@altiris you need to import Rubén Rodríguez's GPG key if you want to build IceCat:

gpg --recv-keys 3C76EED7D7E04784

FYI this is a common step described in official wiki:

Hi chftyrol,
I usually use "makepkg -sicC" to build my packages, so I've never that problem. Anyway, it doesn't hurt, so -p added to mkdir.

chftyrol commented on 2017-01-21 10:50

Hi, correct me if I'm wrong but I believe at line 69 of this PKGBUILD the mkdir command is missing the -p option.
Without it upgrading the package (from an existing installation) fails in the prepare phase, because the $srcdir/path directory already exists.
Thank you.

Hey @figue,I compile icecat either using pacaur or the classic abs/makepkg way. The outcome is the same. I never had this problem before though. Your PKGBUILD usually works like a charm.

It definitely has something to do with the permissions. When I reset them icecat works indeed. Why the permissions aren't set correctly this time is beyond me. I'll re-compile and install icecat and check again tomorrow.

Thanks a bunch!

Hi @cert38,

are you compiling IceCat or using some third party package? Because:

[5.3.1]figue@pluto:~> ls -ld /usr/lib/icecat
drwxr-xr-x 6 root root 4096 ene 8 16:47 /usr/lib/icecat

And about the second issue, could be related to the first? I've never get that...

You can try using icecat-bin in AUR instead...

I'm installing icecat through pacaur.

First I had to change the permission on /usr/lib/icecat/, which was only 750 after the installation.

But now I get the following error message when I try to fire icecat up:
"Could not find the GNU runtime."

At first glance I can't see what's missing though.

ldd /usr/bin/icecat (0x00007fffe2fcb000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007fec4d7ca000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007fec4d5c6000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007fec4d23e000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007fec4cf3a000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007fec4cd23000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007fec4c985000)
/lib64/ (0x00007fec4d9e7000)

Thanks @jghodd, build fixed with a new patch.

jghodd commented on 2017-01-15 03:27

there is a bug in the top level configure and in js/src/configure - same bug.

top level configure: line 30308
- the first instance of [space] should be [[space]]

js/src/configure: line 15909
- same thing. the first instance of [space] should be [[space]]

without fixing this, the build throws errors that it's unable to extract the icu version number from uvernum.h and aborts.

I've pushed a new release. I want to test rust code so I've enabled it in mozconfig. Also I've disabled some more configs (I'm not 100% sure if there were already disabled though) and I've switched back to system libs cairo and png. Let me know if something seems wrong.

figue commented on 2016-12-11 23:23

@rohshall maybe a bad dependency download? I've just launched a build with extra-x86_64-build script and all seems ok.

rohshall commented on 2016-12-11 18:16

I get this error:

==> ERROR: 'pacman' failed to install missing dependencies.
