thunderbird-bin:

/usr/local/lib/libiconv.2.dylib (compatibility version 4.0.0, current version 4.0.0)

/usr/lib/libSystem.B.dylib (compatibility version 1.0.0, current version 63.0.0)
/usr/local/lib/libdl.dylib (compatibility version 0.0.0, current version 0.0.0)
/System/Library/Frameworks/Carbon.framework/Versions/A/Carbon (compatibility version 2.0.0, current version 122.0.0)

So I link over a libiconv.2.dylib... the "real one" on my system is libiconv.2.1.0.dylib (this one is not "fink installed").

I'll try to rebuild the beast with ac_add_options --enable-native-uconv in .mozconfig and I'll make you know if this one works.


O.K. Let me know.

The libiconv.2.dylib on my system was installed before I installed fink on my system and the fink libiconv.2.dylib lays in one of the /sw subfolfers. So I don't think this has any influence.

Only think I can do is to get the latest libiconv from GNU and compile it by myself and try if Thunderbirds runs with this version. I think it's version 1.8, which actually should be 2.1.8 if I am right with the counting.

BTW nice to know otool-L is the equivalent to ldd.

there's an all.js hack required

comment out :

// pref("general.skins.selectedSkin", "classic/1.0");[/quote]


Sweet, the skin finally works. Thanks, I had read the other posts on how to get this to work, but those posts went on for a while and no one had a trick that worked.

I just uploaded the new build to the ftp site ricardopants gently offered to the community for download. This one is not dependent on any libiconv and should start correctly on any system (at least I hope so).

The skin problems are, also, misteriously disappeared. Mail me if you need/want build instructions... it is a LONG process on my TI (G4/400MHz, 256MB RAM)...

Make me know also if it works for you!

It's running on my system and started out of the box.

Due to the fact the othter build didn't start I compiled my own libiconv I had to rename it in order to prove your latest build and it suceeded, the latest build still launched so I thought good job but then I read ricardopants post and thought not really good job. But he is to unspecific.

Maybe he should take a log in the Console output and the crash log in order to give more hints why the build dies at startup on his machine.

I can't say that for my machine. Still there is this ugly space for the menues. But which skin do you use on your machine and what is it that I may be doing wrong?

Yes, you can send me the build instruction but I want you to know that I have never build mozilla application before, so you must make it really easy and understanble. Step by step.
My Emailadress is ice_1 at gmx.de (Replace the at with the symbol)

And it won't be significantly faster building on my machine since I only have a iMac G3 400 with 320MB of RAM and these 64MB RAM more will only likely compensat the G3 to G4 processor disadvantage of mine.

Next nice thing to have back would be the offline modus or is there a chance to send messages later without an offline modus?

yes ricardopants, can you do this for me? For curiosity, as a minimum! :-)

I use Orbit Retro. I got it when I copied the Library/Mozilla/etc... directory to Library/Thunderbird/etc... to recover filtering, junk and so on...

You'll have to edit the all.js file in /Applications/Thunderbird.app/Contents/MacOS/defaults/pref/all.js and comment the first line ('pref("general.skins.selectedSkin", "classic/1.0");' to '// pref("general.skins.selectedSkin", "classic/1.0");'). Then you can select the skin from Themes... Classic theme is ugly also for me.

Instructions sent to your address. Make me know if you succed (and IF the build runs). If anyone else want them, just ask.

Your log is "strange"... can you (and someone else reading this one) try the new release I sent you on your site (http://ip.squidaction.com/) and make me know if it starts? TIA.

yeah, same problem with the new build. Tell me where to get the crash log, so I know I'm grabbing the correct one.

I just downloaded and installed the May 16 build. It opened just fine. So far it seems to be working ok. Now I just need to set it up with my account info.
