With the -fpermissive, and the multiple definition of gettid fixes, I'm now getting "/tmp/xulrunner/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"

Apparently it's possible to get an older version of the package and just manually extract/copy the respective but I feel like that's the wrong solution.

To fix multiple definition of `gettid' in /src/mozilla-release/tools/profiler/platform-linux-lul.h:25

Add : sed -i '24,27d' tools/profiler/platform-linux-lul.h

at the end of the prepare() function in PKGBUILD before }.

Trying to build with -fpermissive, as per same error as ynikitenko; the next error is:

ld: ../../tools/profiler/Unified_cpp_tools_profiler0.o: in function `gettid.localalias.0':

Even with --quiet the output from xulrunner is massive.

I have this error,

builds/xulrunner/src/mozilla-release/tools/profiler/platform-linux-lul.h:24:21: error: ‘pid_t gettid()’ was declared ‘extern’ and later ‘static’ [-fpermissive] static inline pid_t gettid() ^~~~~~ In file included from /usr/include/unistd.h:1170:0, from ../../dist/system_wrappers/unistd.h:3, from /home/yaroslav/builds/xulrunner/src/mozilla-release/tools/profiler/AutoObjectMapper.cpp:8, from /home/yaroslav/builds/xulrunner/src/mozilla-release/obj-x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu/tools/profiler/Unified_cpp_tools_profiler0.cpp:2: /usr/include/bits/unistd_ext.h:34:16: note: previous declaration of ‘__pid_t gettid()’ extern __pid_t gettid (void) __THROW;

A more complete log is here: (I couldn't paste all log because of pastebin 500 kB restriction).

I didn't realize that the build system tries to call pip. Maybe if python2-pip is installed, it gets confused.

I'm still having problem building it. Here's the complete output, any help would be appreciated :)

@ConnorBehan: The fix for the problem mentioned at 2018-09-02 and fix posted on 2018-10-17 and re-confirmed on 2019-01-11 and 2019-02-07 is still pending.

I now confirm again on 2019-08-06 that this patch makes xulrunner building again.

Can you please add it to the PKGBUILD?

Package has already been flagged out of date.

The patch download URL is <>.

Step-by-step-instruction for the PKGBUILD, to make it even easier for you to add it:

  • to the source-array, append
  • To the sha256sums-array, append
  • In the prepare()-function, add

  # Fix for Bug 1329798 "Use of major & minor macros without including sys/sysmacros.h"
  patch -Np1 -i ../0001-Bug-1329798-Include-sys-sysmacros.h-for-major-minor-on-Linux.patch

after patch -Np1 -i ../Bug-1269171.patch.

@dushistov suggestion work. Just download the patch and add in PKGBUILD. Works for me. Thanks

andalenavals commented on 2019-01-11 10:50

@dushistov solution seems not to work for me. @ConnorBehan could you update the PKGBUILD with that patch? Thanks in advance.

dushistov commented on 2018-10-17 01:02

I have to apply patch from here to fix build with current arch linux (glibc 2.28-4).
