Building this package from source requires an exceptionally long time (usually a few hours). But you can create it in a few minutes - as in the instruction:

So maybe we should change the way it is created? (or create a new package: seamonkey-bin ?)

@carsme, the version 2.53.18-2 built without issue.

troncoso commented on 2023-12-29 16:00 (UTC)

@carsme, For me the new package builds and works like a charm. Thank you!

giannis-arch commented on 2023-12-29 15:43 (UTC)

Only with clean-chroot, icu 74.1 and "ac_add_options --with-system-icu" in mozconfig as disabled, I managed to build the "seamonkey 2.53.18" package.

carsme commented on 2023-12-29 14:47 (UTC)

Worked around the ICU incompatibility by using the bundled one instead of the system ICU. Let me know if you experience more problems.

carsme commented on 2023-12-29 13:34 (UTC)

@troncoso, I believe this error is due to Seamonkey being incompatible with version 74 of icu. Hopefully Seamonkey is updated soon.

In the meantime, we could depend on icu73-bin, but I've so far not been able to re-configure the build to link to that version. Help very much appreciated!

On my system build failed with these errors:

0:14.05 make[2]: *** [/home/pepe/.config/trizen/sources/seamonkey/src/seamonkey-2.53.18/config/ compile] Error 2
0:14.05 make[1]: *** [/home/pepe/.config/trizen/sources/seamonkey/src/seamonkey-2.53.18/config/ default] Error 2
0:14.05 make: *** [ build] Error 2
0:14.07 735 compiler warnings present.
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

As of 2023-12-29 16:00 (UTC) this is no longer a problem. The new package builds OK.

Restalling Seamonkey, I'm getting the following error:

I have installed: pkgconf 1.8.1-1. Is that what is requested, or is that something different?

I have rustup 1.2.9-3 installed. I note that rust is available, and assume that I should be following the instructions to use rustup instead.
