But could you tell me, how did you build the Light? I mean what options did you include? I would like to build mine (I need to be able print, e.g.). Btw, I am a Linux user (if you have different options for different OS's). Thank you in advance.


You can find the available options in configure.in. And you need fix the builds with some options.

Hi

I use PCLinuxOS. I installed today Light 37 smoothly. However, it does not start, showing an error. What could be wrong?
shown below error:

Code: Select all
$ light

(process:5441): GLib-CRITICAL **: g_slice_set_config: assertion 'sys_page_size == 0' failed

Segmentation fault

Is there a forum or technical support IRC for Light?

Thanks,

FraterLinux

I686 RPM versions I've tried and do not work: 36, 36r2, 37r2 by an error segmentation fault.
Libraries loaded by version 37:
Code: Select all
$ ldd /usr/local/bin/light
   libpthread.so.0 => /lib/i686/libpthread.so.0 (0xb770e000)
   libdl.so.2 => /lib/libdl.so.2 (0xb7709000)
   libstdc++.so.6 => /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6 (0xb7616000)
   libm.so.6 => /lib/i686/libm.so.6 (0xb75c9000)
   libgcc_s.so.1 => /lib/libgcc_s.so.1 (0xb75aa000)
   libc.so.6 => /lib/i686/libc.so.6 (0xb73e0000)
   /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0xb774b000)


The 35r3 version fine work in PCLOS:
Code: Select all
$ ldd /usr/local/bin/light
   libpthread.so.0 => /lib/i686/libpthread.so.0 (0xb76d5000)
   libdl.so.2 => /lib/libdl.so.2 (0xb76d0000)
   libstdc++.so.6 => /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6 (0xb75dd000)
   libm.so.6 => /lib/i686/libm.so.6 (0xb7590000)
   libgcc_s.so.1 => /lib/libgcc_s.so.1 (0xb7571000)
   libc.so.6 => /lib/i686/libc.so.6 (0xb73a7000)
   /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0xb7712000)


The i686 RPM of Light is a static compilation to work on any Linux with RPM? Has a terminal command to try to find out why the segmentation fault error? You compiled with that dependencies version 36 and 37 ???

I'm not familiar with linux. light 37 is compiled by gcc 5.0

The 35r3 works. How was compiled? As modified that broke the package in 36 and 37 ???

PCLOS has gcc 4.9.2 package. You could find help in forum advanced Linux user to optimize compilation to work on any linux? Depending on how you do the build will not run on Linux distributions. I am an ordinary Linux user, I do not know how to help him. I liked a lot of Light, very fast, low memory usage. Compatible with ADDONS and functional. I would like to use the new versions as they are released ...

Does Light block attack sites and web forgeries like Firefox?

I am a great fan of your project. My compliments! Light runs smoothly on my machine. I'am running it on a windows 7 machine and it responds much quicker than the fully bloated firefox build.

There is however one thing I would like to ask. It does not remember any username or password of the websites I have to login to. Is that correct? For me, that is a bit awkward. Is it possible to change the configuration in order to make it remember the usernames and passwords? If so, could you give me a hint where to look? Thanks!

Cheers,
Paul

Thanks for the clarification.

I really like Light and appreciate your work

I have one problem however. It does not always remember my session even though I have it set to open previous session. Is this something that can be corrected?
