x64 Mozilla Sunbird slackbuild/package
 
Hi all,

Does anyone have a Slackware 13 x64 Mozilla Sunbird package? Or fancy building one?

Or... can anyone point me in the direction of a muppets howto for creating one?

Many thanks,


~Mark

Not for x64 unfortunately :-(

Mark,

You're right as far as I can tell. Building Sunbird from source on a pure x86_64 computer is very difficult.

However, there is a 64-bit release you may want to try. I'm going to take a look at the SlackBuild and see if I can build a 64-bit version with the binary package I linked to above.

However, there is a very nice Lightning plug-in for Thunderbird that runs on x86_64.

Look in the /contrib subdirectories of these directories.

There's some version stuff you need to consider. I think the latest versions of Lightning only work with Thunderbird 3. To use the .xpi file, just load it via the add-on tool in Thunderbird.

Edited to add: it's probably worth contacting the maintainer of the Sunbird SlackBuild script to ask if he knows about the Linux x86_64 release of Sundbird 1.0b.

Regards,

Oh sorry didnt read the page i linked to in my first post.

brooky9999 04-23-2010 07:45 PM

sahko - No worries. Thanks for your input anyway.

Lufbery - I knew there was x64 bit source available, and I'd seen the page sahko linked to about it being very difficult to build a x64 bit package. That's why I shied away from it :-S

I will contact the maintainer of the Slackbuild script, and please let me know if you have any luck building a package yourself :-)

Thanks,


~Mark

I'm sorry if this is a stoopid reply.

I know this isn't a SlackBuild, but you should still be able to use SunBird x86_64.

Did you try just downloading from
http://download.mozilla.org/?product...x64&lang=en-US

Then extract sunbird*.tar.bz2 and then move the sunbird folder to /opt.

Then Right Click on the Start menu and use Menu Editor to add an entry for Sunbird .

Use /opt/sunbird/sunbird for the command and use
/opt/sunbird/chrome/icons/default/default.xpm for the icon.

The whole thing should take well under 5 minutes. If you want to uninstall, just rm -r sunbird from /opt and use menu editor to remove the entry from your Start Menu.

Lufbery 04-24-2010 09:43 AM

That was easy. :D

Here you go:

Download the file in this directory. It is sunbird-1.0b1.tar.bz2.

Download the Slackbuild tarball.

Then replace the sunbird.Slackbuild script in the tarball with this one:

Quick note: I sent a link to this thread to the Sunbird SlackBuild maintainer on Sunday.

I recommend that this thread be marked as solved.

Lufbery, you are a superstar!

Thank you for doing that - it's much appreciated.


I'll forward you a list of software my Slackware 13 x64 box is crying out to be packaged up... ;-)

Seriously, thanks again.

No problem, Mark. I didn't really do that much.

Hey, post them here! Using src2pkg and SlackBuild scripts, a lot of us on this board are working through compilation issues. The more the merrier, I say. :D

brooky9999 04-27-2010 08:51 AM

To be fair, the only thing my system is missing now is Skype, Adobe Reader and Keepassx.

And as there is no x64 source code for these yet, I'm kinda outta luck :-S
