mozilla instalation problems
 
Hello.
Installing mozilla on SID gives me a lot of errors:
Code:

Unpacking mozilla-browser (from .../mozilla-browser_2%3a1.7.6-1_i386.deb) ...
Setting up mozilla-browser (1.7.6-1) ...

done.

It looks like mozilla works by itself. However, i cant make it work together with RSSOwl as its internal browser, the reason Im installing mozilla in the first place.
Code:

java: relocation error: /usr/lib/mozilla/components/libcaps.so: undefined symbol: JS_HoldPrincipals
and then RSSOwl crashes.

I know running SID means things will brake once in a while :rolleyes:
Any help is welcome, thank you.

Not sure what is going on here, are you installing things one by one?

Usually I use synaptic and let it sort everything out for me and Good Things Happen.

So this is a Wild Guess for you...

Fire up synaptic, reload the package files, and remove the moz packages you have installed and then reinstall them again.

No, the thing is I dont even use mozilla, but I need it for RSSOwl to function properly. And RSSOwl is not in debian repository.
Im installing via apt-get install mozilla-browser. Ive also tried purging and reinstalling, and building debs from source and still get the same result.

Hmm. Ok, The debian packagers have got excessively cunning with packaging Mozilla. Their mozilla version is definitely no longer "vanilla".

At this stage just pull down a binary version straight from mozilla.org and install that. Dead easy.

I see RSSOwl is a java thingy. Java is non-free so the Debian support is a bit iffy. I have had best luck installing the java-common package and then
pulling the Java sdk down from java.sun.com and installing that.

You probably need to put in a shambolic link
/usr/local/mozilla/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so -> /usr/lib/j2sdk-1.4.2/jre/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/libjavaplugin_oji.so
