@bgamari bgamari commented Oct 20, 2020

Motivation for this change

FreeCAD is a large package which takes quite a while to build, even with parallelism. I have never had any trouble building it with paralellism enabled.

Things done
  • Tested using sandboxing (nix.useSandbox on NixOS, or option sandbox in nix.conf on non-NixOS linux)
  • Built on platform(s)
    • NixOS
    • macOS
    • other Linux distributions
  • Tested via one or more NixOS test(s) if existing and applicable for the change (look inside nixos/tests)
  • Tested compilation of all pkgs that depend on this change using nix-shell -p nixpkgs-review --run "nixpkgs-review wip"
  • Tested execution of all binary files (usually in ./result/bin/)
  • Determined the impact on package closure size (by running nix path-info -S before and after)
  • Ensured that relevant documentation is up to date
  • Fits

Isn't parallel building enabled by default?

Ahh, it appears that it is enabled by default when cmake is in use. Cheers!
