Description Michal Jaegermann 2002-05-09 00:33:46 EDT
Description of Problem:

After an update from 7.2 installation Mozilla bombs out on every attempt
of a startup.  Attached strace seems to point to a missing
/usr/lib/mozilla/components/libtimer_gtk.so which is nowhere to be found.
Possibly this is not a reason (see below).

Luckily Netscape still works as I would have problems to file that report
(galeon is also adversly affected).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
mozilla-0.9.9-7

How Reproducible:
every time

Additional Information:
	
These are all mozilla packages which were installed by an update:

mozilla-0.9.9-7
mozilla-nspr-0.9.9-7
mozilla-nss-0.9.9-7

A Skipjack "from scratch" test installation does not show this problem
despite the fact that 'libtimer_gtk.so' also missing there but a list
of mozilla packages installed there is far more extensive:

mozilla-0.9.9-5.i386.rpm
mozilla-chat-0.9.9-5.i386.rpm
mozilla-devel-0.9.9-5.i386.rpm
mozilla-dom-inspector-0.9.9-5.i386.rpm
mozilla-js-debugger-0.9.9-5.i386.rpm
mozilla-mail-0.9.9-5.i386.rpm
mozilla-nspr-0.9.9-5.i386.rpm
mozilla-nspr-devel-0.9.9-5.i386.rpm
mozilla-nss-0.9.9-5.i386.rpm
mozilla-nss-devel-0.9.9-5.i386.rpm
mozilla-psm-0.9.9-5.i386.rpm

and things are still ok after replacing these with 0.9.9-7 versions.

Comment 2 Michal Jaegermann 2002-05-09 17:50:30 EDT
Rerunning /usr/lib/mozilla/mozilla-rebuild-databases.pl, on an advice
of Christopher, appears to solve the issue on the first look.  Apparently
something forgot to do that in an upgrade process.
Comment 3 Christopher Blizzard 2002-05-09 17:51:59 EDT
Did you happen to have only the mozilla package installed?  (no mail or psm?)
Comment 4 Christopher Blizzard 2002-05-09 17:58:39 EDT

Comment 5 Michal Jaegermann 2002-05-09 18:54:25 EDT
I did not add any packages to mine "main" installation.  They are the same
as originally reported. OTOH I did not use 'mozilla' very much.  Usually
'galeon' for me is more then enough. :-)  But I did check that it does retrieve
few various sites.

I am typing this right now using 'galeon' in question. :-)
Comment 6 Christopher Blizzard 2002-05-09 19:50:11 EDT
What does rpm -qa|grep ^mozilla" give you?
Comment 7 Michal Jaegermann 2002-05-09 19:55:36 EDT
:-)
$ rpm -qa | grep '^moz'
mozilla-0.9.9-7
mozilla-nss-0.9.9-7
mozilla-nspr-0.9.9-7
Comment 8 Christopher Blizzard 2002-05-09 20:00:47 EDT
Yeah, I'll bet that was caused by a bug I just fixed in the rpm spec file.
Comment 9 Peter Englmaier 2002-05-13 12:25:56 EDT
Hi, I had the same problem and fixed it with the command
/usr/lib/mozilla/mozilla-rebuild-databases.pl
given above. I only had/have two packages installed:
mozilla-nspr-0.9.9-7
mozilla-0.9.9-7
Have fun!
Peter.
