Mozilla themselves appear to be able to compile and package current
Firefox binaries that work fine on Debian Squeeze and even on CentOS
5.10, so I'm sure it must be *possible* to compile current versions of
Icecat on gNewSense.
Icecat *sources* are available up to current Firefox versions or near
to. Googling compiling Icecat 24 on gNewSense gives me this link
...so I went with version 17.0.1 because Iceweasel 17 is in the Debian
Squeeze backports repository. I will try v24 myself and try to reproduce
@Sam, I'll request an account and modify the wiki page with instructions
for compiling Icecat 17.0.1.
PS: a few months ago, I had never actually compiled any software.
gNewSense use certainly promotes learning :-}
