I am having problems getting Seamonkey 2 and 188.8.131.52 to run on Slackware 12.2. I have tried the packages for 12.2 in patches/packages/ and the package from the seamonkey website, both with identical results
Seamonkey appears to start, and does appear in the process list, however no windows appear and it uses little memory and no CPU cycles. No messages appear in the console if I start it from there. I have to kill the processes (seamonkey , run-mozilla and seamonkey-bin).
I have tried removing my Seamonkey profile, with the same results.
If I try to build the slackbuild I get this error:
checking for cairo >= 1.8.8 freetype2 fontconfig... Requested 'cairo >= 1.8.8' but version of cairo is 1.6.4
configure: error: Library requirements (cairo >= 1.8.8 freetype2 fontconfig) not met; consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your libraries are in a nonstandard prefix so pkg-config can find them.
configure: error: ./configure failed for mozilla
/usr/bin/gmake -C mozilla default
gmake: Entering directory `/tmp/comm-1.9.1/mozilla'
gmake: *** No rule to make target `default'. Stop.
gmake: Leaving directory `/tmp/comm-1.9.1/mozilla'
make: *** [default] Error 2
The version of Cairo I am running is the standard Slackware 12.2 version cairo-1.6.4-i486-1.tgz , which to my knowledge, has never been updated (there is nothing in /patches/packages for it, anyway).
Has anyone else had similar issues with Seamonkey and Slackware 12.2 and how did you resolve them?
