I wonder what is so special about the sources of libtd that it takes literally almost an hour on my desktop to compile? All other packages I've encountered compile at most for a couple of minutes in the same environment. Even those that are seemingly more complex in their functionality than just a chat client.

@kovdan01 thanks for the patch. Could you please git send-email the patch to Because I somehow can't git am it from my clipboard.

Hello @j.r ! Please consider using cmake wrappers instead of make commands in PKGBUILD. When a custom CMAKE_GENERATOR environment variable is set, we have to use something like cmake --build . --target all instead of just make. The same applies to make install. I've prepared a patch for that. Would be glad if you apply it using git am to save my credits in commit history. Thanks!

Subject: [PATCH] Use cmake build and install wrappers instead of make ones

In case of custom `CMAKE_GENERATOR` environment variable (e.g. `Ninja`) we
have to use cmake wrappers instead of raw make commands in order to support
different build systems.

Should telegram-tdlib (=${pkgver}) be added to the provides array? For the package libtd-dev that is the case.

@djmattyg007 I updated the package according to cmake package guidelines, but unfortunately upstream somehow added compile tasks to the install target. I think there is not much I can do to avoid compilation in the package step. If you have a solution feel free to send me a patch over at

djmattyg007 commented on 2021-05-01 12:48 (UTC)

I just built the latest version of this package, and I found that compilation was happening inside the package() function. This doesn't seem correct - compilation should be complete once build() is finished.

Okay thank you for the precision ^^

@franck.stauffer I'll remove make, but I explicitly set clang, because according to the libtd build instructions it does consume less RAM during build. For many multiple users the build failed before because they ran out of RAM.
