G6.0.10 is out now. This fails using yay. I was able to work around the failure by cloning the aur repo manually and got updated to G6.0.09. Again, G6.0.10 is out, so this needs updated. (I'm using waterfox-bin but this issue applies to waterfox also).

xfvb-run(xorg-server-xvfb) is required to build this:

/home/ugoff/.cache/yay/waterfox/PKGBUILD: line 136: xvfb-run: command not found

Currently I have not a stable connection, so I cannot download about 500 MB every time this package got updated.

This got tabled during a heavy sprint at $dayjob, but should be good to pick it back up next week.

Current revision is broken somewhere along the packaging of the artifact post compile. Still working on it.

Working on an update to G5.1.7 right now.

This is finally updated to the new Current, called G3.

The newer versions of the upstream (G3.0.0, G3.0.1 and G3.0.2) don't build and the error seems to be caused by updates of the rust compiler breaking bundled rust crates.

Please note that the build takes about 3 hours on my machine, and at two points of the build process (the two times libxul.so is linked) it fills my RAM and starts swapping. You might want to use the waterfox-current-bin package instead.

Thanks, I was wondering how much time it would take to build this.

Thank you ccorn, added them both to makedepends.
