I recently installed Debian on my ARM Android tablet. However, I'm having trouble finding a good web browser. I've added the Raspbian repos in addition to the standard Debian repos, but I can't find a web browser to use. The packages of browsers I can install are of very old versions. It seems that nobody compiles ARM versions of popular browsers anymore. I've tried a Ubuntu community version, but it terminates in a seg fault. I've also began to try to build from source, but it always has some missing dependency, and that dependency has its own dependencies, and I end up installing hundreds of packages just to build Midrori, Konqueror, Epiphany, or Chromium. I've also tried Arora, but it also terminates in an error. In desperation I tried this. Any ideas? I'm running Debian Jessie.
Okay, I have found a solution. I added the
ports.ubuntu.com repo and set it to
trusty. It has
armhf ports of most i386 packages available to Ubuntu. It also includes fairly up-to-date versions of Firefox, Chromium, and other packages. Just don't remove the existing Debian repos and use pinning to set this as a lower priority. Works like a charm!
