@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:

@archmaniac fakeroot messages are only "unwanted output", see this bug: https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/49278

Indeed, before building big packages like IceCat, a system upgrade is very recommended. Or, use any chroot helper (like scripts provided in devtools package) that maintain a clean and upgraded environment to build packages.

Enjoy your new cold cat :)

Yeah, sorry for the less information. I tried to build it with yaourt and makepkg. At the end the error appears.

==> Entering fakeroot environment...

There was a problem with fakeroot. So I did a system upgrade and compiled it again. Now it works fine.

@archmaniac you should paste more information, with that is impossible to know what is causing your error.

hey, i got an error while compiling.

@EndUserOnly ok, thanks for the tip. I haven't used grsec for years, but I will remember. Do you figure out why exactly compilation fails in grsec?

EndUserOnly commented on 2016-08-05 06:49

Will not compile in grsec kernel. When compiled against standard kernel, will not run in grsec kernel. Thanks anyway.

Help!

Works fine, thank you!

Done. You should be able to use gstreamer now.
