PM 27.8 build error for 32-bit

Unread postby WilliamK » Sun, 11 Mar 2018, 07:47

I have had 3 goes at this... building 27.7 and 27.8 out-of-box with no modifications. 27.7 builds ok every time, but 27.8 has failed 3 times from a fresh start using the same routine...

Did you perform a fresh git checkout, or did you update?
Usually this happens when it finds a path it expects mach-commands.py in, but doesn't actually find the file.

Just noticed that it never unpacked fully using 7zip... could not open many files.

I download from the PM website... ftp://source:get@archive.palemoon.org/p ... -source.7z

Let me verify the archive.

EDIT: Archive on the server passes integrity checks -- probably something went wrong when you downloaded it.

I downloaded again and unpacked ok, to install ok. Strange thing is the 2 files are exactly the same byte size.

All is well :-)
