Description dominique 2011-01-05 13:18:40 EST
Today there is an update to firefox-4.0-0.8b8.fc15.x86_64, and firefox don't work.
In console I have this error message:

[dominique@localhost ~]$ firefox
Error: /usr/lib64/firefox-4/firefox not found
       /usr/lib/firefox-4/firefox not found

I downgrade to firefox-4.0-0.7b8.fc15.x86_64 and firefox work.

Comment 2 Martin Stransky 2011-01-05 15:50:22 EST
It's supposed to be launched by /usr/bin/firefox...what happens when you run it with full path?
Comment 3 Ray Strode [halfline] 2011-01-05 16:49:59 EST
$ sh -x /usr/bin/firefox
++ basename /usr/bin/firefox
+ cmdname=firefox
++ uname -m
+ MOZ_ARCH=x86_64
+ case $MOZ_ARCH in
+ MOZ_LIB_DIR=/usr/lib64
+ '[' '!' -x /usr/lib64/firefox-4/firefox ']'
+ '[' '!' -x /usr/lib/firefox-4/firefox ']'
+ echo 'Error: /usr/lib64/firefox-4/firefox not found'
Error: /usr/lib64/firefox-4/firefox not found
+ '[' -d /usr/lib ']'
+ echo '       /usr/lib/firefox-4/firefox not found'
       /usr/lib/firefox-4/firefox not found
+ exit 1

$ stat /usr/lib*/firefox-4/firefox
stat: cannot stat `/usr/lib*/firefox-4/firefox': No such file or directory

Commenting out the checks for /usr/lib*/firefox-4/firefox in /usr/bin/firefox makes it work ok.

Not exactly on x86_64:

+ exec /usr/lib/firefox-4/run-mozilla.sh /usr/bin/xulrunner /usr/lib/firefox-4/application.ini
firefox: line 264: /usr/lib/firefox-4/run-mozilla.sh: No such file or directory
firefox: line 264: exec: /usr/lib/firefox-4/run-mozilla.sh: cannot execute: No such file or directory

It should be /usr/lib64/firefox-4.
Comment 6 Martin Stransky 2011-01-06 05:01:03 EST
Should be fixed in firefox-4.0-0.10b8.fc15.
Comment 7 Nicolas Berrehouc 2011-01-06 05:49:06 EST
