Installing plugger-3.2-2.i386.rpm causes "Bus error" in Netscape

This package is on the 6.2 Powertools disk.  Sorry for having list it under
bugzilla.  It doesn't come up in the list of components.

Comment 1 Tim Powers 2000-05-17 14:13:59 UTC
What version of netscape are you running? Also, did you run netscape prior to
installing plugger, of after?

I am have 4.72-6 package versions of netscape running on my machine and I can't
reproduce this problem with plugger-3.2-2.


Comment 2 phostetl 2000-05-18 17:22:59 UTC
I am running netscape-communicator-4.72-6 on a clean 6.2 install.

Netscape works prior to installing plugger, fails to run after installing
plugger, and then runs again after removing plugger.

I can duplicate this problem.  I can do a stack trace when I have time and try
to see what is going on.

Comment 3 phostetl 2000-05-30 20:38:59 UTC
I updated to netscape communicator 4.73-1 (Sorry, I need the box for
development).  I can not reproduce this error with 4.73-1.

It was consistently reproducible with 4.72-6.

Comment 4 Tim Powers 2000-05-30 20:45:59 UTC
I haven't been able to reproduce this either. That's not to say that I haven't
ever seen it occur, since I have. We couldn't reproduce the problem on different
machines though. OK. We have a fix, new version of Netscape :)

Comment 5 Aleksey Nogin 2000-06-07 05:08:51 UTC
This problem was not fixed by a new version of Netscape. It was probably fixed
by tmpwatch removing the /tmp/ndebug file. See bug #11936 for more information.
