From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.73 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.15 i586)
BuildID:    060620

When using ./mozilla-installer it crash's during installation.
sometimes when using --sync i get an async error and it seems to freeze the
program and not segfault.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run ./mozilla-installer
2. type run --sync
3. Select typical installation
4. click OK

Actual Results:  When it says Installing Mail & News... It says Processing file
164 of 164 and crash's.
./ No such file or directory.
nNCL: registering deferred (0)

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

Expected Results:  Installed mozilla and not crash? :)

I did notice I dont have the following librarys reported as not being found by

 I have zlib 1.1.3 as a shared library but compiled as 

I get the same stack trace if i do custom for any of the programs.

Remote display or are you on the host terminal?  What build?  Also, please see 
bug 36781 to determine if this is a dup.  Thanks.
Ever confirmed: true

And BTW, if you look at the mozilla-installer shell script, it already runs 
./mozilla-installer-bin --sync.

It's similiar as 36781 with the async problem, however I dont have remote
displays, I run X on the same machine as the display. As for bug 36781, I dont
"Get these "cannot unlink" and "cannot remove directory" msgs (for .tmp 
directories)." I modified the script so i can run gdb as well, exec gdb
./mozilla-installer, and then i type run --sync which is the correct syntax for
running mozilla-installer-bin --sync. It reproduces same error with or without
gdb and with or without the script modificationk, the same problem still
occurs.I went ahead and did a diff test like in bug 36781

It doesn't exactly look like bug 36781, but a few similiarties.
I tested it witht todays build 2000060708

RH 6.2 stock installation, I take it?  Hardware specs?

Can you reproduce this on a RedHat 6.2 Linux configuration?

I've tried changing video drivers, window managers, same error occurs. It
appears to install the Navigator and Mail and news, however chatzilla never gets
installed. It appears to run fine however I haven't done extensive testing other
than running it, opening mail, and changing to

Never mind what I said about testing on an RH 6.2 system.  When you get a chance 
please reproduce this in our labs on a Slackware 7 system.  Thanks.

I have been given to understand that it may be the case we don't QA the 
Slackware 7 platform.  In addition, I am not equipped with sucha a configuration 
to debug.  In order to resolvethis, I am open to patches for the bug.  Let's see 
if Grace comes up with a Slackware 7 machine.

Not sure if I am seeing the same thing- on first attempt at install I get the 
following error.
Xlib: unexpected async reply (sequence 0x3c90)!
and install hangs.

A second attempt is successful as in the past (coredump at finish)

Comment 11

I do recieve that same error, however it appears to happen randomly and not
every time, however, I dont remember it ever happening without using --sync, but
i could be mistaken.

Comment 12

Oh, on another note, does it infact install Chatzilla as well? I try mozilla
-chat but the browser just comes up, and there's nothing chat related under
tools..or anything resembling the word "chat" in the mozilla directory, find
/usr/local/mozilla | grep "chat" or find /usr/local/mozilla | grep "Chat"

Comment 13

18 years ago
now that you mention it- I do not see it being installed and checked directories 
and it is not part of installed build...part of gunzipped build though

sgehani, granrose-shouldn't chatzilla be part of this installed build?

Comment 14

18 years ago
dunno. if you do a custom install, it shows chatzilla as an option, but I've 
never tried to use it after installation.

cc'ing leaf for his input.

Comment 15

18 years ago
Yes, chatzilla should be part of this install.  Dan added it XP.  CC'ing him.

Comment 16

color me blind! chatzilla available in custom install 
Hmm, does that mean chatzilla is not part of the typical installation? I made 
it part of typical on the windows and mac mozilla builds, probably should be on 
Linux as well.

Comment 18

Linux currently has the 4 options, Typical (most common options, without Java), 
Complete (with Java), Navigator only, and Custom.

Comment 19

Two things:
1> The chatzilla/options discussion is way off topic.  Let's leave that out of 
this bug.
2> The options in mozilla are all lies right now.  I'll be fixing this to remain 
in line with the commercial options: typical and custom.  While doing this I'll 
add chatzilla to typical.

This bug still seems to exist. I just did a clean install of Slackware 7.1 and
the backtrace is still the same.

It crashed on a Typical Install after installing file 54 of 54 of Chatzilla.
What Glibc version are you guys using? I'm running Glibc 2.1.3, is it possible
it's a pthread bug?

Debugging the problem on Linux yielded exactly the same results.  This looks 
like a dup of 36781.

Yes, bug 36781 has morphed into a problem that manifests on local displays too.
