Thanks.

In fact, wait for a week or something and it will be inside the mozilla overlay.

that overlay is nice, but IMHO it lacks an 9999 ebuild for xulrunner.

Name me one good (and sane) reason for having a xulrunner-9999 ebuild and we will add it to ::devnull.

xulrunner and mozilla-firefox (the full one) can't be installed at the same time

since everything depends on xulrunner in my system this would do serious harm to the environment and would prevent me (and others having a similar configuration) in using their system for several hours productively ? :P

(well, not too bad, isn't it :wink: )

Well, I am aware that both can't be installed the same time. But since the full firefox already includes xulrunner there is no need for a seperate one. With USE="-xulrunner firefox" all apps should compile against firefox rather but this does not work for every package (it should though, blame the crappy ebuilds or gentoo). Imho this whole xulrunner idea is abstract.

i am in the same situation as kernelOfTruth.
at least we 2 would really like to see a xulrunner-9999 package.
maybe discuss with the gentoo mozilla guys why xthe xulrunner ebuilds and useflags were introduced.

Hmm, I am thinking about something like PROVIDES="net-libs/xulrunner" in the firefox ebuild. I wonder if that would work somehow.

I'm trying to emerge it.

So far, xulrunner did compile fine, but mozilla-firefox-3.1beta3 if failling.

Symptom : Some "tar -cf | tar -xf" if filling $PORTAGE_TMPDIR recursively with the same data tree.

Build log show this before the nearly-infinite recursive loop :

./bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/bin/idl/nsIDOMNSHTMLFormElement.idl


And here we go again until a violent [Error 23] (Disk full ..).

What is happenning :
This
Code:
(cd /usr/lib/xulrunner-1.9/bin && tar -cvhf - .) | (cd ../../dist/bin/xulrunner && tar -xf -)

is called before the loop. So let's hunt that :
Quote:
host ~ # ls -alh /usr/lib/xulrunner-1.9/bin
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 23 mars 22 02:16 /usr/lib/xulrunner-1.9/bin -> /usr/lib/xulrunner-1.9/


:x
I'll try to rm the symbolic bin/ link and re-emerge mozilla-firefox.

edit : obviously, it fails again with something like "Nothing to do to provide necessary dependance" from gmake. Damn'it.

There seems to an infinite cycle in the ebuild. The dist/.../../bin is recusrively created until /var/tmp/portage runs out of space. The install, which takes typical 500-600MB, goes all the way upo 1.8G (size of my /var/tmp/portage tmpfs) and dies.

I was able to build beta 3 with most patches from mozilla-overlay applied (a few required small modification and some were already applied upstream). Here's patch to fix infinite loop:

aliquid,

i had the same problem, installing firefox with USE="-xulrunner" was smouth, though.

mozilla-firefox-3.1_beta3 and xulrunner-3.1_beta3 disappeared from mozilla-overlay 8O

edit : ./files/3.1_beta3/ and its patches are still in the overlay.

Yep, my overnight sync picked up beta 3 and I ran into the loop problem. So I re-synced and it was gone. Guess I'll try again in a day or two.

as i said, i have firefox-3.1_beta3 running, since i installed with USE="-xulrunner", but i do not have any plugins. flash, acroread, ... are all gone.
that may be a reason (too) why the ebuild is gone again.

It showed up again this morning. It built and runs just fine with xulrunner. A couple add-ons that were incompatible with beta 2 now work again. I'm posting from it now.

right, revision 169 compiles and runs fine.
what does not work for me are the plugins (flash, acroread, vlc, ...).
do they work for you, ronmon?
i already contacted armin76 and reported the issue.
