I'm posting <a href="http://smartasfuck.com/mozilla/">unofficial nightly builds for MacOSX</a> until the official ones get back on track. These are getting posted right after they are built, and I'm not saving any of the previous builds, so backup your working version before trying these out.

Update:
I just <a href="http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=216908">filed a bug to get configure.in fixed</a>. That should clear up a bunch of confusion about getting this to build without linking with /sw/lib/libiconv.dylib.

Should this be a sticky?

Well...I am using your "Unofficial Nightly Build" of FB as my default under OS 10.2.6. You have done an excellent job with this version of FB. It's nice to be able to keep pace again with other platform versions of FB. Thanks for filling a real need for this Mac FB user. :badgrin:

Tentative sticky. Will drop it once we have official nightlys again.

Since my mac is getting repaired and I'm stuck on my pc, I cant wait to try out this build of firebird, I'm on a 28.8 connection and it's about time there's a build (official or unofficial) that's under 10MB

Don't get your hopes up to high, though. I just realized that I built it dynamic, so it won't work if you don't have fink and the dependencies install. Look for a new static (and larger) version soon.

It's nice to be able to run nightlies again, specially now that MacFB bugs start being fixed again.
I think this hasn't been stressed enough yet, so here we go: <b>thank you very much</b> for your CPU cycles and bandwidth!

In have Fink installed and your latest 20030807 (dated 11 Aug on your "sticky" page) works nicely. I especially like the implementation of the "Advanced Preferences Frame" for the Mac; including: SSL and TSL, as I am trying FB for various transactions requiring these security layers. Thanks again for your efforts, they are appreciated! :D

It would appear that saving images in the earlier version you posted is broken, I'll be trying the new version shortly.

Edit: Yep, still no image save-as. :(

Edit Edit: It appears there's a new version up :)

First of all, I'd remove these two lines from your .mozconfig, as they aren't necessary

ac_add_options --enable-macos-target=10.2
ac_add_options --enable-default-toolkit=mac

also the enable-static line..

After you build, you have to package it for distribution. You do this by doing "make" in xpinstall/packager. When I did this I had to edit the Makefile to get it to work. Open the "Makefile" file and replace all instances of "mozilla-bin" with "MozillaFirebird-bin". Then do a "make" in that directory. It will fail and generate an error, but it fails *after* it has built the application. It'll leave a "Mozilla Firebird" application in the dist/mozilla directory that should contain all libraries, not just the shortcuts. This is a hack, but it seems to work :)

Edit: Here's the relevant Bugzilla bug

Yes, I was able to get this working, thanks. I was just doing a cp -rL, which seems to work fine also.

I'll see what I can do to make a patch for this.

Sorry I screwed up the release date! It should be: 20030820! (I got too excited!) LOL!

I was unable to get this to work. I went into the Makefile in xpinstall/packager and changed two references of "mozilla-bin" to MozillaFirebird-bin" and did a make. It said something about could not get file via rsync and gave an error. The file dist/MozillaFirebird.app was still the one without the libraries. Any ideas?

Thanks,
Jeff
