heftig's nightlies: Firefox Dev Edition, Freetype, and more

Usage

To access the repository, add the following to /etc/pacman.conf:

[heftig]
SigLevel = Optional
Server = http://pkgbuild.com/~heftig/repo/$arch
Contents
  • firefox-developer-edition: (formerly aurora): Testing version of the popular Firefox web browser
    - Maintains a separate installation and profile from Firefox, so you can install and run both

  • freetype2-git: Freetype builds from Git master

  • pavucontrol-git: PulseAudio Volume Control from Git master

  • pulseaudio-git, libpulse-git: PulseAudio from Git master
    - Contains debug symbols

  • stone-soup-git: Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup builds from Git master

Notes
  • Packages built from version control systems (such as Git or Mercurial) are usually checked for updates nightly and rebuilt when needed

  • Because repository updates are automated, packages are not signed

  • Deltas are provided for all packages

  • Full package sources are available at http://pkgbuild.com/~heftig/packages/

Linux ZEN

The linux-zen package was moved to the official Arch repositories.

linux-zen: ZEN Kernel (https://github.com/zen-kernel/zen-kernel)
- Configuration close to the regular linux package
- Defaults to YeAH for TCP congestion control
- Defaults to BFQ as storage scheduler
- Tweaks and fixes to improve usability and interactivity for desktops and laptops
- Includes KDBus built-in (boot with kdbus=1 to test: systemd wants bug reports!)
- Ships AUFS3
- Contains additional drivers: VHBA (for cdemu), Thinkpad SMAPI (tp_smapi)

Thanks for this. The nightlies don't play well with fonts since they're not built against local libraries, so this is perfect. I added your repo to https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Un … positories as well, if you don't mind.

Aurora is now built with PGO (Profile Guided Optimization).

Thanks heftig!

Aurora is excellent, but I can't for the life of me get it to open links from the terminal by default. Firefox used to work fine.

How do you do that? urxvt with urxvt-perls-git? Maybe it would help if you show your ~/.Xdefaults

Re: heftig's nightlies: Firefox Dev Edition, Freetype, and more

Ah, my bad. Here's my .Xdefaults: http://paste.pocoo.org/show/414424/

I changed URxvt.urlLauncher:      firefox to aurora but no go.

I've searched for another solution but none of them work sadly. It's not a big deal at the end of the day, just a shame since I'm going to using Aurora as default.


Edit: Nevermind, I got it working now. My .Xdefaults look like this now: http://pastebin.com/ZgCA00y8

You rock heftig. I had been lamenting about not being able to use aurora in arch because of the horrible font rendering in the firefox-bin packages and someone linked me to this repo. Your aurora package is excellent smile

@heftig: Thanks for your packages and the repo. FWIW shouldn't aurora be named as firefox-aurora to be clear (or more specific) to the user.

Re: heftig's nightlies: Firefox Dev Edition, Freetype, and more

Sorry that was my mistake. I had just updated the firefox official repo package to 5.0 in my system and got that confused with the aurora package.

aurora is now at 7.0a2, which means it has that fabled memory fix.

Iinstaled your zen-kernel and it works nicely, and with bfq too! Just booted without nvidia into it and then installed nvidia-zen without a hitch. Great!

Hey Heftig! Your new 3.0 zen kernel made my Hauppauge 1300 DVB-T card work again! And my internal Nvidia NIC (forcedeth) !! Neither of them has been working since kernel 2.6.37 despite all kinds of hacks from my side. Great! Thanks for the good work!

@heftig: I have just discovered your repo today. Really fantastic!!!. Could you please build your ZEN kernel with aufs3? Staying on the egde always feels good, man

Thanks.

EDIT: As far as I understand, ZEN patches are applied to bare kernel so if I want to include aufs3 in ZEN patches, I should make request to ZEN developers. Not you, not here. Sry for my ignorance.

thanks for the great packages, heftig!
On zen-kernel.org I see it says Zen-sched which includes BFS is included, but in the first post you said CFS is used, does the package has support to BFS stuff?

Not sure if this is the right place to ask, but as pkgbuild.com is being used for another purposes [1] and the repo doesn't seem available anymore, Is there any other url that we can use for the repo?
