Haha, cool.

What kind of problem with Firefox?

I was wondering, should using a different SDK improve Camino performance? Or does it just change the speed of building? Or something else? (Other than the required OS version that is)

20-30 times each day the keyboard shortcuts and context menu becomes unresponsive.
Meaning, I cant copy/paste between tabs or "Open Link in New Tab".

Its been like this for a while, but the last 2 weeks it getting worse. Today I gave up!

I think it might speed it up a little bit, not sure at all though.

I imagine that since I'm using target 10.4 and 10.4 SDK I get code that are even more optimized for my current OS. Using 10.3.9 SDK will create backward compatible code, which might slow it down.
Anybody correct or back me up please! ;)

Build time on my 1.5GHz PowerBook G4 -> around 1hour 15min.

Hmm, interesting. I'll have to give it a whirl to see how it feels.

With a distclean? Or on average? That seems like a long build time if it's not including a distclean...

Thats with a clean MOZ_OBJDIR. From I start my shellscript until its finished.
* Check if tinderbox is green, orange or red (proceed if green).
* CVS checkout (incremental checkout, not from scratch).
* Build Camino.
* Create Disk Image and copy Camino.app to it.
* Compress Disk Image.

Whats your build time, and what hardware do you run?

Well, Phoenix2005 does the builds on a 1.5ghz Powerbook G4 with 1gb of ram (I don't build them). I think (not sure) his usual build time is around 30 minutes, and like 1 hour and 20 minutes with a distclean.

He have the exact same setup as me (1.5GHz, 1GB Ram, 5400 rpm hdd).
The build times seems to be simular as well. Thank god!

powerbook, some friendly advice: the 10.4u and 10.4.0 SDKs aren't currently recommended for Camino because of bug 299949. You should experience no difference in performance between the 10.4u, 10.4.0, and 10.3.9 SDKs.

Mento. I am aware of the bug, but I am willing to stay with 10.4u SDK anyway.
* I dont have a scrolling trackpad on my PowerBook.
* Somebody should compile to 10.4u to test it. Maybe there are other problems as well?
* There are no need for my build if I build with 10.3.9 SDK, since Phoenix2005 already do so.

I appreciate what you do for the Mac community. As without your help we would probably not been able to build Camino and Firefox on 10.4 yet. Thanks! :)

We all have to take out share in making Camino an even better browser!
I am used to live on the "bleeding edge" (Firefox Trunk), so I am pretty sure I know how to handle it.

See, we're all used to Camino nightlies being rock solid; it's good to have someone with experience with less-than-solid ;) nightlies around to really jump ahead into uncharted territory :D

He he. I hope my builds come out rock solid.
But if not, I'm prepared to deal with the eventual problems.

Now I'm heading towards this bug, with patch from mento:
300947 - Use ld -dead_strip for Camino
This seems to drop 1.5MB from the static executable and 0.5MB from the download package.
I'm not pushing it on anyone (yet).

Return to Camino
