Yeah, but I think there's something wrong with the 17.10 build system on the OBS. It fails with

Code: Select all

[ 1223s] /usr/src/packages/BUILD/intl/icu/source/i18n/digitlst.cpp:67:24: fatal error: xlocale.h: No such file or directory
[ 1223s]  #   include <xlocale.h>
[ 1223s]                         ^
[ 1223s] compilation terminated.


and xlocale.h should be provided by the installed libc6-dev package. I'm going to try and set up an amd64 Ubuntu 17.10 basic build environment via QEMU and pbuilder on my system to see if the same failure happens there. It's much faster and simpler to do that than to go through an whole distro install.

Ubuntu 17.10 users should be fine by using my 17.04 repository in the meantime, though.

Adding 27.6.0 to the repository. I'm trying to add the extra compiler vectorization flags for the build to releases that support those. Debian 7 and Ubuntu 16.04 fail right off the bat with those flags, saying those are unsupported, so I added a little switch that gives those releases a configure file without the extra flags. Waiting to see what happens...

Updated to 27.6.1 for both main and nonsse2 versions. Sorry they are late, been very busy helping with getting MX 17 Linux out.

No problem! Hey, your avatar is like these coyotes that join me on evening walks nearly every night. Here they are asking for treats last Halloween night:

The alpha on the left will eat from my hand if it's something that smells good. (Yes, I know I'm not supposed to feed them, but they remain very skittish of other people so far) It's the closest I can get to Moonchild's wolf...Last night they spotted and treed a mother raccoon and her four grown cubs until I made them leave. That's possibly a female on the right, then the omega male in the back, which was the first one to start going along with the walk.

And Q4OS now has Palemoon (mainstream AND sse-only) packaged, making both its install and upgrade a breeze [1].
it's a chain of which your work is a key factor Steeve.
I didn't know you're of the MX team :thumbup:

PS and wild animals you shall not feed. However some are so freakin opportunistic :)

It's either that or they eat the neighborhood cats and rat-dogs. There's so many freaking brush rabbits around here--either they are too quick to catch, or the yotes can't make a dent in their numbers. They say coyotes are actually good for songbird populations, since they control the species that rob nests, such as raccoons, possums, rats, snakes, etc. If these guys get too used to people, a few paintballs can put a healthy fear back into them.

I'm not sure where Q4OS's installer is getting Pale Moon from--most of the esh installer file is binary. It could be their own version, the official binaries, or something else.

Yes, I'm the lead packager for MX Linux, plus have had some influence on what apps are on the ISO. Having the excellent new lightweight Featherpad text editor as default on the upcoming MX 17 is my doing, for example. It's much better than the former Leafpad.
