Mageia Pale Moon repository

Post by tarakbumba » 2021-04-08, 12:44

Hello everyone. I want to announce my Pale Moon packages repository for Mageia GNU/Linux. It's created as an OpenSuse Build Service project and I use official Pale Moon branding per discussion with Pale Moon devs. These packages are provided as i586 and x86_64 architectures. To install and use Pale Moon your cpu should support "sse2" instruction set. This will be checked by rpm package at install time. You can write your issues and opinions about these packages under this topic. Please do not ask for applying any patches or language packs/extensions/themes rpm packages which violate official branding rules.

To install Pale Moon rpm packages from my OBS project you should have "dnf" package manager installed on your system. You can install dnf (if not installed already) by issuing following command on a terminal, as root:

Code: Select all

 urpmi dnf 
You can add this repository to your dnf repository and install Pale Moon directly to your Mageia system:

For Mageia Cauldron run the following as root:

Code: Select all

dnf config-manager --add-repo https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:tarakbumba:palemoon/Mageia_Cauldron/home:tarakbumba:palemoon.repo
dnf install palemoon

For Mageia 8 run the following as root:

Code: Select all

dnf config-manager --add-repo https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:tarakbumba:palemoon/Mageia_8/home:tarakbumba:palemoon.repo
dnf install palemoon
For Mageia 7 run the following as root:

Code: Select all

dnf config-manager --add-repo https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:tarakbumba:palemoon/Mageia_7/home:tarakbumba:palemoon.repo
dnf install palemoon

I think exactly same. They deserve our thanks and blessings I think.

Nice, another distro with it's own package. Is there anywhere to check what toolchain is used during builds and all the other build details?

Yes, you can check directly OBS project page linked in first post. Examine rpm specfile (namely palemoon.spec) for build instructions used in package and also you can look at build logs by clicking on desired packages "Build Results" at that page.
