Deleting a chroot

It's not written in the page so I'll write it here: Just delete the $CHROOT folder (Unless it's btrfs). Tharbad (talk) 03:05, 12 May 2019 (UTC)

Alternative Building Enviroment w/ Docker

I build a Docker container which gives you the primary needed build tools, also some extended basic tools and atm its builds yay from aur automatically.

Take a look at the docker hub

This article describes the tools used by the developers to build packages in the official repositories, not a general methodology to build packages in a seperate environment. -- Alad (talk) 12:02, 4 July 2019 (UTC)

Build in tmpfs

The mount command has some wrong, and needs to be changed to:

# mount -t tmpfs -o defaults,size=20G tmpfs /mnt/chroots/arch

More info needed RE: archbuild

With the semi-recent changes to chroot building and the addition of the archbuild convenience script, using a custom repo within your build chroot is no longer supported. It is therefore required to create (or symlink) a pacman.conf to /usr/share/devtools/pacman-<some_name>.conf, and then run <some_name>-x86_64-build to build packages in a chroot that will have access to your custom repo.

For more background, see this reddit post and this response thread.

Convenience way for AUR packages

The section “Convenience way” does not mention building AUR packages. I guess extra-x86_64-build would work for these, too, or am I wrong? Buzo (talk) 17:39, 12 May 2020 (UTC)
