[Solved] Can I somehow set makepkg to not compress the package?

It takes to long to compress big aur's packages. And it is not needed at all because after the install I woun't need tha package file anymore.
Can I somehow set it to make tar archives or somehow lower the compressing level?

Also note that you can override this on a per package basis by (re)definining PKGEXT right in the PKGBUILD.

I would recommend setting in makepkg.conf something like this:

PKGEXT=${PKGEXT:-'.pkg.tar.xz'}

then when you don't want compression, you just

PKGEXT=.tar makepkg

And if you almost always don't want compression, you can set an alias: alias makepkg='PKGEXT=.tar makepkg' (use \makepkg to skip the alias).
