Description Andrew Schultz 2002-01-15 11:48:24 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux alpha; en-US; rv:0.9.7) Gecko/20011226

Description of problem:
I upgraded to glibc-2.2.90-3, and mozilla (0.9.7 from rpm) now seg-faults
immediately when I run it.  Downgrading to glibc-2.2.4-19.3 fixed the problem.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. upgrade to glibc-2.2.90-3.alphaev6.rpm
2. run mozilla

Actual Results:  segmentation fault

Expected Results:  mozilla should run

Additional info:

98+% of the rest of my system is not rawhide (updated RH7.1)

Comment 2 Andrew Schultz 2002-01-24 19:28:06 EST
Seems to work fine on an Athlon-XP system.  Probably Alpha-only.
Comment 3 Andrew Schultz 2002-05-03 14:11:46 EDT
Mozilla (1.0rc1) works fine with the current rawhide (2.2.5-34) glibc.
Comment 4 Andrew Schultz 2004-04-13 09:23:14 EDT
Alpha is dead.
