Thanks, I 'll try that.

If I click on the repo link there http://linux.palemoon.org/
I only get the options for the GTK2 build.
It uses this link: https://software.opensuse.org/download. ... e=palemoon
Powerline adapters (dLAN) hardly interfere shortwave radio, so stop using them.

Yes, I still use a 64 bit capable Pentium 4 670 processor with Pale Moon.

GTK 3's in a different repo because of some quirks in the way the Build Service creates the user's directions to add the repo depending on the package name.

Some have suggested that I split palemoon into a palemoon-gtk2 and a palemoon-gtk3 package, but it's easy to suggest when someone else does the work, plus those changes would still require more changes to the instructions than my simple addition of a GTK 3 repo. But I agree that the GTK 3 repo should be added.

As for why I don't do GTK 2 versions for Sid and Hirsute, it's because GTK 2 is on its way out, if that's news to you.

I know, but GTK2 looks better and still works on Hirsute.

Go search for GTK3 theme that suits you then, there's plenty of them ;)

Hi Steve,

got a reference to this thread from a another thread regarding a question of mine.
Hope it's ok if i post my question here:

I'm in need of palemoon 29.1.1 .deb binary packages for debian 10, debian testing (the upcomming debian 11) and for raspbian.

Is there a archive with older versions of your palemoon builds?

On the palemoon-site i can only find a reference to the suse-download site (https://software.opensuse.org/download. ... e=palemoon), wich only contains builds of the actual palemoon version.

Greetings.

Or you could set up your own free OBS repo for Hirsute and have it build you a GTK 2 version--you can use the same sources as for the other distros' GTK 2 version, but you'll have to change the last line in debian/mozconfig so it only builds with one thread--something to do with the version of "make" in hirsute and sid seems to require that.

Hmmm--guess I didn't see this.

No, there isn't any archive of the older versions as far as I know. It probably could be recreated with some work, or the MX repository manager usually hangs onto older MX packages just in case someone needs them. I build Pale Moon packages for MX in standard Debian schroots, and I think Debian 10 armhf builds are good for Raspian 10. I didn't do any Raspian 9 armhf builds, though.

Even if users aren't signed onto the OBS, with some link following, they can get into the download repo and get any file in it, including the debianized source, but once I delete the older source files, they and the binaries they generate are gone baby gone.

I'll ask our repo manager if he still has the older MX debs.

29.2.1 packages are ready in my repos now, though.

Hello @stevepusser first of all, thanks for your work.

I use Debian testing and I have the repositories configured and I am not updated to the new version 29.2.1.

In all versions of Debian and those of Ubuntu, the new version 29.2.1 has been available for a long time, but in Debian testing, it follows 29.2.0.

https://software.opensuse.org/download. ... e=palemoon

Please, you could upload it when you can.

Thanks.

Greetings.

It is not available, because the automatic build fails. You can read log here https://build.opensuse.org/package/live ... ing/x86_64
I don't know obs/debian that much so I don't know what exactly these errors means. It is called "testing" after all, so such fails are much more common ;p

Ok thank you very much for the clarification, we will have to wait then for them to solve it, the versions prior to this have been working, so it will be something specific.

Apparently the same problematic "make" that was in Sid has now made it into Testing, and that requires that PM be compiled with one thread instead of as many as your build machine can handle. :? So the fix was to just use the same mozconfig for testing that I was already using for the Sid builds.
