@damentz: Done. :)

@sir_lucjan, can you revert the change? Per the wiki, we shouldn't be override user configured MAKEFLAGS.

disastro commented on 2016-05-03 02:25

makepkg.conf :/

And like the wiki says, the only reason to override that should be -j1 for race conditions. num_cores is just wrong and overriding user preference and ${MAKEFLAGS} is unnecessary.

I'm not too familiar with makepkg, I just started using Arch seriously on a laptop of mine and wanted the build to use all the cores. If you know a better way of doing it, feel free to submit a patch to @sir_lucjan. The ${MAKEFLAGS} would be ideal since we don't need to modify the make command.

disastro commented on 2016-05-03 01:31

Why is -j being set? That's what MAKEFLAGS is for...

EDIT: And I hadn't even noticed before that ${MAKEFLAGS} was being passed too, even though makepkg already does that. :/

@sir_lucjan, I believe the build bug is fixed. It was due to a stable patch that changes quite a bit about how the SCHEDSTATS config option works and requires some serious porting. For now, when selecting BFS, CONFIG_SCHEDSTATS turns off. I'll remove this workaround in v4.6 when Con ports it officially.

@eeleater, awesome! We merged a change to the PKGBUILD that tries to get the total number of cores on your system and use that as the job parameter during the various make commands. The more cores you have the faster you will build.

That compiled real fast now :D

Could you check ;)?

Uploaded a new patch that reverts the 'wastedcores' patch set, marked this package as out-of-date. Basically, this patch set improved efficiency on large systems, but didn't provide any measurable benefit to regular and small systems, and had the side effect of breaking BFS builds.

So, any word on a fix out there for those of us that build with BFS?
