From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.3) Gecko/20010801 BuildID: 2001080104 I've recently upgraded from jre to jdk. When I did the installation, I ran 'cp /usr/java/jdk1.3.1/jre/plugin/i386/ns600/libjavaplugin_oji.so /usr/local/mozilla/plugins'. Then everytime I ran a java applet, mozilla would crash. I have a talkbalk enabled version of mozilla, but whenever it would crash, mozilla would only crash and not bring up the feedback info like usual (this in itself could be registered as a bug). Mozilla crashes only when the .so file is cp'd instead of ln'd into /usr/local/mozilla/plugins. Not a huge problem or anything, but I thought I would register it in case anyone else runs into something similar. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.cp /usr/java/jdk1.3.1/jre/plugin/i386/ns600/libjavaplugin_oji.so /usr/local/mozilla/plugins 2. open java.sun.com in mozilla 3. crash I don't think it's relevent to the bug, but just in case, the system is running redhat linux 7.1 with SGI's XFS patch.
Confirming. Probably a dupe, though.
Same behavior with 0.9.3 under RH 6.2 linux: Mozilla crashed with message in console: INTERNAL ERROR on Browser End: Exec of "java_vm" failed: 2 < System error?:: No such file or directory More serious: Try to cp, start browser and then open console via Tools->Java Console. Then Current screen will be locked and you need to kill mozilla from other machine to unlock it.
