Description Pablo Yanez Trujillo 2009-02-26 18:43:45 UTC
I'm not sure whether it should be better to file this bug report for the xulrunner folks.

I'm tired of compiling xulrunner on old machines and I installed net-libs/xulrunner-bin-1.8.1.19 hoping that I don't need to compile xulrunner again. But devhelp (and some other ebuild out there) does not check if you've installed the binary version instead. What could be the best way of fixing it?

Reproducible: Always

Comment 1 Gilles Dartiguelongue gentoo-dev 2009-02-26 22:53:00 UTC
there is no good way to build things against xulrunner-bin or firefox-bin so this is something we don't support.

ok, I understand this. Then why is there a -bin Version of xulrunner if it doesn't really work?
Comment 3 Gilles Dartiguelongue gentoo-dev 2009-02-28 13:06:34 UTC
not sure, ask whoever introduced it to the tree.
Comment 4 Daniel Gryniewicz (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-02-28 16:09:37 UTC
For acroread, it would appear, which is also binary-only.
