Hey hey,
is there a simple, systematic option to set make options for building AUR
packages, that are compiled on the local system? I know that I can edit the
PKGBUILD file for each package, but I'd prefer something global. My goal is to
build using multiple jobs (-j option for make).

I searched options and environment variables for aurget and makepkg, without
result.

TIA and best wishes,

Jeanette

Hello,

Isn’t this what makepkg.conf is for? You can specify all the make options you’d want in there.
Best,
Zack.

Thanks, that was the only place I didn't look being discouraged by the
manpage for makepkg. :)

Yeah,

`man makepkg.conf` for more info.

You can either set it globally in /etc/makepkg.conf or locally in .makepkg.conf.

Best,
David

Thanks David, once I glommed onto it, it was easy. It was just very
remiss of me, giving up too early. :(

Best wishes,

Every now and then a pacman upgrade installs a makepkg.conf.pacnew, so
it's useful to take a look at it and to adapt the changes to the
customised settings.

I'm using "meld" to do this. It's a GUI providing a diff and you could
use the GUI as an editor to adapt the changes while displaying the diff.

I don't know if there is something that comfortable, that could be used
with Braille, too.

(
) My goal is to build using multiple jobs (-j option for make).
Consider -l instead of -j, with -j being used only to limit the number
of subprocesses -l could spawn. For example:

make -l 4 -j 100 


This will ensure make’s load is approximately 4. The additional `-j
some_bigger_number` is required to avoid creating excessive number of
subprocesses.
