Please note that a debug option is disabled in this package.

To disable building the docs package, set an env: _disable_docs=y

To enable the check() process, set an env: _enable_check=y

If the building process is getting failed on check() like

83/114 mutter:core+mutter/backends/native / native-unit TIMEOUT 180.01s killed by signal 15 SIGTERM

then you might want to do one of these:

0) Unset an env: _enable_check=y

1) Kill your pipewire session manager; killall $(pacman -Qq pipewire-session-manager).

2) Reboot the machine.

3) Pass a variable --nocheck to makepkg (which can be passed along with --mflags first if you are using paru) to temporarily disable a check() process.

4) Add a line options=(!check) to the package's PKGBUILD file to disable a check() process.

And try again.

@NettoHikari or anyone unable to compile with the following error:

lto1: internal compiler error: bytecode stream: expected tag identifier_node instead of LTO_UNKNOWN

You need to rebuild sysprof and then try again.

If you are getting errors like fatal: bad revision '73e8cf32' while building this package, refer to PKGBUILD and see which patches caused this. Then, go to the related URLs, replace the commit hashes. If there are conflicts, comment out the patches.

Please notify me in comment section if this happens.

The optional performance patches are by default enabled.

@intelfx You can edit the sources in PKGBUILD and make a git commit.

@Dawdleming I build them for my repository and switch between them on every minor release to assess the benefit of the performance patches.

@intelfx Building both mutter and mutter-performance is a quite rare case. Why do you do that?

Changing name of the git repo makes the original git repo (mutter-performance) abandoned, so it shouldn't be done unless most of people agree.

intelfx commented on 2024-02-14 01:14 (UTC)

Please don't set name of the git repo you clone to $pkgname. It is completely pointless (because git knows what revision it's at) it breaks sharing of source files between mutter and mutter-performance for those people who have shared $SRCDEST.

@NGStaph Done.

NGStaph commented on 2024-01-15 05:19 (UTC)

consider adding #3304

Dawdleming commented on 2024-01-11 13:25 (UTC)

@ewout not available in stable branch (45) yet. Tho I will try cherry-picking it later.

ewout commented on 2023-12-13 13:02 (UTC)

Consider including MR !3448 if possible.
