I have rh 8, and just uploaded the new fixed moz rpms (mozilla-1.0.2-1.8.0 etc)
using up2date. I have galeon-1.2.6-0.8.0.

I have same problem, but I'm also getting crashes. When I go to
http://linuxtoday.com/ today, mozilla starts to connect and then disappears.
EVERY time.


Comment 2 wilburn 2003-07-15 23:05:18 UTC
I don't have the crashing problem with linuxtoday.com, so these effects may have
different causes.

Comment 3 Wu Yongwei 2003-07-16 06:12:33 UTC
I am using RH 7.3 and Galeon would not start as the bug reporter described.  My
workaround was to remove the /usr/lib/mozilla directory and create a symbolic
link at /usr/lib/mozilla to /usr/lib/mozilla-1.0.2.  Galeon displayed a warning
when run, but this seemed to work well and I have not found crashes so far (and
I am now in Galeon).

I think a better way is to release a new Galeon version compatible with Mozilla

Comment 4 Bart Garst 2003-07-18 14:57:19 UTC
I tried both the symbolic link work-around (/usr/lib/mozilla ->
/usr/lib/mozilla-1.0.2) and setting MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME to /usr/lib/mozilla-1.0.2.

Both resulted in the error:

/usr/bin/galeon-bin: relocation error: /usr/bin/galeon-bin: undefined symbol:

System - RedHat 8
Galeon - 1.2.6

See also bug #99460 which is somewhat related.

Comment 6 wilburn 2003-07-23 18:32:19 UTC
Installing mozilla*-1.0.2-2.8.0 and galeon-1.2.11-1.8.0 fixes this for me. I
suggest closing this bug.

Comment 7 Christopher Blizzard 2003-08-22 17:52:07 UTC
Yes, this should be fixed now.
