At some point makepkg.conf got some default options which gcc6 doesn't like, you can remove them with these lines before the make invocations in build() and package():

export CFLAGS="${CFLAGS/-fstack-clash-protection/}"
export CFLAGS="${CFLAGS/-fcf-protection/}"
export CXXFLAGS="${CXXFLAGS/-fstack-clash-protection/}"
export CXXFLAGS="${CXXFLAGS/-fcf-protection/}"

Also the prepare() function fails if you didn't clean the srcdir, that can be fixed by using the -p switch for mkdir on line 81 and the -f switch for ln on line 82

Thanks. Since this is affecting a few different forks, it looked easiest to just upload a mozilla-common AUR package.

mozilla-common dependency is broken (see comments from 2021-04-)

Thanks @BruceR, I got it to work by following your advice.

It seems that a preexisting version under /usr/lib/xulrunner-41.0.2 is reused during the build, and if it had been built against an older libicu version it would fail to run. Uninstalling and rebuilding xulrunner from scratch did the trick.

how do you compile for over an hour and 4GB of space. but this is needed for firefox

BruceR commented on 2021-01-04 08:42 (UTC)

The build process seem to check if there is an existing xulrunner package installed and links against the specific version of libicui18n that is referenced by the already installed package. I removed xulrunner and the other packages that depended on it and it built fine using You will need to rebuild and reinstall those dependent packages anyway.

ldconfig -p | grep (libc6,x86-64) => /usr/lib/ (libc6) => /usr/lib32/ (libc6,x86-64) => /usr/lib/ (libc6) => /usr/lib32/

As I said in my first post

    I have /usr/lib/ in my system. Not

The build process is asking for notice the 64 :)

/home/user/.cache/pikaur/build/xulrunner/src/mozilla-release/obj-x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu/dist/bin/xpcshell: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I guess I could manually symlink it, but there has to be a better way. I also reinstalled icu, but I got the same problem.

Thanks for your time

Hi @zwastik, I had not this issue before. But it mostly caused by missing lib. Could you check whether the lib exists by running ldconfig -p | grep

Mine output is: (libc6,x86-64) => /usr/lib/ (libc6,x86-64) => /usr/lib/

This lib comes from icu package. I guess reinstalling icu will solve the issue.

I am having the same problem as @cknoblauch. I did a pikaur -Scc before building FWIW.

Ok, the checksums are now fixed. Your problem looks like something that can be fixed by make clean. It's trying to link to icu 64.
