Gnuzilla is the GNU version of the Mozilla suite.
GNU IceCat is the GNU version of the Firefox browser.
Its main advantage is an ethical one: it is entirely free software.

    IceCat 3.5 .info file

  • If openssl09x-dev is installed, icecat links to the corresponding -shlibs splitoff. If openssl09x-dev is not installed, then the -shlibs is not used.

    Also, if sqlite3-dev is installed, then there is linkage to sqlite3-shlibs. However, if you uninstall sqlite3-dev, then sqlite3-shlibs is not used.

    As is, the current .info file leads to different builds depending on what's installed in the system. You'll need to either 1) explicitly declare a BuildDepends on those -dev packages, or BuildConflicts the -dev packages to make sure the corresponding libraries are not pulled in. The dependencies on openssl09x and sqlite3 don't have to be solved the same way. You're welcome to exclude both, one, or neither as you think is best.

    ps. for future reference when filing new trackers, esp for updates to existing packages, it's helpful to say something like: "new icecat version: 3.5" in the title so that it's easy to see what the tracker item is about.

    Thank you sir for suggestion

    I elected to include sqlite-dev, sqlite-shlibs, openssl098-dev & openssl098-shlibs
    including them will not lead to different builds.

    i have updated the .info file

  • Looks good. I've added it to fink/unstable.

    One thing I noticed is that the java plugin is not the latest version. Would be nice to have the newest version available whenever a new icecat is released.
