Mozilla segfaults with new glibc
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:56:30 EDT
After installing glibc-2.3.2-66 mozilla segfaults everytime. Going back to -57
solves the problem. Perhaps need to recompile mozilla?

Chris, is there any way how to turn off SIGSEGV signal handlers in mozilla
(best via env variable)?

I've managed to get is segfault normally if I rm -rf ~/.mozilla first.
Don't know if it is the same segfault as seen otherwise though.
It dies in malloc, so I've tried ElectricFence.
deallocate_tsd there calls _pt_thread_death with a pointer which have been
Anyway, while I keep looking at this, could others who are experiencing this
problem try to downgrade to glibc-2.3.2-63 from RHEL3 beta (taroon)
and see if the problem is already there or happened between -63 and -66?
Mozilla/epiphany/MozillaFirebird works under glibc-2.3.2-63 from taroon.
Running linux kernel 2.6.0-test2(bk snapshot) and glibc-2.3.2-66 i686, I get the
mozilla segfault also. (mozilla-1.4-12) rpm-4.2.1-0.30 also has issues. The
LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.2.5 hack appears to workaround the issue, though.
I'm getting the segfault also with the new glibc, planning to downgrade
my sound server started getting errors also with glibc v.66, i've downgraded
to 57 and the sound and mozilla both work.
Please try ftp://people.redhat.com/jakub/glibc/2.3.2-68/
Mozilla, epiphany, etc. work again with -68. Thanks Jakub.
sound server still fails to start with -68
going back to 57 where it all works.
What soundserver? I am using arts and it is working fine!
Zach, are you still seeing glibc problems with the latest glibc (I think 2.3.2-98)?
I think this bug should be CLOSED/CURRENTRELEASE; this particular
problem with Mozilla & glibc has been dead for a long while now.
