small firefox 3.5 / Seamonkey 2.0 update - Page 1

Hi all,

Rich and i are still busy with Seamonkey 2.0 / Firefox 3.5 port. Hopefully i can get it done soon, so i can test the nspr pthread problems i discovered when running the 3.0.15 build.

We're helping eachother with compiler/C++ tips via email. He actually fixed a generic problem with header instantiation where templates and forward declarations are involved. i have to revisit my 3.0.15 patch and rework some of them.

Oh and '-Zf,_330 -ptused' in CXXFLAGS proves to be more robust than the generic options. The 3.3 Cfront frontend bypasses some dodgy g++-isms.

Hang in there guys! Holiday season is hitting us hard so there isn't much happening in terms of cool software projects and on top of that, my build machine rootdisk is giving errors so i have to duplicate that disk soon.

cheers,

Dex

Firefox 3.5.6 patch file and first build is done. Running it gives me various runtime assertion failures:

Again i'm using lots of precompiled gtk+ glib stuff and gettext is giving me problems in circular dependencies, but atleast i have something to go on.

Let's attempt an optimized build first and also backport some stuff into Firefox 3.0.15, but i'm not going to spend much time there since the 3.0.x tree will be shelved pretty soon in favor of 3.5.x and the new 3.6.x trees

any progress?
Every now and then FF/SM alert about available updates ... while we IRIXers are still stuck with FF2.0/SM1.1.
I wish you´d succeed in doing your port before the "amigafication" process of IRIX progresses too far 8-(

Unfortunately, the Mozilla team seems to let lots of interesting things fall by the wayside. They're currently dropping support for Mac OS X 10.4 despite Firefox 3.X having on the order of 1.5 million 10.4 users, many of which are probably running G3 machines with no 10.5 upgrade path.

Hi folks,

Firefox 3.6 has a lot of glibc-isms, which i'm trying to iron out. 3.5.7 is running, but assertion failures prevent it from opening windows, or so i think. In SeaMonkey 2.0.1 i still have a dependency problem to solve. 3.0.17 is ported and running but still suffers from a bug in nspr/pthread.

I'm currently over my ears in attending classes and doing homework, not to mention finishing a new PC build at home (first in 7 years). I was hit by a nasty VBIOS bug in the newest Radeon card i bought, which underclocked the GPU too low. This prevented me from running Ubuntu and Windows 7, though in games it was fine :roll: . Fortunately a VBIOS flash from Sapphire Tech fixed it.

Anyway, i'll try to keep up with some builds going the next few days.

Yours,

Dex

One of them would be me... I was actually surprised that 3.6 installed on my G3 :? . Do you have a pointer to some discussion or suchlike about dropping support? I was looking for it once 'cause I've heard this before, but failed to find it...

Sure, here's a CNet article on the decision which also has links to the relevant posts on the developer's mailing list:

The Mozilla people are really nice. I like them a lot :roll:

I will bet $100 cash money that the version that drops support for 10.4 is not 30% faster and that claim is just another Mozilla Corp Big Fat Lie.

Thanks - my search skills seem to suck sometimes... :roll: Looks like I have to come up with a plan for the G3 at some point - but then again, Apple's support for 10.4 is also limited (or gone already? I once searched for a life cycle policy on Apple's site - and failed to find it <sigh> ), so security updates aren't forthcoming, anyway. :(

Apple can be almost belligerent when it comes to providing even basic software life cycle information. Whenever I've had conversations with people in their enterprise computing organization, I've told them that's a big problem for enterprises.

For the moment, although 10.4 itself hasn't gotten any updates since last year, Apple seems to be updating things like Safari and iTunes on 10.4.

The current versions of Opera and iCab still support 10.3 :!: , so perhaps future versions of those browsers will support 10.4 for quite a while, but I haven't looked into that.
I know there isn't much love for Flash, but they will also be dropping G3 support after 10.1:
Quote:
Note: The Adobe Flash Player 10.1 release, expected in the first half of 2010, will be the last version to support Macintosh PowerPC-based G3 computers. Adobe will be discontinuing support of PowerPC-based G3 computers and will no longer provide security updates after the Flash Player 10.1 release. This unavailability is due to performance enhancements that cannot be supported on the older PowerPC architecture.

FYI, the last G3 (iBook) was discontinued in October 2003.

Your point being? :) I find the G3 iMac still a good looking, compact and - for simple standard tasks - capable machine. And it is very quiet, given the right hard drive. Age doesn't come into it (heck, who am I kidding - I wouldn't be in this forum otherwise...)... :D Ah well, it's still good for another year or two - unless the CRT dies, of course...

A FastMac [email protected] Upgrade does a good job in one of my Apple iMac DV G3/400s with Tiger 10.4.
Feels faster than a 600MHz Fuel ... and, back to topic, is capable of running decent browser versions.

Interesting... But the price... :shock: For that amount of money I could get a complete G4 iMac around here these days... :mrgreen:

Yes, agreed: the G4 upgrade costs as much as 2-3 DV400 iMacs. I also put 1GB RAM and a 500GB hard disk in it ...
From a computer-performance-per-buck point of view, this is total nonsense. But I´m a collector of vintage machinery (sgi addict :) .

I´d always prefer a vintage Mercedes (especially a powerful one) over a decent Volkswagen, Audi, Toyota or whatever.
