Netscape 6.0 Linux 2001-06-19-08-trunk Build The browser fails to open after linux installation, or when trying to open the browser manually. The error I receive is: " ... moz_debug=0 moz_debugger= /home/smoketest/netscape/mozilla-bin: error in loading shared libraries: libnullplugin.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory " To Reproduce: 1. Go to the above link and download the 2001-06-19-08-trunk Linux build. 2. Install the build 3. At the end of installation you will see the error.
adding smoketest to keywords so it shows up on the radar.
ccing installer folks on the off chance this is an installer problem although I suspect packaging since apparently the tarball works.
Checked the browser.xpi for libnullplugin.so. It appears to be packaged fine. Peter, Please attach your install.log found next to the browser binary to this bug. Thanks.
This has already been fixed. Re-pull xpfe/boostrap/Makefile.in and make -C xpfe/bootstrap
cls, I noticed your checkin at 10, but it didn't seem related to our Linux blocker at all. Can I respin with _just that fix?
cc'ing cls since he probably didn't see my last comment. Chris, please inform both the shriff and the build guy of the day about your checkings during tree closure.
Sorry, I actually didn't realize that was the problem until after dbaron asked me about shrike's orange streak post checkin. Yes, all you need to rebuild is that single directory.
mrking fixed for cls
*** Bug 86562 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Reopening this. I cannot open the browser after installing Linux 2001-06-21-11-trunk or 2001-06-21-15-trunk builds. Right after the install completes, nothing happens. When I then try to start manually, I get the Activation screen, but I can't get past it. If I cancel Activation, nothing further happens. If I go through the Activation procedure, nothing further happens; if I then try starting the browser again, I get the Activation prompt again, with the choice of starting with the account I just created. But again, nothing happens after clicking OK.
Note that I tested on Linux 7.1 Ja.
might you be encountering bug 87119, which was moved into bugscape as http://bugscape.mcom.com/show_bug.cgi?id=6758 since it's commercial-only? [due to the activation stuff.] a possible workaround for you [i was able to use 2001.06.21.11 linux comm bits, installer stub installation]: i just used the command-line to create [netscape -CreateProfile <profile-name>] and launch [netscape -P <profile-name>] profiles.
Correction: I tested on Redhat 7.0 Ja, not 7.1. I will investigate per sairuh's comments and update as appropriate.
reclosing since this is a netscape bug dealing with activation, it should not be in bugzilla. Please put any comments in the bugscape bug.
