Hi Don,

I tried the patch mentioned by you. It is failing in
build-generated-files.sh. My guess is - improper line-ending is doing some
I tried patch with both methods - (a) right click -> save target as ->
patch.txt (save as type - "all files") and (b) open the file by clicking on
it -> save as (encoding: default / Unicode (UTF-8, type: text file).

It didn't give any problem while applying patch.

Is there any other way to do it?

Thank you so much for you help!

Hi AmitM,

A week or so ago I posted a patch on
http://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=12327 that should allow WebKit r18972
to build again.  No reviewers have been very interested in taking a look,
however, so it's just sitting and rotting.  I imagine the patch would need
updating to work with the current trunk.

If you're interested, you could try syncing to r18972, ensuring things
build, then updating to trunk, fixing the compile again and posting an
updated patch on that bug.  I don't really have time to do that myself.

I should warn you that even if you get things compiling, there will be major
functionality problems.  A lot of stuff in the Windows port is stubbed out,
and the COM layer is basically completely broken, so Spinneret (the test
shell) will deref garbage when you try to actually navigate to a page.
