Mozilla built on Darwin 7 crashes at startup, even before building a stack (gdb core: no stack).  Mozilla 
built on MacOSX 10.3 will not run on Darwin OS because it links to the CoreServices framework which is 
proprietary and MacOSX only.

PS : I also tried mozilla-1.7.2 on OpenDarwin-7.2.1 and it crashed at startup too.
I also tried various configurations.

MacOSX builds require CoreServices and I don't believe that's going to change
for the functionality required.  

When building on Darwin 7, what options are you using?  Please attach the
configure output of the build.

config.log for mozilla 1.7.2 on darwin 7.2.1

./configure --enable-default-toolkit=gtk2 --mandir=${prefix}/share/man \
		--enable-optimize --enable-crypto --enable-calendar

I meant the actual ouptut of the configure command. config.log is a bit harder
to follow.  

Does a debug build (--disable-optimize --enable-debug) exhibit the same crash
w/o a stack behavior?

what I tried in gdb

Note that I am not very good with gdb (if you have not guessed yet)

The configure output and gdb output are both with --disable-optimize and
--enable-debug.  I also have the whole build output if you want (5 Mb)

I see the gdb attempt is after doing a 'make install'.  You'll need to run gdb
with the proper library paths set for that.  Just try `./mozilla -g` .  Also,
have you tried running mozilla from dist/ ?  

cd dist/bin && ./mozilla

./mozilla -g ! thanks for that one

The program gets through a bunch of _dyld_* functions
and then seems to crash in crt.c which is referenced in
/usr/src/APPLE... (probably crt2.o)

So I tried to build it with FSF gcc-3.4.0 but the build does not
get passed 
../../dist/bin/xpidl -m header -w -I. -I../../dist/idl -o
_xpidlgen/nsIConsoleListener nsIConsoleListener.idl
Assertion failed: state->tree, file xpidl_idl.c, line 60

note that for FSF gcc, I had to quickly remove -fPascal-strings and -Wmost since
thos flags were not recognized.  Maybe it is related with the build failure.

Can you attach the complete stack trace from the './mozilla -g' debug run?

bryner, any ideas what's going on here with gdb?

Could someone point me from which version did mozilla begin to include
CoreServices ?  I know 1.0.0 does not show this problem.

Mozilla 1.0.0 doesn't build on Darwin/OSX, either, iirc.  We didn't officially
start supporting Darwin/OSX until Mozilla 1.3 or so and afaik, we've always
required CoreServices.  We didn't start supporting non-OSX darin builds until
some time after that (moz1.5?).  

There is a related bug (bug #249028) to make non-OSX darwin builds not require
CoreServices as they currently do.
