min web browser misses electron

hi

I want to install min as web browser. It works great on 64bits version. really great : light and fast.
but it can't be installed on archlinux32 : pacman complains "he" can't find electron.

warning: cannot resolve "electron", a dependency of "min"

Yes, looks like electron build don't run on 32-bit hosts.  It's officially not available here it looks like.  If you want a light and fast web browser, try netsurf, although it's javascript implementation is limited, but it runs on web 1.x sites like this and other bbses just fine.

too bad. min should be removed from repository as it can't be installed.

It is blocked in https://git.archlinux32.org/packages/tr … ectron/min but the package still exists in the repos on the mirror
and in the build database.

Re: min web browser misses electron

It should simplify things for users, and I can't see any reason not to given it will never work.  Additional electron packages I've found are gn-m76 and asar.

Edit: Though to be fair, those are packages for actually building electron, so maybe they're still useful to people who want to try to improve this situation.

Re: min web browser misses electron

ok, done. Also some more packages which were marked as to-be-deleted have been deleted during this run.
Note, that the delete script is not run automatically, because it can cause large damage if too many / the wrong packages are deleted smile - but still, the selection of to-be-deleted packages is somewhat automated (e.g. blacklisted packages, packages not available upstream anymore and not required in arch32 as a dependency)

Re: min web browser misses electron

I wonder, was libmfx listed as to be deleted?  Seems I'm still potentially using it to run firefox, although since I don't generally look at media beyond static photos here I'm not too worried.

Re: min web browser misses electron

hmm, looks, like it was deleted. But I cannot find a reason, why it should be - it's not blacklisted. I consider this a bug in the build scripts ...
