Hi, I am attempting to build Firefox 24.8.1 (I know it's an old version, but I do have a reason) using GTK3, but I have hit a snag. I've searched all over Google, but to no avail so far. Below is the error I receive, could anyone give me a few pointers? Build environment is a x64 CentOS 7 VM. I am able to build a GTK2 version in this VM without issues. Any help would be appreciated, thanks in advance!

Code: Select all
/home/geobr/ffsrc/widget/gtk2/nsDeviceContextSpecG.cpp: In member function ‘virtual nsresult nsDeviceContextSpecGTK::EndDocument()’:

I think you use a gcc compiler newer than 4.6?

So you will come across some compatible issues, you can decrease your gcc edition or add the compiler switch -fpermissive to your compiler flags.

Yes, I'm using GCC 4.7.2 (same as I used with my gtk2 build).

Would adding this to my .mozconfig work?
Code: Select all
export CFLAGS="-fpermissive"
export CXXFLAGS="-fpermissive"

Sorry for the noob question, but I appreciate the help!
