ld64-127 in the MacPorts repo does not currently install on MacOSX 10.4 Tiger.

Tiger is presently limited to ld64-97 in MacPorts (and most everywhere else on Earth).

I have, however, modified ld64-127 to build and install on Tiger:

$ port -v installed ld64-127   
The following ports are currently installed:
  ld64-127 @127.2_14+llvm33 platform='darwin 8' archs='ppc' date='2020-02-03T18:00:47-0800'

but so far I have not enabled that on MacPorts. It is quite possible that even newer versions of ld64 could be made to work on Tiger -- it just requires some effort and a bit of attention to detail to do it.

To be honest, so far, ld64-97 links most things on Tiger that need linking, though ... was there a specific reason you were wanting it? Or just generally trying to see what would build?

Hi, I am trying to build TenFourFox on Mac OS 10.4. It is fork of Firefox for older Macs. It currently fails to build on my computer because the ld command does not accept the -allow_heap_execute option. ld64-127 does support this command-line option. Once I have ld64-127 up and running I will be able to build TenFourFox :)

comment:7 Changed 6 months ago by programmingkidx

Would you be willing to share your ld64-127 binary?

comment:8 Changed 6 months ago by kencu (Ken)

I have tenfourfox building on 10.4 PPC now, using ld64-97. It doesn't need ld64-127, or at least it didn't when I last built it a few weeks ago. If you are having an issue building it with ld64-97, perhaps I can help you sort out what the issue is with that.

I made a Portfile to build it to make it really easy, and put it here <https://github.com/kencu/tenfourfox-macports>. I haven't submitted this one to MacPorts as yet either, but it is pretty much ready to go. We just got stuck with the strip7 modified strip command from cctools -- people weren't happy having that in MacPorts, so that shut down the rest of it too.

To use my custom repo, you need to add it to MacPorts' list of repositories. It's really quite easy to do this, and with the kind of programming you're doing, you are going to need to do it very soon :> The instructions on how to use a custom repo are here <https://guide.macports.org/chunked/development.local-repositories.html>. Basically you just clone mine to some spot on your hard drive, like /opt/local/tenfourfox-macports, and then add that repo to the sources.conf list, as it says in the instructions.

Of course you are welcome to my Tiger ld64-127 stuff -- I have not uploaded that to github yet -- I'll find a place to put it and give you the link.

Did Cameron change something in the TenFourFox build with the latest release to make it require ld64-127?

comment:10 Changed 6 months ago by programmingkidx

I think he did. The configure command fails at a test of the c++ compiler. This is the error I see:

checking for -dead_strip option to ld... no
checking for -allow_heap_execute option to ld... no
checking whether the C++ compiler (c++  -fno-exceptions -fno-strict-aliasing -fno-rtti ) actually is a C++ compiler... no

collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
configure: failed program was:

int main() {

I cannot go past the configure command without having a linker that supports -allow_heap_execute.

comment:11 Changed 6 months ago by kencu (Ken)

I think this is your error:

ld: library not found for -lcrt1.10.6.o

and that happens because you're not setting the deployment target to 10.4.

Here's my TFF mozconfig that is used for building TenFourFox Intel (only Intel):

. $topsrcdir/browser/config/mozconfig

# optimized buildå
export CC="/opt/local/bin/gcc-mp-4.8 -Wa,-Q -flax-vector-conversions -O3 -m32 -read_only_relocs suppress"

ac_add_options --with-distribution-id=com.floodgap
ac_add_options --enable-webrtc
ac_add_options --disable-ion

but you will possibly have more success using my Portfile, at least to begin with, especially building TFF for Intel -- Riccardo and I had to do some moderate surgery, and there are still a couple of patches needed to make it build on Intel, and these are in my repo.

Oh, one more thing -- Cameron's latest TFF version pulled in some newer parts, and so far I haven't had the time with Riccardo to sort out how to get that last version of TFF to build on Intel Tiger... so we're still at FPR19, I believe -- for the moment.

comment:13 Changed 6 months ago by kencu (Ken)

I haven't uploaded any of my TFF Intel builds recently to Cameron's sourceforge site -- just lazy -- here's where I put them <https://sourceforge.net/projects/tenfourfox/files/unstable/contrib/> but my TFF FPR19 build for Tiger Intel isn't there... too many things to do I guess.

comment:16 Changed 6 months ago by programmingkidx

Thank you very much for the TenFourFox binary. It brought new life to my core duo MacBook. With your TenFourFox I am now able to watch Youtube videos on it :)

Because it took days to compile all the tools I needed to build TenFourFox, I was thinking about making a binary distribution that would save others literally days of work. It will include GCC 4.8 and all the other tools I was required to build.

