Uninstalled and re-build icecat again. Works without a hitch now. Thanks figue!

figue commented on 2020-07-31 16:33

You right... Fixed all patch. Please try again

Thanks for quick turnaround, for me another glitch has came up:

Hunk #2 succeeded at 175 (offset 3 lines). -> Starting build... patching file config/makefiles/ can't find file to patch at input line 24 Perhaps you used the wrong -p or --strip option? The text leading up to this was:
