Mozilla won't start on HP-UX.

When I run ./ on HP-UX 11.00 I get the following error message:

error: No such file or directory

If I try to run ./mozilla-bin the message is:

/usr/lib/ Can't open shared library: ../../dist/bin/

No "core" file is produced. The browser just won't start.

you should be running ./mozilla not any of the things you mentioned here.

you didn't indicate whether this is a cvs build or someeone's packaged binary.

if you built it yourself please check to see whether there was a build error 
when trying to build that library. and please provide the environment script or 
something and whatever else might be useful.

if it's a package please indicate who made it (what branch/tag they made it 
from) and whatever else might be useful.

i'm temporarily reassigning to build config and i'll return to b-g (or a more 
appropriate component) as soon as we get more info.

2 things:
-first, do you have gtk & glib installed in /opt/gtk+ & /opt/glib?
 if you do not (this would explain your problem) you need to install
 them.  They can be found at
 (we are using 1.2.7 of both, but 1.2.8 should work)
-second once you do get it running, there was a problem with 0.8.1 
 & 0.9 where it would 'freeze' up when running, the workaround
 is to set MOZ_DISABLE_XIE=1 in your env before running

0.9.1 should be out shortly and won't have the XIE problem
We will also be putting up 2 binaries... once that links against
the glib/gtk libs from and another one that links 
against HP-supported glib/gtk libs that Ximian produced.  These
are downloadable from HP site (which will be mentioned on the
mozilla download site).

Mozilla works as expected when following Jim's recommendations
(installing GTK, etc.).

Maybe we should close this bug, and leave to the HP-UX gurus the
documentation of these pre-requisites.

Thanks, Jim!
