User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.9.1b2pre) Gecko/20081029 Firefox/3.1b2pre
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.9.1b2pre) Gecko/20081029 Firefox/3.1b2pre

Simple to reproduce. Grab a new source tarball. Use this .mozconfig :

# See for build instructions.

. $topsrcdir/browser/config/mozconfig

mk_add_options MOZ_OBJDIR=@TOPSRCDIR@/objdir-fx

# Options for 'configure' (same as command-line options).
ac_add_options --enable-optimize
ac_add_options --disable-debug
ac_add_options --disable-tests

When I entered make -f depend, it stops saying :

make[3]: /home/fred/logs/fox/src/objdir-fx/js/src/config/nsinstall : command not found.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.See details
Actual Results:  
Build process is stopped.

Expected Results:  
Going on and finish make -f depend step.

The mozconfig you listed and the one in the build log are not the same. You listed a Firefox mozconfig, and the build log is of suite.

Anyway, it broke around the same point. Will post the right log asap.

A workaround is to copy nsinstall to js/src/config, but build process is broken a little later :

js.pp is missing.

Is it a gcc 4.3 bug ? An ubuntu linux bug ? I can't say, but it is annoying to say the least :(

For this another issue, looks like mk_add_options MOZ_OBJDIR=@TOPSRCDIR@/objdir-fx
 from my .mozconfig is ignored.

Could be a clue ?!

Tried another thing, which failed too : using a source tarball I have made before 29 october, ran a make -f depend - which worked - and then updated source code. Launch it again and it crashes at the same point :

/js/src/config/nsinstall cannot be found !

This is driving me crazy :(

A workaround which could find why there is a bug here ?!

1) Go to objdir-fx/js/src/
2) make
3) Go to objdir-fx/config/js
4) /usr/bin/make -C ../../js/src install

Then make -f depend again, it ends the "normal" way.

I don't know if make -f build will end successfully, at least I have a working workaround.
I'm afraid the burden is on you here. All of the tinderboxes are building just fine, and plenty of other people are building without problems. You'll need to figure out what it is in your build configuration that's causing problems.

The problem is that it happened on both an old install of Ubuntu Linux 8.10 (installed from beta) and then a brand new install from yesterday.

Stinks like my computer is broken. 

Tried with both gcc 4.3 (main ubuntu one) and 4.2 (another one) version. And each time it broke at the same place.

Could be an ubuntu 64 bits only problem. Anyway, I found a workaround, so I think I will close it as INVALID. Seems like my linux is guilty here.

Sorry for so much bothering.

Resolution: --- → INVALID
I don't think it's invalid, unless you figure out that there's actually something in your environment that is broken. It's more likely that something in your environment is different and causing the build scripts to not work properly, which we should fix.

It could simple to reproduce : 

1) Install an ubuntu intrepid ibex (AMD64) in a virtual machine.
2) In a console, enter :
sudo aptitude install build-essential libasound2 firefox-dev xulrunner-dev mercurial
sudo aptitude builddep firefox
3) Grab your firefox source code.
4) Build it.

English speaking version of crash log.

For package installation, you should read build-dep instead of builddep.

And crash still happening. Could be an ubuntu intrepid ibex related bug. Got this log with a virtual machine (virtualbox 2.0.4) and following step described before. Will try ubuntu intrepid ibex 32 bits asap.

Modifying some requirements package :

libasound2 -> libasound2-dev

And forgot to add : libogg-dev, libvorbis-dev, libtheora-dev

Oops !

Crash with ubuntu intrepid ibex 32 bits too in a virtualbox virtual machine. Will attach build log.

Well it seems to be broken only when using make -f depend. Using directly make -f build, all is working right. Weird.
