Ok, I'm getting the memory limit error, I have 32G ram, another 11G zram. So based on what I've read from other comments, I may have to up that zram to 100G

(yes upping zram did the trick, it took at least 45G for this program to compile without error)

I fixed a previous error by adding the 'mailcap' dependency which wasn't listed in the PKGBUILD but definitely should be

Progress. Increased /swapfile from 16G to 64G and was able to compile. (Also this time logged out from kde and compiled in text only tty5.) Took like 1h... but got it done. Pffff.

I was able to build the 126.0 from here ... 🤣

I never could build it with 32GB, only saw success with 64GB+ systems.

any hints, how to limit the memory gobbling, so it doesn't fill entire memory, so it doesn't get automatically killed?

@BryanLiang thanks, pushed a fix with that patch. Unfortunately, I can't include the patch on AUR as it exceeds AUR's max file size limit (~488KiB) so it'll have to be downloaded from Gitlab.

I built fail in clean chroot, here is the build log:

It seem that it needs a patch:

Adopted package and updated to 125.0.3. Wayland proxy patches have been dropped as they have been upstreamed, and PGO seems to work correctly once again.

dcelasun commented on 2024-03-11 11:05 (UTC)

wayland-proxy patches are no longer needed as of Firefox 123.
