I've made some checks and lowered "security.sandbox.content.level" to 1 (default is 4). Perhaps a bit better approach, instead of disabling completely sandbox.

@Terrorizer patch process can take a long time, depending on your machine capacity.

Good news is that IceCat was added to Chaotic repo recently:

@mjachkie in fact, you can. Try to set these variables (replacing es-ES with your desired locale):

env _LOCALE=es-ES _SPEED=y makepkg -rsic

Wish I could have chosen what languages not to install; the downloading would be done in less minutes.

@figue Works well thank you!

@cysp74 I don't know, but package is OK hahaha ;)

cysp74 commented on 2021-04-23 10:40

@figue: Looks like the permission issue is came from pkg directory as outcome of PKGBUILD placed on FS with ACL. Strange thing is, there are other packages (eg. wine-staging-git) build regularly on same fs without any hassle. I checked the differences between PKGBUILD files, but didn't come up anything. However permissions on pkg directory of eg. wine-staging-git doesn't inherited into compressed package only in icecat.

@cysp74 All permissions are OK on my system...

@figue: Compilation passed w/ new patch on my end. - just a sidenote... :) Permission issue still exists.

figue commented on 2021-04-21 14:48

@Ningen see 9f7712c17cd7

I could write a patch to use perl-rename from [extra]... Will try to push it upstream (I'm not sure if it will be accepted).

figue commented on 2021-04-21 10:43

@Ningen there are different packages. Nothing I can do. Maybe if you have time you can make a pull request upstream to detect perl-rename in extra and use it. It should not be complicated. If I remember well, now makeicecat has functions for this stuff.

Already updated to 78.10.0. See 9ff2ae5af0c6
