@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:

Sorry my bad, I forgot I still had -O3 in my CXXFLAGS from testing another program. I recompiled with -O2 like normal and it works. Thanks for the patch!

@gearshift :(
I checked and I can access just fine to Gmail for instance. Can you try disabling all addons and try again? Maybe your issue is with Spyblock or LibreJS addons...

Thanks @figue but unfortunately I'm still getting SEC_ERROR_OCSP_SERVER_ERROR. Maybe the Fedora people did something different?

They also fixed this bug along side the first patch in their release so it might be worth it to try it too.

@gearshift thanks. Just pushed a new release. Can you try?

I'm having the same issue that others have mentioned in this thread:
https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=222513

It looks like there's a simple fix by applying this very small change. Could you please include it?

Hi chftyrol,
I usually use "makepkg -sicC" to build my packages, so I've never that problem. Anyway, it doesn't hurt, so -p added to mkdir.
Thanks.

Hi, correct me if I'm wrong but I believe at line 69 of this PKGBUILD the mkdir command is missing the -p option.
Without it upgrading the package (from an existing installation) fails in the prepare phase, because the $srcdir/path directory already exists.
Thank you.

Hey @figue,I compile icecat either using pacaur or the classic abs/makepkg way. The outcome is the same. I never had this problem before though. Your PKGBUILD usually works like a charm.

It definitely has something to do with the permissions. When I reset them icecat works indeed. Why the permissions aren't set correctly this time is beyond me. I'll re-compile and install icecat and check again tomorrow.

Thanks a bunch!

Hi @cert38,

are you compiling IceCat or using some third party package? Because:

[5.3.1]figue@pluto:~> ls -ld /usr/lib/icecat
drwxr-xr-x 6 root root 4096 ene 8 16:47 /usr/lib/icecat

And about the second issue, could be related to the first? I've never get that...

You can try using icecat-bin in AUR instead...

cert38 commented on 2017-01-18 19:26

I'm installing icecat through pacaur.

First I had to change the permission on /usr/lib/icecat/, which was only 750 after the installation.

But now I get the following error message when I try to fire icecat up:
"Could not find the GNU runtime."

At first glance I can't see what's missing though.

ldd /usr/bin/icecat
