Has anyone actually managed to build 1.13.1008 from source?



  • And if so, is there any documentation (especially troubleshooting) for the procedure?

    Trying with vivaldi-source_1.13.1008.tar.xz, and not getting very far:

    @0001 You're not supposed to be able to build it. The full architecture of the UI and how it marries up to the engine is not in the public domain



  • I think maybe that should be made more clear. :)

    I have problems where Vivaldi won't run on my machine (that could easily be fixed by a compile flag), and have been trying to figure out a workaround for over a year.

    @0001 We have some Linux masters here. What is your OS?



  • @ayespy said in Has anyone actually managed to build this thing?:

    @0001 We have some Linux masters here. What is your OS?

    I am essentially running Gentoo.

    The problem is very well described here:

    And yes, I have filed a bug about it (well over a year ago).

    @0001 A dev said that Chromium/65 code has removed gconf.



  • HALLELUJAH! Been waiting for a gconf-free version of Vivaldi for two years.

    The instant a 65 based snapshot is available, I will download it and switch to it. I am actually still using Opera 12.

    Thank you.
