I am using mozilla 1.2. I have tried this with beta and a couple of nightlies with no luck. I am running the xft version. The rpm installs perfectly but on start-up from inside the directory with ./run-mozilla.sh when the script runs ./mozilla-bin it crashes with ./mozilla-bin: relocation error: /usr/lib/mozilla-1.2b/components/libgfx_gtk.so: undefined symbol: FcPatternReference I have a very customized Linux box which is loosly based on redhat 8. Some rpms are newer and some older. As I said before though, the rpm installs fine. This happens with gdkxft preloaded in X and with it not preloaded. Other gtk based software works fine and is rendered correctly.
> start-up from inside the directory with ./run-mozilla.sh when the script runs don't do that. run /usr/bin/mozilla I don't know if that will fix anything or not, but it's worth a shot. Have you tried a standard (non-xft) build? Have you tried a non-rpm build?
I have tried with /usr/bin/mozilla which does nothing. I started it up as a new user and it created the .mozilla directories but then just hung. I have an older version of the software which works fine (what I am typing this on) but I'm interested in the xft version of 1.2b. And...no..I trust rpms and I use them almost exclusively on my box and especially for something like mozilla that is big.
does it still happen using latest nightly build ? http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/nightly/latest
Resolving due to lack of response from reporter please reopen if the problem persists with a new build of Mozilla
