The Unclear Impact

time to build a patched webkit2gtk


@kristof what are you patching? i see some recent CVEs, but it looks like those were announced alongside a release that fixes them a few days ago.

good luck though! i’ve been too intimidated by the larger gnome projects to ever try building them from source 😅

@colin I just tried compiling with because eclipse was crashing too much

it’s pretty trivial on arch, since the build scripts are available in the repo sources, and I just had to add a patch -p1 call

but actually, the arch build servers already built a new version of webkit (maintainers were extra quick, kudos!) with the patch by the time my machine got to about halfway in the build, so I ended up just installing from the repos anyways blobfoxlaughsweat
