Palemoon-27.7.2~binaryrepack packages are being added for Ubuntu 17.10 and Debian testing. As you might guess from the name, they are the precompiled binary versions from Pale Moon put into deb files. Pale Moon gets installed into /opt with a symlink in /usr/bin, you get it added to the menu with an icon, and it's also added as an alternative to the x-www-browser and gnome browser choices like the standard Pale Moon I build. Maybe in the future, a fixed glibc will roll into Debian Testing and I can switch back to source builds there.

If anyone else can test the 27.7.2 rebundled binaries in the repo for Ubuntu 17.10 or Debian testing, a moderator could then add them to the original title of this thread. They work fine for me in my tests.

Sorry, I've not been on the forum in a while. I'm using the build on Ubuntu 17.10 and everything seems to be working fine! Thanks very much for your effort!

Sorry to be dense about this, but what are the steps I need to follow to install pm 27 on a Debian Stretch system?

I have this line: deb http://download.opensuse.org/repositori ... ebian_9.0/ / in palemoon.list under sources.list.d. But apt-get update does not give me v. 27 . For some reason I'm on 25 (I just moved computers and somehow got 25). None of my extensions want to work, even gifs won't play, so no matter what, I want to get to 27. Version 27 worked great on my old laptop, whose screen is now iffy.

I know how to install a .deb, but these are not that, right? If I have to compile from source, I'm not sure I remember how to do that. I've done it maybe like 5 times in my life and always get in trouble.

I downloaded

Code: Select all

http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/stevenpusser/Debian_9.0/palemoon_27.7.2~repack-1.debian.tar.xz
but that doesn't look right because it's only 26K. ?? When I untar it, there's an "install" file but a) it just seems to refer to a logo file and b) the READ.ME doesn't say which command to run.

Anyway, as I say, sorry to be dense, but could a kind soul post a step-by-step for those of us who don't have a .deb?

The debian folder is what gets added to the original source to tell the Debian packaging system how to build ,label, patch, and everything else necessary to create a Debian package. The original Pale Moon source code is in that 121 MB orig.tar.xz file.

Congrats for getting the deb, but usually it's better to have the repository. You have the repository in your sources, but did you add the key?

Some diagnostics:

install inxi and give us the result of "inxi -r" for a look at your active repositories.

Give us the output of "apt-get update" so we can see what's going wrong with updating your sources.

I installed the .deb with gdebi, so maybe apt is seeing the newest version? And that's why it doesn't see the need to update? Although of course the reason for the whole argle-bargle is that apt was not seeing the need to update before. I guess I'll know whether it's working okay now or is still not updating the next time there's an update posted on your site.

Well, if you didn't have it installed from apt before, the "update" command just refreshes your list of available packages, and "upgrade" won't do anything because there's no palemoon to upgrade. So you have to "apt install palemoon".

Code: Select all

apt policy palemoon


shows your current situation. I think you are good for the next time it gets updated.

I get this when running "apt policy palemoon":

Code: Select all

palemoon:
  Installed: 27.7.2~repack-1
  Candidate: 27.7.2~repack-1
  Version table:
 *** 27.7.2~repack-1 500
        500 http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/stevenpusser/Debian_9.0  Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status


So it sounds like apt will do its thing. Excellent.

I've successfully built 27.7.2 from source on Debian testing against gcc-4.9.4 in an experimental OBS repo, now that they have updated glibc (libc6) to 2.26-6 with a lot of bug fixes, so I'll add that version to the repo for testing. I'll leave the ~repackbinaries version in there, too, in case anyone wants to compare them. Ubuntu 17.10 is still going to have the bugged glibc, but 18.04 won't.

Edit: the builds all succeeded, so Ubuntu 17.10 remains the odd one out. I also added the -repackbinaries version for all distros, just in case anyone wants to see if there's any difference between it and the version built from source. However, it and the normal palemoon package cannot be installed at the same time, since I have them both linked to use /usr/bin/palemoon.

@stevepusser you suggest :

For xUbuntu 17.10 run the following:

Code: Select all

sudo sh -c "echo 'deb http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/stevenpusser/xUbuntu_17.10/ /' > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/palemoon.list"
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install palemoon


You can add the repository key to apt. Keep in mind that the owner of the key may distribute updates, packages and repositories that your system will trust (more information). To add the key, run:

Code: Select all

wget -nv https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:stevenpusser/xUbuntu_17.10/Release.key -O Release.key
sudo apt-key add - < Release.key
sudo apt-get update


if one has a *Release.key* at that location, a naïve user like me would be perplexed and stymied.

would this work better ?

Code: Select all

wget -q https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:stevenpusser/xUbuntu_17.10/Release.key -O- | sudo apt-key add -
sudo apt-get update

If you pay attention, and if you watch the output when you already have a Release.key, you'll see you'll get a Release.keyX file, where X is some number. Just substitute that in the apt-key command.

Or else run

Code: Select all

rm -f Release.key


before the other commands to make sure your folder is clean.

Anyway, the OBS automatically generates those instructions and the key. I wish I could edit them, myself.

I don't know about the other repositories. I know mine builds against gcc-4.X, which the developers really want everyone to do.
Sparky Linux also has a build from source in their repos. I just looked at Sunderland93's in the OBS, and it's copied from my sources, so should be a duplicate and OK.

accomplish the same thing; you have just combined two commands into one using the pipe. So I'm not really sure what you are getting at. If you are sophisticated enough in your understanding of GNU/Linux to do this, then it's not clear to me why the presence of the file "Release.key" in your home directory (or root directory) would create problems. :think:
