Default Beginner's Error in building Mozilla-firefox from ports.

Greetings all,

I have been using OpenBSD for quite some time now for the sole purpose of learning Unix operating system, previously I was using the 6.0 -Stable branch, after experimenting I decided to go -current branch. In the stable branch I'm able to compile openbsd from source and able to fetch and compile packages from ports. Now in the current branch I encountered these weird errors in ports. After I updated all my /usr/src, /usr/xenocara and /usr/ports via cvs, compiled my kernel, userland, xenocara from the current source, I was hoping to update my mozilla firefox 50.1.0 to mozilla firefox 51.0 using ports and this error poped up. I'm stuck here don't know what to do next. (Although I was able to update mozilla firefox thru pkg_add -u firefox, but I'm curious as to how to fix this error and be able to get this update done on ports rather than thru pkg_add -u.)

Thank you very much.

Welcome back!

The first error message contains a clue:
Code:
ERROR: The executable /tmp/ports/obj/firefox-51.0/build-amd64/_virtualenv/bin/python2.7 could not be run: [Errno 13] Permission denied
Part of this application's build includes executing code from within $WRKOBJDIR, which you have assigned to /tmp.

I'll guess that /tmp has a mount option "noexec" -- or perhaps does not have the "wxallowed" option, which may be needed for python.

Hi again sir, yes I did assigned my $WRKOBJDIR to /tmp
I'll look into this, thanks much for the suggestion I will try doing some work-arounds and post again my findings, I also posted my current fstab as of the moment.

--/etc/fstab---
Code:
638caa29da601110.b none swap sw
638caa29da601110.a / ffs rw 1 1
638caa29da601110.l /home ffs rw,nodev,nosuid 1 2
638caa29da601110.d /tmp ffs rw,nodev,nosuid 1 2
638caa29da601110.f /usr ffs rw,nodev 1 2
638caa29da601110.g /usr/X11R6 ffs rw,nodev 1 2
638caa29da601110.h /usr/local ffs rw,wxallowed,nodev 1 2
638caa29da601110.k /usr/obj ffs rw,nodev,nosuid 1 2
638caa29da601110.j /usr/src ffs rw,nodev,nosuid 1 2
638caa29da601110.e /var ffs rw,nodev,nosuid 1 2

The "permissions" error could be a W^X issue. If so, you could add wxallowed to /tmp. A check of /var/log/messages may be helpful, as W^X violations are recorded there.

Another option would be to reach out to Landry Breuil, who maintains the application.

And, now that I think of it, you have nosuid set, which could also be a "permissions" related issue for whatever this script needs to do.

I did some experimenting... I think setting /tmp with the wxallowed in the /etc/fstab fixes the problem, and compilation was able to proceed... Thanks much...

Sidetrack:
I never realized that compiling mozilla firefox from ports requires a very large $WRKOBJDIR, my /tmp folder quickly run out of space...

Thank you very much. I hope this will serve as a learning experience for everyone.
