Hi all :)

Remember @ptitSeb 's NetSurf port to the Pandora ?


Well, that browser runs well on the Pyra too :D

I just followed that procedure:


The "ns-pull-install" part failed with an error related to some "cast-align" thing, so I ran:

Code:
export CFLAGS="-Wno-error=cast-align $CFLAGS"

...and then that part completed successfully :)

I decided to give the GTK 3 frontend a try, so I installed the required development files:

Code:
# apt-get install gtk-3-dev

And "make" built a lovely "nsgtk3" binary which starts much faster than Firefox ;)

If somebody knowledgeable about DBPs could make a package for the Pyra that would be really appreciated !

Cheers, Magic Sam

P.S: NetSurf is part of Debian 11 "Bullseye" (but unfortunately not Debian 10 "Buster"):

Hi all,

@levi : yes, that was the expected outcome :) The latest stable release (3.10) would certainly be a better fit for a Pyra package though.

Cheers, Magic Sam
