Basilisk for Raspberry Pi

Unread post by dimag0g » 2019-10-06, 19:59

Hi,

I'm the person who used to provide Pale Moon Raspberry Pi builds back in 2015, which I later stopped due to a lack of interest.
I would like to resume this activity, and I'm considering making builds of Basilisk this time.

I wonder if it's a good idea or whether Pale Moon would be a better candidate for such a release.

My plan is to post binary releases on my github page. Would that be OK, or would you prefer to have them as downloads on your site?

I'd like to use the official branding if I'm permitted to do so.

The issue is with Basilisk is that the EME CDM won't have an arm linux version afaik so one of Basilisk's selling points won't be possible. So Pale Moon might be a better option.. PLUS all your old users could come back.

Good point. Do you know how changes to master end up in PaleMoon_release branch? Assuming that similar changes will be needed to get Pale Moon to build on ARM, would it be wise to re-apply the ARM fixes to PaleMoon_release branch in my repo, or is it better to wait when they are merged to PaleMoon_release in the main repo?
