Description

6 days ago
So, I'm trying to run SeaMonkey 2.48b1 on an older machine which has just libstdc++ 4.5 installed and get the message "/usr/lib64/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.15' not found" given that only GLIBCXX_3.4.14 is provided by that version of the library.

Thus, we'll need to modify https://www.seamonkey-project.org/doc/system-requirements to "libstdc++ 4.6.1 or higher" and also amend "X.Org 1.0 or higher (1.7 or higher is recommended)" similar what Thunderbird did with https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/52.0/system-requirements/

Note that "PulseAudio" doesn't apply to us given that ALSA is still supported in SeaMonkey builds.

Resynchronize with TB specs

This adapts all requirements and recommendations made in the Thunderbird counterpart, hoping that it is accurately reflecting reality. :-)

It should for 2.49 but not 2.48  :)

Well, experimental evidence shows that at least the libstdc++ part applies to 2.48 already. :-p
I don't see a separate page for TB 51.0b1 to check, so let's assume that it's reasonable.

BTW: 2.46 still runs on that machine, so it's a fairly recent change.

I think 2.48 will still run (crawl) on the Pentium 2. Target milestone for Bug 1324017 and friends was Gecko 53 /SeaMonkey 2.50.

>> GLIBCXX_3.4.15

Btw. I confused this with gtk3 so this part should be accurate as you already found out the hard way.

Update library and memory specs only

> I think 2.48 will still run (crawl) on the Pentium 2.

Sorry, my last Pentium 2 died at least 10 years ago, thus I couldn't check if it still works. :-)
I've removed that change but left the new memory recommendation which probably still applies.

Looks good to me. Stealing review. 

When I changed the requirements the last time I already thought about upping the minimum RAM to 1 GB. Didn't do it because older Linux usually needs less than Windows. But with todays bloated websites you hit 400 to 700 MB for SeaMonkey alone pretty fast  even when not using mail.

Pushed it. Does the website autoupdates itself?
