User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041111 Firefox/1.0 Build Identifier: Firefox 1.0.1 (posted for download on the main mozilla website.) It seems I'm missing a library when trying to install 1.0.1. I'm installing this on a x86 Fedora Core 3 (Linux) machine with an XFce windowing environment. I am currently running firefox 1.0 with no problems. Below are my steps I tried for installation. I'm attempting the install in my /usr/lib/firefox-1.0.1/ directory. The missing library libXp.so.6 is not found on my machine anywhere (find / -name libXp.so.6). I've removed firefox 1.0.1 and tried to reinstall 3 times, all with the same results. [root@netsnoop downloads]# mkdir /usr/lib/firefox-1.0.1 [root@netsnoop downloads]# mv firefox-1.0.1.installer.tar.gz /usr/lib/firefox-1.0.1/. [root@netsnoop downloads]# cd /usr/lib/firefox-1.0.1 [root@netsnoop firefox-1.0.1]# ls firefox-1.0.1.installer.tar.gz [root@netsnoop firefox-1.0.1]# tar -xzf firefox-1.0.1.installer.tar.gz [root@netsnoop firefox-1.0.1]# ls firefox-1.0.1.installer.tar.gz firefox-installer [root@netsnoop firefox-1.0.1]# cd firefox-installer/ [root@netsnoop firefox-installer]# ls config.ini firefox-installer-bin install.ini watermark.png firefox-installer header.png license.txt xpi [root@netsnoop firefox-installer]# ./firefox-installer [root@netsnoop firefox-installer]# /usr/lib/firefox-1.0.1/firefox-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libXp.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Run the install as noted above in the details. 2. 3. Actual Results: /usr/lib/firefox-1.0.1/firefox-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libXp.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory Expected Results: Firefox 1.0.1 should start up. I've posted a not on the Firefox General board but have not received a response. I can't imagine I'm the only one seeing this error.
libXp (client XPrint lib) is in xorg-x11-deprecated this is really a build config bug (the installer ran fine) although no such component exists in firefox, or needs to be rel-noted. But if 1.0 worked, did it not include Xprint and 1.0.1 does?
FYI: my firefox 1.0 is also linked against libXp.so.6
were you running the firefox that came with FC3?
I've seen other people have problems with this (along with the -linc issue, which I think we fixed, and perhaps one other similar issue).
(In reply to comment #3) > were you running the firefox that came with FC3? No. I had upgraded the firefox (0.10?) that came with FC3 to 1.0 using the default linux distribution that was on the firefox homepage (mozilla.org) and not via redhat update. Like I mentioned before, that install was OK. I have sucessfully updated firefox to 1.0.1 using the latest RPM distribution found at http://mirror.linux.duke.edu/pub/fedora/linux/core/3/i386/os/Fedora/RPMS/. It seems, to me, that the distribution on the firefox homepage might expect a library not found in Xorg but found in XFree86? I don't know, I'm not a X expert by any means.
The library is still in Xorg, but Red Hat put it in the deprecated-libs package because not many things use it (within Fedora/Red Hat-distributed packages, *nothing* uses it) and they are of the opinion that nothing should use it.
Firefox 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206 distributed from Mozilla.com does not have this library dependency. -> WORKSFORME
