Description

Created by Julien PLISSONNEAU DUQUENE (jplissd@atlantic-line.fr) on Friday, August 14, 1998 9:19:25 AM PDT
Additional Details :

I compiled mozilla-export (with a few problems, makefile,
#include changes, file copies ...) with
egcs-2.90.29 980515
glibc-2.0.6
lesstif (recent version)

However, like communicator binary version I downloaded from
Netscape site, it crashes when I try to launch it, after two
warning.

It still displays -help and -version.

Unfortunately I can't investigate more now.

Need more info.  Check the libc versions (release notes),
how about a stack trace?

glibc 2.0.6 compiled on the system itself.
egcs-2.90.29 980515 (egcs-1.0.3 release)
Other major software (kernel, emacs, gcc, gnome/gimp/gtk+associated libs)
compiled without any problem, excepted ... gdb (maybe you know another
way of getting a stack trace ?)
However with a few printf I determined that the crash occurs in a
fe_createBookmarks function. I did not yet have time to hack in the
function itself, nor to get the right version of gdb.

You requested a stack trace ...

It might be a bug of lesstif ...
I use lesstif-0.86.0

A colleague achieved in running mozilla with the same tools, same lesstif, but
under libc5.

I use glibc-2.0.7-19 and all is ok both with motif and lesstif.

Try glibc207.
