Build 1

  • Done completely manually (no tinderbox, bootstrap, or buildbot).



  • Created a tar.bz2 and hg bundle. Basically, did this:
hg clone
cd mozilla-central
hg up -r FIREFOX_3_1a2_BUILD1
hg bundle --base 0 -r FIREFOX_3_1a2_BUILD1 ../firefox-3.1a2-source.bundle
rm -rf .hg*
tar -cjf ../firefox-3.1a2-source.tar.bz2 .
  • Pushed to stage.m.o:/home/ftp/pub/firefox/nightly/3.1a2-candidates/build1/


Forgot to log what I did. Basically, did this:

hg clone
cd mozilla-central
hg up -r FIREFOX_3_1a2_BUILD1
hg clone configs
cp configs/mozilla2/win32-release/mozconfig .mozconfig
cat .mozconfig
export MOZ_OBJDIR=fx-objdir
make -f build # 'make -f profiledbuild' on windows
cd fx-objdir
export SYMBOL_SERVER_PATH=/mnt/netapp/breakpad/symbols_ffx/
export SYMBOL_SERVER_USER=ffxbld
export SYMBOL_SERVER_SSH_KEY=$properPathForHost
make buildsymbols
make uploadsymbols
make package # 'make installer' on windows
  • Pushed to dated directories (XXXXXX), and 3.1a2-candidates


Signed windows builds with instructions here: Had to tag: browser/installer/windows/app.tag other-licenses/7zstub/firefox/7zSD.sfx

with FIREFOX_3_1a2_BUILD1 in CVS, because the signing tools do not support pulling stub files from HG (FIXME)


To rename the files, did the following:

# in /data/cltbld
mkdir -p batch1/stage-signed
cd batch1/stage-signed
rsync -av /home/ftp/pub/firefox/nightly/3.1a2-candidates/firefox-* .
mv firefox-3.1a2.en-US.linux-i686.tar.bz2 shiretoko-alpha2.en-US.linux-i686.tar.bz2
mv firefox-3.1a2.en-US.mac.dmg "Shiretoko Alpha 2.dmg"
mv firefox-3.1a2.en-US.win32.installer.exe "Shiretoko Alpha 2 Setup.exe"
mv firefox-3.1a2-source.bundle shiretoko-alpha2-source.bundle
mv firefox-3.1a2-source.tar.bz2 shiretoko-alpha2-source.tar.bz2

Sign installers

Done manually using these installer-signing-instructions here

  • complete stage-merged:
# on stage
cd /data/cltbld/firefox-3.1a2/
rsync -av batch1/stage-signed/ stage-merged/
  • Create MD5 and SHA1 checksum files
# on stage
cd /data/cltbld/firefox-3.1a2/stage-merged/
~/bin/checksum-files .
  • Fix permissions & ownership (on the two SUM files, and the detached sigs)
chown -R cltbld:firefox .
chmod 644 *SUMS
