User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.9.1) Gecko/20090701 Shiretoko/3.5
Build Identifier: xulrunner-1.9.1

Hello!

I'd like to test pyjamas-desktop (http://pyjd.org/) and it requires python-xpcom.

Following instructions at https://developer.mozilla.org/en/Building_PyXPCOM I modified default mozconfig in Arch Linux by adding:

--enable-extensions=python,default

line. The build fails and I've found the same log in

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=436581


Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to build with --enable-extensions=python,default
2. build fails at linker phase
3.

Forgot to mark branch as 1.9.1
Version: unspecified → 1.9.1 Branch

Hi!

After trying ome more time - this time with script-ing the build to get the whole log, I've noticed few interesting lines which might be connected with the build failure:

[...]
creating extensions/python/Makefile
creating extensions/gnomevfs/Makefile
creating extensions/python/xpcom/Makefile
Unknown variable:extensions/python/xpcom/Makefile:55:pyexecdir  = @libdir@/python$(MOZ_PYTHON_VER_DOTTED)/site-packages

Does it help?

Hi!

I managed to build 1.9.1 with --enable-extensions=default,python/xpcom which means that the docs at https://developer.mozilla.org/en/Building_PyXPCOM#Testing_PyXPCOM is misleading saying: 
<quote>
For example, 1.8 branch users could add a line:

ac_add_options --enable-extensions=python/xpcom,default 

Or later versions can add:

ac_add_options --enable-extensions=python,default 

to your .mozconfig file.
</quote>

However, after copying extension to ../python-2.6/site-packages, attempt to import it by: 

from xpcom import components

in python shell, produced:

[gour@nitai xulrunner] python

All in all, thanks to pyjamas & pyjamas-project, python devs now have ability to write-once & run-everywhere their apps, so it would be nice if python-xpcom would receive some more love. ;)

Hi!

I managed to proceed and learnt that the build which I did actually works.


However, it would be nice to have up-to-date docs how to build 1.9.x branch.

(Not familiar with technical details of the python bridge, just triaging core:general bugs. That said...)

1) Is this different from bug 472649?
2) Please feel free to improve documentation on developer.mozilla.org!
Component: General → PyXPCOM
Product: Core → Other Applications
QA Contact: general → pyxpcom

Yeah, it could be.

In any case, I do not have this issue any longer when running xulrunner-1.9.2.

Moreover, no need to build it manually 'cause my distro is packaging xulrunner with extensions enabled.

This can be closed.

Gour
