Introduction to XULRunner

XULRunner is a Mozilla runtime package that can be used to bootstrap XUL+XPCOM applications that are as rich as Firefox and Thunderbird. It will provide mechanisms for installing, upgrading, and uninstalling these applications. XULRunner will also provide libxul, a solution which allows the embedding of Mozilla technologies in other projects and products.

Creating a .mozconfig

The .mozconfig file contains the options that will be used to build firefox.

The first line includes the default configuration for compiling and the second line determines where the build objects are going to reside.

Having --with-system-nss and --with-system-nspr does not mean you *HAVE* to have a system installed version of nss and nspr. It makes the build system prefer to use the system installed version of nss and nspr over the internal version.

--enable-canvas enables support for the <canvas></canvas> tag.

--enable-svg enables support for rendering svg files.

--disable-tests prevents test programs from being built which saves a lot of disk space and time.

--disable-installer prevents the installer from being built.

ac_add_options --enable-safe-browsing
ac_add_options --enable-svg
ac_add_options --enable-system-cairo
ac_add_options --enable-system-sqlite

If you would like dual monitor support, append your your .mozconfig with the following:

cat >> .mozconfig << "EOF"
ac_add_options --enable-xinerama
EOF

If you would like to render fonts with Pango, append your your .mozconfig with the following. This can significantly slow font rendering.

cat >> .mozconfig << "EOF"
ac_add_options --enable-pango
EOF

If you do not have JDK installed then add the following to your .mozconfig:

cat >> .mozconfig << "EOF"
ac_add_options --disable-javaxpcom
EOF

Non-Multilib

Fix a handful of compilation errors with gcc4:

sed -i '1i\#include <stdio.h>' toolkit/crashreporter/google-breakpad/src/common/linux/dump_symbols.cc &&
sed -i '1i\#include <stdio.h>' toolkit/crashreporter/google-breakpad/src/client/linux/handler/exception_handler.cc &&
sed -i '1i\#include <stdio.h>' toolkit/crashreporter/google-breakpad/src/client/linux/handler/minidump_generator.cc

There are several incompatibilities with GCC 4.6. If you get compile errors about nsEnumeratorUtils.cpp:115:27: error: uninitialized const EmptyEnumeratorImpl::kInstance then you need to get a patch from here: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=623126

Compile the package:

make -f client.mk build

Install the package:

make -f client.mk install

Some applications rely on headers which have moved. Create symlinks to accommodate these:

ln -sv npfunctions.h /opt/xulrunner-1.9.1.16/include/xulrunner-1.9.1.16/stable/npupp.h
ln -sv npfunctions.h /opt/xulrunner-1.9.1.16/include/xulrunner-1.9.1.16/unstable/npupp.h

50-xulrunner.sh

If you're using the Bash Startup Files create an addition for firefox with the following commands, otherwise make sure the enviornment variables are set in your profile:

cat > /etc/profile.d/50-xulrunner.sh << "EOF"
# Begin /etc/profile.d/50-xulrunner.sh

export PATH="${PATH}:/opt/xulrunner-1.9.1.16/bin"
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH="${PKG_CONFIG_PATH}${PKG_CONFIG_PATH+:}/opt/xulrunner-1.9.1.16/lib/pkgconfig"

# End /etc/profile.d/50-xulrunner.sh
EOF

Multilib

32Bit

Fix a handful of compilation errors with gcc4:

sed -i '1i\#include <stdio.h>' toolkit/crashreporter/google-breakpad/src/common/linux/dump_symbols.cc &&
sed -i '1i\#include <stdio.h>' toolkit/crashreporter/google-breakpad/src/client/linux/handler/exception_handler.cc &&
sed -i '1i\#include <stdio.h>' toolkit/crashreporter/google-breakpad/src/client/linux/handler/minidump_generator.cc

Use the following command to append your .mozconfig with 32bit specific flags:

cat >> .mozconfig << EOF
export CC="gcc ${BUILD32}"
export CXX="g++ ${BUILD32}"
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH="${PKG_CONFIG_PATH32}"
export USE_ARCH=32
ac_add_options --host=$CLFS_TARGET32
ac_add_options --build=$CLFS_TARGET32
mk_add_options CONFIG_GUESS=$CLFS_TARGET32
EOF

Adjust some hardwired paths for arch-dependent config files:

sed -i 's/gre\.d/&-32/g' $(grep -lr 'gre\.d' *)

x86

Compile the package:

make -f client.mk OS_TEST=x86 build

Install the package:

make -f client.mk OS_TEST=x86 install
mv -v /opt/xulrunner-1.9.1.16/include/xulrunner-1.9.1.16/unstable/js-config{,-32}.h
mv -v /opt/xulrunner-1.9.1.16/include/xulrunner-1.9.1.16/unstable/mozilla-config{,-32}.h

ppc64

Compile the package:

make -f client.mk OS_TEST=powerpc build

Install the package:

make -f client.mk OS_TEST=ppc install
mv -v /opt/xulrunner-1.9.1.16/include/xulrunner-1.9.1.16/unstable/js-config{,-32}.h
mv -v /opt/xulrunner-1.9.1.16/include/xulrunner-1.9.1.16/unstable/mozilla-config{,-32}.h

64Bit

Fix a handful of compilation errors with gcc4:

sed -i '1i\#include <stdio.h>' toolkit/crashreporter/google-breakpad/src/common/linux/dump_symbols.cc &&
sed -i '1i\#include <stdio.h>' toolkit/crashreporter/google-breakpad/src/client/linux/handler/exception_handler.cc &&
sed -i '1i\#include <stdio.h>' toolkit/crashreporter/google-breakpad/src/client/linux/handler/minidump_generator.cc

Use the following command to append your .mozconfig with 64bit specific flags:

cat >> .mozconfig << EOF
ac_add_options --libdir=/opt/xulrunner-1.9.1.16/lib64
export CC="gcc ${BUILD64}"
export CXX="g++ ${BUILD64}"
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH="${PKG_CONFIG_PATH64}"
export USE_ARCH=64
EOF

Note

For PPC64, CFLAGS and CXXFLAGS may neeed to include -mminimal-toc to avoid automatic multiple TOCs.

Adjust some hardwired paths for arch-dependent config files:

sed -i 's/gre\.d/&-64/g' $(grep -lr 'gre\.d' *)

Compile the package:

make -f client.mk build

Install the package:

make -f client.mk install
mv -v /opt/xulrunner-1.9.1.16/include/xulrunner-1.9.1.16/unstable/js-config{,-64}.h
mv -v /opt/xulrunner-1.9.1.16/include/xulrunner-1.9.1.16/unstable/mozilla-config{,-64}.h

Some applications rely on headers which have moved. Create symlinks to accommodate these:

ln -sv npfunctions.h /opt/xulrunner-1.9.1.16/include/xulrunner-1.9.1.16/unstable/npupp.h
