firefox-49.0.1.xzm

Post#1 by Rava » 12 Oct 2016, 06:37

Trying to build the firefox-49.0.1.xzm

Not working. When I ask

Code: Select all

$ ldd /usr/bin/firefox |grep not
$
I get no results, ldd says not a "not found" there, all dependencies okay?

Well, no:

Code: Select all

$ firefox 
XPCOMGlueLoad error for file /usr/lib64/firefox/libmozgtk.so:
libgtk-3.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Couldn't load XPCOM.
Sure I have no such lib on my system and again seems there is no x86-64 version of it.

I only find: libgtk-3-0-32bit-3.14.4-4.1.x86_64 but that means I need 32 bit support and I want a x86-64 only slim system, not a bloated 32+64 Bit, I can start using WitlessOS again when staring with such nonsense....

https://support.mozilla.org/de/questions/1120467 says about FFx 46 that it needs GTK 3.4 or newer. But where is the info what FFx 49 needs, and how to obtain a pure x86-64 version of libgtk-3?
Cheers!

I just download it from here, placed it in the /tmp folder, ran the update-firefox script and it built the package which resulted in a working firefox.

Porteus-v3.2 64bit.

:shock: Wow! Did you need to specify the file name/location to update-firefox?

Does this approach work for the other update scripts also?

I presume this might be the issue since I tried it on 3.1

libgtk.so is included in the gtk+3 package in slackware.. it might be possible to strip it out to use on its own for firefox.. or not...

Since you need an internet connection to update the browser, I use a live system. The script on your computer just downloads a live script from our server. So when I update, you get the update automatically.

Such a script is usually not larger (but rather often: quite smaller) than any html or css file that most webservers deliver anyway, so: no, not really...

That worked indeed:

Code: Select all

# du -m /usr/lib64/libgdk-3.* /usr/lib64/libgtk-3.*
1	/usr/lib64/libgdk-3.la
1	/usr/lib64/libgdk-3.so
1	/usr/lib64/libgdk-3.so.0
1	/usr/lib64/libgdk-3.so.0.800.2
1	/usr/lib64/libgtk-3.la
5	/usr/lib64/libgtk-3.so
5	/usr/lib64/libgtk-3.so.0
5	/usr/lib64/libgtk-3.so.0.800.2
But since 49.0 seems to dislike one of my needed plugins it is not a choice browser anymore...
Cheers!

I downloaded it from your link, placed it in the /tmp/ folder, ran update-firefox script, as root, it built a .xzm module which I copied to my Modules folder. I rebooted to my Fresh mode and no Firefox icon on the taskbar, no Firefox in the Porteus menu.

I am able to start it via a terminal window and it does have the Flashplayer addon.

In my save.dat system the new Forefox does not recognize the Flashplayer addon module.

Thanks bogomips, unfortunately I think my system is more screwed up than that. :(

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ ls /mnt/live/memory/images/f*
/mnt/live/memory/images/firefox-50.0b5-x86_64-1.xzm:
home/  usr/  var/

/mnt/live/memory/images/flashplayer-plugin-23.0.0.162-x86_64-1.xzm:
usr/  var/
guest@porteus:~$ ls -l /usr/lib/mozilla
/bin/ls: cannot access '/usr/lib/mozilla': No such file or directory
guest@porteus:~$ ls -lh /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/
/bin/ls: cannot access '/usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/': No such file or directory
guest@porteus:~$ 
Even switching back to the Firefox beta doesn't help. And at this point Firefox doesn't even show in the menu, I had to starte it via terminal. :(
