So, I like to use the Firefox Nightly builds on my machine. The other day I realized that it had been a while since I'd updated, so I went to install the latest FF Nightly code (to build from source with the assistance of the sardemff7 overlay's firefox-9999 ebuild), and everything looked good until I got to a certain point in the build process, at which point the build failed, but did not seem to throw any error. I did some Googling, but was unable to find anything relevant. Any ideas? Build log is here (click "View Raw"): https://gist.github.com/53e5cdade69cd83f77e9.

Best Regards,

It did indeed throw an error. Just search the build log for "error:" and you'll see it. :wink:

Continuing...

After a couple of dependency upgrades and fixes, I got the firefox build to get past that part. However, now I am getting an error for which I can find no other documented cases online:

Code:

Any ideas? I couldn't find much documentation on .def syntax, but from what I could see, there didn't seem to be any glaring errors in general syntax...

If you inspect .def files, do you see lots of comment lies (licensing and so on) starting with ';+#' instead of just '#'? If so, then you have identical problem to mine. This is wrong format for def file, it should be parsed a bit - my version includes instructions on how to, but parsing itself for some reason did not occur, so I had to do it manually :)

Just try
Code:

for i in `find | grep -e '\.def$'`; do mv -v $i $i.orig; cat $i.orig | sed 's/;+//' | sed 's/;;//' | sed 's/ DATA //' | grep -v ";-" | sed 's/;.*/;/' > $i; done

in your mozilla-release directory - solved the problem for me.

It would be interesting to know why it did not get parsed automagically on our systems (mine Ubuntu 12.04), but since I don't need it anymore, I guess I will leave it as it is ;)
