Any chance we can get 2.0.0.5 or 2.0.0.6 G5 builds?

jgleigh, I've just updated the first post to reflect the fact that I'm no longer using Mac OS X and have switched to Linux full time. I'm happy to help anyone else who is interested to build to do so, provided things haven't changed all that much, but I won't be churning G5 optimised OS X builds anymore. Sorry! And thanks for the interest.

I haven't been able to build PowerMac G5 builds after getting my system back up and running (vacuum cleaner did wonders) so I might need some help setting everything back up again.

Ah ok... I just tried building the branch (I still have Mac OS X dual boot on my G5) and have encountered build errors myself. I haven't the time to look at it in detail, but will try to sort this out as soon as I can...

I was just trying to build the FIREFOX_2_0_0_6_RELEASE and I'm sure there's some kind of 64-bit issue. I should try without the G5 tuning stuff. When you stop building for a while it can be a headache getting things working again. I'm struggling with x64 Thunderbird builds too.

I'm away from my G5 now, but you are right. It can be a problem when you have stopped building for a while. I'll try later tonight if I have the time, or maybe tomorrow to figure out what is going on. I tried both the latest branch code as well as the 2.0.0.6 release, both failed with the same error. More results as I know it...

Just an update. I've managed to get it building (lots of changing options and rebuilding), but I seem to have lost SVG capabilities. Will try for a bit more to see if I can get SVG working properly...

Ok, I'm about ready to give up now. Been building and clobbering all day. This is my last working mozconfig, but SVG is still broken...
Code: Select all
. $topsrcdir/browser/config/mozconfig

mk_add_options MOZ_MAKE_FLAGS=-j4
mk_add_options MOZ_OBJDIR=@TOPSRCDIR@/yourObjectDir
mk_add_options MOZ_CO_PROJECT=browser

ac_add_options --enable-strip
ac_add_options --enable-static
ac_add_options --enable-static-libs
ac_add_options --enable-pthreads
ac_add_options --enable-svg

# either of the following works
ac_add_options --enable-optimize="-O2 -mcpu=970 -faltivec"
#ac_add_options --enable-optimize="-O2 -mcpu=970 -faltivec -mno-powerpc64"

# build fails when this is turned on
#ac_add_options --with-macos-sdk=/Developer/SDKs/MacOSX10.3.9.sdk

ac_add_options --disable-debug
ac_add_options --disable-tests
ac_add_options --disable-shared

ac_add_options --without-system-png
ac_add_options --without-system-mng
ac_add_options --without-system-nspr
ac_add_options --without-system-zlib
ac_add_options --without-system-jpeg

This is with 2.0.0.6 release... Good luck to anyone who wants to build!

I was never able to get a successful build so this morning I'm downloading 2.4.1 (I think) of xcode and I'm looking to upgrade the rest of my build environment on the PowerMac. How do you tell which version of xcode you're currently using (I suspect my current version is from 2004 based on the Man pages)?

Do you just install the new version of xcode and it overwrites the old version or do you then have two versions of the software and need to run something to select the version that you want to use?

Not using OSX at the moment, so I'm only going by memory here...

Newer versions of XCode simply overrides the older ones. No problems there. As for finding out which version it is, simply launch the XCode IDE and check from there :) Looking at man pages is not reliable at those dates are only updated when the man pages are, which may not be very often.

I can't upgrade to anything without getting Tiger. I think that I'm going to have to try building on the MacBook Pro under cross-compiler mode. I don't plan to upgrade the PowerMac G5 at this point.
