Description

19 years ago
I just pulled a fresh CVS tree (Jul 7 99), and tried to build on a Solaris
box. This worked a couple of days ago but now it does not configure anymore.

Any ideas?

I was told that Ramiro knew about this and either already fixed it
or was working on a fix.  Ramiro?

The problem seems to be that -lX11 is not part of the link command.
It looks like $XLIBS isn't set to anything when the X tests are run.
That is, if you look at configure, you see LIBS=-lXext $XLIBS $LIBS,
but all you see in the config.log is -lXext  -lsocket -lnsl, so I
think if XLIBS would just default to -lX11 just for the X lib tests,
then Solaris builds will work again.

BTW: Both of my nightly Solaris 2.5.1 builds (sparc and x86) failed
today because of this problem, so it definitely needs to be fixed.

I just tried it on a solaris 2.6 box and it worked for me.

The way that XLIBS were being set was wrong and I fixed it.  I did make sure it
works on solaris.

I dont have time to look at this anymore right now.

Im taking it off the radar and reassigning to briano.

If you change configure, make sure that TK_LIBS does not change how it currently
works - at least on linux.  Before, there were multiple libs in there, and even
ones that are not needed - like -lXt.

As I expected, this problem turned out to be trivial.  I'm about to
check in (when I get approval) the following one-line change to
configure.in (and configure).  Please let me know if this is a problem.

I moved it back to M8 because without this fix, I can't build and
deliver the nightly Solaris builds to ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/.

First off, I was not able to update from the CVS because it seems like the CVS
is down today. Is that a known problem? I then applied your patch to my
configure.in file to see if that would work. It did not. When I ran configure
again I got this error.

../configure
...
checking for LC_MESSAGES... yes
checking for jpeg_destroy_compress in -ljpeg... no
checking for zlib.h... yes
checking for gzread in -lz... no
checking for png_get_valid in -lpng... no
configure: error:  Could not find the following X libraries:  -lXt


So to sum things up, I do not think this has been fixed. Has anyone
else been able to build on Solaris with this patch applied?

With the most recent CVS this has been fixed.
