Description:
qt-webkit browsers (arora, rekonq, konqueror w. kwebkitpart) crash on every flash site since the update to 10.1. There is a fix available at https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=40567
Since this makes the browsers unusable with flash enabled, is it possible to backport the fix?
This task depends upon

I don't think this is related to libwebkit. This is an issue with qt-webkit, which is part of the qt package and unrelated to libwebkit. The gtk version of webkit is not affected AFAIK (and in fact the issue it that Flash assumes that gtk is being used, see upstream bugreport)

This also makes spotify crash right at startup

rekonq is working here
Comment by Antonio Rojas (arojas) - Thursday, 29 July 2010, 10:21 GMT
rekonq 0.5 contains an ugly workaround for the issue (that's why it requires gtk). See http://gitorious.org/rekonq/mainline/commit/e1c0bddff81406bbd02ca465e7bd4289cd83bca2

rekonq-git still crashes.

I do not think that I can fix this until qt 4.7

I confirm that this bug is still open.
Any instructions on how to patch the package
with the solution provided by vesath
with a custom pkgbuild?

@arkara: if you're going to recompile you may just compile 4.7, released yesterday. The bug is fixed there.
