Summary: mozilla.dev.builds - November 10th to November 17th 2006

  • November 11th: Bryan Wellander is trying to build Mozilla 1.7.13 using Yellowdog Linux 4.1.
However he has been unsuccessful and gets the following errors:
checking for GTK - version >= 1.2.0... no
Could not run GTK test program, checking why...
The test program failed to compile or link. See the file config.log 
for the exact error that occured. This usually means GTK was incorrectly 
installed or that you have moved GTK since it was installed. 
In the latter case, you may want to edit the gtk-config script: /usr/bin/gtk-config
configure: error: Test for GTK failed
Bryan is asking for help as he is confused and has no idea what is causing the build process to fail.


There was a power outage at his office and the machines, which are responsible for running autoconf (configure.in -> configure), located in his office failed to boot up after power was restored.
The machine in his office are now back up. He also warns that there will be another outage which will cause the servers in his office as well as all tinderboxes to go down.


  • There were no meetings this week.
