Subject [jira] [Closed] (COUCHDB-960) Have configure work without flags on Debian/Ubuntu
Date Sun, 22 Jan 2012 02:39:40 GMT


Randall Leeds closed COUCHDB-960.

       Resolution: Not A Problem
    Fix Version/s: 1.1.1

As of CouchDB 1.1.1 I think this works fine on sufficiently new Ubuntu/Debian. We test for
3 different versions of spidermonkey and do so in a way that should work with any properly
configured paths.

I'll open a new ticket to support "js-config" at some point, but I think there were issues
with it last I checked (some options when building spidermonkey break js-config, so it cannot
be relied upon to exist).

> On a Debian/Ubuntu system, you have to help configure to find the JS library:
> xulrunner_gre_version=`xulrunner --gre-version`
> ./configure --with-js-lib=/usr/lib/xulrunner-devel-${xulrunner_gre_version}/lib/ --with-js-include=/usr/lib/xulrunner-devel-${xulrunner_gre_version}/include/
&& make
> It seems that Yelp is able to do this on it's own using special m4 macros[1].
> I would like the CouchDB configure script to be able to find the JS library without requiring
extra arguments.
