@matoro ok, in Spain we said: "it happens even in the best of families" :)

@figue Problem was between keyboard and chair, I rebuilt icecat and then upgraded icu when it should have been the other way around. Thanks!

@matoro I don't know what's wrong, but I'm running IceCat with icu 57.1-1 without issues. Check my repo if you want, this binary is built with icu 57.1:

Do it again, delete src and pkg directories, old pkg too, and makepkg again. Should work.

As far as I can tell aur/icecat-38.7.1-1 is incompatible with extra/icu-57.1-1
I had to downgrade to extra/icu-56.1-2 to get it to work. If anyone figures out a fix (I've already tried rebuilding once) please share.

I just built 38.7.1, and it still wants the 56.1 icu library:

XPCOMGlueLoad error for file /usr/lib/icecat/ cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Couldn't load XPCOM.

Is upstream compatible with icu 57?

Update: Somehow the package didn't get ugraded. The newest build seems to work fine with icu 57.

@ammonaur just build 38.7.1. I forgot to update .SRCINFO before...

Icecat fails to run with icu 57.1-1 from testing. Could you add icu<=56.1-2 to the dependencies?

@superpacman sorry for my late answer, but with that tiny information is impossible to know what happened.

Try to built it in a clean chroot (for instance with extra-x86_64-build, included in devtools package).

I receive this error : recipe for target 'build' failed
make: *** [build] Error 2
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().
==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build icecat.

@martynjy it's explained a few times, for instance in comment "2015-11-29 21:10"
