The 0.9.4 installer for Linux crashes when custom components are selected: - download mozilla-i686-pc-linux-gnu-0.9.4-installer.tar.gz - unpack it; cd into mozilla-installer - run ./mozilla-installer - "next" at readme - "accept" at license statement - choose "custom" components - pick alternate destination directory: "/tmp/mozilla-0.9.4" - "next", "yes" to confirmation - pick only Navigator and Quality Feedback Agent (i.e. deselect others) - "next" - "install" At this point installer chugs away, apparently downloading all the necessary files. During this process many warnings are seen in the controlling tty: Gtk-CRITICAL **: file gtkprogress.c: line 518 (gtk_progress_set_percentage): assertion `percentage >= 0 && percentage <= 1.0' failed. but these appear harmless. Finally, the gui dialog closes and it segfaults: ./mozilla-installer: line 55: 7965 Segmentation fault ./mozilla-installer- bin --sync $@ (the above text was typed by hand, because 0.9.3's copy+paste isn't working right, so it might have small typographical errors) After this failure I blew away the xpi/ directory and tried again, this time choosing Navigator Only instead of Custom, and the installer worked. So I think it has to do with the Custom option. My system stats: Linux on x86 glibc 2.1.2 gtk 1.2.8 kernel 2.2.19 At the time I was running 0.9.3 in another process, I doubt that matters though.

I don't understand why this is considered a duplicate of 89925. 89925 talks about an assertion failure (which I do not see, even when using the repro procedure in that bug report, in 0.9.4). This report documents a segfault, and it occurs under different circumstances.
I am seeing this with this setup type (Nav/talkback)- adding crash keyword I do not see with typical or complete setup types- during those installs, you get the gtk errors but the install completes. (bug 83478) no install log

Confirmed/reproduced by Grace. nominating because this is a supposedly supported configuration in the commercial installer as well. Grace, could you check windows too? Could easily be someone added an XP dependency.
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true
this is not crashing on WinNT-
crashing today - N6 branch- Navigator only
branch build 2001092404
Syd, is this something that you think is serious enough to fix for eMojo? From the comments it seems like it is. If you (or someone on your team) can fix this in the next day or so, please mark it nsbranch+ if it's a major crasher. If not, please mark as nsbranch-.
