Hiya,

A short question about Galeon. I notice that its possible to have mozilla and firefox flagas set when compiling. Are these flags mutually exclusive?

Essnetially I would be grateful if someone could explain whether it is possible to
Code:

emerge -C mozilla
emerge galeon


if I set the following in /etc/portage/package.use

Code:

## Galeon
www-client/galeon firefox

## Firefox
www-client/mozilla-firefox java xprint


will galeon then use firefox as its 'engine' or will it still require mozilla?

I would just go ahead and try it, but mozilla takes sometime to compile hence the desire to avoid recompiling if it will be required.

Cheers,

slack

Yes, you can compile galeon without mozilla by setting USE="firefox".

If you clobber mozilla you might want to set USE="-mozilla" to stop other things trying to use it.

Check the ebuild: /usr/portage/www-client/galeon/galeon-2.0.1.ebuild

Code:
   use firefox && myconf="--with-mozilla=firefox"
   use firefox || myconf="--with-mozilla=mozilla"

So, it would appear that mozilla is required if firefox is not specified. And, galeon does not have a mozilla USE flag (although other packages do).
