SpiderWeb

Post by xeno74 »

Hi All,

SpiderWeb has been released for PowerPC Linux! :-)
Wart Hog Matt wrote: I've been a busy beaver. Here's another UXP based seamonkey-like browser and UXP based thunderbird-like mail/news/rss client for powerpc linux. More info here: https://github.com/wicknix/SpiderWeb/wiki/Download
I compiled SpiderWeb for old Linux distributions for example the A-EON Live Remix DVD and Ubuntu 12.04 or higher today.

It needs GCC 4.9 and the following patch:

Code: Select all

--- a/js/src/jsmath.cpp
+++ b/js/src/jsmath.cpp
@@ -63,16 +63,29 @@
// Older glibc versions don't define SYS_getrandom, so we define it here
# if defined(__x86_64__)
# define GETRANDOM_NR 318
# elif defined(__i386__)
# define GETRANDOM_NR 355
# elif defined(__arm__)
# define GETRANDOM_NR 384
+// Added powerpc architecture:
+# elif defined(__powerpc__)
+# define GETRANDOM_NR 359
GCC 4.9 installation instructions for Ubuntu 12.04:

Code: Select all

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-toolchain-r/test

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install gcc-4.9 g++-4.9

Code: Select all

update-alternatives --install /usr/bin/gcc gcc /usr/bin/gcc-4.9 50
gcc -v

Output:

Code: Select all

gcc version 4.9.4 (Ubuntu 4.9.4-2ubuntu1~12.04)

Code: Select all

update-alternatives --install /usr/bin/g++ g++ /usr/bin/g++-4.9 50
g++ -v

Code: Select all

gcc version 4.9.4 (Ubuntu 4.9.4-2ubuntu1~12.04)
After compiling with ./mach build you have to copy the icudt58b.dat to obj-powerpc-linux-gnu/dist/bin.

Code: Select all

cd mozilla/config/external/icu/data/

Code: Select all

cp icudt58b.dat ../../../../../obj-powerpc-linux-gnu/dist/bin

Code: Select all

./mach run

Code: Select all

./mach package
After that you need to add icudt58b.dat to the SpiderWeb compressed package as well.

Download: spiderweb-2.1.0-ubuntu_12.04-powerpc.tar.bz2

I successfully tested it on a Lubuntu 12.04.0 PowerPC Live DVD and on the A-EON Live Remix DVD today. You need to install the GCC 4.9 and the libatomic1 via the repository 'ppa:ubuntu-toolchain-r/test'.

Code: Select all

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-toolchain-r/test

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install gcc-4.9 g++-4.9

Please test it.

Hi All,

I was able to compile SpiderWeb on Fedora PPC64 after the following commands today.

Code: Select all

grep -r " -m32" *

Code: Select all

:%s/-m32/-m64/g
Download: spiderweb-2.1.0.linux-powerpc64.tar.bz2

It could be, that you have to install some packages for example libffi7 for using SpiderWeb. I successfully tested it on Fedora 27 PPC64 and on openSUSE Tumbleweed 20190722 PPC64 today.

SpiderWeb 2.2.2 is now available
Wicknix wrote: Over the last few months powerpc fixes were added to upstream UXP. You can build any UXP application on ppc now, except you still need to swap the icu.dat file around. So changelog will always be the about same as upstream. https://www.palemoon.org/releasenotes.shtml

Hi SailorMH,

Thank you for testing! You need the symbolic link "libffi.so.6" to "libffi.so.7". Please create this symbolic link with the following command:

Code: Select all

ln -s /usr/lib/powerpc64-linux-gnu/libffi.so.7 /usr/lib/powerpc64-linux-gnu/libffi.so.6
After that please try SpiderWeb again.

Thanks,
Christian
