Created by Julien PLISSONNEAU DUQUENE (email@example.com) 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 ... (gdb) backtrace #0 0x0 in ??

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. marking worksforme.
