Closed Bug 406085 Opened 14 years ago Closed 14 years ago
Build toolchain (1 .2)
We need to get an updated MozillaBuild out. We've got some fixes on trunk, and we should get just a few more fixes in and then release. We'll punt MSYS updates and some other things to the next version.
This is blocking 346214. There was no time to fix for beta2, but this is a blocker for beta3.
RC is up at: http://people.mozilla.com/~tmielczarek/MozillaBuild-1.2rc.exe Ben and I are building with it to test, would appreciate additional testing, especially for VC9 and the start-l10n.bat.

I don't know that I'd hold up for that, I'll give you a day to try to sort it out. :-)

Depends on: 409260
Mass re-assign of MozillaBuild bugs into mozilla.org:MozillaBuild
Given bug 409260 we're not going to release this rc. Also seems to have a bug with cvs checkout, winding up with multiple recursive copies of the source tree under mozilla/build/autoconf.
Strong suggestion: update to latest version (v4.57) of 7-Zip. It takes better advantage of multi-CPU machines, so the compression is faster. Mild suggestion: use a more recent version of the NSIS installer. Not *the* latest, though, because versions after 2.29 don't like the Firefox script (at least not for branch builds).
Link to rc2: http://people.mozilla.org/~bhearsum/Build/MozillaBuild/MozillaBuild-1.2rc2.exe I just checked out, built, and created an installer without issue on Vista with VC8 Express. It should be noted that start-msys*.bat must be run as Administrator on Vista.

We're not taking anything more in MozillaBuild 1.2. We'll take suggestions for 1.3 though. FWIW, 1.2 includes NSIS 2.33 with unicode support (alongside the version currently shipping with MozillaBuild 1.1)
