Vec:  I was getting to a 5.9 release announcement.  I work on one repo at a time.  Otherwise my little brain gets confused ;D

Thanks again.

I'm getting a dep error attempting to install this:

Code: [Select]
mozilla-firefox: Depends: freetype >= 2.3.7
Freetype 2.3.7 doesn't seem to be in the 6.0 repo.  ;D I was just about to package it, having only done the 5.9 version so far....

If you're packaging the relevant version of freetype I'm going to leave this package in place and just wait on your new freetype package.

 :( Sorry. Just tried again after installing my new freetype build. I'm getting another dep failure:

Code: [Select]
mozilla-firefox: Depends: gconf >= 2.19.1
Don't really understand that one - I do have the gsb repo enabled.

I won't be able to look into this until after the Rosh Hashana holiday.  Hopefully Vector can look into it in the meanwhile.

The browser is working fine on my VL 6 installation. Things have been very busy around here and I don't remember if I got those dependency messages.
