Availability of Firefox 45.9.0 as .rpm file
« on: October 06, 2017, 05:15:43 pm »
Does somebody know when the Firefox .rpm will be made available?

Do you also have details about the location? Do I have to add a repo server to ANPM?

It's being tested, eg which packages need to be moved from exp to release.
Yes you will have to add a repo to ANPM and it'll need authentication and only available to ArcaOS users. The zip will be freely available.

Oops...LOL, I had assumed that the *.7z file listed in the 45.9 release README was exactly that...is there going to be an additional ZIP file available which follows the old directory structure and not the RPM package one?

Hi Dariusz

You only need to unzip the firefox-45.9.0 directory from the *.7z package to wherever you want if I understand the readme and the *.7z contents correctly.

The Hobbes .zip includes a file RPM_REQUIREMENTS. Most are the same versions a 45.05. I couldn't find in netlabs-rel the new versions for libc, libc-devel (0.6.6-35) and libcx (0.6.0-1), so I kept the previous one. Firefox start but in Help-About it still says 45.5!

Nope, not here, it correctly identifies itself as 45.9...check that you're running the old one by a chance.

Yup, already done...running that right now, seems a bit snappier then the debug versions...or could be just that it's the upgrade of my network speed that just makes it feel like I'm not constantly waiting for FF to do something...LOL!

No, just what ever is extracted from the RPM package. Why I don't know as it is easy to do make package as well as make install.
There isn't much difference between the packaging either.

no libc-0.6.6-35.oc00.i686
no libc-devel-0.6.6-35.oc00.i686

no os2-mpts-0.0.0-2.oc00.i386
no pthread-20151229-21.oc00.i386

Can someone tell me where I can download them?

Hi Roberto,

no hunspell-1.6.2-1.oc00.i686
...
...

So Andreas already provided you with the links to download these, but for future reference, in ANPM the RPM package filenames really translate to just the package name itself, so for example:

hunspell-1.6.2-1.oc00.i686 is simply listed as hunspell

The other part of this is that the firefox specific stuff is supposed to be available in the Arcanoae repository only. This means in ANPM you will not find it under netlabs-rel, it is supposed to be available in arcanoae-rel instead and that means it will be available only to the folks who have purchased the AN Drivers & Software subscription. These at least are the plans as they have been communicated by the FF team, see => https://github.com/bitwiseworks/mozilla-os2/releases/tag/FIREFOX_45_9_0esr_RELEASE_OS2_GA.

This os2-mpts-0.0.0-2.oc00.i386 appears corrupt, I can not unpack it.
This pthread-20151229-21.oc00.i386 no appears.

These two files appear to me as installed, but as more updated. In pthread...i686
Now the problem is another when I try to boot firefox459, it says I couldn't load xul.dll (OS / 2 error 87)

Can you show your directory structure for where you installed FF? XUL.DLL is right in the main directory alongside FF.EXE...so how do you have your LIBPATH set?
