Thanks for the suggestion. Which issues does that fork fix, though? Why should we switch? I'd like to stay as close as possible to the original thing, unless there are strong reasons to use another version.

Please use fries1234's fork: PKGBUILD

P.S. The 'flatpak3' could be removed from the meson.build and pkgver, but I was too lazy.

Added "-fcommon", because GCC 10 flipped this option's default (https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Gcc_10_porting_notes/fno_common). Should build now.

Does not build.

Builds fine if you change lesstif to openmotif in the PKGBUILD, FYI.

topher1kenobe: most likely, whichever AUR helper program you ran does not understand the pkgver() function. You can install manually by finding the ncsa-mosaic-git-*.pkg.tar.xz file and running pacman -U on it.

This builds fine for me, but then after asking my passwd it says this: loading packages... error: 'ncsa-mosaic-git-2.7b6.r25.gaf942b9-1*.pkg.tar.xz': could not find or read package

Updated, thanks.

Some cleanups for pacman 4.1: http://sprunge.us/YTBM

Updated, thanks.

Here's a new PKGBUILD that includes an icon for Mosaic: http://home.arcor.de/mdoege/aur/ncsa-mosaic-git-20130126-1.src.tar.gz

Updated to work with libpng 1.5. People may also be interested in Mosaic-CK and VMS Mosaic, which have significant improvements over the original.

@cowlitzron : feel free to adopt it and make it build. I take it because it was history.

commented on 2012-03-13 01:16 (UTC)

It failed to build when I tried to.

FredBezies commented on 2011-12-09 21:05 (UTC)

Even if it is useless I adopt it ;) For the fun :D
