@notrufus: Yes definitely. It's even worse in the latest snapshots, the whole window doesn't refresh and freeze with a few cpu core maxed out for a few secs.

Anyone having youtube playback issues with this version? I'm getting freezing when playing youtube videos (video freezes but audio continues so it's not a buffering issue)

@Dawa : w3m is not an actual dependency, its only needed to "make" the package. Thats also why its in the makedepends

Ralf_Mardorf commented on 2020-04-29 18:01

Dawa, take a look at the last lines of the PKGBUILD, the ncurses browser is needed for the EULA.

Dawa commented on 2020-04-29 16:38

Hello, was wondering about the w3m dependency. Is it really necessary? Not an issue or anything; just wondering why I have to install a browser, to install a browser.

Hi, when I try to launch vivaldi, I get this output, and the browser does not appear. vivaldi-stable 'terminated by signal SIGBUS (Bus address error)

Thank you, you were lucky not to have to witness the horrible sight of me trying to edit pacman.conf and mirrorlist.

BlackIkeEagle commented on 2020-03-17 11:24

@Expatbrat, thats why the pinned comment is there

Expatbrat commented on 2020-03-17 10:51

Everytime I update vivaldi and vivaldi-ffmpeg-codecs (with yay) the update appears to download and make chromium. This is long and painful, is there a way around it? Am I doing something wrong?
