Do you have any plans on making an version for Debian testing? I've moved from Stretch to Buster and am curious whether your Stretch repository will work on Buster. My guess is no because something might need to update in Buster that would break it in Stretch, but still curious.

You can try the Stretch version in Buster--chances are that it will work. The Jessie build is known to work just fine in Stretch, so we can hope that the backwards compatibility will continue for gcc. The OBS didn't activate a Stretch repo until the release of Stretch, so I'd expect a long wait for a Buster build platform to become available.

Just uploaded the source code files into the OBS--so Pale Moon 27.4.1 should be built and in the repo in an hour or so.

27.4.2 is currently building in the OBS, so should be ready shortly--about an hour or so.

I'm looking into adding a 32-bit "nonsse" version for some really old machines that doesn't require SSE2, based on Walter Dnes's mozconfig.

Pending approval by the developers...changing it to "newmoon" is more of a hassle.

A note about naming, to avoid confusion... my build is an "SSE-only" build. It requires SSE support in the CPU (Pentium 3 or higher). There actually was a "non-sse" contributed build for Windows XP at one time https://forum.palemoon.org/viewtopic.php?f=40&t=11809 which was targetted at Pentium and Pentium 2 CPUs. See https://gcc.gnu.org/onlinedocs/gcc-6.3.0/gcc/x86-Options.html#x86-Options for an idea of which CPU supports which features.

Thanks for the information! The package is now named palemoon-nonsse2, and I just flipped on the publishing switch for it in the repo. It was sitting there for a few days, but nobody could see it in the apt system until I did that. I copied your sse/sse2-related mozconfig flags for the package.

Hi Steve.

Is everething ok with your Palemoon repo ?

I've got the following message when apt-update:

Code: Select all

E: The repository 'http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/stevenpusser/Debian_9.0  Release' does no longer have a Release file.
N: Updating from such a repository can't be done securely, and is therefore disabled by default.
N: See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration details.

Yes--the openSUSE Build Service is having issues at the moment.

You can't trust the publish state atm, since download.o.o is currently not the same server we push to.

Our download infrastructure is dead atm. Publishing is stopped therefore. Building works as usual, just publishing will happen later.

Pale Moon 27.5.0 packages all built and ready, the -nonsse2 variant packages are building and should be available very soon. I can't edit the title of this thread any longer for some reason, but packages are currently built for Debian 7, 8, and 9, and for Ubuntu 14.04, 16.04, 16.10, and 17.04.

The OBS has this notice up:

Also, there will be a power outage in the OBS server room next weekend, 14-15 October. OBS will be offline during that time!


Just so everyone won't unduly worry about me or the repo.

One of our MX Linux packagers lives in the eastern part of Santa Rosa, CA, and was evacuated for the wildfires. His workplace seems to have been destroyed, but so far his home seems to have been just outside the devastation. They could hear propane tanks exploding nearby before they evacuated. Tim, who also packages, plus maintains our repository, lives in eastern Florida and had to evacuate for Irma last month. His home also survived w/o damage, though power was out for quite some time.
