Hello again GuixSD-ers

thanks for the last fast response! Now I face another question due to:

I actually tried installing the IceCat package but my laptop got hang. It
was heavily virtualizing so I looked up hardware requirements for
building Firefox. I learned that 8GiB RAM (and therefor 64bit system) are
required. So this makes this package unbuildable for me.

Is there any solution for that case in general? I fear persons like me who
can't efford hardware like that need to wait until a prebuild is available.

Thanks in advance and thumbs up for your project!