As for building TenFourFox, I may do that at a later time. I would really suggest your x86 binary be made available on the main TenFourFox site. It would help a lot of people who still love their older Macs. I actually plan on bying a MacPro 3,1 to run Mac OS 10.4 on it. With the ability to play Youtube videos on it I can use it as my main computer now.

Thank you so much for you help.

comment:17 Changed 6 months ago by kencu (Ken)

That binary you downloaded from SourceForge already has all the libgcc parts and all the supporting libraries in it, so it is already self-contained and you don't need MacPorts or anything else to use it. So that part is done already.

I will (am) make a new TenFourFox FPR 18, 19, or 20 binary that is up-to-date, and I'll put it up on that sourceforge site for anyone to use.

If you are interested (and it seems like you are) then we could sure use some help keeping these things up-to-date...feel free to reach out. The GitHub repo that contains our TenFourFox Intel changes is held by Riccardo -- and most of the changes are upstreamed to Cameron, unless they are too wild for his main TFF repo. I'll let you know when I have a newer TFF Intel done.

One problem we have is that MacPorts has updated libgcc to a version that breaks on all older systems. So to make things work, we have to hold back the libgcc version to 7.4.0 (or go through lengths to set the default library path in every piece of software that uses libgcc, which does not fit in with Cameron's current plans). So I have held back to libgcc 7.4.0 on all my systems (although MacPorts has decided to give the library_path idea a shot). TFF could work with a wrapper script, if we had to use libgcc 7.5.0.

TenFourFox FPR18 built overnight on my Tiger Intel system, and it seems to be working as expected, so I uploaded that to <https://sourceforge.net/projects/tenfourfox/files/unstable/contrib/> as well just now. Please let me know if somehow isn't working as expected for you.

Later this week perhaps I'll work on FPR20 -- just trying to get updates of clang-10 and cctools out the door first.

comment:19 Changed 6 months ago by programmingkidx

When I watch a youtube video in full screen mode, I can see the top and bottom of the desktop. The full screen mode does not fully hide the everything.

I was using TenFourFox 18 on Mac OS 10.12.

Thank you.

I did try your mozconfig file. I still saw the same error message with ld-64:

I was trying to build the official repo version of TenFourFox. I will try your custom repo next.

comment:22 Changed 5 months ago by kencu (Ken)

I have the Intel build of TenFourFox automated in a an add-on MacPorts repo, and that is what I use (and what I suggest you might try, at least until you can build it once). All the deps that I found required are in the Portfile.

If you like, add this repo to your MacPorts config -- it takes only a few seconds to do that, the full instructions on how exactly to accomplish that are written up on the first page of the repo <https://github.com/kencu/tenfourfox-macports>.

Then just do this:

sudo port -v install tenfourfox

and you will be delivered with a perfectly beautiful TenFourFox.app in /Applications/MacPorts and you can do anything you like with it.

I haven't updated it beyond 18 yet -- once you can at least build 18, I would appreciate any help you might have to offer to build 22. Don't be too frustrated if you get stuck -- hacking in on Mozilla is not child's play...

There was a missing header file called llvm-c/lto.h that I was able to find online and install on my system. On Leopard it is found here: /opt/local/libexec/llvm-3.3/include/llvm-c/lto.h. After continuing is when I saw the missing symbols. Is clang/llvm suppose to be installed first?

I do have a small favor to ask. Would you be able to create an installer of ld64-127? It would make things easier.

Although ld64-127 will build on Tiger:

 ld64-127 @127.2_14+llvm33 platform='darwin 8' archs='ppc' date='2020-02-03T18:00:47-0800

you cannot presently effectively run ld64-127 on Tiger, as it fails due to incompatibilities with crt0.o, and to make those work I had to do some surgery in the system libraries I don't want to own up to here :>

Do you know why you feel you want ld64-127 on Tiger? It is not needed for anything related to TenFourFox.

I would like to see you have success building TenFourFox! Please try this [60397#comment:22] instead. Once you get that working (very easy) then you can try skiing off-piste and see where you go. Best of luck!

ld64-127 is not presently supported on Tiger. I'll update you if I change my mind about that.
