Firefox failed to load module errors


First off, I am using Backtrack 5 R2 64 bit Gnome on a Dell Studio 1747.

So this isn't an issue that prevents Firefox from operating but I am wondering about these errors. Whenever I run firefox from command line I get this log:

root@bt:~# firefox
/usr/lib/gio/modules/libgioremote-volume-monitor.so: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS64
Failed to load module: /usr/lib/gio/modules/libgioremote-volume-monitor.so
/usr/lib/gio/modules/libgvfsdbus.so: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS64
Failed to load module: /usr/lib/gio/modules/libgvfsdbus.so
/usr/lib/gio/modules/libgiogconf.so: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS64
Failed to load module: /usr/lib/gio/modules/libgiogconf.so

The research I've done suggests that not all of the ia32-libs are installed so I ran apt-get install ia32-libs from command line which gives me this log:

root@bt:~# apt-get install ia32-libs

I am unsure why it says that fglrx is not configured. I did install the ati-driver-installer-10-4-x86.x86_64.run driver via command line, (as System>Administration>Hardware drivers gave me the error: "SystemError: installArchives() failed") and it worked fine.

Also, if you know how I can fix the possible missing firmware errors, I would appreciate that as well. I have searched those errors but found nothing useful so far as fixing them.

Are you using 32 bit firefox on a 64 bit box? Looks like it.

I am unsure. The firefox I'm using came with my OS when I downloaded and Help>About firefox doesn't give me much info.

Anyway, I solved the module issue apparently there are 3 lib folders (lib, lib32, and lib64), I checked each of the mentioned modules via readelf -h <modulename>. apparently the lib modules were ELFCLASS64 so I just copied the modules from lib32 (after verifying they were ELFCLASS32) into lib.

As for the fglrx issue (which I was also having on my desktops Radeon HD5850), I followed a suggestion I found on another forum: insert the live-dvd (or flashdrive)
in the grub press TAB to edit boot

you well see somthing like this file=/cdrom/preseed/ubuntu.seed boot=casper initrd=/casper/initrd.gz

add xforcevesa noapic noapci nosplash irqpoll -- after initrd.gz

This solved the issue for both my Mobility Radeon HD4650 and my Radeon HD5850.

As for the missing firmware issue, I ran lspci -vnn to determine exactly what Network Interface Chipset I had installed (RTL8111/8168b) and which driver it was using (8169). I then downloaded the correct driver from Realtek's Website and attempted to install it via command line but I kept getting an error saying that it couldn't execute the binary file. (Sorry I can't remember exactly what it said, but that's it in essence.) I tried a couple different download types, .tar and bzip2 and ran chmod +x <filename>, but it did not solve anything for me.

So I am still having the "missing firmware" issue but the others are solved. If anyone can help me with the firmware issue I would appreciate it. :-) On second thought, I will mark this as solved as my original question is solved.

On the lib dirs, you should either have

1. /lib, /lib64 for 32 & 64 bit libs respectively.
2. /lib32, /lib for 32 & 64 bit libs respectively on Debian and offspring.

That of course is replicated in /usr/, /usr/local, & /opt
file is your man.

file *.so.* |grep 32 (or 64)

For the firmware, get the names from syslog. I notice an ATI binary blob. Some kernels did not ship ATI firmware (2 files). I have R600_rlc.bin & R700_rlc.bin if you need which I had to add separately.

I am assuming the error is because my computer is using the r8169 driver so it thinks that I should have 8169 firmware when I in fact have the 8168 hardware. I am now trying to get the 8168 drivers installed with no luck.

check in /var/log/messages for the firmware requests

Quote:
grep firmware /var/log/messages |tail -n 25
If that doesn't show it, drop the |tail -n 25, and replace it with |less

grep firmware /var/log/messages |tail -n 25 did nothing.

Code:
root@bt:~# grep firmware /var/log/messages |tail -n 25 
root@bt:~#
grep firmware /var/log/messages |less gave me about the same:

I don't know your distro.

In /var/log there some big files. Choose the biggest, and grep that

ls -lh /var/log/*
