Topic: firefox 3.1alpha (shiretoko)

has anybody been able to build the alpha of firefox 3.1 aka shiretoko?

to build it you need to do the following:

/bin/echo "ac_add_options --enable-application=browser
mk_add_options MOZ_CO_PROJECT=browser" > ~/.mozconfig

then set the envirement-variable MOZCONFIG to ~/.mozconfig

type gmake -f build to start compilation.

i get the following error:

../../dist/lib/libnspr4.a(uxproces.o)(.text+0x462): In function `_MD_CreateUnixProcess':
: undefined reference to `environ'

i'm running FreeBSD 7-STABLE.


p.s.: here's a link: … a1/source/

hi there,

i've finally been able to compile and install firefox 3.1. all you have to do is get the firefox 3.1b2 sources and add the following lines to your ~/.mozconfig:

ac_add_options --enable-application=browser --disable-ogg --disable-wave
mk_add_options MOZ_CO_PROJECT=browser

next thing you have to do is edit toolkit/mozapps/installer/ goto line 435 and change "-xtype" to "-type".

that's it. alls you have to do now is ./configure gmake and gmake install.
