Works fine, thank you!

Done. You should be able to use gstreamer now.

figue commented on 2016-06-28 07:20

Yeah... the correct option is "ac_add_options --enable-gstreamer=1.0" I think. Rebuilding right now.

Strange enough, I recompiled icecat and still have h264 support disabled according youtube test page. Is it works for you ? I disabled librejs ofc.

Update to 38.8.0-gnu2.

@abi thanks, gstreamer enabled again. I was trying a lot of things to release v38.8 and I've merged some options in mozconfig from Firefox in official repos.

I've noticed that h264 was disabled during recent upgrade. Why ? 38 still uses gstreamer.

Thanks, it built successfully.

Hi @ammonaur, like always, please, rebuild the package to fix hunspell dependency.

ammonaur commented on 2016-06-21 18:33

The new hunspell package (version 1.4+) breaks IceCat's dependence on

Finally I've uploaded 38.8.0. There are a couple of things YOU HAVE TO DO:

A) As I said in my last comment, gcc6 is not supported yet, either make 4.2 (in testing actually). So if you want to build in a [testing] Archlinux do this:
* abs testing/make and add the following patch [1] and build it (see [2]).
* Or you can download PKGBUILD and patch here:
* Build make.
* Then build IceCat. Should work.

B) If you want to build IceCat with gcc5:
* Use PKGBUILD.gcc5 file instead of PKGBUILD. Maybe you have to patch make (I didn't test this situation)

Sorry for the inconvenience...

FYI: some patches are from Thunderbird package:

[2] Make bug:
