NetSurf development #2811.
Since I got the ARMX6 I occasionally and unpredictably get the message
"Unable to locate logical address space" when I try to run NetSurf.
Today this happened shortly after a restart, and up till now I have
only used NetFetch and Messenger Pro. FWIW the Next slot is 1024K.
According to Organizer's icon bar organ I have 1.825M free memory, so
it can't be that NetSurf is running out of memory. Can anyone comment
on this, please, and should I submit a bug report?

If a problem font is added to one's RISC OS system after Netsurf has
established its RUfl_cache file, it seems that on next start-up
Netsurf can hang the machine without having given any error
information to help diagnose the problem.
When this happened to me, I'd forgotten that I'd added a font (but in
any case had not suspected it to be faulty), and it wasn't until I
deleted RUfl_cache that the font scanning progress bar could be seen
again and therefore where it stopped immediately before the hang. This
helped identify the suspect font.
Has anyone else had this experience? And could it be considered a bug
that Netsurf can stall so unhelpfully during font re-initialisation?
I would like to try the latest netsurf-browser on my Raspberry Pi. I am using the Raspbian (Debian) distro. I followed the steps on http://source.netsurf-browser.org/netsurf.git/plain/Docs/QUICK-START and build the netsurf browser according to this How-To. In the last step I used:
to build the framebuffer front end.
But, if i try to run the netsurf browser with ./nsfb -v I get following errors:

Am I missing something or do I get the error because of the 3.4 (Dev) version ? Can someone please give me a hint how to fix this ?

I'm happy to report that NetSurf is in the news.
It is featured, with a fairly accurate write-up, in the
'Hot Picks' section of the current issue of the magazine
