Testing Firefox 62 on sparc64


Could someone with a desktop installed on their sparc64 box please
test the firefox package from experimental and check whether the
alignment-related crash is still present [1]?

If yes, I will send upstream a patch to fix it or actually try out
my level1(?) commit access to the Mozilla repository that I was
granted half a year ago.

To install, use such a sources.list:

# binary default
deb http://ftp.ports.debian.org/debian-ports/ unstable main
deb http://incoming.ports.debian.org/buildd/ unstable main
deb http://ftp.ports.debian.org/debian-ports/ unreleased main
deb http://ftp.ports.debian.org/debian-ports/ experimental main
# source
deb-src http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ unstable main
deb-src http://incoming.debian.org/debian-buildd/ buildd-unstable main
deb-src http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ experimental main
deb-src http://incoming.debian.org/debian-buildd/ buildd-experimental main


# apt update && apt install -t=experimental firefox

You also should pin down experimental in your /etc/apt/preferences:

Package: *
Pin: release a=experimental
Pin-Priority: 1
