I built the lightning-sunbird source (version 0.9+nobinonly-0ubuntu6~9.04~jjv2) obtained from http://ppa.launchpad.net/gnomefreak/ppa/ubuntu on a Jaunty arm device. The build did succeed but then Sunbird crashed on startup. Including the following Thunderbird change (from Thunderbird 2.0.0.22+build1+nobinonly-0ubuntu2) in Sunbird seemed to fix the Sunbird crash on startup.

fix LP: #385325 - crash in JS due to usage of wrong floating point number format;
    thanks Michael Casadevall for the research and locating the fix; patch created from
    hg rev 2538:3f78d5e894bc aka bmo #322806
    - add debian/patches/bz322806_arm-vfp-2538:3f78d5e894bc
    - update debian/patches/series

Are you saying that the thunderbird fix no longer makes sunbird crash on startup?

I have to add the 2 patches from thunderbird that Alexander and Michael just added, we than need a patch for arm to use gcc 4.4 when building. I have been waiting for Alexander to push sunbird so i can at least get some of the fixes out and i can work on arm/gcc stuff afterwards but i will ask again when i get time to get online for more than an hour

sunbird or lightning. sunbird and thunderbird should have nothing to do
with each other. i still have to maek subird use gcc-4.3 on arm. i
should have that done by monday i just have to figure out reversioning
of it since i screwed up my branch PPA is ubuntu6 and i would rather
combine them into ubuntu3 and hope i dont have to make a note on PPA to
tell users to downgrade once released. but ill get to everything by
monday i hope
