@hawkeye116477 hey that worked great, and thanks for removing that --with-system-libvpx, no errors were thrown without it.

@toxygen In case of Clang issue, seems that disabling elf hack helps.

toxygen commented on 2020-02-19 00:21

looks like the patch worked, so I was able to build. Without getting into a discussion about google/safe-browsing, i'll just say I prefer it off and appreciate your work on this package.

Sadly, even though the patch worked, the clang issue is still present for me, but it's an easy downgrade (until i forget to not clean up the clang/llvm files from pacman cache) so looks like it's building fine.

on a related note, are you having issues with libvpx 1.8.x? i have to manually set --without-system-libvpx for waterfox to build, otherwise i get a vpx error as per and

i'm on libvpx 1.8.2 and it still gives the error, so I'm guessing the issue is in waterfox/firefox, not libvpx, but I'm wondering how you got it to build.

@toxygen I'm not sure if disabling Safe Browsing is good option. It may reduce security. See also

In case of that error, check if fix from helps.

You can always also branch and change it to like you want.

so it looks like building with latest llvm/clang is ok now, but now i'm getting some weird graphics lib error that I cant hunt down anywhere:

src/Waterfox/obj-x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/dist/include/mozilla/dom/ImageBitmap.h:203:15: error: unknown type name 'gfxAlphaType' 5:17.30 gfxAlphaType aAlphaType = gfxAlphaType::Premult);

so @hawkeye116477, could you be so kind to build your binary version of waterfox-kpe-classic with additional flags:

--disable-safe-browsing --disable-synth-speechd

(only the first one is important to me, but the latter would be nice as well). Reason for this is to avoid browser from calling google on every request, as it does even when you disable in the options->security page ("Block dangerous and deceptive content). Meanwhile I'll keep hunting down that error, looks like a missing library or maybe and incompatible version.

@toxygen Oops, sorry, looks like I hurried up a little, anyway on line 231 was correct, name on source field was bad.

toxygen commented on 2019-11-14 02:47

two items:

PKGBUILD line 231 should be : install -Dm644 $srcdir/waterfox-classic-kpe.1 \ "$pkgdir/usr/share/man/man1/waterfox-classic-kpe.1"

(fails because cannot stat waterfox-classic.1)

second, please warn that you renamed /usr/bin/waterfox to waterfox-classic. not a biggie but it was weird :-)

also, still cant build on rust 1.1.39 and clang/llvm 9.0.0 versions that work for me are clang 8.0.1-1 llvm 8.0.1-3 llvm-libs 8.0.1-3 compiler-rt 8.0.1-1 rust 1:1.38.0-1.1

newer versions through errors while compiling

@toxygen KPE means KDE Plasma Edition :-)
