I didn't realize that the build system tries to call pip. Maybe if python2-pip is installed, it gets confused.

I'm still having problem building it. Here's the complete output, any help would be appreciated :)

@ConnorBehan: The fix for the problem mentioned at 2018-09-02 and fix posted on 2018-10-17 and re-confirmed on 2019-01-11 and 2019-02-07 is still pending.

I now confirm again on 2019-08-06 that this patch makes xulrunner building again.

Can you please add it to the PKGBUILD?

Package has already been flagged out of date.

The patch download URL is <>.

Step-by-step-instruction for the PKGBUILD, to make it even easier for you to add it:

  • to the source-array, append
  • To the sha256sums-array, append
  • In the prepare()-function, add

  # Fix for Bug 1329798 "Use of major & minor macros without including sys/sysmacros.h"
  patch -Np1 -i ../0001-Bug-1329798-Include-sys-sysmacros.h-for-major-minor-on-Linux.patch

after patch -Np1 -i ../Bug-1269171.patch.

@dushistov suggestion work. Just download the patch and add in PKGBUILD. Works for me. Thanks

@dushistov solution seems not to work for me. @ConnorBehan could you update the PKGBUILD with that patch? Thanks in advance.

I have to apply patch from here to fix build with current arch linux (glibc 2.28-4).

This is part of why it was moved to the AUR. Xulrunner, like all Mozilla crap, is written in such a way that it will need constant updates whenever a new version of one of its dependencies comes out. Eventually, I ran out of ideas to make it build.

@PhotonX Same problem here. I get the exact same error at the exact same point.
