as the SeaMonkey tree (http://tbpl.drapostles.org/?tree=SeaMonkey
currently in a rather bad state, I'll summarize here what's currently
causing which problem:
- Linux problems:
Bug 467168 introduced a new dependency on GTK+-2.0, version 2.14 or
higher. Bug 795354 has been filed on this to update the OS/GTK on the
Also see Bug 793634 on this, in the future gtk-2.18/glib-2.22 will be
required, for now Bug 794285 has lowered the requirement back to GTK 2.10.
- Windows problems:
Should mostly be fixed from what I know. A patch on mozilla-central
required a newer NSIS version on the tinderboxen than what was
installed. Bug 794351 took care of updating NSIS on the tinderboxen.
- Mac OS X problems:
The OS X tinderboxen were switched to a new compiler (clang) as gcc
support was dropped. Now a patch on mozilla-central caused the builds on
the OS X tinderboxen to fail. Bug 791442 was filed on this and many
possible solutions were tried, but none worked. It looks like this is
caused by some problem of XCode and a special clang package not working
correctly together on OS X 10.6. Bug 793463 was filed on this to upgrade
the tinderboxen to OS X 10.7 as this is the same version that's running
on the Firefox tinderboxen. Hopefully this will fix the issue when all
the required software has been installed.
