Description

5 years ago
I get the following when I try to launch the build downloaded from http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/b2g/nightly/latest-mozilla-central/b2g-19.0a1.en-US.linux-x86_64.tar.bz2

XPCOMGlueLoad error for file /home/username/Downloads/b2g/libxpcom.so:
libxul.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Couldn't load XPCOM.

This also effects the "Firefox OS Simulator" extension when used on 64-bit Linux.

I'm using Ubuntu.
I'm unable to reproduce on my Fedora 17 64-bit test VM.  But lots of people over in bug 723487 are having the same problem with Firefox and Thunderbird.
Today I set up a VMware VM and installed Ubuntu 12.10 64-bit into it.  Then I downloaded, unpacked, and ran the latest Central nightly build from the URL in comment 0.  But I still couldn't reproduce.

Nor can I reproduce with the latest version of Firefox OS Simulator (which bundles Aurora builds).

Perhaps there is something about running Linux in a VM that is different from running it on a real machine?  Or maybe it's an issue with older versions of the OS?  Two others reporting this problem over in r2d2b2g issue #105 <https://github.com/mozilla/r2d2b2g/issues/105> have Ubuntus 10.04 and 10.10.

I'm using Ubuntu 11.10, has anyone tried with Ubuntu 12.04 LTS?

No activity here since Nov2012, and bug 723487 has been fixed (since ~may2013). Anything left to do here, or can we call this FIXED?
