Today I managed to compile the Second Life viewer on Linux using the BUILD=releasefordownload scon option… first time after many tries! I extracted the resulting .tar.bz2 package and the First Look 22.214.171.124018 viewer is running right now, apparently without particular problems.
Working around a llmozlib-related error, I commented out lines 126-147 and 194-195 in indra/SConstruct .
I also changed indra/llcommon/llpreprocessor.h as suggested in the sldev mailing list: at line 54, change
#define LL_LIBXUL_ENABLED 1
#define LL_LIBXUL_ENABLED 0
Then I followed the same steps I wrote in the previous post.
Feedback from other Ubuntu / other linux distro users is welcome!
(is this message a default thing?)
