What Moonchild means is how on earth you missed this set of commands:
Code: Select all
git clone https://repo.palemoon.org/MoonchildProductions/Pale-Moon.git ./
Does this work with with the UXP-RELBASE_20200929? I really don't want to download another version of this file, because it takes so many time to decompress it. I will do so if I absolutely have to:
Code: Select all
git submodule init && git submodule update
Now that you mentioned it, I found it on Readme.md
[quode]git checkout release && git submodule update
Now these commands are not in the Readme.md
Before you ask, they do require that "git" is installed on your system.
If you just want to learn building from source as self improvement, there's nothing wrong with that, but browsers are far from a beginner's exercise. Try something much simpler to begin with, and always read the entire page of instructions before doing anything.

I'm sorry but I think you are lacking the basic skills needed to build from source (which includes actually reading information in the repository's readmes)
My suggestion: Please use a precompiled binary.
Well, I already compiled: A lot of Xorg stack and Gtk's stack. Plus, I did all of it outside default system dir (/usr/ or /usr/local/), installing everything in their own folders, which increases the difficult level, I would say, around 5 to 10 times. Plus things like: Python, Gcc, Glibc, Kernel OpenSSl, Alsa, Autoconf, Automake, Mplayer, Nasm, Yasm, libjpeg, libpng,expat, freetype,fontconfig,libtiff,wget,XZ,Zliv,M4,SDL, again, all outside system tree structure (although in some cases does not matter that much, at least to build them).
So I think I shall at least give it a try.

You CAN still do it manually with the comm and platform tarballs but git is so much simpler.
Will pick up the correct autoconf and see if I can generate a configure from it
