I spoke too soon..I assumed that it would build, based on the success for Debian Buster, but it's failing with some new compiler error. :thumbdown: So 18.04 users will have to use the rebundled binary version in the repo instead.

Updating to 27.9.2. Something has rolled into Debian Buster that is now breaking the builds there, the rest seem OK:

Code: Select all

[ 1162s] make[9]: Entering directory '/usr/src/packages/BUILD/obj-i686-pc-linux-gnu/intl/icu/target/layoutex'
[ 1162s] make[9]: *** No rule to make target 'ParagraphLayout.o', needed by '../lib/libiculx.so.58.2'.  Stop.
[ 1162s] make[9]: Leaving directory '/usr/src/packages/BUILD/obj-i686-pc-linux-gnu/intl/icu/target/layoutex'
[ 1162s] Makefile:147: recipe for target 'all-recursive' failed
[ 1162s] make[8]: *** [all-recursive] Error 2
[ 1162s] make[8]: Leaving directory '/usr/src/packages/BUILD/obj-i686-pc-linux-gnu/intl/icu/target'
[ 1162s] Makefile:59: recipe for target 'buildicu' failed
[ 1162s] make[7]: *** [buildicu] Error 2


Edit: the Arch AUR build runs this command before the build:

Code: Select all

 sed -i 's#xlocale#locale#' Pale-Moon/intl/icu/source/i18n/digitlst.cpp


Don't exactly what it inserts, but I can run it and then make a patch from the difference, then see what happens for the Buster build.

The 27.9.3 builds are getting an update that pulls in fonts-symbola to solve issues with sites that use emoji fonts as icons, notably Github. The repo will also update fonts-symbola to 2.60 if you have an older version, in order to support the 9.0 emoji standards.

There is no firejail package for Debian 7 (Wheezy) amd64, since the build fails with the hardening flags enabled in the rules file. If anyone really needs that, I could build a version with the hardening flags turned off, with the understanding that could be less secure.


Hi Steve, I'm now running Debian 9 and using your excellent repo, thank you! One thing I've noticed though, I've installed firejail from the backports repo but apt still wants to upgrade to your version. When I run

Code: Select all

apt search firejail
this is what I get...

Code: Select all

Sorting... Done
Full Text Search... Done
firejail/unknown 1:0.9.44.10-1 amd64 [upgradable from: 0.9.54-1~bpo9+1]


I'm wondering if this isn't happening because you're version numbering starts with 1:0 and not 0.9 as per the backported version? What do you think?

@C1xLb

If/when/until Steve fixes this issue... Here's my workaround to Steve's firejail version issue that works for me. I added a file to directory: /etc/apt/preferences.d/ named 'palemoon.pref' (you can name it anything you like as long as it has the .pref extension!) with contents:

Code: Select all

Package: firejail gtk2-engines-oxygen:i386 firetools
Pin: origin "download.opensuse.org"
Pin-Priority: 50


'man apt_preferences ==> https://linux.die.net/man/5/apt_preferences

Since the 'Pin-Priority' in the code shown above is set to a very low: '50', any other firejail package you install should take precedent over the 'firejail' pkg available from Steve's repo

BTW, I'm running 'firejail 0.9.54-1' in Linux Mint 19 MATE 64-bit, but this most likely will work for you in Debian as well.
