I tried to do a seperate objdir build from a read-only source directory. configure runs fine mostly, but at the end I get the following two errors: cp: cannot create regular file `/net/athlete/mozilla/mozilla/nsprpub/config/my_config.mk': Permission denied cp: cannot create regular file `/net/athlete/mozilla/mozilla/nsprpub/config/my_overrides.mk': Permission denied Shouldn't mozilla build from a R/O source (a CD, for example) without error? TIA, Marcus
This is a known problem. Building from a readonly NSPR source tree was never a goal of NSPR's classic build system. However, NSPR also has an autoconf build system. You can use it by passing the --enable-nspr-autoconf option to Mozilla's configure script.

Thanks. Using --enable-nspr-autoconf, everything works fine. I'm closing this bug as invalid
