rebuilding an already installed package
« on: Fri Sep 26 07:47:44 2014 »
How can I rebuild a package in saravane?  With sekong I change the Pkgfile release= and use pkgadd -u.
I want to rebuild freetype after installing harfbuzz as recommended in the lfs book.

You need to delete the binaries first. It will then produce a new one via

Code: [Select]
pkgmk -u

Hi

As I did report in my last message in this thread http://forums.nutyx.org/index.php?topic=140.0 Xombrero does not work properly any more probably because of the use in the past from GTK2. As Xombrero works very well in Ubuntu 16.04 and probably other distros I am not using myself (arch, gentoo), I suppose there are actualized sources somewhere.

I did never try to compile myself such a complexe package in the past but I would be interesting to learn how to do that.

Is above way a good way to update correctly Xombrero (as representant for more  ;) other packages not up to date any more)?

What is to do?

Kind regards

Xombrero gives segment fault. I did google a bit. It seams to be a know problem but nobody have really found a solution for it.

Like they say, webkitgtk2 is full of leaking memory like a sieve.
My suggestion, switch for another browser for the time been.
