We do have a workaround in place that disables the overzealous internal optimizations that GCC6 does by default - http://xref.palemoon.org/uxp-trunk/sour ... pts.m4#192

That being said though, using GCC 6 is still not recommended if it can be helped.

Debian patches gcc quite a bit, so perhaps they tamed it. Otherwise, I don't know how they built a very stable Stretch release upon a wild gcc like that. I'll take a "wait and see" approach for now.

Packages for Pale Moon 28.8.0 are now available. Also, experimental armhf and arm64 packages are now available for the distros that support the build on the OBS. Please let me know if you can get them to run if you give them a try.

So you worked it out? Feel free to share any specific configuration with us, likely in another thread.

No, it's just that 28.8.0 builds while 28.7.0 errors out. All the builds are using the same source files, with the same mozconfig as I've had for a while--nothing fancy. I remember that arm64 builds were dying much sooner than the armhf ones with 28.7.0, but they both succeed now.

I don't have any ARM hardware to test those on, but maybe some Pi owners will let us know what happens.

I have a report that the Debian testing armhf (armv71) build works on Kali Linux running on an Asus Flip C100P board. Waiting for more...do the PM devs want to ask for more testers?

I tried to set up Raspian in a QEMU virtual machine to test it there, but haven't succeeded.
