Segfaults in Mozilla, Mozilla Firebird, and Mozilla Thunderbird
 
Last night I installed Slackware 9 on this machine again, everything seemed to go fine and had no problems whatsoever.

Firebird and Mozilla were working fine, but after getting packages via slapt-get, I keep getting segfaults.

root@localhost:/home/ninjacow/mozilla-firebird# ./Mozilla-Firebird
/home/ninjacow/mozilla-firebird/run-mozilla.sh: line 454: 31020 Segmentation fault "$prog" ${1+"$@"}

Today, I downloaded Thunderbird. I get the same message.

root@localhost:/home/ninjacow/thunderbird# ./thunderbird
/home/ninjacow/thunderbird/run-mozilla.sh: line 454: 31020 Segmentation fault "$prog" ${1+"$@"}

Any idea what the heck is going on?

Looks like there is something happening in line 454 of /home/ninjacow/mozilla-firebird/run-mozilla.sh (but you knew that already :) ). It's a shell script, which means it's plain text that you can open up in a text editor. Try opening it up and seeing what's at like 454. Easiest way to do that is:

vi /home/ninjacow/mozilla-firebird/run-mozilla.sh
(once you are in vi)
454G

Post the contents of that line and the stuff around it. Methinks there's some program being run on that line that's causing a segfault.

p.s. - why is root trying to run ninjacow's copy of Firebird anyway?

Nevermind. I figured out it was java. After deleting linjavaplugin_oji.so from the plugins folder, Firebird started working. Mozilla and Thunderbird started working, too. Wonder why.

Thanks for your time, though. Muchly and happily appreciate it. :>
