Topic: Howto build iceweasel

Good day everybody,
after some searching, the most recent document I have found to guide on building Iceweasel on a generic GNU/Linux system is:
https://forums.hyperbola.info/viewtopic … 2354#p2354

However, it looks a bit outdated and not that detailed. I am trying to compile in my system without success. So far, I have this:

git clone https://github.com/RealityRipple/UXP.git
cd UXP && mkdir applications
cd applications
git clone https://git.hyperbola.info:50100/software/iceweasel-uxp.git
cd ..
echo 'ac_add_options --enable-application=iceweasel-uxp' >> .mozconfig
echo 'ac_add_options --disable-pulseaudio' >> .mozconfig
echo 'ac_add_options --disable-debug' >> .mozconfig
echo 'ac_add_options --enable-strip' >> .mozconfig
echo 'ac_add_options --disable-sync' >> .mozconfig
echo 'ac_add_options --disable-updater' >> .mozconfig
echo 'ac_add_options --disable-crashreporter' >> .mozconfig
echo 'ac_add_options --disable-maintenance-service' >> .mozconfig
echo 'ac_add_options --disable-tests' >> .mozconfig
echo 'ac_add_options --disable-ipdl-tests' >> .mozconfig
echo 'ac_add_options --disable-verify-mar' >> .mozconfig
./mach build
...
./mach run

Unfortunatelly, after some checks I get:
unknown project iceweasel-uxp

Of course, not hurry, just in case you have an idea about the missing steps.
Regards

I was going to try compiling iceweasel-uxp myself. I don't think your instructions have the correct git repo, I think that's an older git repo for one thing. I'm going to try exploring this over the next week, and see if I can help you bring those steps up to date.

In fact, I believe that the developers may be retiring "UXP" in favor of "GRE" ("goanna rendering engine", or something like that).

I could be wrong about the above, feel free to correct me. As I find out more I'll write my findings here.

Luke might return to update the project, its a toss up at the moment as far as I know, but long story short, it may indeed be possible.

@Andyprough I sent you a message regarding this just now, will send more soon.

Good news btw, seems Luke is returning to the project, at some point...

Not sure what he is up to at this time though. wink
