Problem building Atom


Hi! I’m building Atom on Ubuntu 14.04 and I’m getting an error:
Dumping symbols in /home/tf101/atom-master/out/symbols
Unable to find the “dump_syms” (It is shown 22 times)

But dump_syms is found on my system. Any advice?
Thanks in advance (I hope it’s not the wrong place to ask >.>


You might have better luck on the slack chat. Some of the Atom people more familiar with that sort of thing should see it there. And so long as you’re doing it on a supported OS, they should be able to help.


Thank you, I’ll write there :stuck_out_tongue:


Hi the error message (Unable to find the “dump_syms” ) appears when the dump_syms command is not found.

You need to install google-breakpad ->
