From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux 2.2.18 i586; en-US; 0.7) Gecko/20010112 BuildID: 2001011421 Mozilla works fine after initial installation. After installing the java plugin according to the procedures detailed on the Mozila WWW pages, Mozilla quits on loading. This happens with version 0.7 and the "daily build" version identified above. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Get the java plugin from ftp.netscape.com:/pub/netscape6/english/6.0/unix/linux22/jre.xpi and store it locally. 2. Open the directory where jre.xpi is in mozilla, then double click on jre.xpi. Confirm that the plugin is "trusted" and should be installed. 3. Notice that mozilla indicates that the installation is taking place, with various files being copied. Then the installation dialog disappears. 4. Quit mozilla, then load it again in the usual way. Actual Results: Mozilla displays some text and then quits, before opening any windows. Expected Results: Mozilla loads as usual and opens a browser window, without quitting. The messages displayed by mozilla leading up to the point where it quits: Registering plugin 15 for: "application/x-java-bean;version=1.1.3","Java(tm) Plug-in","" Registering plugin 16 for: "application/x-java-bean;version=1.2","Java(tm) Plug-in","" Registering plugin 17 for: "application/x-java-bean;version=1.2.1","Java(tm) Plug-in","" Registering plugin 18 for: "application/x-java-bean;version=1.2.2","Java(tm) Plug-in","" Registering plugin 19 for: "application/x-java-bean;version=1.3","Java(tm) Plug-in","" Registering plugin 20 for: "application/x-java-bean;jpi-version=1.3.0_01","Java(tm) Plug-in","" # # An unexpected exception has been detected in native code outside the VM.# Program counter=0x40993a1d # # Problematic Thread: prio=1 tid=0x8053e18 nid=0x25d0 runnable # INTERNAL ERROR on Browser End: Could not read ack from browser System error?:: Resource temporarily unavailable
In case it matters: this is linux version 2.2.18, based on a redhat 5.2 installation but it has been updated somewhat.
Uh Uh, excellent report email@example.com. Sending to OJI, they probably know what this garbage means. Note : first time I see this error reported...

what ver of glibc are you using? can you give us an ls of your nc4 and moz plugins directory? what is your patch? I presume you're running xfree 3.3.6? also, can you give us a santized environment variable list? (mostly looking for libpaths, javapaths ..)
Using glibc version 2.1.92 supplied by redhat. I also still have the glibc 2.0.7 libraries installed, since it appears that certain programs rely on their presence. /usr/lib/libc.so.6 is a symbolic link to libc-2.1.92, and is the file that mozilla appears to link with, so I presume it is using version 2.1.92. But I am not very clever with these things, so maybe I am making a mistake. $ ls -l /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins drwxr-xr-x 6 root root 1024 Jan 15 22:09 java2 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 44 Jan 16 10:54 libjavaplugin_oji.so -> java2/plugin/i386/ns600/libjavaplugin_oji.so -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 13376 Jan 13 07:59 libnullplugin.so Sorry, I am not sure what you mean about nc4 plugin directory... I seem to be using XFree86 3.3.5 I don't seem to have a LIBPATH or JAVAPATH environment variable. Could this be the problem? I tried running mozilla using run_mozilla, and it looks like it set up the following variables (still didn't work though):MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME=. LD_LIBRARY_PATH=. LIBRARY_PATH=.:./components SHLIB_PATH=. LIBPATH=. ADDON_PATH=. MOZ_PROGRAM=./mozilla-bin MOZ_TOOLKIT= moz_debug=0 moz_debugger= . being /usr/lib/mozilla , which is where the rpm installation put it. As I have mentioned I am not very familiar with this stuff, so I may be missing something obvious. I just hope I am not wasting anyone's time with something inconsequential. However, if there is anything that I can do to help clarify issues surrounding the problem, I will be happy to try it. Thanks.

Joe, can you please investigate this?

I've tried Mozilla0.7 with Java plugin, and it worked fine. Here are some questions: 1) You attached the following to show where the Java plugin lib was on your system: $ ls -l /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins drwxr-xr-x 6 root root 1024 Jan 15 22:09 java2 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 44 Jan 16 10:54 libjavaplugin_oji.so -> java2/plugin/i386/ns600/libjavaplugin_oji.so -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 13376 Jan 13 07:59 libnullplugin.so Should the directory be ".../mozilla/dist/bin/plugins"? 2) If you remove libjavaplugin_oji.so in the dir above, start mozilla again, go to a site with some applets (try java.sun.com), you'll be prompted to load Java plugin, just following the instructions. When done, exit mozilla, and restart mozilla again. Do you still have the same problem? 3) Could you run Netscape6 on your machine?
To answer your questions: 1. The directory I mentioned is where the RPM installed Mozilla. 2. The process you describe is what I used to install the Java plugin in the first place. 3. I haven't tried Netscape 6 although Netscape 4 works ok. However, having enabled the Java plugin again, it now appears to work fine in Mozilla and I can access several WWW pages that have Java without any problems. So we can say that in my case the problem is fixed. As far as I am aware, the only thing of consequence that has changed since the problem occured is the installation of XFree86 version 4.0.2, replacing version 3.3.5. I don't know whether it is necessary to look into the problem further; if there is anything I can do I would be happy to help. But in my particular case, all is well now.
Thanks for the replied information. Since the original problem is not a problem anymore, I'll mark it as WORKSFORME now.
