Building SeaMonkey was a task I kept putting off but really didn't take that long considering the previous courses I have taken has me install the prerequisites for this task.
The first thing i had to do was install Mercurial
And download the SeaMonkey code off comm-central
I used the command to download and send the code to a the folder called src
hg clone http://hg.mozilla.org/releases/comm-1.9.1/file/c5c64590370a src
python client.py checkout
After downloading it i created the .mozconfig file.
And tried to compile the source code. The problem i ran into was that i could not compile the code if the path to the code had spaces. What took me awhile to realize was the code downloaded from comm-central to my documents and setttings, and i couldn't rename that. I cut and paste the code else where which took 20 mintues, a lot files.
After figure that out i used the command
make -f client.mk
After and hour of compiling i was rewarded with no errors and a clean launch of SeaMonkey
