Re: Official firefox-pgo thread

I also get a segfault without PGO. I give up.. I'll just wait for the official release.

Re: Official firefox-pgo thread

Official - arch or official - mozilla-bin? Official mozilla-bin is available, but I would not recommend it. For official arch - disable pgo. Mine will be still more striped and optimized, but it will be more similar.

Re: Official firefox-pgo thread

I got this to build without PGO and ff 3.5 is a nice improvement in speed over 3.1.x

However one of the coolest features is support for the HTML 5 <video> tag, except I can't seem to get any videos to play!

anyone else having trouble?

try here: http://www.youtube.com/html5 (click play but nothing happens! sad )

Re: Official firefox-pgo thread

Video support is disabled by me in mozconfig (disable-ogg). I cannot manage to compile it in any way with video support.

Re: Official firefox-pgo thread

always profileserver exit -11 error, can't get pgo compiled on X86_64 system. and tried another profileserver mentioned by bangkok_manouel, got segmentfault, so I think firefox bin somewhere doesn't compile right caused the profile testing failed, and we shall not blame the profileserver.

Re: Official firefox-pgo thread

I had problem on my dual core system compiling firefox-pgo 3.0.11 because of corrupted profiling info even with MAKEFLAGS="-j1"

Adding "-fprofile-correction" to the CFLAGS and CXXFLAGS in the PKGBUILD file solved the problem for me. If you have problems with corrupted profile info try this.

I see that "-fprofile-correction is already added to LDFLAGS, but I don't think is useful because the profiling info corruption shows up during compilation and not linking.

i've notice that too. the final package does not have firefox-bin and is segmentfaulting, even i compile with profile or without. i really don't know why is doing that because in the past i compile without profile and was working fine.

I'm trying to compile it with cflags, without cflags, with ldflags, without, with default mozconfig, with modified mozconfig, wit and without pgo - no succes. It looks like problem with gcc...

I've just successfully compiled ff3.5 rc1 without pgo, but with pgo it will still end with that -11 error.

tested with sunspider
3.0.11 with pgo 49xx
3.5 rc1 without pgo 44xx

PS: both are compiled with gcc 4.2.4, X86_64, kernel 2.6.27

yeah, I've tried to compile ff3.5rc1 pgo with gcc-4.1.3, gcc-4.2.4, gcc-4.3.2, all ends up with different errors, so I am just curious if ff3.5 is impossible to be built with pgo on X86_64 platform?! has anybody heard somewhere there is somebody had done it(ff3.5pgo on X86_64) successfully?

Re: Official firefox-pgo thread

Can you share your pkgbuild + files you used to compile the non-pgo version of firefox 3.5rc1?

Re: Official firefox-pgo thread

I've been trying to compile Firefox with PGO since late March with little luck. About a month ago I somehow managed to build 3.5b4 using blasse's firefox-pgo-beta package, but was unable to replicate it just a few days later with the exact same files. That was the only success I had out of about 20 tries over a couple month period, which is pretty odd. Useless, but still odd.

I've been looking around and noticed a new firefox-3.5 package was submitted to AUR recently, and it also uses PGO to build 3.5b99. The one major difference I can see after a quick look is that it is dependent on xulrunner-1.9.1. Somebody there recently reported that 'it works', and by this point the smallest inkling of success is enough for me to try it. My one-time 3.5b4 build still performs twice as slow on the Sunspider tests than ones I compiled around March, but those were on a different system and perform even poorer when I try to bring them over to my Arch machine using identical hardware. Go figure.

http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=26057 is the package I'm talking about. I'm building it now, and am wondering if anyone else has tried it. If it works maybe it could help with building other Firefox packages as well.

Re: Official firefox-pgo thread

PGOing ff based on xulrunner is useless. Xulrunner is engine, ff - gui. If U compile gui with pgo and engine without there will be no speed gain. btw. There is now way to pgo xulrunner now, that's why I'm trying to build ff without it wink
ps. Last pgo I've successfully compiled was 3.5b4. No luck with b99 or rc1. I think that number of tries exceeded 100 now wink

Re: Official firefox-pgo thread

Ok, that makes a lot of sense. Thanks for the clarification, I always wondered what the advantage to going xulrunner-independent was. Hopefully 3.5 final will be a little PGO-friendlier, since it really makes a noticeable difference when browsing.

I am not arch user, but love arch forum, so there is no pkgbuild, only a plain .mozconfig

gcc 4.2.4 ubuntu 64bit 8.10

the procedures:

* download firefox-3.5rc1-source.tar.bz2 from mozilla nightly ftp
* tar xvf firefox-3.5rc1-source.tar.bz2
* cd mozilla-1.9.1/
* make sure we have .mozconfig inside dir mozilla-1.9.1
* time make -f client.mk build
* after about 35mins on my amd x2 3800+ pc, the firefox binary will be resided inside mozilla-1.9.1/firefox-bin/dist/bin/

my messy mozconfig

Re: Official firefox-pgo thread

Say...what are the chances of this thing building if i put --enable-default-toolkit=cairo-QT in mozconfig? Id hate to wait 4hrs and find out it failed seeing as it took about 6hrs to compile the first time.
