I get an unmet dependency:

netsurf: Depends: lcms >= 1.18-i486-1

(we have lcms 1.16 in the repo)

Get "Excluding netsurf due to dependency failure" using Gslapt on VL5.9 std.

I've downgraded lcms on my system and I will rebuild the package.

In the meanwhile go ahead and install lcms 1.16 and lemon 3.6.1.  netsurf will then work correctly.

Thanks for the update, caitlyn & exeterdad.
Works just fine.

Only one problem: the exec line in the .desktop file says "opera".

ROFL!  I hate that :D
Stay tuned for build 3. I'm sure caitlyn will never be content with that.

Grrr... I corrected that but must have used the old desktop file in build 2.  Yeah... I'll upload build 3 later tonight.

Third times the charm right? This is exactly why we have a testing repo.  We packagers are only human. I/we appreciate all the feedback people. Without it, our "testing" repo remains overflowing, and we are stuck with "dusty" packages in "extra", or no new packages in there at all.

Anyhow, caitlyns new build is in testing. Please refresh your sources and try again?

Installed via Glsapt great.

Runs great on my VL5.9 Standard.
The look is comfortable and seems familiar.  I'm using now to post. Not caitlyns fault, but I see javascript text all over the place. Could take some getting used to for me.

It doesn't handle javascript gracefully at all.  LIke Dillo this broswer definitely has limitations but it's a relatively fast alternative for people.  Unfortunately I can only fix package issues, not bugs or deficiencies in the software.

This one works fine, and the icon shows up in the menu (as expected).
Great. Thank you!
