What you will find

This used to be the place where I wrote stuff I was thinking about while working on the Mozilla project.

Maybe in the near future I'll start to update it again as I'm involved in a couple of new open-source projects - updates pending...

configure: error: Couldn't find curl/curl.h which is required for the crash reporter. Use --disable-crashreporter to disable the crash reporter.

Why did I reboot?Posted by Mike Kristoffersen 29 Mar, 2010 10:08:37
Of cause you can disable the crash reporter if you get this error when building Firefox/Fennec/what ever you are building. But you can also choose to continue building it by installing the missing files.

On an Ubuntu system you can install the curl development files by doing:

$ sudo apt-get install libcurl4-openssl-dev

This will use OpenSSL for SSL support, if you prefer the GnuTLS, then install libcurl4-gnutls-dev instead.
