So, I’m trying to hook up the Mozilla Symbol Server in order to better see how my attempts at knitting a source server to it will work.
First – I need to know what version of Firefox I should be doing this with. Currently I have 3 options: ff2, nightly build and my own build from yesterday’s class. Talking with Dave on IRC, it seems like the nightly is the one to go with.
So, with my visual studio 2005 attached to the process that is Minefield, I install the toxic extension and restart Minefield – “Crash Bang Boom!” (i love this, btw). So now I can see some stuff in Visual Studio. What I’m looking at, I’m not exactly sure yet.
Then I did something and cleared out the results of the crash and now I can’t get them back because Minefield crashes too fast for me to attach to process in VStudio. Bsmedberg gave me the following commands to try and get it back:
set env NO_EM_RESTART=1
devenv -debugexe firefox.exe -P test
I’m fiddling with this as we speak.
Stay tuned for part 2 where I hopefully will start to see the use of symbols.
