. This package clean-chroot-manager can be used to build packages (on an existing ArchLinux system) which will be used for a subsequent installation of a new system, or (most likely) upgrades. You could use these two packages together to create your own fork of ArchLinux if you were really keen

(I know it is almost a year after the question was asked, but perhaps someone will find this answer useful)

How does this compare to ?

I will check into this... I use ccm all the time on my i7-4790 (9 threads) and see all 8 cores used up. Isn't the default values for MAKEFLAGS 2? Is the bug causing it to use /etc/makepkg.conf on the live filesystem or the default one installed by pacman?

@graysky many thanks for providing this package. I think it had been broken by change in devtools , perhaps this one , which results in makechrootpkg removing MAKEFLAGS set in root/etc/makepkg.conf . The result of this is that THREADS set in ~/.config/clean-chroot-manager.conf is ignored. The working workaround is hinted at in comments to #44827 , which is to create/update ~/.makepkg.conf like this:

I would suggest that, given the availability of a workaround, the proper fix would be to entirely remove THREADS from ~/.config/clean-chroot-manager.conf and scripts, and instead advice user to create/update ~/.makepkg.conf with MAKEFLAGS option.

@graysky: Thanks for your reply. :)

I'm compiling firefox-kde; this package does take a lot of time to build, by tweaking makepkg.conf, adding ccache (although I understand it doesn't work), I hope to improve the build time.

The package I'm using (kmozillahelper) doesn't have Python2/3 as makedeps, so I just installed it manually to the chroot by using the arch-nspawn command.
You are correct this should be corrected in PKGBUILD, but sometimes you may want to install additional packages without having to modify the PKG. :P

graysky commented on 2016-04-03 15:28

CCM doesn't support ccache[1] to the best of my knowledge. You can execute commands within the chroot if you wish and the syntax you proposed is correct. I will consider adding it to the man page. What are you needing to do within the chroot? I'd like to provide an example or 2 but can't really think of anything...


francoism90 commented on 2016-04-03 15:14

Hi graysky,

Thanks for providing this chroot manager. :)

Few requests/questions:
- Is it useful to add ccache/--threads=0 inside /chroot/path/etc/makepkg.conf?
- If I understand correctly, commands in the chroot should be execute like so: sudo arch-nspawn /path/to/chroot64/root <command>
If so, could you add it to the readme please. :)

Many thanks!

Thanks for reporting. If you don't have a github account, get one (free) as it makes bug tracking better and doesn't pollute the AUR with bug reports.
