There is a netsurf package in official repository that works, so you could try that. But because netsurf doesn't support javascript, I dropped it.

lockheed, I get the same errors as you. The makefile mentions "netsurf-buildsystem", but I can't find it on the netsurf webpage at One can speculate that it will be released shortly.

I didn't realise there is a non-dev version in official repos. Thanks.

But the error I am encountering, I am not sure whether it's netsurf-related or something is wrong in my system.

lockheed, the development version of netsurf is under continuous development and may have problems from time to time.
If you consider this a bug, consider reporting it upstream. Here's the bugtracker:

Adopted and fixed libdom-svn. Updated this PKGBUILD to makedepend on libdom-svn.

This package requires libdom on my system. There is a libdom-svn package in AUR but it is out of date and orphaned.

Updated the PKGBUILD. Now it works with libcss.

Here, netsurf-svn only builds with libcss-svn, not with libcss. When I run netsurf, it works great on one 64-bit Arch computer, but segfaults on another. YMMV

adamlau, thanks for the suggestions. I moved some of the dependencies to make dependencies and updated the libcss-svn dependency (I could not make it compile with the regular libcss package).
Also added application shortcut and icon. Namcap displays no errors.
