ahoi Kuba

thank you for trying this!

does this mean that you successfully built and installed the following packages?


I just ask this to make sure you did. Those packages are absolutely necessary to be built and installed before trying to build armv7l-unknown-linux-gnueabihf-gcc-stage2. In case you installed those packages pacman should tell you:

$ pacman -Q |grep arm
armv7l-unknown-linux-gnueabihf-binutils 2.24-8
armv7l-unknown-linux-gnueabihf-gcc-stage1 4.9.2-1
armv7l-unknown-linux-gnueabihf-glibc-headers-and-startfiles 2.20-4
armv7l-unknown-linux-gnueabihf-linux-libre-api-headers 3.16.2_gnu-1

this is odd. there shouldn't be any special privileges be required. you should be able to build any of those packages as any unprivileges user. the only command necessary to build any package should be:
$ makepkg
nothing more

could you provide the output of the following three commands please? maybe they reveal some problem due to permissions:
$ ls -ld /home/kzer-za/parabola_workspace
$ ls -ld /home/kzer-za/parabola_workspace/parabola_arm
$ ls -l  /home/kzer-za/parabola_workspace/parabola_arm

don't do that. there is no need to change permissions.

don't do that. when building the package, always start from a clean environment, I mean remove any files and directories some previous attempt might have been created.

that should be good.

again, don't. there is no need to do this as root. Actually doing things as root is dangerous as long as you are not absolutely sure what the commands and scripts do.

maybe this could be a permission issue again?

in case you are at IRC #parabola, we could continue tracking down the issue there :)
