Build News

Monday March 13th, 2000

We've gotten a few bits of news which we decided to lump together into one news item. First, Jim Bray has written up a doc, "Mozilla on Linux circa 03/10/00", written using Mozilla's "Composer". It details his experiences with the build, and contains some suggestions if you plan on building Moz yourself.

Next, Ruairi Hickey writes in to say that the Mozilla instability problem on Linux SMP systems (bug 21556) seems to have gone away, so give it a spin.

Finally, Sebastian Spaeth writes in to say that the crypto hooks are now in the nightly builds. You still need to grab the PSM package. If you grab it once, on later Mozilla builds you should only have to browse to it on your local drive to get it to work.

You dont need to build the debug version. Add a file .mozconfig to the mozilla directory containing

ac_add_options --disable-tests ac_add_options --disable-debug ac_add_options --enable-optimize ac_add_options --enable-mathml

You dont need the last line - but if you do, then you get mathml to play with to!

This builds in about 200 (300??) M.
