  1. rust will change source package (mostly cargo) without changing file name during minor version update. If the source failed to pass sha256sum check, remove it and try again. If it fails again, please flag this package out-of-date.
  2. Exception handling will be disabled when using sjlj version of GCC (i686-w64-mingw32 toolchain in mingw-w64-gcc).
  3. to use this, you should add /opt/rust/bin to PATH, and set CARGO_HOME to /opt/rust/cargo.

I'm having issue using it, rustc segfault:

PATH=/opt/rust/bin:$PATH CARGO_HOME=/opt/rust/cargo rustc --help

[1]    453672 segmentation fault (core dumped)  PATH=/opt/rust/bin:$PATH CARGO_HOME=/opt/rust/cargo rustc --help

@marmistrz I was able to get it working (at least for my needs) by telling my build script to set PATH and CARGO_HOME for itself, rather than setting it universally in my shell profiles. Maybe try that?

EDIT: Oh, you were asking specifically about system-wide cargo. Nevermind.

Currently the checksum for is wrong

FWIW copying crt2.o and friends is no longer necessary as of 1.43 because of this change:

@mati865, I've already added it to the wiki. The command is for rustup, but it can be easily modified to work with this package. You may also need libmsvcrt.a

mingw-w64-rust-bin can not build executable with 6.0+ version of mingw-w64-crt, but library building works (for example mingw-w64-librsvg).

This can be fixed by replacing Rust shipped crt2.o and dllcrt2.o with the system ones.

Please add to the pinned comment the information that in order to use the package for cross compiling, one has to either (a) add /opt/rust/bin to PATH or (b) add /opt/rust/lib to LD_LIBRARY_PATH

EDIT: (b) is not true. Is there any way of using the cross target with system-wide cargo (without changing PATH)?

Is this package still being maintained? The issue pointed out by lantw44 still exists.

It seems that the file cargo-0.30.0-x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu.tar.gz was changed ...

remove version check for MinGW now, but you should read the pinned comment first before installing this package
