Hi Walter Dnes
, I'm really glad that I read from you again. (And Gentoo is missing in my life, but I'm not such powerful user to compile/run/maintain it alongside Devuan, not yet
, but I hope I will be back to Gentoo community

A few notes...
- The official answer will be from Moochild. If he doesn't answer on this thread, PM him.
, who is a prominent member of the Moonchild Productions team, I'd believe is authoritative enough. And also publicly posting is, IMO, always quicker and cleaner, and more reliable way when it comes to IP issues. Maybe I shouldn't digress, but while I had manipulation of posts of mine in Gentoo Forums, I love it that, even when they're not perfect, such as more kindness would be desirable in communication, even when one is absolutely in the right, Pale Moon forum admins do not hide, delete or manipulate posts of their users in the least...
So while eventually, in case of contestation of some kind --which this is not-- it would be necessary to contact the man of the final say, the public conversations so far, should perfectly suffice in this case.
No, New Moon is not the way to go. In complex project like this, a (would-be) packager (me in this case) should stick with the official support. Issues can crop up in such complex projects that only the genius that keep all the threads of such project, and no one or close to no one else in the world, can solve. Relinquishing on the official support, I don't think that would be the way to go.
[*]Enabling dbus requires additional dbus libraries on the build machine and on the end-user's machine. The only thing I'm aware of that dbus is used for is to communicate with screensavers to disable them when playing video. And that doesn't always work, as noted in thread https://forum.palemoon.org/viewtopic.php?f=37&t=18798
Thanks for this information. I'll study it.
[*]Enabling pulseaudio requires pulseaudio on the build machine, but not on the end-user's machine. If the end-user machine only has alsa, it'll still work with Pale Moon, including sound. Are you sure that nobody using your version will have pulseaudio?[/list]
A very good question! I'll need to discuss this on Devuan Forums, and DNG Devuan Mailng list. That remains to be solved.
I want Devuan users with pure alsa to not be deprived of the sound, but if other Devuan users have pulseaudio, audio must work on their machines too. I need to find more information/gain more understanding on this.
Thank you, Walter Dnes
for this piece of support.

Really great to hear that!
Your personal likes and dislikes cannot be a factor in this..
Yeah, I see. I thought last night after making the last edit (the addition of the -disable-safe-browsing
) which was just before going to sleep, so there was no time to add this thought: safe-browsing
I will have to compile in (I guess it's the default, so just removing the --disable-safe-browsing
from mozconfig will compile it, but...
But I believe it is free to offer to users right upon installation, in some way (which I will have to learn how to do, yet, anybody, how can that be accomplished?), with a click or two, to disable it on their machines.
Keep at it.. You are getting close it would be a shame if you stopped now..
I am doing some more thinking next. Be back with another mozconfig revision. Thanks!
