mozilla-adblockplus won't build in EL6. I suspect the version of
python-jinja2 is too old.
Yepp, you already posted the failure here:
I'd file a bug against it and see if it can be updated. While
searching for the latest update, I hit this:
python-jinja2-26 is a really strange package name and installs strange
too, but BR that and mozilla-adblockplus builds fine in mock here.
(But you need to adjust PYTHONPATH a bit:
python build.py build [snip])
The whole package looks strange/odd to me, so not judging about the
strangeness above ;)
Another thing: In the sources file is only the latest source, not all
package versions you ever needed.
My question: The upstream XPI for mozilla-adblockplus includes a JAR
file. This JAR file contains _no_ libraries or binaries. It only has
the JAR extension.
Do you mean mochitest/tests/performance/data/testpages.jar?
It appears to me that there are three options.
Option 1: Unpack the upstream XPI and ship that.
Option 2: Figure out how to make this package build, if it can at all.
Option 3: Retire the package. AdBlock Plus 1.x will be disabled by
default in Firefox 10 without disabling addon compat checking, and I'm
not even sure it will work at all.
I'm in favour of option 2 :)
Hope that helps (didn't do any other checks, if it works etc as I
don't have an epel6 installation).
When jinja2 is needed on runtime, there is more todo than the
PYTHONPATH hack above, but it doesn't look like.
