Upstream recommends having more than 4GB of RAM, so you should have more than enough. Are you running any other memory-intensive programs while you're compiling? Are you compiling on a tmpfs? Do you have a swap file/partition? What is your swappiness set to? These are the sorts of things that you should answer in a forum support thread if you need help with this.

This uses all my 8gb of RAM resulting in a systemfreeze. Is this normal?

@ray731: If you're happy with untracked software floating around your system, sure. The advantage of an AUR package is that, once built, you can install/remove the package with pacman. If that isn't of interest to you, then by all means use upstream's tarballs.

@WorMzy: yes, but palemoon-bin should be also installed. While the tarball should be just extracted to run palemoon. Isn't it simpler?

WorMzy commented on 2018-02-13 11:54

@ray731: yes, see the palemoon-bin package.

As indicated on , you can also download Pale Moon for Linux as a bzipped tarball that can be extracted and run from any location on your system.

@jerome2016: I've had another look at the strace output, and I noticed this line: openat(AT_FDCWD, "/usr/lib/", O_RDONLY|O_CLOEXEC) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)

I don't get that message when I run strace palemoon, so I have to assume something on your system is trying to pull it in. The icu package was updated in mid-November, so is your system completely up-to-date? (including any AUR packages which may need a rebuild due to the icu version bump).

Use lddd or findbrokenpkgs to identify any packages that might need a rebuild. Note that you will get false positives with either tool, so I prefer to run the former, then run

for pkg in $(pacman -Qqm); do
grep $pkg /tmp/lddd-script.*/possible-rebuilds.txt

to get a list of foreign packages which may need rebuilding.

@jerome2016: I haven't been able to reproduce this so far, but assuming you are the same user who created this topic, I recommend rebuilding with gcc5, instead of using gcc6. Aside from the glibc/C99_MATH bug below, I have never had any problems with the former.

Unfortunately I am away on holiday until the 4th of December, so I am unable to update this package until then. It should be a simple pkgver bump though, so it's easy enough to update the PKGBUILD manually (for those who can't wait).
