Hi,

Reporting that I'm using SeaMonkey 2.7.2 from the LinuxTech repo and everything is working fine. Flash, addons etc all seem to be working without problems.

Seamonkey 2.8 (equivalent to Firefox 11) is now available in the linuxtech-testing repo.

If I don't get any negative feedback it will be moved into the linuxtech-release repo in a few days.

Working well here. I can see how you spent your weekend, certainly more productive than mine, given that graphics card problem.
The job jar says:-
Handbrake 0.9.6 next weekend. wink.gif
Openshot - no hurry mine is working sans problems.

Many thanks.

Actually seamonkey 2.8 was next to no work for me, two minutes to download the latest source and update the spec-file and then 7-8 hours for the PC to build the rpms unattended. smile.gif

Handbrake is definitely not a two minute job...

I looked at Openshot a while ago but there was some reason why I abandoned it again, can't remember now why. I might look at it again sometime.

Seamonkey 2.9 had a bug that prevented it from building correctly on EL6.
Now 2.9.1 is out so I will see if this version hopefully builds correctly.

I assume with the plethora of Firefox updates, SeaMonkey is simply unable to keep up ?
Not surprising really.

Actually Seamonkey 2.10 is out now, I will have a look at it this weekend, I hope they fixed those built issues that made it impossible for me to build 2.9.x on SL6.
Given enough time I might have been able to fix those build issues, but what makes it so hard to troubleshoot SM builds is that each build takes 3 hours on my PC! sad.gif

If anyone has a spare Core i7 with a suitable mobo and a fast SSD to donate to me cool.gif , then I could troubleshoot SM builds much more comfortably (I guess a build on such a system would take 15-30 minutes rather than 3 hours on my 3 year old hard disk based AMD Phenom build PC).

Quick follow-up:

Seamonkey 2.10 seems to be even more problematic to build on SL6.2 than 2.9.x sad.gif

First I had to work around the following bug:
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=761900

And now I'm stuck at:
/usr/bin/python2.6 ../../../../mozilla/config/pythonpath.py ...
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[4]: *** [libxul.so] Error 1

This is all earlier in the build process than the problems I encountered with 2.9.x so I don't even know if those problems still exist too, or not...

I might look further into this but don't hold your breath.

I'm pleased to say that I eventually managed to build a Seamonkey 2.10 RPM for SL6. smile.gif

The 2.9.x build issues no longer exist in 2.10 and the error mentioned in my previous post turned out to be a disk space issue on my build server.

It's currently uploading to the linuxtech-testing repo (only x86_64 for now, i686 will follow later).
Edit: both x86_64 and i686 are now available in the linuxtech-testing repo.

As always, feedback from anyone who tests it is very welcome.

tux99, all is fine but we have this 32 bit adobe reader problem again.
export MOZ_PLUGIN_PATH=/usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins-wrapped
/usr/bin/seamonkey

It's fine after the above commands.

Thank you. http://th166.photobucket.com/albums/u117/rdshear/Smiley%20Faces/th_smiley-face-thumbs-up.gif

U308, many thanks for testing it and spotting the problem, I will look into it.
Also it seems they will release SM 2.10.1 in the next few days so I might fix it in the new release straight away.

Seamonkey 2.10.1 RPMs for SL6 are now available in the linuxtech-testing repo, both 32 and 64 bit.

U308, I have also again fixed the nspluginwrapper path issue (this time hopefully for good), please let me know if the fix works for you.

Hello tux99, tested reasonably thouroughly and all fine incl. adobe reader.
The first two times I opened the mail window Seamonkey quietly quitted, but now after having
opened/closed many times plus checked mail, opened address book etc. that didn't happen again.
Must have been a fluke - nothing in terminal output either. Will keep an eye on it.

Yes, probably some obscure SM bug that only happens in very specific circumstances. I would say it's most likely a bug in the SM code, not due to my packaging (at least I can't think of any reason how the packaging could cause it).

Thanks to the thorough testing done by U308 I now felt confident enough to move the Seamonkey 2.10.1 RPMs to the linuxtech-release repo.

Somebody notified me via email that the current SM 10.1 package in the linuxtech-release repo has a slight bug. Basically the script (/usr/bin/seamonkey) that calls the seamonkey binary isn't passing through command line parameters to the seamonkey binary.
The fix is to add "$@" to the last line of the script.

Basically the last line of /usr/bin/seamonkey should look like this:
on 64 bit:
/usr/lib64/seamonkey-2.10.1/seamonkey "$@"
on 32 bit:
/usr/lib/seamonkey-2.10.1/seamonkey "$@"

This bug only affects you if you want to pass command line parameters to SM.
If you need to pass command line parameters to SM, then please fix the script as shown.

This fix will also be included in the next release of the SM package.

Seamonkey 2.11 (equivalent to Firefox 14.0.1) RPM packages are now available in the linuxtech-testing repo.
I'll move them to the linuxtech-release repo in a few few days unless anyone finds any problem with them.

These packages also contain a a fix for the problem mentioned in the previous post.

Seamonkey 2.12 (equivalent to Firefox 15.0) RPM packages are now available in the linuxtech-testing repo.
I'll move them to the linuxtech-release repo in a few few days unless anyone finds any problem with them.

Feedback about whether it all works or if there are any problems is very welcome as always (U308?).

Sorry, for belated 'testing' of 2.12, had a problem with the links on the forum earlier on; they took an eternity to load. Seems fine now.

Anyway no problems encountered. Pity about the blueish tint to flash videos, but that's a well known problem with flash on Linux with browsers other than chrome which uses the latest
11.3.31.232 'Pepper' flash plug-in.

Thanks tux99.

Thanks for the feedback. The blue hue in flash is a bug in the flash plugin (nothing to do with SM) that can be fixed with an update to libvdpau (it should really be fixed by Adobe, but Nvidia was so nice to release a workaround patch that fixes it too).

I might build the patched libvdpau this weekend now that you reminded me of this, I had looked at this a while ago already so I know what's involved.

Regarding nvidia, you are right, the 304.43 drivers have patched the blue hue thing. I have those on an old Ubuntu. Maybe elrepo will soon have them packaged which means you would not have to bother with libvdpau.

Actually 304.43 is already in ELRepo Testing! If I find time for it I'll try it out later.

Yes, that's the patch, I didn't apply it when I saw it a while ago because I didn't like it, it's a bit clumsy and it only works for Firefox (and probably Seamonkey), not Opera and other browsers using the flash plugin. Mageia (or Mandriva, can't remember) has a patch for the patch that works also for Opera but that patch uses some kernel functionality not present in the EL6 kernel... (I guess you get my drift...)

If the latest nvidia driver solves this that would be much better.

I installed 304.43 but that doesn't fix the blue hue in flash when testing youtube. I think I will still do that patched libvdpau.
