Some notes:

  • Prefer yay/aurman instead of yaourt/pacaur.
  • Gclient has to download the whole V8 repo, it takes some time to complete (depending on your internet connection).
  • This package requires around 3/4 gigs of space so be sure to have a large enough /tmp partition if you use yaourt, also be aware that aurman/yay/pacaur will save this package in ~/.cache/(aurman|yay|pacaur)/v8, so be sure to have a /home partition with enough space.
  • The build and testing process takes some time, I recommend to use at least a 4 cores with 8 threads cpu, better an 8 cores 16 threads cpu.
  • If you have at least 32GB of RAM you can use a ram partition to speed up the build process (yaourt uses /tmp by default).

Thanks for your response. That's too bad!

Do you know how to solve it?

marcs commented on 2016-03-08 14:26

I know, my automated builds are failing for quite some time now.

Probably related to glibc:

pacman -Qo /usr/lib64/crti.o
/usr/lib/crti.o is owned by glibc 2.23-1

This might be broken now.

I had this same issue - but I was missing clang-tool-extra, like marcs said. I installed it, but when I tried to build again, it failed again. Came back after restarting the next chance I got and everything worked. Maybe a restart would help? I cant say for sure, but it was the only thing that I can think of that changed for me.

Hope it helps!

Sorry about the long text. Checked, but clang-tools-extra was already installed for the try below, as it is in makedepends.

Hi omangold,

Looks like you are missing the package: clang-tools-extra, please check.
And please use pastebin for such a long build text, thanks.

omgold commented on 2015-12-08 11:22

I get the build error below. Any ideas?

eugeneai commented on 2015-12-05 07:51

clang-tools-extra must be added to build dependencies.

marcs commented on 2015-12-02 01:26

I lost so much time in the building process that I didn't tested the package at all.
Fixed now.

Also added $* to the sh script so it can send arguments to the d8 executable.

the last v8 need natives_blob.bin,
or it will get "Segmentation fault (core dumped)"
a fix is here:
