"gxine" /usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lmozjs


Hi,
I'm attempting to install gxine-0.5.1, and running into problems. Help if you can, please. I have a scratch built linux system. Following linux from scratch cvs instructions in a loose sense of the phrase. Heres how it bails:

usr/lib/libcairo.so /usr/lib/libgobject-2.0.so /usr/lib/libgmodule-2.0.so -ldl /usr/lib/libglib-2.0.so -lmozjs
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lmozjs
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[1]: *** [gxine] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/beyond-linux-base/gxine/gxine-0.5.1/src'
make: *** [all-recursive] Error 1


Help PLEASE

thanks in advance

have you installed mozilla or firefox yet? that's where the library you need comes from. if you don't want the mozilla/firefox plugin to be built, look in ./configure --help for an option to disable it.

Hi,

Yes I have mozilla-1.7.12 installed on my system. I folled the lfs instruction for its installation, and I have java jdk-1.5.0 installed with the proper symlink in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins.
If anyone knows anyway to possible edit the source so it searches in the right spot for this code I'd appreciate your help.

thanks

do you have the directory contianing the libraries in /etc/ld.so.conf and have you run ldconfig? otherwise, you could for ce the linker to look there, say if the lib is in /usr/lib/mozilla-1.7.5 you could:

Code:
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/mozilla-1.7.5:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
and the library linker will search that directory. if you use this method though, it will have to be done at runtime too, so the dynamic linker can find the lib then also. it's better to have the directory in /etc/ld.so.conf and run ldconfig if you want it more hassle free.

Hi,

I enter /usr/lib/mozilla-1.7.12 into my /etc/ld.so.conf. I ran ldconfig, and I still get the same error.

thanks

does /usr/lib/mozilla-1.7.12 contain libmozjs.so?

Hi,

Yes its does.

/usr/lib/mozilla-1.7.12/libmozjs.so

How can I tell if the library is functioning correctly a sort of sanity check?

Not sure what distro you're running but on FC4 I dowloaded js and js-devel rpms from http://dag.wieers.com/packages/js/

I applied the patch given and eveything went as expected. Works great.

Hi,

I am am running a linux box built from source code. I followed lfs-cvs liberally. I did however follow the mozilla, and jdk-1.5.0 builds to the note. So I am kinda stumped on this one.

thanks

Hi

I have an idea I think gxine needs a static library to build against. before I mess around with this does anyone know if this is true?

thanks
