How to compile SeaMonkey 2.48

Comments
I have received a request, how to compile SeaMonkey 2.48.

This is a useful read:
http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/blfs/view/cvs/xsoft/seamonkey.html

Get the 'hotfix.patch' from here:
http://svn.exactcode.de/t2/trunk/package/www/seamonkey/hotfix.patch

This is what I did:

# patch -p1 < ../hotfix.patch

# CFLAGS_HOLD=$CFLAGS
# CXXFLAGS_HOLD=$CXXFLAGS
# EXTRA_FLAGS=" -fno-delete-null-pointer-checks -fno-lifetime-dse -fno-schedule-insns2"
# export CFLAGS+=$EXTRA_FLAGS
# export CXXFLAGS+=$EXTRA_FLAGS
# unset EXTRA_FLAGS
<

This is my mozconfig file. Note that I used system pixman, however pixman spits out error messages, non-fatal, but you might want to consider using SM's internal pixman library: "--disable-system-pixman"

I did not use system nspr and nss, as in Quirky 8.3 (based on Ububtu 16.04.2 DEBs) they are too old.

Here is 'mozconfig':
mk_add_options MOZ_MAKE_FLAGS='-j1'

mk_add_options MOZ_CO_PROJECT=suite
ac_add_options --enable-application=suite
ac_add_options --enable-system-hunspell
ac_add_options --prefix=/usr
ac_add_options --host=x86_64-pc-linux-gnu
ac_add_options --disable-dbus
ac_add_options --disable-accessibility
ac_add_options --with-system-bz2
ac_add_options --disable-updater
ac_add_options --disable-parental-controls
ac_add_options --disable-system-sqlite
ac_add_options --disable-system-cairo
ac_add_options --enable-strip
ac_add_options --without-system-jpeg
ac_add_options --with-system-zlib
ac_add_options --disable-tests
ac_add_options --with-default-mozilla-five-home=/usr/lib/seamonkey
ac_add_options --enable-default-toolkit=cairo-gtk2
ac_add_options --disable-crashreporter
ac_add_options --with-system-libvpx
ac_add_options --enable-gio
ac_add_options --disable-necko-wifi
ac_add_options --disable-gconf
#ac_add_options --with-system-nspr
#ac_add_options --with-system-nss
ac_add_options --enable-ldap
ac_add_options --with-system-icu
ac_add_options --disable-pulseaudio
ac_add_options --enable-alsa
ac_add_options --enable-system-ffi
ac_add_options --disable-gnomeui
ac_add_options --with-pthreads
ac_add_options --enable-system-pixman
ac_add_options --disable-debug
ac_add_options --with-system-libevent
#ac_add_options --disable-libjpeg-turbo

Just put 'mozconfig' into top-level of source code, then off you go:

# make -f client.mk

Before installing, if you already have /usr/lib/seamonkey-2.48 and seamonkey-devel-2.48, /usr/share/idl/seamonkey-2.48, and /usr/include/seamonkey-2.48, rename them to something else. then:

# make -f client.mk install

Make sure that /usr/lib/seamonkey is a symlink to seamonkey-2.48, and check that /usr/bin/seamonkey is a symlink to /usr/lib/seamonkey/seamonkey or /usr/lib/seamonkey-2.48/seamonkey

Then run "seamonkey".

Or, if you want to make a pet, use 'cp -a' to copy out all of those target directories, before running seamonkey (when seamonkey runs, it actually writes into /usr/lib/seamonkey-2.48, or at least it used to, so grab the pristine files before first run of seamonkey).

Tidy up: if creating a PET, good to use an existing PET, such as mine, as a template. Note, delete the dictionary files, as all pups have hunspell, and delete the 'modern' theme -- again, look in my PETs.

Get my PET from here:
http://distro.ibiblio.org/quirky/quirky6/amd64/packages/pet_packages-xerus/seamonkey-2.48-xerus64.pet

If you have Quirky and maybe a very recent pup, it will have 'pet2dir' utility, so just do this to expand the PET to a folder:

# pet2dir seamonkey-2.48-xerus64.pet

If your pup does not have this utility, then do it this way, which will give an error message, but works:

# tar -xf seamonkey-2.48-xerus64.pet

SeaMonkey 2.48 final

Comments
Quirky 8.3 has SeaMonkey 2.48-beta1.

Now, the final has been released. I have compiled it in Easy (Ubuntu 16.04.2 Xenial Xerus compatible).

PET (45.9M):
http://distro.ibiblio.org/quirky/quirky6/amd64/packages/pet_packages-xerus/seamonkey-2.48-xerus64.pet

I was astounded how fast SM compiled. I am running Easy on the "innostor" 16GB USB3 Flash drive that I bought recently for AU$7. It is plugged into a USB2 socket, but that doesn't slow it down. Plus, 'q.sfs' is in RAM. 'devx' sfs is mounted in the aufs layer and that is mounted from the flash stick. In all, very fast.

HelpSurfer 0.2

Comments
HelpSurfer is at version 0.2.

Forum member SFR posted a patch for Surfer, see my blog post yesterday:
http://barryk.org/news/?viewDetailed=00632

Hey, it is like I am a little kid again, on Christmas morning!
I put in another request, for a "Quit" icon in Surfer, and SFR posted another patch:
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=962839#962839

Here is the latest source, with both patches applied:
http://distro.ibiblio.org/quirky/quirky6/sources/alphabetical/h/helpsurfer-0.2.tar.gz

And a 64-bit PET, compiled in Easy (built with Ubuntu 16.04.2 Xenial Xerus DEBs):
http://distro.ibiblio.org/quirky/quirky6/amd64/packages/pet_packages-xerus/helpsurfer-0.2-xerus64.pet

Yes, Easy, I am excited like a little kid about that too, 'coz it is coming along very well. For those who don't know, Easy is the "next generation" after Quirky Linux.

Mele PCG35 Apo mini-PC

If I was on the lookout to buy a mini-PC right now, this one would rate near the top of the list:
https://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/Fanless-Windows-10-Mini-PC-Desktop-MeLE-PCG35-Apo-4GB-32GB-Intel-Apollo-Lake-Celeron-J3455/715968_32822268228.html



The Aussie Dollar is riding high right now, one Dollar buys 80 US cents. Let's see, US$179 is AU$225.

The chap at cnx-software has looked at it:

Apparently there is an "Ubuntu edition" in the works.
