Tried that separately and together. Neither worked.

That's quite possibly one of those "running out of resources / memory" errors.

You could try limiting the cores used (mk_add_options MOZ_MAKE_FLAGS="-j4" or even less) or trying to limit memory usage even more with export LDFLAGS+=" -Wl,--no-keep-memory".

Might be something else entirely – but in most cases of "somewhat vague build errors", it seems like it's been a resource issue.

Thanks !

lsf commented on 2021-05-14 00:55

Understood – I'll keep 'em ;)

(I honestly just didn't assume they were needed anymore in the future, but you make a good case – and as long as people are aware of the need to look out for .pacnew files, I see no harm in it :)

je-vv commented on 2021-05-14 00:25

Hi @lsf, pelase do not remove:


See, it's not the same when you just want overwrite some values, which is what including ~/.librewolf/librewolf.overrides.cfg at the end of /usr/lib/librewolf/librewolf.cfg is meant for, than for commenting out some configs from /usr/lib/librewolf/librewolf.cfg, to get the FF default behavior instead.

For example to get safe browsing back, as it works on FF, the best is just comment out the librewolf configs, instead of specifying URLs, and several string values and the like.

I hope you don't remove those backup lines ever, :)

Thanks a lot !

lsf commented on 2021-04-28 13:48

Hm.. good point.

Never had this problem (with this package, at least), so I'd just naively assumed AUR helpers (like paru, in my case) checked for changes to checksums in the .SRCINFO and re-downloaded files accordingly.

To make all this less error prone, it would make sense to follow your hint, I guess, and do it the

# …
  patch -p1 -i ../${pkgver}-${pkgrel}_patch_filename.patch

way in the next release – thanks!

lahwaacz commented on 2021-04-28 13:38

@lsf Caching sources is a makepkg feature. The names of the patches in this PKGBUILD are not unique and do not even depend on $pkgver, which causes these failures. See the warning in

lsf commented on 2021-04-28 13:29

It looks like Manjaro caches some of the downloaded source files somewhere – I don't know where it does that (or if you've used another AUR helper which does it / maybe even just used makepkg directly somewhere?). Basically you have to make sure that no leftover files from a previous build (like the .patch files for example) are left so the updated files will be downloaded and used instead of the cached ones – which leads to them not passing the checksum validation here (and which would subsequently lead to a failing build later on, probably).

Librewolf fails to build on Manjaro Xfce. If anyone can help or fix this, that would be greatly appreciated.
