Build Midori From Source

Mon Sep 16, 2013 9:47 am

Can anyone either explain or point me to some instructions on how to build the latest Midori version from source on raspbian? I am quite technical but am pretty new to linux so will need pointers....

Just out of curiosity, why would you want to?

Because I need a newer version than is in the repository. The one in the repository has a bug which means it shuts down after about 3 hours of running a jquery heavy site.

grab source
untar
cd directotry

Still listed as 0.4.3 http://packages.debian.org/search?suite ... rds=midori

ArchLinuxArm though offer latest version "armv6 community midori 0.5.5-1 Lightweight web browser (GTK2)"
Searching is easy, most questions have been asked before !
