K-Meleon development related discussions.
[quote=guenter] [quote=Dorian] the only things needed is what I mentionned in my post. [/quote] Since K-Meleon 1.0 Your compiler is the only version known to build K-Meleon. :) (Except that Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 seems to build 1.6.a?) Additionally: Windows Build Prerequisites list VC7.1 (Visual Studio 2003) as the only version that builds GRE 1.8 - 1.9.1. But VC7.1 (Visual Studio 2003) is not cheap or free, is it? [quote=Dorian] where you really get this list [/quote] Easy to answer - since I found myself the same list of items :D I followed Mozilla "free" build directions via [url=https://developer.mozilla.org/En/Windows_Build_Prerequisites]Windows Build Pre-requisites[/url] All that follow the links will eventually get Gorilla's list as downloads. It is mainly for these two: VC8 (Visual Studio 2005) and VC9 (Visual Studio 2008). [url=http://tiermann.freehosting.net/]Older build instructions such as TierMann's[/url] or [url=http://whereswalden.com/mozilla/msvcfree/]Where is Walden[/url] have different requirements - some list items seem to belong to these. [url=http://www.gemal.dk/mozilla/build.html]Some items even belong to instructions for Windows builds with Unix tools and GCC[/url]. And when You install all together - nothing works [img]http://necb.bizhat.com/kmeleon/icon_wicked.gif[/img] That is what I found anyway :D A 1.8 GRE build only (minimum download volume) needs free Toolkit 2003, .Net 1.1 SDK plus another free MS SDK with more includes and libs. [url=http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=484269E2-3B89-47E3-8EB7-1F2BE6D7123A&displaylang=en] Needed atl, crt and mfc files can only come from Windows Server 2003 SDK R2[/url]. So that is my premier choice :) It takes some altering and making atl.lib and comsupp.lib if any wants to build GRE 126.96.36.199 to 1.9.1. The later causes some problems. Build does not know compiler option -G6. This error can be overcome by not compiling js3250.dll with -GL. I had to search for GL in makefile.in of aborted js3250.dll build sub-directory, delete the -GL option and start a less optimizing, incremental build of this dll. And that is how far I know to get at the moment. I can build optimized GREs with VC 7.1 cl.exe version 13.10.3052.0 and other free tools. I can even build optimized mfcembed.exe (-O -GL). Now I would like the free Mozilla GRE build environment to build K-Meleon.exe instead of that.[img]http://necb.bizhat.com/kmeleon/icon_wink.gif[/img] I have edited some files in ./embedding/... . I feeded K-Meleon.exe sources into it. And it build two object and a res file. Then it errored out :( (possibly on old style definitions? - according to Google). Question: Which options do You use for K-Meleon build? Do You use/know any special options for old code compatibility? Or is it needed to buy VC7.1 (Visual Studio 2003) to get libs and headers?[/quote]
