Introduction

This page provides a breakdown of the common Camino build errors, their causes, and instructions for resolving the errors.

Before looking for your error on this page, make sure that the Camino tinderbox was green when you pulled your source tree.

If the Camino tinderbox or the Mac builds or UNIX/Linux builds in the SeaMonkey or Firefox tinderboxes are orange or red, you should avoid checking out.

If the tinderbox was green when you checked out your source tree, look for your error below.

If you don't see your build error below, be sure to also check Mac OS X Build Prerequisites: Troubleshooting in the Mozilla Developer Center for late-breaking build errors.

Build Errors extracted from the cbo Build FAQ

Q. I get a link error when building Camino.
A. This has most likely occurred because you are building from within Xcode and have set up .mozconfig for an optimized build and Xcode for a debug build, or the other way around. Follow the instructions above to set your build mode in both .mozconfig and Xcode. Or just build from the command line using make -f client.mk.

Q. I get errors that the Camino build failed at some <CopyFilesX> where X is some number.
A. Usually this is because you forgot to make in embedding/config after making code changes. Follow the instructions carefully, and try again.

pbxcp: libpermissions.dylib: No such file or directory

In XCode 2.3:

Error message

Build target "Camino" of project "Camino" with configuration "Development" - (1 error)
Copying ../dist/bin/components/libpermissions.dylib - (1 error)
pbxcp: libpermissions.dylib: No such file or directory
Build failed (1 error)

Cause

You have enabled a static build of Camino in your .mozconfig, but not in Xcode (target mismatch).

Solution

Remove the following lines from your .mozconfig (rather than change Xcode's target, since static builds aren't useful for development)

ac_add_options --disable-shared
ac_add_options --enable-static

and make again (?)

Cause

You attempted to build in Xcode before completing a command-line (make) build.

Solution

Re-read the instructions on building Gecko and Camino and perform the required steps (specifically step 5).

Cause

You attempted to build a Universal debug build (or have tried to make in camino/installer in a single-architecture debug build). In either case, the Camino.app in dist has built correctly and can be used for debugging.

Solution

Don’t attempt to package or distribute debug builds, and don’t attempt to build a Universal debug build. If you are doing development, you only need a single-architecture debug build. If you want to distribute builds, use a distribution .mozconfig instead.

Cause

You upgraded Xcode but did not delete the Xcode header cache.

Solution

Delete header cache from /Library/Caches/com.apple.Xcode.501/SharedPrecompiledHeaders as instructed in the build instructions.

Other stuff we've seen; details to be filled in

Things that need to be tested

  • [5:43pm] mento: case-sensitive hfs and ufs might not work for camino
    [5:43pm] mento: we've had at least one patch to correct that, i'm not sure if there are more
    [5:44pm] mento: problem was we were #including header files with the wrong case
    [5:44pm] ardissone|away: yeah
    [5:44pm] mento: nothing in the core, only in camino
    [5:44pm] mento: someone liked calling it Quickdraw.h
    [5:44pm] ardissone|away: i think we've fixed all the ones mentioned
    [5:44pm] ardissone|away: we just need someone to try again
    [5:44pm] mento: gofer it
    [5:45pm] mento: actually, just set up a test disk image
    [5:45pm] mento: copy the sdk to it
    [5:45pm] mento: and the source tree
    [5:45pm] mento: and build
    [5:45pm] mento: no need for a whole system reinstall

Other

There are some described on the Camino Build instructions page, on Building Mozilla, and on the Mac Build Instructions pages (links below); most are probably not relevant at all.
