new nss module

Joachim Lingner - Sun Germany Software Engineer - ham02 - Hamburg
Hi all,

As of DEV300m57 there will be a module named 'nss', which builds, as the
name suggests, the mozilla nss libraries. These libraries are more
recent (v 3.12.3) then those which are built in the moz module. nss will
be build by default and the libraries and headers replace those from moz.

nss was tested with the major platforms:

Windows, Windows MinGW, Solaris x86, Solaris Sparc, Linux, Linux x86_64,
Mac (x86).

Developers are welcome to make nss work on other platforms too. As long
as nss does not work on those platforms one can disable it by the
configure switch --disable-nss-module.

See also the new build requirements at
http://wiki.services.openoffice.org/wiki/Documentation/Building_Guide/Build_Requirements


Best Regards
Joachim

So, does that mean the the only remaining purpose of the moz module
which builds seamonkey/moz is to provide the mozilla address book
integration feature ?

AFAIK, yes.

Not too wrong :)
"Mozilla address book integration" also includes access to LDAP "address
books" and Outlook/Express address data on Windows. Also, the LDAP
configuration backend (not sure it is used in real life anywhere in this
universe) depends on moz.

Consequently, a good next step would be to use some openLDAP or such to
replace the LDAP part ...

Ciao
Frank

Only when you let it do it, there's already --enable-openldap for that one :)

ACK.
