    mozilla-nspr-4.6.4.tar.gz


    Does anyone know where to get mozilla-nspr-4.6.4.tar.gz. The program is asking for nspr[>=4.6.4]. If known where is there a way of installing it (./configure and ./nspr-config will not compile it)

    Hi - It should be available as an rpm, though I haven't looked to see if Mandriva supply this one. If you have some repositories set up you might try:

    urpmi mozilla-nspr

    That would be a good approach in case there are dependencies to resolve.

    In Mandriva using urpmi, there are no nspr 4.6.4 or above rpms only libnspr. In other distros there are rpm and tar.gz forms of mozilla-nspr 4.6.4 or higher but they present there own ploblems. Any suggestions?

    Hi - Yes I know what rpm problems can be like. Visit the Mozilla site here and read section 9. 'Building from Source'.

    Then read this for reference.

    It says:
    This release is built from the source, at the CVS repository rooted at cvs.mozilla.org:/cvsroot, with the CVS tag
    NSPR_4_6_4_RTM. You can check out the source from CVS by
    cvs co -r NSPR_4_6_4_RTM mozilla/nsprpub

    To build, do
    cd mozilla/nsprpub
    ./configure
    gmake export
    That might even work! You would be downloading and installing the code from the CVS repository in the example above.

    This is what i got so far. Cannot find a cvsroot with a repository file in it.
    [root@localhost ~]# cd /usr/local/src/
    [root@localhost src]# ls
    cvsroot/
    [root@localhost src]# cvs -d server:root:@cvs-mirror.mozilla.org:/usr/local/src/cvsroot/ co -r NSPR_4_6_4_RTM mozilla/nsprpub
    /usr/local/src/cvsroot: no such repository
    [root@localhost src]#
