I've got this error when building version 93.0-1 in a clean chroot:

Crash Annotation GraphicsCriticalError: |[0][GFX1-]: glxtest: libpci missing (t=0.445181) [GFX1-]: glxtest: libpci missing

Edit: oh, wait – somehow the build continues...

@Domarius: You're having a problem because you're attempting to compile a web browser from source, which even people that use Gentoo, a source based distribution, are reluctant to do.

I highly recommend seeking out *-bin versions of any browser you want unless you absolutely need to compile it yourself

Ok, I sat through the Waterfox installation and it was the same thing, but at the end it cleaned up after itself and I got all my space back. I've never seen this kind of long-ass space consuming build for AUR packages before, but perhaps I'm still new to all this. Giving it another go.

Domarius commented on 2021-09-16 02:41

Absolutely insane... I was shocked to see the build was still running after nearly 1 hour, and my space was being eaten up. /var/tmp/pamac-build-domarius/librewolf was taking up 10gb, and still wasn't finished. What the heck is going on here?? I've cancelled the install, deleted that folder, and trying librewolf-bin, or maybe even another browser...

rustup install stable
rustup default stable

This but as root, if you have a bad installation.

madjoe commented on 2021-07-24 16:51

This error is caused due to a bad rustup installation (unknown reason).

To fix it type:

rustup install stable
rustup default stable

But unfortunately, even after I fixed this issue, I still couldn't install it on my system since it made my root partition run out of space (even though I still had 16GB available!). I ended up installing librewolf-bin instead.

I tried building in a clean chroot with buildpkg -cp <folder with PKGBUILD> (I'm on Manjaro) and without the throttling you suggested I do previously. I got the same error.

Thanks for the help so far.

Hm, I can only imagine some environment variable for rustup usage messes things up / causes rustup to be called (by default it's not used / needed during the build process, only rust is needed as a package). You could check for something like this, or try it in a clean chroot ( )

When trying to install on my KDE Plasma, I encountered this error:

Hi, please add some patches from firefox-appmenu to this package to be more friendly with KDE plasma.
