Kazehakase won't run against xulrunner (gecko-libs 1.9)
Last modified: 2008-07-26 02:09:21 EDT
Description of problem:
Kazehakase fails to compile against XUL Runner (gecko-libs 1.9) in rawhide. XUL
Runner will be a gecko-libs provider in Fedora 9 and all gecko-libs packages
have to be rebuilt aginst it. (see
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I would appreciate it if you supply patches needed to build
kazehakase against xulrunner so that I can send it to upstream.
Perhaps upstream won't try to adjust kazehakase to xulrunner until
"formal" xulrunner 1.9 is relased because
- Upstream told me that kazehakase should already support gecko 1.9
- Upstream perhaps don't not why some header files are removed
and perhaps they are thinking that gecko 1.9 API is not freezed
I'd like to help you with it but I have to port application from core first
Anyway, you have a time, firefox-devel is still in rawhide and if the support is
planned by upstream you can rebase the package after official xulrunner release.

Unfortunately this is no longer the case, as firefox-devel has now been removed
tried a simple update of gecko-libs to 1.9 for xulrunner, but doesn't build:
which seems to contract the assertion that gecko 1.9 works by upstream mentioned

gdb log of kazehakase
Well, now actually kazehakase (0.5.3-4.fc9) builds against
recent xulrunner (nightly20080304):
However when I
- install kazehakase-base, kazehakase
- launch kazehakase (type $ kazehakase)
- select "File -> New Tab"
Then kazehakase crashes. gdb attached, however I cannot figure out
where crash is happening from gdb log.
Gecko related codes are mostly under module/embed/gecko/.
Gecko maintainers, would you give me some help?
Umm... kazekahase seems to still be failing to find gtk_moz_embed_push_startup ()

scratch build is here:
Again, actually kazehakase builds, but is broken completely for xulrunner
(just File -> open the new tab makes kazehakase crash).
I really appreciate gecko maintainers' help.
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
kazehakase-0.5.4-5.fc9 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 9
kazehakase-0.5.4-5.fc9 has been pushed to the Fedora 9 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
