For contributed third party builds not necessarily configured like the main product.

palemoon is not compiled in gentoo

Ave! Sorry my bad English.
palemoon from the official "palemoon" overlay is not compiled, there are already several releases. With the same message:

Don't keep a separate version of the compiler specifically for it, do you think?

Whomever created the gentoo overlay simply needs to update it with gcc 9.3, OR you could as a workaround read the actual message you get and set the env var to override that check if your compiler mismatches.

For what is worth, I didn't meet any major issue with gcc 9.3 so if you set the environment variable everything should work.
Though the list of accepted versions should be updated too, eventually.

This is understandable, but how do I get this overlay in order? I wrote to the maintainer, there is no response. Strangely, the latest versions of palemoon appear, and this is not fixed.

I thought the "palemoon" overlay was official, but it turns out it isn't. Is there an official way for gentoo to install palemoon, other than from the source code?

Standard UNIX way:

Code: Select all

PALEMOON_ENABLE_UNSUPPORTED_COMPILERS=1 emerge --update palemoon

We do not maintain overlays, packages, etc. for the many flavors of Linux, including Gentoo.
We provide generic precompiled and tested binaries for use on Linux. The only packaging done that is still "close to home" and could be considered mostly-official is Steve Pusser's work for debian and the likes, but even that is a 3rd party if you want to be technical about it. Linux is simply too diverse (one could say chaotic) of a target for us to officially support the many different distribution methods for. Every distro does things "their own way".

Deu maintains the pseudo-official gentoo overlay but I haven't heard from him in some time. You can try and seek him out though.
