Re: Rust, pkgsrc

Yes. I had a similar problem.  The build would fill up the /tmp/ directory and die from exhausted resources.  I had /tmp/ created with tmpfs and had a constraint of 64M.  The answer for me was to create /tmp in /etc/fstab with tmpfs and no size constraint.  Then Rust would build, but it still took a long time.

The latest rust (1.30?) supporting the latest Firefox is *brutal* to build. I’ve blown (and then resized) /tmp multiple times, and am now exhausted on /usr for its build artifacts, before it’s even actually installed.

Does anybody have tips or tricks for dealing with rust-building (which has always been terribly painful CPU-wise), or should I just move to prebuilt packages? I think I’ve never seen a piece of software as horrible to build as rust...
