AA-ron from IRC wanted to try out Gnome with postmarketOS

Recommendation:

  • Submit PRs upstream to get all Gnome-related packages for aarch64/armhf (they are missing currently!), talk to @kaniini for that.
  • Create a postmarketos-ui-gnome package, that configures Gnome with Wayland (similar to postmarketos-ui-weston).

I guess getting gnome-shell on armhf will be quite difficult since their javascript engine doesn't compile on non-x86 platforms (which I found about why its not in alpine)

From reading the backlog, it looks like @opendata26 got it working somehow \o/

To get it to compile I patched a random 6 that appears after running configure in mozjs there is definetly a better solution to this so I'm not making a PR yet it is also fully useable

@drebrez: sounds like you'd only need to rebase @opendata26's gnome branch and then it should work. Bonus points for removing the hack he mentioned and then making it available upstream 😉

@NotKit asked in the chat:

what was the problem with GNOME 3 on aarch64?

I think the problem was related to the JavaScript engine - you could diff his APKBUILDs against the official ones in Alpine to see what he has changed.
