sure you get version 10.0.6esr-2+alpha) and get the patch from:
modify the test for __powerpc__ to __alpha__, apply it, and build and
I'll give it a shot at some point over the next few days. Good to hear
from you again. It has been a while...
The fix is working for me. I now have a working iceweasel. Icedove
also needs the same patch; with that I also have a working icedove.
Slightly related to the above, I've *finally* caught up with all the
updates for unstable on Alpha. Haven't done much as far as actually
testing any of it to see if I've still got a working graphical
Gdm/Gnome is broken. Bombs out on my Alpha before it even gets to the
login window. Bug #681195.
KDE is working nicely so I am using that.
Sent from my Alpha -- first message (other than a test message earlier
