Pls. reassign to correct component. I cannot launch today's mac commercial build. (20000229m15) The splash screen appears after installation and nothing hapens.
reassigning to sgehani

I am able to use Profile Manager (smoke and functional tests) but once a profile is selected whether it is new or migrated, I hang. I have to restart after each attempt.
Are these symptoms prevalent in the Mac build installed from the "raw" packaged bits (not the installer but: ftp://sweetlou/products/client/5.0x/macos/8.x/ppc/2000-02-29-08-M15/Netscape6-ma c.sea.bin)? If so, this needs to be reassigned to the profiler manager folks for further investigation. If not, we need to figure out the diff between both installations.
I tried both..but did not work.
Ok, so has anyone tried the mozilla builds, please?
adding myself to cc list :/ Grace: have you tried "Netscape6-mac" instead of the installer to see if it's an installer bug or not? How about Mozilla (same thing: try mozilla installer, then mozilla-mac)
I tried the mozilla Installer and had no problems I am testing the Netscape6-mac.sea.bin file now
Netscape6-mac.sea.bin- same behavior- (clean system/downloaded and unstuffed/created profile/hang)
The profile manager folks are probably better equipped to get traction on this bug. Reassiging to selmer and changing component accordingly.

Grace, one more suggestion: use Netscape 6 installer, select custom install, then select "browser" module only (do not install AIM, SpellChecker, FullCircle) and see if it still hangs. If yes, we need to trace the recent checkins in ns ...
There have been no changes in the profile manager backend in recent days. Syd, is this a resurrection of the hanging bug you killed last week? CCing Travis since his checkin may be related...

that was successful-using Netscape6 Installer installed browser only-created new profile- launched migrated a profile - launched
adding smoketest keyword.
Based on previous bustages, this looks to me like either a registration problem with one of the Netscape's modules or a missing dtd/xul file... Grace: can you continue and play with the custom install dialog until you find out which module is the culprit?
oops, mid-air collision... re-adding sfraser to the cc list
This works for me.
My debug build is showing the same problem. I'll debug.

Putting on dogfood radar.
Scrub that last comment; the same error shows up in the mozilla build, which works fine.
tested Netscape6Installer with Browser and Mail/News - successful I am now running with Browser/MailNews/InstantMessenger- but I am unable to find IM on the Tasks Menu.....not the case on Win32 or Linux
Looks like mcafee changed quite a few overlays in the commercial tree last night. Most likely his breakage. cc'ing mcafee
These are the differences between the chrome directories of the installed and uncompressed commercial build folders: Missing from the installed product: caps: locale: en-US: security.properties Global: content: about.html Global: content: fullcirclelogo.gif logo.gif overlays.rdf rsalogo.gif Navigator: content: default: NavSecurityOverlay.xul NavSecurityUI.js Navigator: content: overlays.rdf Navigator: skin: default: broken.gif lock.gif NavSecurityOverlay.css unlock.gif timebomb: content: default: expireText.xul warn.xul locale: en-US: timebomb.dtd Missing from the uncompressed product: global: content: overlays.rdf QA folks: whenever you find that there is a difference between the behaviour of installed and uncompressed builds, the answer usually lies in a difference between the files in the Chrome folder. I use BBEdit to generate a folder listing for both, and then compare them.
Simon: good point about the folder compare. However, today's crash happens with both installer and "pre-installed" deliveries. These are 2 different issues I think.
I have a fix.
Fix checked in.

CalendarOverlay.xul was missing from the ns/xpfe/global/resources/content/ ManifestDefaults file.
do we need a new bug for the mac installer stuff?
Actually, I just updated the ns copy of packages-mac with all the files Simon mentioned above. No need for a new bug this time. Grace: It would be good if you could do what Simon did today, maybe not with _every_ daily build, but at least a couple of times a week. As time goes by, we'll have more and more UI files added under the chrome directory, and we want to make sure they're not omitted by the installer. A directory diff is then highly recommended as part of the isntaller smoke test As far as test files are concerned (files located under dist viewer but that we _don't_ want to ship with the installer, they should all go in a separate "debug.xpi" or something...
build 2000030109 jj, where can I get a copy of BBEdit- I will be glad to spot check the two builds. Grace
