@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:

@colinkeenan download sources manually, your closest mirror isn't updated yet. In my case my mirror is:

Update: after compiling again, it works (because now it's looking for which exists instead of ...4). Since it doesn't look like you'll be doing a release for this, I set pkgrel=3.1 because I'm uploading to archlinuxcn repo and want to trigger upgrade for others.

With today's updates, I'm also getting "XPCOMGlueLoad error for file /usr/lib/icecat/ cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory Couldn't load XPCOM."

I have not tried compiling it again yet. I will update after that.

@EndUserOnly you marked IceCat as out-of-date:

Could not load XPCOM. Arch must have done away with it.

You mean IceCat fails to start on your machine? It works for me... Did you try to recompile?

@oldgaro you mean during make?

Tried thrice...and every install this script makes my CPU go full horsepower and freeze the system!

@figue, thank you for the explanation, clear.

figue commented on 2017-09-19 19:02

@vasya it's explained in this bug:

Firefox and Thunderbird in [extra] were already patched.

vasya commented on 2017-09-19 16:26

@figue, can you please explain, why did icecat need patching in the last AUR commit?:

shudouken commented on 2017-08-17 14:23

@figue Thanks!

I also created dummy files in place of the extensions and set them to immutable to prevent updates from reinstalling them.
