Thank you! I will be able to take care of this on Sunday, for the time being, please, consider installing rate-mirrors-bin.

Commenting out export RUSTUP_TOOLCHAIN=nightly appears to resolve the issue.

Building directly from source off of GitHub does work, so must just be a configuration issue with the PKGBUILD.

jghodd, there's a chance that you locally compiled rust, then your libllvm-13 got updated and now you have to recompile your rust to make it working again.

Getting a build error immediately after starting complaining about not finding libLLVM-13. We're now on libLLVM-14. What needs to be changed to correct this.

Thank you! I explicitly set the target dir

The current build script fails when using a custom target directory. Please update the script to procedurally get the target directory path using cargo metadata. Relevant link:

EDIT: Alternatively, explicitly set the target dir to the expected position in accordance with the rust package guidelines

v0.4.0 and forward are here -

"do not run rate-arch-mirrors with root permissions" -- the tool doesn't need root permissions, so it doesn't allow you to run it with sudo. In the next version I'll add an option like "--allow-root"
